Window Glass Types

Modern-day windows are predominantly double pane and are either simple insulated glass units (IGUs) – double pane windows with air inside a hermetically sealed spacer – or more specialized IGUs called “gas fills” that are filled with krypton or argon gasses instead of air for additional insulation.

Both types of IGU are also known as thermopane glass. There are further variations: IGUs can be constructed of low-emissivity (Low-E) glass, glass coated with a heat-absorbing tint, or glass made with reflective or spectrally selective coatings.

Learn more about these popular types of window glass.

Most modern window glass, including IGUs, is either made of annealed glass or tempered glass. Tempered glass, also known as safety glass, is stronger than its annealed counterpart. When it breaks, it tends to break in smaller, duller pieces with more rounded edges than the large, sharp shards we associate with annealed glass windows.

Windows come in many styles, shapes and sizes, and at Glass Doctor, we love them all.
