Australian Insulated Glass (AIG) uses only the latest-technology materials in its self-cleaning installations.
By reducing the frequency of manual cleaning, owners benefit by using:
Self-cleaning glass can be used without compromising glass transparency, and treatments are designed to last for the lifetime of the unit.
