What is insulated glass?

Insulated glass, double pane, or IG units refer to a single unit of glass composed of two or more panes of glass sealed around the edges with an air space in between. Insulated glass minimizes heat and cold transfer, making it versatile and energy efficient.

Low Emissivity Glass

Low emissivity or low-e coatings for glass is also great for preventing heat or cold from escaping through your windows. Low-e coating will reflect the heat of the sun in summer months and retain it in colder weather, overall it considerably enhances the performance of windows. This glass is a perfect choice for homes or buildings with lots of windows or glass doors. This benefit is achieved through a thin coating applied during the manufacturing process. Low emissivity glass reduces the amount of infrared and ultraviolet light diffused without restricting visible light. So, if you are looking to reduce your heating or cooling bills, decrease your lighting costs, or preventing sun bleaching of your furniture or décor, consider this as an option for your next project.
