Insulated glass units (IGUs) have transformed the realm of construction and architecture, bringing about a revolution in design possibilities. These cutting-edge glass panels are composed of two or more layers of glass, with an air or gas-filled space in between, forming a thermal barrier that offers a multitude of advantages. Whether you're envisioning a residential haven, a commercial masterpiece, or even revamping an existing structure, IGUs have the potential to completely transform the game. In this blog post, we will delve into the top three applications for insulated glass units and explore why they are an indispensable addition to contemporary construction.

Insulating glass units (IGU) used in commercial building applications are generally composed of two or more lites of glass held apart by a spacer material and hermetically sealed around the unit perimeter using a polyisobutylene (PIB) primary seal and a silicone secondary seal. This unit construction is capable of withstanding or absorbing stresses originating from pressure or thermal expansion and provides a stable barrier that works to prevent moisture/condensation from infiltrating the unit and the escape of any specialty gas fill from the unit.
