Energy Saving Glass Systems by Restorations

Most window manufacturers utilize the same type of insulated glass in all the windows they produce, regardless of whether the windows are installed in the cold north or the hot south. Restorations® windows feature a series of high-performance glass systems engineered to provide maximum thermal efficiency and comfort in the particular region of the country where you live.

  • PASSIVE U

     is a 7/8″ overall dual glazed insulated glass unit featuring our exclusive Passive U glass, the XLEdge™ spacer system, and an air space filled with high density argon gas. The Passive U coating structure combines six layers of high performance, reflective materials for energy efficiency; well suited for Energy Star’s Northern Climate Zone.
    Also available: Passive U2, featuring Interior Low-E.

  • ULTRA U PLUS

     is a 7/8″ overall dual glazed insulated glass unit featuring our exclusive Ultra U Plus glass, the XLEdge™ spacer system, and an air space filled with high density argon gas. The Ultra U Plus coating structure combines eight layers of high performance, reflective materials for energy efficiency; well suited for Energy Star’s Northern and North Central Climate Zones.
    Also available: Ultra U Plus2, featuring Interior Low-E.

  • OMEGA 12

     is a 7/8″ overall dual glazed insulated glass unit featuring our exclusive Omega 12 glass, the XLEdge™ spacer system, and an air space filled with high density argon gas. The Omega 12 coating structure combines twelve layers of high performance, reflective materials for energy efficiency; well suited for all Energy Star Climate Zones.
    Also available: Omega 122, featuring Interior Low-E.

  • SolarClean

    Self-Cleaning Glass is a permanent titanium dioxide layer that is part of the outer glass surface. After installation, the Sun’s ultraviolet rays break down dirt and debris on the glass, which rain will then wash away. Best of all there’s no spotting or streaking, and it’s powered by nature.

  • AR90

     is a 7/8″ overall triple glazed insulated glass unit made up of two panes of Ultra U Plus glass and one pane of clear glass. Complete with the XLEdge™ spacer system, and two air champers filled with high density argon gas. AR90 is well suited for all Energy Star Climate Zones.
    Also available: AR902, featuring Interior Low-E.

  • KR90

     is a 7/8″ overall triple glazed insulated glass unit made up of two panes of Ultra U Plus glass and one pane of clear glass. Complete with the XLEdge™ spacer system, and two air champers filled with high density krypton gas. KR90 is well suited for all Energy Star Climate Zones, and is the only glass package to earn Energy Star’s 2016 Most Efficient rating.
    Also available: KR902, featuring Interior Low-E.

  • Noise Reduction Glass

    Restoration’s Noise Reduction Glass (NRG) option provides superior energy efficiency and noise reduction as well — at a fraction of the cost of traditional sound abatement options. NRG glass helps to minimize the infiltration of unwanted noises (such as barking dogs, loud neighbors, lawn mowers, and air and ground traffic) into your home.

  • Summit Tech Glass

    Summit Technology glass options are designed for homes in high altitude locations, providing a clear view with reliable energy efficiency. To achieve superior performance, traditional low-e options are combined with air filled cavities for insulation and an internal low-e coating. Learn more…
