About Guardian Industries : Advanced Architectural glass

Guardian Industries is a leader in the international manufacture and supply of clear float glass and associated float glass products. Our UK division is one of only three companies manufacturing float glass in the UK, with over £100 million invested in a float glass line in East Yorkshire.

Popular products include the SunGuard solar control and ClimaGuard thermally insulating glass ranges. Today it is more important than ever to specify the right glass for the right project.

Guardian Advanced Architectural glass products, feature all over the world from the tallest buildings, to the smallest, simple residential houses. Specifying the right glass can ensure an environmentally sound and sustainable project, that will run on reduced space heating and air conditioning for many years to come, minimising energy costs and reducing CO2 emissions.

Why specify costly heating and air conditioning systems when the fabric of the building and the glazing you choose can do the main part of the job for you!

For many years high performance solar control glass was mainly associated with high rise tower blocks and large commercial buildings. The traditional reflective aesthetic of solar control glass was often the key attribute in providing the finished aesthetic appearance and signature of large, mainly glazed constructions, whilst also providing the required performance to help control the environment inside the building. However, times are changing and the performance capabilities and aesthetic finishes of high performance glasses now far exceed the expectations we had just five years ago.

No longer do we have to rely on tints and highly reflective glass to achieve solar control; today we can achieve exceptional performance with a much more neutral appearance. With every improvement we make to our SunGuard products, Guardian Industries find we are able to create high performance coatings which not only have exceptional performance in terms of solar control and low U values, they also now have ever improving levels of high selectivity, allowing optimum visible light transmission and in turn providing a superbly natural aesthetic appearance.

Guardian Industries are now perfecting the ability to go completely against the natural grain of solar control products and produce glasses which can offer almost complete control in any environment, whilst maintaining low energy consumption and a good natural aesthetic appearance. Whether it’s a tower block in Dubai like the Burj Khalifa or a small domestic project looking to help reduce energy costs, Guardians Advanced Architectural Glass ranges have the right product to suit your project!
