Guardian Glass in Europe launches new Glass Analytics tool to replace the Guardian Configurator for improved glass performance analysis.

Guardian Glass in Europe has introduced an enhancement to the company’s widely-used suite of web-based software tools, Glass Analytics, improving the ability of European users to demonstrate the advantages of high performance glass in building facades.

With Glass Analytics, users have access to a single online platform (glassanalytics.guardian.com) hosting an array of calculation and visualization tools, including comprehensive configuration analysis, acoustic calculations, photo-realistic rendering, Building Information Modeling (BIM), and more.

Glass Analytics is being introduced to European users as Guardian’s new platform for glass and glazing system analysis, replacing the Guardian Configurator, which is now deactivated.

To simplify and improve access to Guardian’s analytical tools, the Acoustic Calculator has been incorporated into Glass Analytics, providing users with a single destination for comprehensive glass and glazing performance analysis

Each tool in the Glass Analytics suite works to aid in the glass selection process, guide the user to the appropriate glass solution to match the design objectives of their project.

At each step of the design, specification and construction process, the tools provide specific information about the aesthetic and glass performance values for the glazing makeups needed to meet the project requirements. With Glass Analytics, users can:

  • Calculate center-of-glass performance metrics for highly-customizable configurations
  • Determine the acoustic performance of different glazing configurations
  • Generate photorealistic renderings of standard or custom glass make-ups
  • Access robust, custom Building Information Modeling (BIM) Content
  • Archive project calculations and generate client-ready reports

Dimosthenis Liouris, Technical Advisory Center Manager for Guardian Glass in Europe says: “Glass Analytics provides facade solutions that allow architects, designers, cladders and glass processers to explore aesthetic and functional possibilities while meeting complex energy, daylighting and acoustic requirements.

Our vision is to create value for our customers and we’re convinced this new software will contribute to it by providing them the tools they need to understand and specify the high-performance glass combination that will best suit their next project.”

The method for calculations generated using the Glass Analytics configuration editor is certified by the notified body KIWA for accuracy according to EN410 and EN673. Calculation data is taken from certified values, to ensure the reliability of data generated for use in the design of buildings and construction works.
