Sunguard – Reflective Glass


SunGuard Advanced Architectural Glass provides a comprehensive range of design solutions that allows you to fully explore the aesthetic and functional possibilities of light. SunGuard is designed to provide varying levels of solar control for use in different climates and building designs. Sunguard is produced and distributed by our network of independent SunGuard Select Processors.

The colour of the glass, when viewed by reflection on the façade of a building, is one of the most important considerations for any building project and completes your design.

You may envisage a striking or subtle appearance, with the emphasis on neutrality, tinted hues or brilliant reflections. SunGuard Advanced Architectural Glass allows you to create a design to suit your vision.

The total amount of visible light transmitted through the glass over a wavelength of 380 nm to 780 nm with III, D65 and CIE 2o observer.

SunGuard Solar Series products offer a choice of colours situated to contemporary design, combined with variations of light and solar control performance. The Solar Series products may be processed as either annealed or heat treated readily from stock. Additionally the Solar Series products can now be used monolithically when the coating is on the inside of the window or spandrel panel.

The SunGuard High Performance Series of coated glass products combine solar control and low emmissivity performance in a single product. SunGuard HP coatings have exceptional optical clarity, uniformity of appearance and excellent selectivity. SunGuard High Performance glass is durable and may be tempered, heat strengthened, bent and screen printed providing variety in building design.

Contemporary building technologies demand ever increasing standards of thermal insulation combined with appropriate levels of solar control. SunGuard High Selective Series products are designed to reflect specific wavelengths of solar radiatio, ensuring that while most of the heat is reflected out of the building, the maximum amount of natural daylight is transmitted inside the building. The resulting energy savings for the heating, cooling and lighting provide improved design flexibility for the architect.
