Glass Performance

UV
UVA energy is the primary component responsible for fading of furnishings and overall deterioration of fabric quality. The more a window product can reject or absorb the sun's UV energy, the longer the life and quality of the furnishings being protected. All window products should strive for the lowest UV transmission value possible.
