|Integral Exterior Window Trim -"Potter Casing"|

Our windows now-a-days are energy-efficient and super high-tech - not just a single pane- and they are now, of course, able to make glass in very large pieces. These windows have one large piece, with a special coating on the outside of the glass to limit the sun's rays, an argon-gas filled air space, and then another pane of glass to make it "insulated glass" (IG). The SDL is trim inside and out and has a spacer bar between the panes of glass to look as if it is a continuous frame around individual panes, but it's all just for looks. Sort of funny really that we want our insulated glass to look as if it isn't insulated.... but imitating history with our architecture - now that could be a whole different blog!
