Developed to meet the growing desire for higher transparency, neutral-looking glass for architectural projects, as well as special purpose applications such as digital signage, retail store fronts and museum displays, Guardian Clarity™ Neutral is an advanced anti-reflective coated glass that provides the highest transparency of any Guardian Glass product to date, providing truer, more natural views through the glass.
With a reflectivity of 0.6 percent, Clarity Neutral delivers a viewing experience like never before in Guardian. Compared to the current version of Guardian Clarity anti-reflective glass (0.7 percent reflectivity) Clarity Neutral provides even higher transparency by reducing the bluish reflections that remain in the glass, resulting in a more neutral remaining reflected colour. Even in low or diffused background light conditions, Clarity Neutral reduces undesirable light reflection and refraction across more angles and light frequencies. The new glass also benefits from lower haze and colour shift after being heat treated.
Liam Williamson, European Product Commercialization Manager at Guardian Glass said, “Clarity Neutral provides the very highest transparency of any of our products. In architectural monolithic applications such as facades, curtain walls and viewing areas, architects will have more freedom to create visually stunning, crystal clear, transparent glazing that blends the building in with its surroundings. In special purpose applications such as retail storefronts, museum showcases, picture frames and commercial refrigeration doors, Clarity Neutral reduces reflections and glare to such an extent that the glass appears almost invisible, providing clearer, uninterrupted, more natural views through the glass.”
Clarity Neutral is designed to be optimally applied on either Guardian ExtraClear® float glass as standard or Guardian UltraClear® low-iron float glass. The product is available in glass thicknesses from 3 to 15 millimetres, and sizes up to jumbo (6,000 by 3,210 millimetres). The glass is available annealed or in a heat treatable version for safety, security or acoustic applications. The double-sided glass is supplied with one temporary protective film for easier processing and fabrication.
