Insulating Glazing

Insulate from temperature extremes. Enhance thermal efficiency with less argon for eco-friendly design options.

Protection from temperature extremes.

Home > Applications > Insulating Glazing


Insulating glass is used as a multi-functional construction element in building curtainwalls of every kind. While their primary purpose is to prevent heat transfer, insulating glass units (also known as double-glazed units) must also meet stringent requirements for sound insulation, UV protection, and security.
