Optimal comfort in the look you want
Modern glass provides more than just a nice view – it also comprises the right makeup to keep your home comfortable, protect your rugs and furniture from sunlight, and lower energy bills. That is certainly the case with insulated glass, which utilizes the latest technology to ensure the most energy efficient maintenance of temperature and light within your home.
When multiple glass panes or “lites” are assembled into units, they are commonly referred to as insulated glass or insulating glass units (IGUs). These units use the thermal and acoustic insulating properties of a gas (or vacuum) contained in the space formed by the unit. Most IGUs are double glazed, but IGUs with three sheets or more, i.e. “triple glazing,” are becoming more common due to higher energy costs. Insulated glazing may be framed in a sash, frame or in a curtain wall, providing good insulation without sacrificing transparency.
At Drexler, we calculate the optimal unit thickness for your application and help determine whether additional coatings, such as a Low-E surface, should be used. Low-emissivity (Low-E) glass has a thin coating, often of metal, on the glass within its airspace that reflects thermal radiation or inhibits its emission reducing heat transfer through the glass.
And, while it is all very scientific sounding, that does not mean you are stuck for options. In fact, we offer insulated glass in a variety of tints and colors that also improve performance, depending on your requirements. We use only the most durable Dual Seal technology to insulate our units, providing the longest warranty period in the glass industry – Ten Years.
