High-Efficiency Insulated Glass Units

Insulated glass units consist of two or more panes of glass that are divided by a spacer bar. This creates an air space in between them, and then the edges are sealed using two insulating seals. This glass fabrication technique helps to minimize the transfer of hot or cold air, making it an energy-efficient option for homes and businesses. Northwestern Glass Fab has the capabilities to create insulated glass units in various sizes, shapes, and thicknesses.

Our high-quality units carry a ten-year warranty for seal failure and we meet the strict requirements of the Insulating Glass Certification Council (IGCC). Your choices are limitless with Northwestern Glass Fab.


Fire Rated Products

  1. | Filmed Fire Rated Glass
    We stock KERALITE -F- a glass-ceramic fire and impact safety-rated product. It can be used in fire rated doors, windows, transom and borrowed lite assemblies. A clear 3M Scotchshield Ultra Film is applied to give it a CPSC CAT II High Impact Safety Rating. We cut and label this product in-house to meet your exact specifications.
  2. | Laminated Fire Rated Glass
    We stock KERALITE -L - also a glass-ceramic fire and impact safety-rated material except that it is laminated together with a PVB interlayer instead of using an applied safety film. A great choice for schools, universities or any heavily used public space as it is the most durable type of fire rated glass. KERALITE - L meets the CPSC CAT II High Impact Safety Rating. We cut and label this product in-house to meet your exact specifications.

Glass Railing

Give your business or home an elegant, modern look with a completely customized glass railing system. Our fabrication experts can bring your design idea to life.

We offer both laminated and tempered glass for railing systems. Laminated and tempered glass add to the safety and durability of railing systems and are required to meet the strict safety considerations for railings. Most glass railing systems will see high amounts of use in their lifetimes and require quality products to ensure they last and provide the peace of mind and strength required.
