Guardian glass covers the Burj Dubai - The tallest building in the world

Monday, January 4 is scheduled as the official opening of the Burj Dubai in the United Arab Emirates – the world’s tallest building at 800 meters or 2,650 feet high.

The building features more than 2 million square feet of Guardian Solar Silver 20 and Guardian ClimaGuard NLT Low-E.

Together these two Guardian products offer superior solar and thermal performance. The glass provides an anti-glare shield for the strong desert sun, and a high light reflectance to keep the interior from overheating. It also had to withstand extreme desert temperature swings and strong winds.

“We’re pleased to have our glass on this prestigious, record-breaking project,” said Guardian Glass Group President Russ Ebeid. “Guardian was able to meet the exacting specifications of the architect and builder.”
