Insulated Glass Units
BENEFITS & COMPONENTS
Long gone are the days when our standard sealed unit was made with two pieces of 4mm clear float.
In modern construction there are a variety of challenges facing transparent wall partitions.
In today’s energy conscious world, and as a result of legislation changes, sealed units are now made with glass containing low emissivity coatings to meet the current regulations.
Historically the spacer bar was aluminum or galvanized steel, but the shift towards more energy efficient sealed units has seen an increase in Warm Edge spacer bars made of materials much more thermally efficient than metal.
Thanks to modern technology double glazing can prevent heat loss and also can protect against over-heating. Noise reduction, safety glass and UV protection are additional features that can be incorporated to enhance performance.
