Double pane glass windows are typically found in American homes. Though they provide more insulation that single pane windows, their thermal efficiency qualities concede when compared to triple glazed units. Since Euro style windows and doors aim to provide exceptional energy efficiency (that is one of their fundamental principles). They are manufactured with three panes of high quality glass and Argon or Krypton filling in between the panes.
Additionally, to the number of layers, the chemical structure of the glass itself can control its energy efficiency. Low-E glass, which is glass with low altitudes of iron, helps decrease the amount of electromagnetic heat absorbed from the sun.

We help our customers to balance the visible transmittance of Eurowindows while keeping the Solar Heat Gain Coefficient at an optimized level. Large custom windows without optimized sun heat gain provide natural light inside the room but might lead to overheating if they face South or West. It results to difficulties with setting heating and air conditioning and leads to discomfort. We strive to find a balance between excessive solar heat gain and level of visible transmittance to keep rooms light and energy efficient at the same time.
Sometimes rooms in the same house have different temperatures which is caused by the direction the windows and glass doors are facing and the amount of sun heat they are receiving. This difference often confuses the climate control system that can start working in the heating mode or, on contrary, turn on air conditioning based on the indicators in one of the rooms. It results in imbalanced temperatures inside the house which brings discomfort to the home dwellers. One of the best ways to prevent this imbalance from happening is to choose different type of glazing for windows in different rooms.
We all know that rooms facing different cardinal direction can have different temperatures. Rooms facing north are usually colder than rooms facing south which can be inconvenient during hot and cold seasons.
So windows in the northern parts of the house need to have high visible transmittance to let sunlight inside and high solar heat gain to keep rooms at a comfortable temperature. Windows facing south need a balance between visible transmittance and solar heat gain to ensure that rooms are light and not overheated in the summer.
We have a variety of glass combinations that suit our customers living in different locations in North America. We have options where the sun protection is applied to the windows but it does not harm the visual transparency of the window. It might not even be noticeable.
