Originally created for extreme climates, insulated glass units are now widely used in all locations.
Insulated glass units are constructed with two or more panels of glass separated by a desiccant filled aluminum spacer that is hermetically sealed with either polypeptide or silicone. The purpose of the desiccant is to absorb any moisture that may form within the unit. Dry air usually occupies the empty space between the panels. Inert gases such as argon are sometimes added to enhance the insulation of the unit. Different combinations of glass types and colors are used to construct insulated glass units with unique aesthetic and performance properties.
Benefits of insulated glass units include the following:
- Warmer interiors in winter.
- Cooler interiors in the summer.
- Reduced noise level.
- Reduced energy usage (heating and cooling).
The fully automated Lisec insulating glass system at Ittihad is equipped with an automatic washing machine; spacer bender, robotic sealing machine, and a double sealing head system.

This product is created by embedding a venetian blind in between the panels of glass in an insulated glass unit before it is permanently sealed. Once sealed in this totally dust free environment, the blinds require no cleaning, always appear new and are protected from damage unlike external blind systems. Operation of the blind can be either by a simple draw cord, a magnetic draw down device, twist knob or remote controlled motorized mechanism.
For the designer, insulated glass blinds offer a creative and practical solution adding elegance and style and providing an effective control of light, heat, and privacy. Insulated glass blinds will also improve the acoustics of most interior spaces by providing an effective barrier to sound penetration.
This product is the perfect application for hospitals, medical centers, government buildings and schools.
