Strong, resilient, with perfect thermal and sound insulation properties, insulating glass has been used around the world in applications ranging from family homes to high-scale construction. Its unique design structure makes it ideal glazing material and a product with strong growth prospects. But what makes insulating glass the most preferred choice in so many applications? In this blog, we discuss the different types of insulating glass units and their special characteristics.
An insulating glass unit is a contemporary glass composed of multiple panes sealed together with air space in between, which gives the glass its insulating properties by separating the outside pane from the inside pane. Thanks to this unique arrangement, insulating glass is the most effective way to reduce air-to-air heat transfer through glazing.
