Guardian Industries Expands SunGuard Series with New, High-Performance Coated Glass

Auburn Hills, Mich., March 30, 2011 – Architects creating the next generation of buildings now can choose from the latest generation of high-performance glass with the introduction of SunGuard SNX 62/27, the latest in Guardian Industries SunGuard SuperNeutral (SN) series of advanced architectural glass.

A new solution for architects who specify exterior glass for commercial projects, SunGuard SNX 62/27 offers plenty of natural light with an improved solar heat gain coefficient that raises the glazing light-to-solar gain ratio to 2.30. This broadens the range of design options and performance possibilities – including helping more projects qualify for LEED points – in the SunGuard SuperNeutral family of products.

 “SunGuard SNX 62/27 glass performs extremely well in blocking solar heat gain, thanks to three microscopically thin silver layers in the coating,” said Chris Dolan, director of commercial glass marketing. “Architects and building owners can achieve maximum energy efficiency while retaining high visible light transmission, making the new product suitable for all types of commercial projects.”

The product also features a neutral exterior appearance, so that buildings still reap the performance benefit without a dark or overly reflective look. SunGuard SNX 62/27 helps make the SunGuard brand the widest selection of industry-leading performance products, offering multiple color and appearance options for commercial coatings and a wide variety of application flexibility.

SunGuard SNX 62/27 is available on five float glass substrates – clear, UltraWhite low-iron, CrystalGray, Green and Twilight Green. Guardian is providing a sneak preview of SunGuard SNX 62/27 to contract glaziers at the Building Envelope Conference (BEC) in Las Vegas on March 28. The new product will also be showcased at Booth No. 2235 during the AIA National Convention and Design Exposition, May 14-18 in New Orleans. For more information, please visit
