insulating single pane/panel glazing
Explanation:
"grand jour" means you have a single piece of glass in your door or window (or several pieces in the case of multiple glazing), i.e. the opening is not subdivided into smaller panes by mullions and transoms, etc.

If it's a window, you could call it a "picture window".
