March 24, 2010 – Radiant Glass Industries (RGI) and sister company Busick Insulated Glass have collaborated to develop a product that is not only energy efficient, but energy generating. Using Power*e Glass designed and developed by RGI, Busick manufactures insulating glass (IG) units that use safe, low voltage DC power to warm the inside of the glass pane – creating a system that is nearly 100 percent efficient.

According to Mike Tibbitts, Busick’s general manager, all Power*e windows are built with Edgetech’s Super Spacer to ensure the long-term durability of these unique IG units.

“At the core, Power*e IG units are proven, energy-efficient window systems that meet and exceed industry standards,” Tibbitts said. “And because the investment in radiant-heated glass is higher, long-term durability is extremely important to help protect our customers’ investments. That is one of the reasons why we use only Super Spacer in Power*e units. It is a proven performer, both in terms of energy efficiency and durability.”

According to third-party testing, Power*e Glass uses up to 40 percent less power than conventional heating systems and is practically 100 percent efficient because of its combined insulating value and radiant-heating capabilities.

“Power*e adds to the overall warmth and comfort of a space,” Tibbitts said. “By touching the glass pane, you can feel the warmth of the thermal barrier created by Power*e; however, the electric current flows safely and invisibly.”

RGI works with developers, architects, engineers, contractors, glazing companies and other specialists to produce and install Power*e products suited for each application.
