A vacuum insulating glass (IG) unit is provided with a plurality of spacers/pillars between opposing substrates. The spacers/pillars function (i) to support and space the substrates from one another, and (ii) as a getter to adsorb gas(es) located within the low pressure space between the substrates. Such spacers/pillars may be formed of one-piece getter inclusive material, or may be multi-piece including a getter coating.
1. A thermally insulating glass panel comprising:first and second spaced apart glass substrates defining a low pressure space therebetween; a seal interconnecting said first and second spaced apart glass substrates so as to hermetically seal said low pressure space between said substrates; and an array of getter inclusive spacers disposed in said low pressure space for maintaining separation of said first and second glass substrates.
