Coated glass technology has taken a revolutionary step forward with the introduction of ClimaGuard SPF from Guardian Industries Corp.

Designed specifically for use in residential windows, ClimaGuard SPF blocks 99.9% of ultraviolet (UV) radiation without any visible change in day lighting.

Growing awareness of the risks associated with exposure to ultraviolet radiation has led the public to widespread use of sunscreen, sunglasses and protective clothing. Household furnishings have a good reason to fear the sun as well. UV radiation is largely responsible for the fading and deterioration of furniture, carpets, hardwood floors and other interior furnishings. This damage is irreversible. Until now, homeowners have been forced to accept undesirable tradeoffs if they wanted to protect their home furnishings from the damaging effects of the sun.

With the introduction of ClimaGuard SPF, Guardian Industries provides homeowners with the ability to completely block ultraviolet radiation from entering the home without sacrificing the primary benefit of windows - natural daylight and outdoor views. The full brightness and beauty of visible sunlight passes straight through this unique combination of patented glass coatings to illuminate the home. Only the invisible damaging UV rays are removed.

“When it comes to UV protection, ClimaGuard SPF is in a league of its own,” said Tim Singel, director of residential glass products for Guardian Industries. “High performance low-E coatings offer some UV protection, but not nearly enough and while there are other window technologies available offering increased UV protection, these products require a range of undesirable tradeoffs such as reduced natural daylight and a non-traditional window glass look.”

ClimaGuard SPF is the first window glass technology that delivers complete UV protection plus superior energy savings and the beauty of natural daylight. With ClimaGuard SPF, window glass looks the way glass should look – no bright colors, no dark tints, and no shiny reflections.
