Glass

Energy Efficient

Glass is undeniably the most thought about, debated and prevalent component of a window or patio door. Timeline uses double strength (or thicker) glass on every product we manufacture. Heavier glass is more resistant to stress cracks and seal-failures, the leading causes of glass issues. Quality fenestration products always have double strength glass-Timeline always has double strength glass!

Combined with warm edge spacer technology, our glazing systems start showing their true potential. An insulating glass unit (glass, spacer, glass) has a significant influence on the energy performance of the total window. This important factor is why Timeline offers several different glazing choices. Glass can be clear insulated, LoĒ², LoĒ³-366™/Neat®, or multiple obscure, tinted and laminated choices. The newest option, triple-glass, combines LoĒ² with Cardinal 180.


Triple Pane Glass

Our most ecologically aware combination of glass products designed for projects requiring extraordinary energy efficiencies such as the ENERGY STAR® Northern Zone.

As the ENERGY STAR® program ratchets up its requirements, our glass offering continues to provide consumers with an ability to comply. Timeline's Triple Pane offering is the next generation insulating glass package that tackles these stricter requirements by combining LoĒ²-272® and LoE-180™.

This energy efficient glass lowers U-Values and retains more of your costly heat inside for the Northern and North/Central zones. Triple pane glass is argon gas-filled and assembled with Cardinal’s Endur IG spacer system for superior performance ratings.

LoĒ³-366™/Neat®

Controlling solar heat gain just became easier with the unparalleled performance of LoĒ³-366™/Neat® glass technology. By adding a third layer of silver coating, LoĒ³-366™/Neat® effectively blocks solar gain and reflects heat more efficiently.

In addition to reducing heat gain, the goal with any high performance glazing is clarity. LoĒ³-366™/Neat® was produced to show a minimum of exterior “mirror” reflectance and does not require smoke-colored tints that can darken your home’s interior.

 

Features & Benefits

  • Dual pane
  • Double strength glass
  • Three warm edge spacer options
  • High visibility
  • Three layers of silver
  • Best fading protection
  • Lower air conditioning bills
  • Ideal for warmer climates
  • Environmentally friendly– uses less energy
  • Gas or air filled

Dual Low-E2 (LoĒ i89™/LoĒ²-272®)

Our most ecologically aware combination of glass products designed for projects requiring extraordinary energy efficiencies.

As the ENERGY STAR® program ratchets up its requirements, our glass offering continues to provide consumers with an ability to comply. Lincoln’s Dual Low-E2 is the next generation insulating glass package that tackles these stricter requirements by combining LoĒ²-272® with a roomside (LoĒ-i89™ is on surface #4) low-e coating. Don’t worry, LoĒ-i89™ performs well without sacrificing glass clarity, doesn’t require special cleaning and provides additional UV protection.

This energy efficient glass lowers U-Values and retains more of your costly heat inside for the Northern and North/Central zones. Assembling Dual Low-E2 with our foam spacer system further improves U-value performance.

Insulated Glass Construction

Our insulating glass (IG) is constructed with four major components. It’s the quality of these components, sheet glass, desiccant material, sealants and spacers that set companies apart.

Let’s consider the sheet glass. We exclusively utilize double-strength glass (3.2mm) even on the smallest sizes. Some companies believe this should be an upgrade while we eliminated the thinner glass option many years ago.

Quality desiccant material is used to absorb moisture within the IG unit during assembly and the polyisobutylene sealant provides excellent adhesion to the glass with a low moisture vapor transmission rate for years of outstanding field performance.

Choose one of our premium warm-edge spacer systems listed here to complete your perfect glazing package.

Foam Spacer

  1. .188 extruded silicone foam.
  2. Integral desiccant material.
  3. Acrylic adhesive seal.
  4. .050 hot melt butyl seal.

Endur IG Spacer

  1. Stainless steel spacer.
  2. Desiccant material.
  3. “Polyisobutylene” primary seal.
  4. Specially formulated secondary seal.

 


Argon Gas

For greater energy efficiency, argon is added to all LoE glass units, at no cost to the customer, with the exception of those units requiring capillary/breather tubes. These units include, but are not limited to, glass 12” and less in width or height and units shipped over high elevations. Timeline does not guarantee that the initial argon fill rate will be maintained over the life of the product. Argon depletion may decrease energy efficiency.
