Guardian ClimaGuard Glass Stars On Popular Lifetime DIY Home Improvement Program

Auburn Hills, Mich., July 26, 2012 – Guardian Industries showcased its ClimaGuard Low-E glass in front of DIY homeowners across the country on the July 26 edition of Lifetime’s home improvement show, Designing Spaces.

The episode, now available on the Designing Spaces website, will repeat on Thursday, September 20, 7:30 a.m. ET/PT.

Designing Spaces, now in its 8th season, is the premier home improvement

television show airing on the Lifetime network. The show inspires viewers on decorating ideas, do-it-yourself projects, and step-by-step home improvements to make every space count.

In this “Think Green” episode, Guardian’s Tim Clancy, product manager, residential segment, explains why ClimaGuard is a great solution for homeowners looking to improve energy efficiency. He also walks viewers through the process of creating low-E glass.

ClimaGuard coatings reduce energy loss by up to 50 percent over glass without low-E coatings. Guardian can tap into a variety of coatings in the ClimaGuard Residential Glass family to provide the greatest energy efficiency and comfort for different climates. According to the Department of Energy, windows manufactured with low-E coatings typically reduce energy loss by 30-50 percent.

“Designing Spaces is a great forum for Guardian to take ClimaGuard directly to the consumer in an easy-to-understand presentation that includes showing the glass in the plant, and finishing with installation,” said Mark Lacasse, Guardian group vice president, North America flat glass. “We explain how Guardian ClimaGuard low-E glass helps meet ENERGY STAR requirements in all U.S. climate zones. It delivers plenty of visible light and an improved solar heat gain. ClimaGuard delivers what homeowners want: lower cooling bills when it's hot outside, and lower heating bills when it's cold."
