Refers to two or more layers of glass bonded together using heat and pressure with layers of transparent plastic in between. Offers ultraviolet-ray blockage.
Thin narrow strips of wood used in lattices or nailed to two-by-fours or rafters as a foundation for plaster or tiles.
Stands for light emitting diode. Unlike traditional bulbs which conduct electricity through heated filaments these tiny bulbs do not heat up and are therefore safe abd extreneky durable. LEDs can run on solar power batteries or a low-voltage power source.
Loops of yarn at a uniform height. Includes low-level loop a dense durable construction that won't show footprints (tracking); and delicate-looking needlepoint made on a jacquard loom.
A loop and cut-pile combination; both loops and sheared yarn are at a uniform height.
These lights use 120 volts powered directly by the live current from from your house. The cable must be ordered from and installed by a professional with the cable buried 4' underground. Due to electricity costs these lights are more expensive.
"These lights run off a power cable from yoour home buried 12 underground. The household power supply is converted from 120 to 12 volts by a transformer (sold separately). Low-voltage lights are safer and more economical than line-voltage lights."""
Low-emissivity window coatings are thin invisible layers deposited on a window surface to reflect radiant heat and lower total heat flow through the window.
Also known as Low-E glass. It is coated with a thin transparent layer of silver. It allows light in but reflects infrared and UV rays to the outside decreasing cooling costs and reducing fading of furnishings. In winter Low-E glass reduces heating costs by deflecting interior heat back into the room.
