Replacement Window
Window properly installed, on time, with quality workmanship
Replacement Window Screen
Screen used in Go-Glass quality installation
Reflective Glass
This is an ordinary float glass with a metallic coating to reduce solar heat. This produces a mirror effect.
Relative Heat Gain (RHG)
The amount of heat gain through a glass product taking into consideration the effects of solar heat gain (shading coefficient) and conductive heat gain (U-value). The value is expressed in Btu/hr/ft2 W/m2). RHG = (14° F x Summer U-value) + (Shading Coefficient x 200 BTUs). The lower the RHG, the greater the glass restricts heat gain.
Rolled Glass
Also called Patterned and Figured glass. Flat glass manufactured by forming a ribbon of glass with a pair of machined or engraved forming rolls. The rolls impress their surface pattern into the glass surfaces.
