The Best of Oberon - Our Resident Technical Expert

Soft Hard Coat - Lowe E
LoE-366 simply means 3 layers of silver and 66% light transmittance. LoE-272 means 2 layers of silver and 72% VT. LoE-178 means one layer of silver and 78% transmittance. It would take a heck of a lot less memory cells if the other folks would come up with a similar system!
Marvin - Infinity Windows
Rating 4
"Although these were the highest priced windows we looked at, we thought they were by far the best value." - Jack, WI

"I replaced my windows to have a tight sealing window and I still get frost in the winter time. Air comes through the sash and frame...not what you would expect from a $1300 window!"-Mark, MN
