Fight condensation on windows in winter with Guardian ClimaGuard® Dry glass

Water condensation on windows is a problem that inevitably affects many modern houses and apartments in autumn.

Condensing water not only looks unappealing, but also can affect visibility.  The choice of ClimaGuard® Dry by Guardian’s Glass Group in Europe is a way to get rid of “steamy windows” while maintaining excellent insulating properties.Until recently, it was commonly believed that the phenomenon of condensation was typical for windows with high thermal performance glazing.Moreover, external condensation was widely considered the signature of a well-insulated, energy-efficient window. How did this belief come to be?

Good thermal insulation glass does not allow the heat to "escape" from inside the house, so the outer pane usually stays cold and allows the deposition of water droplets from humid air. This, however, is not the case with the anti-condensation Guardian ClimaGuard Dry glass.

The product's advantage lies in its innovative coating that allows it to effectively fight the phenomenon of “steamy windows”. Field tests conducted by Guardian in real weather conditions show that the average duration of water condensation on ClimaGuard Dry glass is just one hour. By comparison, for self-cleaning glass it is 7 hours, and for regular float glass it can be up to 8 hours. The all-new coating provides excellent transparency without compromising insulation or energy-efficiency of modern windows. The coating is extremely durable and requires no special maintenance. Guardian ClimaGuard Dry can be successfully used both in new buildings and in those undergoing a retrofit.. This innovative glass not only effectively eliminates condensation, but it also improves the energy efficiency of buildings and helps to meet the highest standards of sustainable construction. ClimaGuard Dry glass can be used in double- and triple-glazed windows. The product must be tempered to activate the coating.
