Glass solution from Argo Glass & Windows

When you choose us, you’re choosing superior quality and IG technology that stands relevant and competitive for decades.

ENERGY-SAVING: Our Low-E IGUs have the capability of stocking the energy making them efficient and ideally suited for the North American climate.
SAFETY AND SECURITY: We offer highly resistant glass that will defend your home in case of heavy rain, storms or even hurricanes.
SOUNDPROOF: Custom build IGUs that will reduce outside noises from traffic, airplanes or construction.
UV PROTECTION: Glass solutions that impede up to 99.9% of UV rays for your protection and comfort.
PRIVACY: For rooms that require more privacy we offer a wide range of patterned glass, acid-etched, obscure and more.

Our company can offer an extensive selection of glass solutions of the highest quality and a vast choice of thicknesses, tints and coatings in order to create the IGUs that will perfectly suit your home or business.  

  • Clear glass is available in a wide range of thicknesses. It is most commonly used in spaces where it is not needed additional UV blocking or protection.
  • Tempered glass, also known as “safety glass” is required on all patio doors and other spaces where extra security is needed. Tempered glass, if broken, will shatter in a way that reduces the risk of serious injury. Our tempered glass meets rigorous industry safety codes, like ANSI Z-97.1-2009 and CPSC 16CFR 1201 categories I and II.
  • Laminated glass can offer your home an extra level of security and calmness. Laminated glass is used especially in areas close to airports, industry or anywhere where uncomfortable noise exists. In comparison to tempered glass, laminated glass does not only offer a strong sound proof barrier, but also more security. If broken, laminated glass will not fall off, due to the vinyl interlayer, that will remain in the frame and keep the glass fragments welded.
  • Patterned glass, available in three different textures can add style and refinement to the windows where privacy is needed.
  • LoE glass has the aim to add energy efficiency and comfort to your home, all year round, regardless of the climate you are located in. The LoE IGUs can be coupled with tempered, laminated and/or patterned glass for added safety, soundproofing or UV protection.

For areas with a lot of sun exposure, there are options like LoE 366 or LoE 340 which have a high level of UV control and non glare effect.

Different LoE options may be coupled between them or with tempered or laminated glass in order to meet your needs and wishes.

Lowest failure rate in IGU market

Assembled of high quality components:

  1. Warm-edge stainless steel spacer – improving resistance to condensation and less stress on seal. Improved (Bent) Corners.
  2. Primary and Secondary seal -  keeps moisture out and argon inside, provides long-term adhesion. Dual Seal: PIB/Silicone.
  3. Desiccants – absorbs moisture to minimize temperature-related pressure changes.

There are six types of sealants in the glass industry: polyisobutylene (PIB), polysulfide (PS), polyurethane (PU), hot melt butyl (HMB), silicone and reactive hot melt (DSE) and each of them has its pros and cons.

While PIB offers best in class MVTR and gas retention, it lacks structural strength and solvent resistance. A silicone sealant, on the other hand, provides excellent UV stability, temperature resistance, structural strength and solvent resistance, but performs poorly in MVTR and gas retention.

The IGU units offered by our company are sealed with a combination of the PIB and silicone materials. This technology incorporates the advantages of both types of sealants, providing extra performance and high durability of the IGU in all climates and conditions.

Are you planning to replace the IGUs in your house because the old ones have lost their seals or because you want to save your budget for heating and cooling or maybe just because you want to refresh the look of your home? Any reason you would have, for the highest performance alongside with a beautiful appearance and long lifespan, ARGO GLASS & WINDOWS will deliver and install for you the glass that will suit best your needs, preferences and budget.
