IQ Radiant Glass™ windows displace the fossil fuel heating systems in a building. With 30 years of experience and over 1000 installed projects, IQ offers a unique experience to assist in the acceleration of the goal to NET ZERO BUILDINGS:

☀️ IQ Radiant Glass is a tempered piece of glass with an invisible metal coating

☀️ The resistive qualities of the coating creates radiant heat when a controlled electric current is applied to the conductive coating

☀️ The electric current in the resistive coating generates radiant energy which warms the glass until the glass radiates heat in the infrared range

☀️ Radiant heat does not directly heat the air

☀️ IQ Radiant Glass heats the objects and people in the room and has an efficiency at least 25% greater than forced hot air systems

☀️ The window system  eliminates the conventional heating system in its entirety

☀️ IQ Radiant Glass provides the missing link to NET ZERO BUILDINGS



PV Solar,  IQ Radiant Glass Window Systems & School Security - The Impact:

☀️ The window glass and high performance frames are robust on the IQ system and dramatically improve security

☀️ IQ uses laminated and heat strengthened glass as well as triple glazing, (4mm, 6mm and 8mm) - the glass configuration can be expanded for higher threat levels - (NOTE: Most factory window glass is shockingly 2.5mm thick)

☀️ The IQ monitoring system controls and analyzes each piece of glass on a 24/7 basis whether the window is opened or closed - any change in status, including breakage would immediately notify the authorities

☀️ High STC levels are standard

☀️ IQ Radiant Glass reduces condensation and mold and has other health benefits to children with asthma by eliminating  forced air heating  and replacing it with the thermal comfort of radiant
☀️ The impact of spreading germs, mold and bacteria is lessened 

☀️ The US Department of Energy, the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), and the Solar Foundation supports much more of this shift to solar in US schools

☀️ The report advises that if K-12 schools took interest in their potential for solar, they could contribute 5.4 gigawatts to the country’s solar capacity (that’s 5,400 megawatts)

☀️ This potential market of 72,000 schools could take advantage of a cost-effective investment and could be equal to or even over ⅓ of all the solar PV capacity now installed in the United States

☀️ Fulfilling that potential would result in a carbon emissions reduction equal to taking around one million passenger vehicles off the road

☀️ With 125,000 K-12 schools in the country, 3,727 of them already have solar systems installed

☀️ 3,000 of those were installed in the last six years in the United States 

☀️ Of the 125,000 schools in the country, between 40,000 and 72,000 can “go solar” cost-effectively
