Energy Efficient Skylights

 

Wasco Introduces

eMAX3

Wasco’s new eMAX3 is a new energy efficient glazing which meets the 2010 Energy Star program for all climate zones. The eMAX3 Triple Silver Coated Series is a high performance insulated glass with argon. This skylight is available in many standard sizes and will ship from stock within two days of receipt of order.

eMAX3, so named for its three layers of silver which limit solar heat gain and permit the maximum transmission of light, blocks 95% of ultraviolet rays and reduces window heat gain in the Wasco units by as much as 69% as compared to identical skylights constructed with two panes of clear glass.

eMAX3 is available in E-Class and Curb-Mount models.

 


30-30 Triple Glazed

Wasco 30-30 Triple Glazed Series

Wasco’s 30-30 Triple Glazed Series is a new energy efficient triple glazed skylight. When combined with other high performance design elements, Wasco’s 30-30 Triple Glazed skylights provide up to 55% greater insulating value than double-paned skylights with ordinary glass.

30-30 Triple Glazed is available in E-Class models.


 

Wasco Skylights with Lumira™ Aerogel – More than 2x the thermal value!

Wasco skylights with Lumira™ Aerogel  (formerly Nanogel® aerogel) are the highest performing daylighting product available on the market today. Adapting nano technology in Wasco skylights provides practical everyday solutions in fenestration products. Lumira™ aerogel is able to provide a tremendous thermal insulator that is also environmentally sound. Lumira™ aerogel works so well because of what it does on a nano-scale. Lumira™ aerogel permanently stops connective, conductive, thermal transfer without an appreciable drop in light transmission.

*Definitions:

High Performance eMAX3: An outer pane of tempered Low-E glass coated on the interior surface with three layers of silver and an inner pane of tempered glass. Argon gas fills the airspace. 

High Performance eMAX3 Laminated: An outer pane of tempered Low-E glass coated on the interior surface with three layers of silver and an inner pane of heat strengthened laminated glass. Argon gas fills the airspace.

Lumira™ Aerogel (formerly Nanogel® aerogel) is a trademark of Cabot Corporation. Sometimes called “frozen smoke”, aerogel is the lightest and best insulating solid in the world. Lumira aerogel, Cabot’s branded aerogel, is a hydrophobic aerogel produced as particles. Each particle consists largely of air, greater than 90 percent, contained in a structure with pore sizes less than the mean free path of air molecules, which severely inhibits heat transfer through the material. Cabot produces Lumira aerogel in a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility located near Frankfurt, Germany where it began commercial production in 2003.
