Insulated Double Glazed Units

Insulated Double Glazed Units (known more commonly as double glazing) is a practice now commonly incorporated into windows and glazing as it’s an established and proven approach to improving thermal insulation performance.

As one of the most successful and cost effective solutions for dealing with Australia’s heating and cooling requirements, Metro Glass offers this premium product across all it’s services.

So what is an Insulated Double Glazed Unit (IGU)?

An IGU consists of two or more layers of glass separated bonded to an aluminium spacer bar and separated by a hermetically sealed air or argon filled space.

While heat travels easily through ordinary glass, the layered construction of an IGU creates a barrier that decreases air-to-air temperature transfer, while reducing direct and radiant temperature transfer from outside or inside the building.
