Guardian has recently introduced Guardian Sun® in the UK and Ireland, a specially coated glass with solar control and thermal insulation (U-value of 1.0 W/m²K) properties, and an internal light reflection rate of 17%, one of the lowest currently available for this type of application.
Guardian Sun glass is designed to provide year-round comfort for conservatory walls. With a high level of thermal insulation and a neutral colour, energy-efficient Guardian Sun glass helps to retain the room’s warmth during cold periods whilst its advanced solar control properties block 57% of the sun’s heat, minimising overheating the room during hot periods. This outstanding performance delivers an improved energy balance and makes Guardian Sun ideally suited for wall glazing and window applications in conservatories and orangeries.
Home owners benefit from comfort for the whole conservatory by using Guardian Sun glass in conjunction with recently introduced Guardian ClimaGuard® Blue glass for roof applications. In addition to substantial thermal insulation (U-value of 1.1 W/m²K) and solar control properties ClimaGuard Blue filters the sunlight helping to minimise glare, has self-cleaning properties and its blue colour makes even grey, dull days look more appealing.
Steven Scrivens, European Market Segment Manager Residential at Guardian explains: “Most people decide to build conservatories and orangeries to extend their interior living space and it is essential for this space to be comfortable during all seasons. This is where Guardian glass is able to deliver a complete and perfect solution.
The ‘dream-team’ combination of Guardian Sun for the walls and ClimaGuard Blue for the roof will help provide a comfortable environment inside, no matter what the weather is doing outside.”
