Under two situation will you have 2 pieces of glass sandwiching air:
- double-pane glass, as in insulated glass.
- a sliding window opened behind its fixed neighboring glass
The wrong tint, ie, dual-pane-incompatible ones, will cause the wrong infrared light to get trapped between glasses. On a hot day, it will crack your glass!
