PGT Innovations (NYSE: PGTI), a national leader in the premium window, door, and garage door categories, is pleased to announce a first-of-its-kind collaboration with Corning Incorporated to produce next-generation glass technology beginning this year. The two products produced by the collaboration to date are PGT Innovations’ Thin Triple Insulated Glass Unit (Thin Triple IGU) and Diamond Glass, both featuring Corning® Architectural Technical Glass (ATG). Thin Triple IGU uses two outer panes of traditional glass with an internal pane of ultra-thin Corning ATG. Thin Triple IGU aligns with new energy and efficiency values under the Inflation Reduction Act and Energy Star® Version 7 guidelines. Diamond Glass, a laminated ultra-lightweight glass, weighs up to 45% less and is three times more scratch resistant than traditional laminated glass. Diamond Glass technology, set to become the standard glass used within PGT Innovations’ WinDoor product portfolio, can be used for laminated or laminated insulated windows or doors. With the launch of PGT Innovations’ Thin Triple IGU featuring ATG, the company will be the first manufacturer in the U.S. window and door market to offer such a product. Additionally, PGT Innovations will be the exclusive supplier of impact-resistant windows and doors featuring Diamond Glass for use in residential and mixed-use buildings in the U.S. The initial products and technologies resulting from this collaboration will be displayed in the PGT Innovations booth, C2119, at the 2023 NAHB International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, taking place from January 31 to February 2.
