Insulating Glass

Insulating glass units are designed to offer improved thermal performance by reducing heat gain or heat loss through the glass. Based on the various glass types specified, the insulating glass can meet multiple building code requirements and design aesthetics. GGI makes specifying high-performing glass easier because of the broad range of specialty glass types produced and stocked, combined with state-of-the-art technology used to fabricate multi-functional insulating glass units for commercial building applications.

HOW INSULATING GLASS UNITS ARE MADE

Insulating glass units are made utilizing two or more lites of glass that may be separated using a spacer material around the perimeter. The glass and spacer materials are enclosed using a hermetically sealed air space. The spacer contains a desiccant material that functions to keep the cavity (airspace) of the insulating glass unit free of visible moisture.

Varying glass types, thicknesses and configurations may be used to meet the design requirements for bird friendly glazing, daylighting, energy-efficiency, impact resistance, outdoor views, and sound control while also achieving a unique aesthetic.

GGI insulating glass units follow the performance requirements and testing procedures as defined in the ASTM International documents:

  • E 2188 Standard Test Method for Insulating Glass Unit Performance
  • E 2189 Standard Test Method for Testing Resistance to Fogging in Insulating Glass Units
  • E 2190 Standard Specification for Insulating Glass Unit Performance and Evaluation
