With these new products, Guardian offers architects, glazing contractors and fabricators the broadest post-temperable coated product line in the industry.
The expanded Sun-Guard product line features a wide variety of high performance coated glass products that can be cut, laminated, heat-treated, bent, and insulated after the coating is applied. The new products give independent fabricators increased market opportunity because, without sacrificing performance, they can be processed near a project, which shortens lead times and supports fast-track project completion. In addition, Guardian's new coatings provide architects with more design flexibility while delivering excellent solar control.
