Sometimes you have to look back to go forwards.
And when we were designing the HR40 Window, that’s exactly what we did.
As a company, our aim was to create the most energy efficient window we possibly could. We didn’t have to look far – we already had an excellent meter for success: The Empire State Building.
In 2010 the Empire State Building underwent a complete glass overhaul, a cooperative venture between Serious Glass and Johnson Controls Inc. The new windows that would be replacing the old double-pane Argon-insulated windows would boost the efficiency rating of the Empire State Building’s glass from R2 to R5-R8, a truly astronomical spike.
