With the launch of new Guardian CrystalClear glass in North America, architects and designers can answer the broad appeal for a highly transparent glass.

More clear and color neutral than standard float glass and available at a lower price point than conventional low-iron glass, this important new option is ideal for a wide range of applications throughout the building envelope. It performs beautifully for education, healthcare, office, residential, retail and many other settings. 

Guardian CrystalClear offers:

  • 67% greater color neutrality than standard clear glass – so architects can bring their aspirations to life
  • 90% visible light transmission – for luminous exteriors and breathtaking views

“We know that everyone can appreciate a clearer, more color neutral glass, and Guardian CrystalClear surpasses standard clear to deliver that,” says Alan Kinder, director, Commercial Segment & Technical Services for Guardian Glass North America. “Now the look of low-iron is on the table for more projects that might have otherwise settled for less visual impact. This is an attainable upgrade from standard clear glass – in appearance and human experience – that Guardian Glass is proud to offer.”

Guardian CrystalClear rounds out a portfolio of Guardian Glass substrates, which include Guardian UltraClear™ low-iron glass, standard clear glass, as well as tinted glass options to increase design choice and control.

It combines with select Guardian SunGuard™ low-E coatings to bring attainable neutrality to high-performance buildings, so that architects can finely tune building aesthetics without sacrificing solar and thermal performance requirements. Upon launch, this Guardian CrystalClear glass can be combined with low-E performance coatings including:

  • SunGuard SNX 70+
  • SunGuard SNX 62/27
  • SunGuard SNX 51/23
  • SunGuard SN 68
  • SunGuard SNR 50 
  • SunGuard SNE 50 

Guardian CrystalClear is available in 6, 8 and 10 mm thicknesses and can be produced on jumbo (130" x 204") lites.
