Heat Mirror® Insulating Glass on Exhibit At Greenbuild Expo

Southwall Technologies, Inc., the worldwide innovator of high performance, energy-saving films and glass products, exhibited at the 6th annual Greenbuild Conference and Expo its widely acclaimed Heat Mirror insulating glass that provides insulating performance ranging from R-6 to R-20.

Superior to any low-e insulating glass currently available, Heat Mirror insulating glass contains from one to three technologically advanced low emissivity and solar reflective films mounted inside of an insulating glass unit to create multiple insulating cavities. These cavities, when filled with heat-blocking gasses such as Argon or Krypton, dramatically improve energy conservation performance. Using either uncoated or low-e coated glass, Heat Mirror insulating glass units provide a range of energy conservation performance to meet the unique requirements of commercial and residential new construction and renovation projects.

“Increasing recognition of the danger posed by global warming, dependence on foreign oil and the increasing need to improve energy efficiency in the built environment means that architects, developers and HVAC engineers must demand higher performing glass as a key component in reducing carbon emissions and achieving sustainable development,” said John Meade, Southwall's Director of New Business Development.

The Alpen Fiberglass Window containing Heat Mirror insulating glass was among the Top 10 Products of 2007 designated at the Expo by the editors of GreenSpec® and Environmental Building News. Using three suspended Heat Mirror coated films, low-conductivity xenon gas fill and pultruded fiberglass frames, the window from Alpen Energy Group achieves an astonishing R-20 center of glass insulation value.

More than 13,000 architects, building owners, code officials, contractors, developers, educators, engineers, facility managers, financial service providers, government officials, and others attended this year's Conference and Expo sponsored by the United States Green Building Council.
