8 Based on Advanced Low-E insulating glass with argon and foam-insulated
9 Based on a range between 3mm, standard performance dual-pane and triple-pane Advanced Low-E insulating glass with argon. Range includes with and without grilles and with and without foam insulation.
10 Based on a range between standard performance and impact as it relates to patio doors. Size limitations, frame types and configurations do apply for some performance levels.
11 Developed by Lawrence Berkeley Laboratories, the LBL damage function is a better predictor of fading damage than UV transmission. Lower values indicate less fading potential. (NOTE: This value does not consider visible light.)
