Guardian SunGuard® Solar Silver 20 was selected for the glass roof due to its high level of solar protection, particularly in applications where heavy sun would make excessive solar heat gain an issue.

The Chadstone Shopping Centre in Melbourne, Australia, is an amazing piece of engineering and architecture. With its stunning gridshell glass roof, the extended building is now the largest enclosed shopping centre in the Southern Hemisphere.

The extended building accommodates more than 100 new retailers, as well as leisure and food outlets. The 31-metre high, 7,000-square metre glass roof was a multi-disciplinary collaboration between architects, designers and engineers, working with research departments from the University of Bath and the University of Stuttgart.

Guardian SunGuard® Solar Silver 20 was selected for the glass roof due to its high level of solar protection, particularly in applications where heavy sun would make excessive solar heat gain an issue. The coated glass provides a neutral transmitted colour for the visual comfort of shoppers and retail staff. Guardian ClimaGuard® 1.0 T was also chosen for the roof glazing. The neutral colour and the high light transmission provide a pleasant indoor environment and actively promote well-being. The roof glazing also incorporates a smoke grey coloured PVB interlayer from Vanceva.
