Insulating glass unit

Insulating glass units

Insulating glass is comprised of several pieces: multiple pieces of glass, materials that create and maintain space between the glass and any gas added to the space between the glass. All of these pieces are assembled into a single, sealed unit that holds the entire system together and prevents changes, especially to the air (or gas) between the glass. These complete units are called Insulating Glass Units, or IGUs.
