A new standard
Mt.Hood Sunrooms introduces LE 3, the ultimate performance glass. It just might make all other Low-E glass obsolete. LE 3 delivers the ideal balance of solar control and high visibility, and it provides the highest levels of year-round comfort and energy savings, making it the perfect glass no matter where you live. The secret? An unprecedented triple layer of silver. This is beyond ordinary low-E glass; LE 3 sets the new standard.
Low-E times three makes the difference
LE 3 glass, now with three layers of year-round thermal protection, the benefits are exceptional. The result: a clear coating that blocks even more solar gain than ever before, reflects heat and lets the light stream in.
Energy savings all year long
The full-year benefits of LE 3 can be clearly seen. When the temperature soars in the summer, ordinary window glass just can’t beat the heat. Moreover, tinted glass spoils the view. LE 3 is formulated to reject solar heat while maintaining attractive visibility. Therefore, it keeps the heat out while letting light in. As a matter of fact, LE 3 glass is our ultimate in performance.
What’s more, LE 3 provides the ultimate in fading protection. It blocks 95% of the sun’s damaging ultraviolet rays – a leading cause of fading – so your furniture, carpets, curtains and wall coverings stay beautiful for years. During the cold weather, the insulating effect of your windows has a direct impact on how your rooms feel. The better insulated the glass; the warmer your room will feel. According the chart below, the insulating capability of LE 3 can’t be compared to any other glass product. This is a key factor in the construction of comfortable sunrooms. Additionally, the dramatic comfort improvement in sunrooms with warm glass surfaces means the humidity of the indoor air can be controlled and maintained properly. Proper humidity levels will improve comfort and promote a healthier living environment.

Available Frame Materials
All of the exterior and interior of a sunroom is extruded aluminum. Most of the aluminum extrusion is thermally broken to prevent the transfer of heat or cold into the room. The size and shape may vary as well as the glass selection and frame colors.

Modern sunrooms and conservatories are designed to be used throughout the four seasons of the year. Originally, most of the sunrooms were designed and built to be used mainly in mild weather to provide protection from rain and wind.
The materials used in construction of sunrooms and conservatories were originally just steel. Now with new technology, owners have several choices; wood, aluminum or vinyl—depending on desire and budget. Buyers can choose from the most expensive, exotic hardwoods to the least: aluminum and vinyl.
Most of the sunrooms and conservatories are designed with insulated, high performance glass in the roof and walls but many owners, especially in warmer climates, choose to build more a conventional roof with a tile or shingle overlay.
Wood interior lean-to sunrooms, conservatories, and patio rooms. In most cases, the wood interior sunrooms, conservatory or patio enclosures are slightly more expensive than aluminum. The customer may select several different wood types. Oak, Fir, Mahogany and Pine are the most popular, but owners choose from the endless list of existing woods.
Any sunroom, conservatory or patio enclosure should be designed and integrated as a part of the existing house and not just an add-on glass structure.
