Insulating Glass including Thermal Insulation
The facades are mainly responsible for the energy balance of a building. The excellent thermal insulating effect of bonded double or triple glazed units with coated glass can save much of the energy otherwise consumed for heating or cooling.
The air or noble gas trapped between the bonded panes is a poor heat conductor and therefore forms a good insulating layer between the outdoor and indoor air. To seal the insulating glass units requires not only high quality products but also a uniformly high quality of workmanship.
