Clear insulated glass can block some UV rays
The right Low-E insulated glass can block the majority of UV rays
When looking for a home window replacement, consider UV resistance. Harmful UV rays can do more damage to your home than you might think. For example, if you don’t use the proper precautions on your windows, these rays can fade valuable items you have inside your home. The glass in Great Lakes® Window’s UV resistant windows can act as a sunscreen for your house, blocking damaging ultraviolet rays without noticeably reducing the light coming inside. The Low-E coating options on our replacement windows with UV protection increase window performance and help to significantly reduce fading and sun damage to your furnishings, carpets and floor, so they stay colorful and beautiful.
