Thermal performance is an essential aspect of green building and obtaining LEED certification. TGP offers insulated glass units with low-e coatings for increased thermal performance as a part of the FireLite® and Pilkington Pyrostop® product lines. These coatings achieve the Department of Energy definitions for spectrally selective glazing (ratio of light transmission to SHGC). TGP also offers thermally enhanced fire-rated steel frames to help reduce heat flow and improve thermal performance.
