Guardian Wins DWM Magazine Green Award

ClimaGuard Products Give Window Manufacturers More Energy-Efficient Glass Options -- Guardian Industries has been named a 2013 Green Award Winner by Door and Window Market Magazine (DWM), the leading trade publication serving the door and window industry.

The company was chosen by the magazine’s editors for its introduction of two new residential products, Guardian ClimaGuard 72/57 and Guardian ClimaGuard 53/23, that will help window manufacturers meet the new Energy Star requirements.The magazine also commends the company for developing the products to excel in different climate zones.

“These new products are designed to give our customers a competitive advantage,” said Andy Russo, Guardian’s director of Residential Glass Marketing. “Guardian is giving window manufacturers, residential builders, architects and homeowners – from north to south – more options to design and build energy-efficient homes using high performance glass.”

Guardian ClimaGuard 72/57 was created for northern climates to take advantage of the sun’s natural light and heat. This new low-E glazing incorporates a passive solar heat concept to selectively let sunshine warm the home as a free and sustainable heat source while providing a powerful level of insulation against winter cold.

ClimaGuard 72/57 allows many windows to meet the new Energy Star Version 6.0 criteria without a major redesign and without a fourth-surface coating. Plus, this new coating can be used on surface #3 of an insulated glass unit to meet northern zone criteria, or “flipped” to surface #2 to meet north central criteria.

For the southern climate zones, Guardian ClimaGuard 53/23 was designed to provide unmatched solar protection while maintaining light transmission and crisp views. This triple silver low-E product has a super-low solar heat gain coefficient. Its crystal blue appearance also complements southern architecture, contributing to the aesthetic beauty of the home. ClimaGuard 53/23 delivers an impressive light-to-solar gain and a strong U-factor.  

“DWM’s green awards recognize a few select companies who truly embrace energy-efficient principles and practices,” says DWM editor and publisher Tara Taffera. “Guardian Industries is more than deserving and we applaud them for serving as an innovator and launching these products that fit a need in the industry.”

Door and Window Market magazine serves manufacturers and dealers and distributors of door and window products. It is the only industry publication that is audited by BPA Worldwide and has a circulation of more than 35,000 subscribers. The products will be featured in the magazine’s October issue.
