Here at Bent Glass Design, we love to create unique, eye-catching designs for our clients that make architectural projects come to life. But adding custom bent glass to your building doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice function for form. We work with a variety of different types of glass that can satisfy the practical needs of our clients as well.
One such type of glass is bent insulating glass.
With the days getting colder and winter on its way, we figured this was the perfect time to discuss this great glass option.
Bent insulating glass is fabricated using two panes of glass separated by a sealed air space in between. The narrow sealed gap between the two panes of glass insulates by acting as a barrier between indoor and outdoor temperatures. This airtight barrier can not only keep a building warm during the winter, but also cool during the summer. The bent insulated glass keeps the indoor temperature consistent, so that it’s not subject to constant fluctuations as the temperature outside changes.
In addition to making buildings more comfortable, bent insulated glass can help to keep your energy bills low. For buildings with large glass exterior facades, insulated glass is a practical necessity. Over a period of a few years, insulated glass can save you thousands of dollars on your energy bills.
