Dynamic, highly insulating, triple-pane glazing
Energy efficiency is important to all of us and to the health of our planet. It’s especially important for people who live in colder climates and need to keep heat inside during cold weather.
For these or any clients who want added insulation and energy savings, SageGlass triple-pane glazing is the most energy-efficient building-glass solution available today.
SageGlass® achieves a U-factor as low as .14 Btu/hr·ft2·°F, equivalent to a more-than-50% reduction in energy consumption over clear, single-pane glazings and a 15% reduction compared to state-of-the-art static
Energy and emissions modeling
In a study by Paladino and Company, SageGlass triple-pane glazing achieved superior results over other glazing solutions, demonstrating lower electricity costs, lower HVAC requirements and a smaller carbon footprint. The sustainability and green building consulting firm compared glazings for both a northern climate (Minneapolis) and a mixed climate (Washington, DC) based on a typical US office building.

We offer our dynamic, triple-pane insulating glass units (IGUs) in many configurations for a wide variety of applications.
Optical data for monolithic SageGlass panes is available in the International Glazing Database supported by the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. This allows you to carry out whole glazing system performance calculations using the Window 5.2 modeling program. We can perform these calculations for your project on request.
Sizes and availability
SageGlass products are available in dimensions up to 40 inches by 60 inches (1016 mm x 1524 mm). Our new plant will manufacture glass in sizes up to 5 feet by 10 feet (1.5 m x 3 m).
We offer rectangles, squares, parallelograms, trapezoids and triangles. We are continuing to expand our product line, so contact us if you’d like to talk about a special shape.
It takes less electricity to operate 2,000 square feet (185.81 square meters) of SageGlass windows than it does to power a single 60-watt light bulb.
