Ombra™ — Insulating Glass Unit

Aesthetics, Performance, and Maintenance friendly design

The Ombra™ insulated glass unit was developed for exterior glazing applications using a architectural wire mesh core that offers excellent shading performance. Ombra™ offers the benefits of both visual privacy and a visible light transmittance of up to 50%.

In addition Ombra™ is able to achieve a solar heat gain coefficient superior to that of other insulated glass units without the need for tinted, reflective or specialty glass. This dramatically reduces climate control requirements and results in significant energy savings over the life of a building.

The Ombra™ IGU may be customized to meet a broad range of performance and aesthetic requirements.
