Guardian Industries, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of glass products, and Soladigm, a manufacturer of highly energy-efficient dynamic glass for buildings, announced today that the companies are working together to market and sell Soladigm Dynamic Glass in the commercial buildings sector. The partnership positions Soladigm for global adoption of its dynamic glass product and provides Guardian with an innovative architectural glass technology for its customers.

Guardian will incorporate Soladigm’s Dynamic Glass product into its SunGuard® advanced architectural glass portfolio of solutions with the introduction of a SunGuard EC product line. Guardian SunGuard will also integrate the new product into its Build with Light® marketing program, an initiative that connects architects, glaziers and select fabricators with its product line.

Soladigm Dynamic Glass utilizes electrochromic technology to switch from clear to tinted on demand, and enables control of heat and glare in buildings while providing greater comfort, uninterrupted views, and natural daylight. Soladigm Dynamic Glass can significantly reduce heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) energy usage in commercial buildings, in particular during times of peak load.

The dynamic glass product will be on display at the American Institute of Architects (AIA) 2012 National Convention and Design Exposition, from May 17-19, in Washington, D.C.
