EPDs and HPD Cover Flat and Processed Glass.

​Guardian Glass North America has published Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) for flat glass and processed glass products manufactured at its seven North American float plants.

Guardian Glass also has an updated Health Product Declaration (HPD) version 2.1 for flat and processed glass produced in North America.

The Guardian Glass declarations are environmental product declarations in accordance with ISO 14025 and can help building projects earn up to two LEED® v4 credits.

 Guardian Glass North America Publishes EPDs & HPDs“Guardian Glass is committed to the efficient use of natural resources while operating in a way that protects the safety, health and well-being of our employees, customers, the environment and society,” explains Rick Zoulek, Vice President – Americas, Guardian Glass. “To further that effort, we’re supporting architects and designers who strive to understand the sustainability profiles of the building they design through these EPDs and HPD.

“It’s the goal of Guardian Glass to bring value to the building team by providing the information it needs to meet transparency and sustainability goals, as well as achieve credits in global green building rating systems.”

An EPD is a standardized way of quantifying the environmental impact of a product or system. EPDs are verified and registered documents that communicate transparent and comparable information about the life cycle environmental impact of a product.

HPDs disclose the potential chemical concerns of products in accordance with the Health Product Declaration Standard, which provides a consistent reporting format to increase the quality and availability of product content and health information.

The flat glass EPD from Guardian Glass covers unprocessed products such as Guardian UltraClear® low-iron glass, clear and tinted glass. The processed glass EPD covers coated, heat-treated and/or textured products from the Guardian SunGuard® and ClimaGuard® exterior glass product lines, and interior glass products such as ShowerGuard® coated glass. Each EPD and HPD contain a full list of the products it covers.

Guardian’s development of these documents included review and approval from UL Environment, a global service that reinforces credibility of sustainable product claims through a robust certification, validation and testing service.

“By earning an Environmental Product Declaration from UL Environment, Guardian Glass signals its commitment to environmental stewardship and sustainability leadership,” notes Alberto Uggetti, vice president and general manager of UL Environment.

The Guardian Glass EPDs and HPD are available on Guardian Glass’ website and the UL Environment website.

Cutline: Waiea Tower in Honolulu, Hawaii features Guardian SunGuard®​ SNR 43 coating on CrystalGray® glass. SunGuard SNR 43 coated glass is part of Guardian Glass’ processed glass EPD, and CrystalGray glass is included in the flat glass EPD.
