Post Time:Oct 09,2015Classify:Glass QuotationView:1063

Proprietary Coating System Expands SunGuard Product Portfolio Auburn Hills, Mich. - Guardian Industries Corp. now offers SunGuard® Spandrel HT glass, a new product for North America designed for building façade spandrel applications that benefit both architects and fabricators.   

Spandrel glass is located between a building’s floors, or vision glass areas, to conceal structural and mechanical components such as columns, floors, HVAC systems, electrical wiring and plumbing. This durable glass product can create a seamless and aesthetically pleasing look to a façade. It can also serve as a way to conceal interior views from the outside. “Guardian has a long history of providing glass for spandrel applications,” says Chris Dolan, Director of Marketing, North America, Guardian Industries Corp. “SunGuard Spandrel HT glass is a natural addition to the SunGuard brand of glass products, and will help architects and building owners achieve the desired exterior appearance to complement the use of SunGuard products.”

SunGuard Spandrel HT glass brings improved uniformity and appearance to spandrel glass with a higher opacity and less potential for streaking than standard spandrel glass solutions; the result is a smooth, matte finish. Architects will now have the ease of specifying a complete vision by adding a spandrel glass package to Guardian SunGuard high performance, low-E glass.

“Guardian offers convenience with stock sheets that can be cut into final sizes and tempered by the customer,” adds Dolan. SunGuard Spandrel HT glass is available in three commonly specified colors: white, warm gray and black. It is offered in two stock sheets sizes for better cutting optimization: 96 x 130” and 100 x 144”.

Guardian uses a lead-free, proprietary coating system for SunGuard Spandrel HT glass. During heat-treating, the coating bonds to the glass, providing a smooth, uniform appearance and long-lasting beauty to architectural projects. After heat-treating, the coating on SunGuard Spandrel HT glass has the characteristics of a ceramic frit.

SunGuard Spandrel HT glass can be used monolithically (coating on #2 surface), or as a component of an insulating glazing unit. Unlike standard spandrel glass using ceramic frit or paint products, SunGuard Spandrel HT glass may be used in vision (or back lit) areas.

Mockups are recommended to ensure the look meets design objectives. The Guardian SunGuard glass product line for commercial applications offers excellent solar control and a wide variety of colors and performance levels. SunGuard glass products provide innovative, leading solutions for appearance, economics and energy efficiency, and are available through an international network of independent Guardian Select® fabricators.
