What Are Energy Efficient Windows?

Energy-efficient windows offer different levels of UV protection, insulation, and heat blocking. This type of energy efficiency can be achieved in a few different ways. 

One of the easiest ways to increase the energy efficiency of your windows is to replace single-pane windows with double- or triple-pane windows. Or, you can add a pane of glass on top of the existing windows. 

The extra glass and the pocket of air trapped between them drastically reduces solar heat gain (the heat caused by sun shining through the windows) and improves insulation to keep cool and warm air produced by your HVAC system from escaping.

Other types of energy-efficient windows have special Low-E or low-emissivity, and UV blocking coatings. These coatings are invisible metallic layers added to the surface of an energy-efficient window (or glass door).

The special coatings only allow short-wave solar energy through and reflect long-wave infrared energy back outwards. This greatly improves the solar blocking performance of the windows.

UV coatings for windows block out the sun’s harmful UV rays that can cause skin damage or make furnishings fade over time. They can also reduce the sun’s glare, making it easier to do work on computers or perform other activities inside.

Benefits of Energy Efficient Windows

The improved performance of energy-efficient windows means that you can maintain comfortable indoor temperatures year-round. This ensures ideal working conditions inside office buildings, government facilities, and other commercial properties.

An even bigger benefit of energy-efficient windows is that they can save you an incredible amount on your monthly utility bills. 

Since they prevent warm or cool air from escaping and block out heat from the sun, you don’t need to rely on air conditioning and heating systems so much. 

For large commercial buildings, this can translate to hundreds of thousands of dollars in savings over the first few years after installation.

Riot Glass® High Efficiency Windows

Like energy-efficient windows with heat blocking and UV coatings, Riot Glass® protects your property from excess heat. Riot Glass® glazing shields go on top of your existing glass, so you’re essentially adding a pane of glass to make your windows more energy efficient.

Riot Glass® has many of the same benefits as energy-efficient window glass, but with an extremely high level of impact resistance. Not only will it improve the insulation of your glass doors and windows, but it will protect against inclement weather, forced entry, and more. 

Retrofit Protection for Energy Efficient Windows & Doors

Replacing all your glass doors and windows with energy-efficient windows and doors can be prohibitively expensive, not to mention time-consuming and inconvenient for you, your employees, and other building occupants.

With Riot Glass®, you don’t have to worry about any of these concerns. Riot Glass® is designed to be retrofitted into or onto almost any existing door or window framing system. 

There’s almost never any need to replace the existing framing and glass unless the framing is very old and deteriorated.

This makes Riot Glass® a much more affordable and convenient option when you’re looking for a way to improve the performance of your existing glass doors and windows.

Once Riot Glass® is installed over the existing glass, you’ll notice how much more comfortable indoor temperatures are and how much less you're using your HVAC system to heat and cool your property.

Why Else Should You Choose Riot Glass®?

Riot Glass® is a complete solution for improving the performance of your property’s door and window glass. Not only does it boost the energy efficiency of glass doors and windows, but it protects them from all types of breakage.

We offer a full range of security glazing shields, from containment grade (non-ballistic) to ballistic grade (bullet-resistant). 

Depending on your other performance goals, you can protect your property against forced entry, burglary, smash-and-grab theft, vandalism, rioting, looting, active shooters, hurricanes, windstorms, bomb blasts, and more.

Riot Glass® is extremely effective at dispersing the force of impacts, keeping the glass behind it intact, and ensuring that bad guys or the elements stay on the other side.

Our clients include high-end retail stores, government buildings, schools, hospitals, correctional facilities, religious centers, luxury homes, offices, and other commercial properties.

Every Riot Glass® retrofit solution is custom made to fit your property’s windows and doors perfectly. The high-efficiency window glazing looks and feels like normal window glass, so you won’t even notice it’s there. 

More importantly, it won’t significantly alter the outward appearance of your property or hurt its curb appeal. Riot Glass® is just as transparent as your existing glass, so it doesn’t block out natural light, inhibit views, or make window shopping difficult.

Riot Glass® can also come with an abrasion-resistant and chemical-resistant coating to protect your windows from marring and vandalism.

REGULAR GLASS SAYS
“PLEASE DON’T COME IN”

Riot Glass® is heavily fortified glass that is becoming the new standard in glazing protection.
Building occupants need time to react, call 911, run away, or barricade in a safer place.
You are buying time, and time buys options.

  • We had several windows broken and our store looted during a protest in downtown Los Angeles. Riot Glass provided a solution to prevent this from happening again. We still have a very open, inviting look to our store so we are happy about that.

    At first, we were skeptical whether something clear would provide enough protection under the extreme conditions we experienced, but after witnessing the demonstration of the product we were convinced. Unbelievably strong!

Frequently Asked questions

What sizes are available?
Riot Glass® (RG) and ArmorPlast® (AP) are available in maximum sizes 72″ x 120″. If window openings exceed that size, we simply reconfigure the mullions using our AP Series support mullions specifically designed to accommodate our AP and RG Framing. RG Security Laminates (our exclusive line of security window film) is available in 72″ maximum widths at any length. 
Will it look like my existing glass?
Riot Glass®, ArmorPlast®, and RG Security Laminates all look like regular glass. Depending on the thickness, visual acuity can be slightly affected, but overall you won’t see a distinguishable difference. Yellowing is not a concern and is covered by the warranty. For added safety, all three products allow police and patrol services to see inside your property. Privacy tints are available as an option in most Riot Glass® products.
How do I clean and care for security glass?
Traditional cleaning methods work on all types of Riot Glass® security glass and laminates. All of our security glass products have a protective outer layer to avoid scratching and marring. The process is similar to caring for a new car. You put it through all kinds of paces every day, but you do so with care and attention to detail. Treat security glass the way you would the finish on a fine automobile and you’ll enjoy years of trouble-free service. Always follow the cleaning instructions that come with your Riot Glass® purchases for optimal product longevity.
What is the warranty on the glass and framing?
Warranties vary by product and can also change depending on whether the application is commercial or residential. In some cases, our products carry a limited lifetime warranty, while others are protected for up to 15 years. Your security specialist will provide details on both warranty coverage and life expectancy for your specific product needs.
How do I know it will work?
All of our products have been thoroughly tested in highly accredited laboratory settings and, more importantly, in real-world situations. While there are no ironclad guarantees, every retail store, commercial building, school, and home needs some level of security glass protection. Security glazing products are designed to delay and deter, and in many cases are the determining factor between life and death.
What happens during a site inspection?
Our security specialists will do a complete threat assessment, discuss your goals, and provide a detailed, easy-to-read proposal. We will also measure your windows and frames, then evaluate the overall condition and retrofit adaptability to determine the best solution for your property.
Do I need to remove signage and graphics?
It depends on which product you select and where the graphics are displayed. During the site inspection, our expert security consultant will advise whether graphics must be removed and replaced or stay intact.
What is UL 752? What’s the difference between ballistic and non-ballistic ratings?
Underwriters Laboratories™ offers multiple ballistic rating levels. Designed to measure bullet resistance, ballistic ratings factor in the grain (weight), caliber, and velocity of the ammunition. Non-ballistic (containment grade) products allow bullet penetration, but won’t break down or appreciably diminish in strength. In other words, the bullets leave holes, but the panels remain intact, keeping intruders out of the building.
