The type of glass you choose is perhaps the most important decision you make when purchasing windows. After all, 80-90% of a window is its glass unit. Your choice of glass can dramatically affect and enhance the architectural appeal of the building. It also affects the building’s energy efficiency.
Insulated Glass Corner
Due to rising energy costs, single-pane windows are just about obsolete these days. Most windows are now built with double-pane, insulated glass.
Insulated glass is essentially a “sandwich” of two pieces of glass separated by a spacer bar and sealed on all four sides to create a dead airspace between the two panes. This technology was actually invented in 1935 by the Libbey-Owens-Ford Company (under the trade name Thermopane™). However, it has been significantly enhanced and improved over time.
Today, a typical window will have double-pane glass with an airspace between 1/2? and 1?. They may also contain a special low E coating or argon gas injected between the panes to increase their energy efficiency. Spacer bars have also been specially engineered to provide greater energy savings and longevity against seal failure. Energy efficiencies range from U=0.49 (twice as insulating as single-pane glass) to U=0.10 (over 10X better than single-pane).
NOTE: Many consumers are under the false assumption that more dead airspace means greater energy efficiency. However, studies have found that while airspaces less than 1/2? are too small to be effective, airspaces greater than 5/8? allow air currents to develop within the two panes. Such air movement aids in the transfer of heat between the panes, actually reducing efficiency.

It is easy to underestimate how sharp and hazardous broken glass is. A recently broken pane of window glass can have some edges that are razor sharp. Glass is generally heavier than many people assume and freeing large portions from a frame, particularly if it’s at an awkward angle, can actually be very dangerous. Let us take a look at the glass, board it up if you are in a rush and take care of the job with full clean up to make sure no small pieces are scattered.
