The use of glass in buildings can affect their design, appearance, thermal performance, protection and safety, as well as the comfort and well-being of residents and visitors of the building. In fact, the issue of glass is one of the most important among those that need to be addressed when creating new and reconstructing old buildings. Architects and designers who are aware of all the possibilities of glass are like artists. They can use glass as a “palette” – to create iconic buildings that have a stunning appearance, optimal technical characteristics and amaze the imagination.
In developing and manufacturing Guardian SunGuard® products, we focus on the goals and ideas of architects. We combine rich aesthetic capabilities with advanced technical features. We help you discover new opportunities in the field of technical solutions, social and environmental responsibility. With such a wide selection of solutions and with support from Guardian throughout the construction process, your possibilities are endless!
Cutting-edge glass for cutting-edge projects
The SunGuard® SNX range is the best glass that Guardian can offer its customers. It can easily be called a work of art, as this glass allows you to create an extremely comfortable working environment or ideally convenient living conditions. It lets an amazing amount of natural daylight pass into the room, but at the same time helps to keep the heat carried by the scorching sunlight. The low need for artificial lighting and air conditioning directly affects your energy costs, which helps save you money.
SunGuard SNX glass is characterized by incredible transparency, neutral tint and low specularity, which gives the design of your building a fleur of sophistication and technical excellence. The stringent requirements applicable to the production of glass in this line make it possible to obtain a product with a consistent color scheme, which in turn makes the SunGuard SNX an ideal choice for fully glazed facades.
SunGuard® SuperNeutral ™ products offer high light transmission, but also help reduce the amount of solar heat stored in the room. In appearance, this glass is neutral, it can hardly be distinguished from transparent glass without spraying. SunGuard SuperNeutral products are designed to provide maximum heat savings and minimal solar factor. With their help, most of the solar heat remains outdoors, while natural daylight penetrates unhindered.
By selectively letting in natural sunlight, reflecting the sun’s heat, and also helping to protect the room from external temperature extremes, the architectural glass of the SunGuard SuperNeutral line is designed to significantly reduce your energy costs associated with heating or cooling the room.
High light transmission, energy saving and neutral color
The neutral shade of glass is one of the latest trends in modern architecture. Transparency is a classic, canonical design motif that naturally fits into any environment and space. Glass of a neutral shade inspires architects to bold experiments with the geometry of facades and filling the interiors.
Transparent glass allows natural daylight to freely enter the building, which in turn has a beneficial effect on the mood and well-being of those who live or work in this building.
And yet, glass is not just color or its absence, but above all – functionality. The SunGuard® Neutral HT multi-function glass is a special-coated product, the optimal choice for those looking for a combination of color neutrality, energy efficiency and sun protection in the glass.
Functionality and aesthetics all year round
The SunGuard® High Performance glass series is optimally rated in categories such as sun protection and thermal insulation. This is the ideal solution if you are looking for glass for all-weather use. Also choose the level of solar factor and heat saving that you need to a greater extent. The high level of energy efficiency makes the glass of this series universal: it can be used in a variety of climatic conditions. High Performance series is designed to reduce the energy costs of building owners associated with heating or cooling the premises.
Monoglass solar glass
The Guardian SunGuard® High Durable glass series offers enhanced coating resistance when combined with sun protection compared to other SunGuard® glasses. The SunGuard HD glass series provides superior optical and sun protection that traditionally matches soft coatings. However, thanks to the highly resistant materials, SunGuard HD glass with high-strength spraying can be used in mono-glazing by installing the coating towards the room (item No. 2).
