Guardian Debuts New Residential Glass Products To Help Window Manufacturers Meet Energy Requirements North to South

Guardian Industries today launched two industry-leading residential glass products at the GlassBuild America show that will help customers meet and exceed energy standards in North America while providing optimal views and comfort to a home.

GlassBuild America is the gathering place for the entire glass, window and door industries in North America.  

Guardian ClimaGuard 72/57 was created for northern climates to take advantage of the sun’s natural light and heat. This new low-E from Guardian incorporates a passive solar heat concept to selectively let warm sunshine into the home as a free and sustainable heat source while providing a powerful level of insulation against winter cold. ClimaGuard 72/57 has an uncommonly low U-factor, a neutral color for outstanding aesthetics and a high visible light transmission.

ClimaGuard 72/57 allows many windows to meet the new Energy Star Version 6.0 criteria without a major redesign and without a fourth-surface coating. Plus, this new coating can be used on surface #3 of an insulated glass unit to meet northern zone criteria, or “flipped” to surface #2 to meet north central criteria.

For the southern climate zones, Guardian ClimaGuard 53/23 was designed to provide unmatched solar protection while maintaining light transmission and crisp views. This triple silver low-E product has a super-low solar heat gain coefficient. Its crystal blue appearance also complements southern architecture, contributing to the aesthetic beauty of the home. This product delivers an impressive light-to-solar gain and a strong U-factor.  

“These new products are designed to give our customers a competitive advantage,” said Andy Russo, Guardian’s Director of Residential Glass Marketing. “Guardian is giving residential builders, architects and homeowners –from north to south – more options to design and build energy-efficient homes using high performance glass.”

Guardian ClimaGuard 72/57 and 53/23 will be on display at GlassBuild America September 10-12. For more information, visit or visit Guardian Industries GlassBuild America Booth 2123.
