Insulated glass better known as I.G. Units or thermo panes consists of two or more panes of glass separated by a spacer and sealed primarily with a poly isobutylene, with secondary seals of polyurethane or silicone also available. Low-emission glass (Low-E) is a clear glass with a microscopically thin coating of metal oxide which helps make your insulated glass more efficient. This allows the sun’s heat and light to pass through the glass into the building. At the same time it blocks the heat from leaving the room, reducing heat loss considerably.
Impact Resistant Glass
Impact resistant glass is essentially glass that has been reinforced by glazing or a laminated material. This makes it less likely to shatter. Like bulletproof glass (which stays together when damaged because of wire mesh within the glass), impact resistant glass will break but stay attached to itself because of another material. However, there is more to its construction than simply the glass. Impact resistant windows are also required to have a particularly strong, reinforced frame. This glass application is designed for hurricane zones due to extra strength engineered into the glass to resist damage when exposed to hurricane force winds.
