Types of Glass

This is a short introduction about the different types of glass we offer: Laminated Glass – The Sandwich™, Laminated Insulating Glass, Diamond Glass, Thin Triple, Noise Reducing Glass, and Intruder Deterrent Glass.

Laminated Glass Alpha
Laminated Glass - The Sandwich™

Laminated glass is composed of two pieces of glass bonded together with a strong clear interlayer. Once sealed, the glass “sandwich” behaves as a single unit and is transparent like ordinary glass. Exceptionally strong, laminated glass is ideal for homes that regularly experience severe weather and the risk of impact during storms.

Laminated Insulating Glass
Laminated Insulating Glass

Laminated insulating glass is composed of three panes of glass: two panes of glass bonded together with a strong, clear interlayer for impact resistance; and one pane for added insulation.

Diamond Insulated Glass Alpha
Diamond Glass
Diamond Glass is a laminated glass that is nearly half the weight of most impact glass on the market and engineered to protect against hurricane-force winds, would-be intruders, noise pollution, and UV rays. It’s the next generation of impact resistance.
Thin Triple 2024 Update 1
Thin Triple

Designed specifically for the Northeast, Thin Triple glass offers superior insulation and durability to withstand the region’s unique climate challenges. This revolutionary glass meets some of the toughest window energy efficiency standards around, designed with two outer panes of traditional glass with an ultra-thin pane of Corning® Architectural Technical Glass (ATG) at the center.

Noise Reduction (STC)
Noise Reducing Glass (STC)
Bringing homeowners serenity inside, no matter what’s happening outside. All thanks to PGT’s highly affordable noise-reducing technology, created to minimize unwanted sound from traffic, construction, and the chaos of life. Sound Transmission Class (STC) is a method of rating how well wall partitions reduce sound transmission. At PGT, we’re reaching numbers that rival that of many exterior walls.
Noise Reduction (STC)
Intruder Deterrent Glass

Impact windows and doors are constructed with a strong interlayer that provides always-on home security. PGT Intruder Deterrent Glass may shatter, but it won’t create entry points, creating a more secure barrier that deters would-be intruders.

Doing Our Part: Turtle Glass

Building on the coast requires intentional consideration to ensure the surrounding environment is as unaffected as possible. Turtle Glass by PGT helps reduce our impact on the turtle population by keeping as much artificial light off the beach as possible, ensuring newborn hatchlings find their way home.
