it might be low e squared. it should be tempered glass since its a door so you dont even need to worry about it.

You can practically put any film on lowE2 annealed ot tempered. The glass performance is that good.

That sounds like Anderson's high end windows. Very expensive, and give a great heat rejection as well as a great heat retention in the winter months.

Test it with a BTU meter.

Last Andersons I ran into had no need for film.

Lady had the home for 3 years, no heat gain that I could measure, and no fade damage to her hard wood floors. AAnd we have sun year round.

:dunno are you kidding me :lol

here ya go worx, andersen glazing options right from the web site we tint em all the time with no problems actually I would rather tint andesens vs. pella

Options are items that must be specified to complete an order, or are typically specified with the unit order.

Specify High-Performance? or High-Performance Sun Low-E glazings, or choose from a wide range of options including High-Performance? tempered insulating glass. For a complete list of

glazing options and their availability, contact your Andersen? supplier.

Andersen? High-Performance? Low-E glass is 35% more efficient than ordinary double-pane glass in the heating months, and 41% more efficient in the cooling months.

Glazing Options

High-Performance? insulating glazing for improved energy efficiency. Application: for the complete range of climatic conditions.

High-Performance Sun? insulating glazing for improved energy efficiency. Soft Gray tint. Application: for maximum solar control requirements.

And here is a link to andersens center of glass performance specs :dunno

Simply put Anderson windows that say High performance on them is a regular low e window. Also the anderson's that say high performance low e are the same as the other just regular low e glass. depends on the plant that is marking the glass. The HP sun line is a tinted line of glass. And as far as anderson having low e2 they arent producing it yet. This information is straight from an anderson rep that I talked to in March this year. The longer I talked to this rep the more I realized I knew more about his glass than he. But this is the bs he told me. So take it for what it is worth :spit

I would say 60% of the glass I film is anderson HP line of windows.

Okay,

So how do you guys sell film to the clients who have these Anderson High Performance Low E Tinted windows.

The Anderson windows I see in the field with the labeling I just mentioned are already dark.

And, there is very little heat penetrating through.

I also know that these windows are expensive, so suggesting a spectrally selective film would obviously take anyone's budget over the top.

So, what do you guys reccomend for this application?, And why?
