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.

Glass products are undoubtedly the perfect choice for interior solutions in both commercial and residential settings. Read below. as we shed some light on the numerous benefits that come with incorporating glass products into your interior design.
Delving into the world of interior design, we often encounter the transformative power of glass elements. These glass innovations breathe life into both residential and commercial spaces. Let's explore some captivating examples of how glass is reshaping interiors
Glass entrance systems refer to the use of glass as a material for creating entrance systems in buildings, such as doors, windows, and storefronts. Glass entrance systems are popular in modern architectural designs and can provide numerous benefits, including:
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.
Insulating glass walls are frequently used in commercial building applications. They can provide energy savings, protection against condensation and mold, and even sound attenuation. Hartung Glass Industries has multiple world-class commercial insulating glass facilities across the US and Canada. Each Hartung facility has earned IGCC certification, a standard that verifies that our units are guaranteed to come with lasting durability and a high level of quality.
