Guardian improves glass performance with SunGuard IS 20

Guardian Industries’ first commercial interior surface coating for glass – SunGuard IS 20 – improves the effectiveness of advanced architectural glass when combined with any SunGuard coatings.

Guardian Industries offers architects and building owners another layer of energy performance control with its first commercial interior surface coating for glass, SunGuard IS 20 (Interior Surface). The new product enables cost efficiency and “super performance.”
SunGuard IS 20 improves the effectiveness of Guardian’s advanced architectural glass when combined with any SunGuard coatings. For example, when SunGuard IS 20 is teamed with Guardian SNX 62/27, the resulting glass product has the highest performance level of any dual glaze IG unit available from the company, featuring best-in-class light-to-solar-gain and the lowest U-factor.
When Guardian SNX 62/27 is combined with SunGuard IS 20, the result is a high performance glass with a visible light transmission of 60%, a solar heat gain coefficient of 0.25 and a U-value as low as 0.20 with argon fill.
“When SunGuard IS 20 is added to the fourth surface of an insulating glass unit, the entire unit realizes high visible light transmission, very low U-values, less heat gain and substantial energy savings,” said Chris Dolan, Guardian director of commercial glass marketing. “Because of this new product, the performance of double glaze products can approach triple glaze units. If triple glaze is specified, SunGuard IS 20 can help create a super-performing insulated glass unit.”
Additionally, because SunGuard IS 20 is available through the Guardian Select SunGuard Fabricator network, contractors choosing this product can feel more at-ease about availability and ease of fast delivery.
Guardian is a diversified global manufacturing company headquartered in Auburn Hills, Michigan, with leading positions in float glass, fabricated glass products, fiberglass insulation and other building materials for commercial, residential and automotive applications. Guardian, its subsidiaries and affiliates employ 18,000 people and operate facilities throughout North America, Europe, South America, Asia, Africa and the Middle East.
