Insulated Glass Unit

Insulated glass units are 2 or more panes of glass made into one unit. It usually has an air space between the panes of the glass to provide a thermal separation. From the mmultiple options available, double paned and triple paned Insulated Glass Units are most common and safe choice for commercial places 

Why Use Insulated Glass Unit?

Insulated Glass Units are designed using any type of glass. They can also be made with specialty glass types. However to choose the correct one following things should be kept in mind

  • Sound transfer
  • Performance like Heat and cold transfer
  • Safety and security considerations
  • Privacy considerations
  • Base building aesthetic which is the final product.

All Insulated Glass Units have a spacer to create the needed air space.

IGU spacers differ in thickness, performance and cost and can be selected based on the overall performance you are striving to achieve in your commercial space. Contact the experts for more information.


Advantages and Disadvantages


Energy Efficiency

The airspace or insulating gas between the glass panes acts as a barrier, reducing heat transfer and improving thermal insulation. This helps maintain a more consistent indoor temperature, reducing reliance on heating and cooling systems and resulting in energy savings.

Enhanced Comfort

Insulated glass helps minimize heat loss during winter and heat gain during summer, creating a more comfortable indoor environment for employees and customers alike. It helps regulate temperature fluctuations and reduces drafts, providing a pleasant atmosphere year-round.

Noise Reduction

The insulating properties of double-glazed glass help reduce noise transmission from outside, creating a quieter workspace.

Condensation Control

Insulated glass helps prevent condensation from forming on the interior surface, reducing the potential for moisture-related issues such as mold and mildew.

UV Protection

Insulated glass can be manufactured with low-emissivity (low-E) coatings that block a significant amount of harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays. This protects the furnishing, artwork and merchandises from fading and damage.


Higher Initial Cost

Insulated glass tends to be more expensive than single-pane glass due to the additional materials and manufacturing processes involved.

Potential for Seal Failure

Over time, the seals between the glass panes in insulated glass units may deteriorate, leading to the penetration of moisture, fogging, or condensation between the layers.

Limited Repair Options

In the event of damage to an individual pane within an insulated glass unit, it is often not possible to repair or replace only that specific pane.

Increased Weight and Thickness

Insulated glass is typically heavier and thicker than single-pane glass due to the multiple layers and air or gas-filled spacer.

Acoustic Insulation Limitations

While insulated glass provides some level of sound insulation, it may not offer the same level of acoustic performance as specialized soundproofing glass solutions.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q1. How can you tell if glass is insulated?

You can tell if glass is insulated by looking for two or more panes of glass separated by a spacer and sealed around the edges.

Q2. How thick should insulated glass be?

The thickness of insulated glass can vary, but most units are made with glass that is 1/8 to 3/16 inch thick.

Q3. How effective are insulated windows?

Insulated windows can be very effective at improving energy efficiency and reducing heat transfer, which can lead to significant savings on heating and cooling costs.
