Insulated Glass (Includes Best Low-E and Ultra-U+Plus Glass)

The Best Low-E Glass Available

Durante Home Exteriors’ soft-coat Low-E not only out-performs hard-coat Low-E glass, but most soft-coat Low-E glass as well. It has set an industry standard for being the clearest Low-E glass on the market today. All this while reducing UV light which fades fine fabrics, draperies, and fine art.

All windows ordered with our soft-coat Low-E are filled with Argon gas as standard. Argon is a very heavy and dense gas, which acts like an amplifier to boost the performance of our soft-coat Low-E glass by 20%. Normal air between the panes of glass tends to circulate from hot to cold by rapid movement. The density of Argon gas moves much slower, thereby reducing the heat of summer or cold of winter transferring over to the inside pane of the glass.


Our Exclusive Ultra-U+Plus Glass: “Saving Energy Costs and Adding More Comfort to Your Home”

If you’re looking for the best value — the insulating glass package with the quickest return on your investment — you’ll like our very own Ultra-U+Plus Glass. We’ve taken the power of Low-E technology and nearly doubled it by using 8 layers of coatings paired with argon gas. Ultra-U+Plus Glass insulates better than hard and soft-coat Low-E glass, double-layered, or even triple-paned products.

By reflecting the heat your furnace produces during the winter back into your home, allowing you to save money on heating costs; and in the summer, the sun’s rays are reflected back to the outside so your house remains cooler. That’s why we call it our “2-way heat reflector” — you’re saving money all year! It won’t take long for your windows to pay for themselves when you choose Ultra-U+Plus Glass.


UltraPlus 12 Insulated Glass: Our Twelve Layers Make the Difference

Sunrise Windows from Durante introduces our exclusive UltraPlus 12™ Glass System that will save you more money and achieve higher performance levels than other types of Low-E Glass windows on the market today. UltraPlus 12™ reflects the heat from your furnace back into your home in the wintertime, blocks out the heat from the sun in the summertime, and filters out damaging Ultraviolet Rays that cause fading of furniture, carpet and
wall coverings.

The secret? Our exclusive 12 layer coating structure makes the difference. Competitive window brands utilize either single layer or double layer Low-E coating structures, but Sunrise Windows by Durante’s UltraPlus 12™ High Performance Glass System incorporates twelve layers of heat reflective metallic shields sputtered into the window glass. These extra energy savings layers are what combine to make to make UltraPlus 12™ the product that will keep your home warmer in the wintertime and cooler in the summertime.
