Old Town Glass is a leading supplier and installer of insulated glass units. Insulated glass is also known as thermal pane glass and double pane glass.

Choosing the proper insulated glass in a window, sometimes can be more complicated than picking the window frame to use.
Insulated glass can be installed in a variety of window types, from:
- Old or new site built wood window frames

The following terminology applies to insulated glass and is used to describe its properties:
