There are many advantages to using our super thin, light VIG glass with a life expectancy of over 25 years including noise reduction, excellent UV filtering, fully tempered and extremely high thermal insulation performance.
Older homes with single glaze windows cannot have insulated multipane units because they are too thick unless sashes, beads and potentially panels are replaced. Retro fitting with FMI’s VIG perfectly addresses this problem because it is super thin, fitting into existing single-glazed windows and doors.
Adding a VIG to one skin of an insulated glass unit super charges it as far as thermal and acoustic properties are concerned. This is an effective way of gaining increased thermal performance for either replacement windows and doors or windows and doors for a new home.
