S-Series Thermal Testing Terms

1   Windows tested per NFRC 100. Data applies to double-paned insulating glass units using double-strength glass with an 11∕16" air space, except patio door with a ¾" air space.
2   Tested using GED’s Intercept® ultra low-conductance warm-edge spacer system.
Calculations provided by Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory Window 5.2® and Optics5
software based on a 15∕16" IG window unit and a 1" IG patio door unit.
3   Daylight Transmittance measures the performance of the glass only.
4   International Standards Organization Damage Weighted Transmission Rating (Tdw-ISO) calculations performed by Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory Windows 5.2® software and
is weighted using recommended International Commission on Illumination (CIE) standards.
5   Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) tested in accordance with NFRC 200. This value varies by style, glazing system, and grids.
6   Condensation Resistance is tested in accordance with NFRC 500.
