Guardian Glass rebrands spacer as Guardian Align™

Change to black PIB sealant completes IGU refresh

Guardian Glass North America announced updates to its residential insulating glass products: its proprietary warm-edge spacer currently manufactured in its Sun Prairie, Wisc., fabrication facility is now branded Guardian Align™, and Guardian changed the colour of its primary polyisobutyl sealant to black in order to create cleaner looking sightlines that seamlessly blend in with more modern and contemporary window frames.

Guardian knows that failed insulated units lead to expensive warranty repairs and brand destruction. Therefore, Guardian has designed IGUs using Guardian Align™ spacers to have a robust seal that provides industry-leading high argon retention rates and low seal failures to ensure customers can focus on making and selling windows, not replacing them.

IGUs constructed by Guardian Glass with the Guardian Align™ spacer and new black sealant offer customers improved thermal insulation while providing best-in-class durability and strength. The result of extensive research and development, Guardian Align™ spacers feature:

  • Ultra-thin, low conductivity corrugated stainless steel construction
  • 90° corners with a hermetic 4th corner joint
  • High-strength, low-conductivity PIB primary sealant with extra-long diffusion path
  • High-modulus, commercial-grade silicone secondary sealant
  • 20-year warranty

“Guardian Align™ spacers are extremely durable with impressive thermal insulation performance,” said Scott Billings, Vice President and General Manager, Glass Fabrication, Guardian Glass North America. “IG units made with Guardian Align™ spacers and our robust coating portfolio deliver value to our customers in both residential and light commercial applications.”
