When it comes to reducing solar heat gain from the blazing sun, LoĒ³-340 simply has no equal. And because it’s not tinted, you enjoy a number of other advantages as well. First, there’s the cost savings of no tint. Then you avoid the disadvantages of tinting: the potential for thermal stress breakage and the potential need to heat treat the glass.
Tinted glass has several other glaring deficiencies. Regular tinted glass works by absorbing sunlight, so the glass becomes hot in the sun. The color of the glass also changes with its thickness. On the other hand, LoĒ³-340’s appearance and performance remain the same regardless of glass thickness.
