  The new Low-E4™ glass reduces water spots up to 99%* and minimizes dirt build-up on the window when activated by sunlight. Andersen Low-E4™ glass saves time and money. It dries faster with fewer water spots and energy-efficient Low-E4™ glass also adds the thermal protection of Low-E glass to a home**.  
  High-Performance™ Low-E4™ glass reduces sound penetration and protects your interior from damaging UV rays. During shipping and finishing, a removable film protects Low-E4™ glass from dirt or mortar. Like all Andersen windows and doors, Low-E4™ glass comes with a 20-year limited warranty.

** A study of identical homes comparing Low-E to ordinary dual-pane glass showed 25% in savings on cooling bills. 10% on heating bills. Savings may vary geographically.

UV Protection

Andersen Advantage

Ordinary dual-pane glass lets 62% of UV light pass through. Our High-Performance™ Low-E glass cuts that down to 17% with virtually no effect on the clarity and color of the light.

With Low-E glass, if your thermostat is set at 70°, the temperature of the innermost glass pane won't drop below 57° even if it's 0° outside. In warm climates, Low-E glass works just as hard to keep your home cool. For extreme climates, we also offer High-Performance Sun™ glass for maximum UV protection and temperature control.

Ten Tips for Good Installation

  1. Read and follow the installation instructions.
  2. Install your Andersen products only in the vertical position.
  3. Check the rough opening to make sure it is sized properly and is square and level.
  4. Apply proper flashing under and around window and door openings.
  5. Double-check the alignment of the window before finally anchoring it in the wall, and properly secure using appropriate fasteners.
  6. Insulate the interior cavity between the window frame and the rough opening. Do not overpack.
  7. Stain and/or seal all unfinished wood surfaces promptly to minimize moisture absorption.
  8. Keep paint off the weatherstrip and the interior hardware finish.
  9. Protect the window during construction and plastering.
  10. Ensure proper installation and operation of the window before applying the interior trim.

Proper measurement and installation of Andersen products is the sole responsibility of the architect, building owner, contractor and/or consumer.construction creations
