Guardian is exhibiting a new product from its ClimaGuard family of residential window low-E coatings, the latest from Guardian InGlass advanced interior glass products and two new items in the SunGuard advanced architectural glass group.
“We’re excited to get these products in front of our customers and the industry at GlassBuild,” said Chris Dolan, Guardian director of commercial glass marketing. “As the sold-out trade show indicates, GlassBuild is one of the places to be. It’s inspiring for all of our product segments to see what opportunities will present themselves as we all look to 2012.”
Guardian’s booth – 1711 – at GlassBuild features:
• Guardian ClimaGuard products to meet solar and energy control needs, provide UV protection, enhance security and privacy, and reduce noise, such as:
ClimaGuard 62/27– ClimaGuard 62/27 provides that third layer of silver that many window makers are looking for. ClimaGuard 62/27 blocks more heat or retains more warmth. It also reduces the amount of harmful UV rays, down to 5% of that generated by the sun to extend the life of woodwork, carpets and furnishings. ClimaGuard IS – ClimaGuard IS-15 and IS-20 – help meet new codes and Energy Star standards without the use of Argon gas or a third glass lite, while giving window makers easy fabrication options.
o Guardian InGlass provides a portfolio of interior glass products including Joel Berman editions, the company’s exclusive partnership delivering patterned glass with renowned glass artist Joel Berman; and Guardian DiamondGuard, high endurance glass. DiamondGuard glass resists scratching and looks like new up to 10 times longer than ordinary glass, making it the perfect choice for high-traffic areas.
o The extensive website and sample system behind Guardian InGlass provides forward-thinking interior glass solutions that make it easy to put creativity into action.
o SunGuard commercial glass products save energy and help projects achieve LEED qualifications. SunGuard SNX 62/27 – SunGuard’ss triple silver product – offers the highest light-to-solar gain ratio in the product family. SunGuard IS Interior Surface coatings – Guardian is debuting IS 20, the first of many SunGuard IS products to come. IS 20 lowers the U-value five points. SunGuard SNR 43 – also making its public debut – SNR 43 offers a high LSG ratio and low solar heat gain coefficient, adding another great option for architects specifying commercial glass and curtainwall.
