IGU
IGU
Insulated Glass Unit (IGU) is a structure consisting of two or three glass panes spaced apart with a spacer bar and hermetically sealed, and forming one or two insulated chambers filled with inert gas or dried air.
Modern Glass produces IGUs under the MG Units brand.
   

Modern Glass IGU assembly technology and high-quality parts:
aluminum or composite spacer bar, butyl sealant and molecular sieve with mesh aperture of 3 angstroms or less ensure a life cycle of at least 20 years for IGUs.

Modern Glass IGUs are produced with argon filling. Having a lower heat capacity and heat conductivity than air, argon reduces convection movements inside the IGU, so the window becomes warmer, with no condensate or ice formed in the lower edge area of the IGU. Argon is 100% safe, non-flammable and non-toxic. Modern Glass can both fill IGUs up in an argon environment and run IGU argon content tests using a GasGlass device without harming the product’s air tightness.

General construction IGUs are those with transparent glasses that had no additional heat treatment. Popular for glazing windows and balconies in residential buildings due to their advantages over single-pane glazing
