What is the definition of an insulated unit?

"Insulated Unit" refers to the double pane glass found in most windows and glass doors. It consists of two panes of glass with a small space in between. A air-tight seal around the edge of the unit holds the two glass panels together and keeps moisture out of the middle space.

What are the glass options for an insulated unit?

Your window will be inspected and measured so that we can ascertain the proper glass thickness for your new insulated unit. There are limitless options pertaining to glass thickness, overall unit thickness, tint, Low - E, gas filled etc. Make sure to contact ABC GLASS AND MIRROR to ensure your glass is ordered correctly.

Increased thickness means increased strength, and there is a slight cost increase for thicker glass, so select the glass that fits your window, your family's needs, and your price range.

What are the energy-efficient possibilities for your new insulated unit?

In addition to renewing your window's appearance, your new insulated unit can also save you money when you choose one or both of our great energy-efficient features.

  • Argon – The space between the double panes is filled with argon gas and sealed. This gas increases the window's R-value, which means that it makes the window a better insulator.
  • LOW-E – The surface of the glass is covered with a low-emissivity coating, a treatment that reduces the amount of energy lost through the window.
Is tempered glass available for an insulted unit?

For some applications, an insulated unit made of tempered glass is best. The location of some windows and glass doors puts them at a higher risk of being broken by impact or collision. Reduce the risk of injury or damage from sharp pieces of broken glass by choosing a safer option. Tempered glass has four to five times the strength of annealed glass. If it is broken, tempered glass will shatter into small chunks, without the razor-sharp edges of typical glass shards. This is much less hazardous and easier to clean up, too.
