SunGuard Advanced Architectural Glass

Building with light. That's what SunGuard Advanced Architectural Glass from Guardian is all about. Our comprehensive range of coatings, colors and design solutions allows architects to explore fully the aesthetic and functional possibilities of light — both interior and exterior — while meeting complex energy and performance requirements. Drawing on the cumulative expertise of glassmakers and production teams throughout the world, Guardian continually applies science and cutting-edge technology to the development of new SunGuard products that expand the limits of performance. This level of commitment extends locally to independent SunGuard Select Fabricators, who are trained and certified by Guardian to provide high-quality coated glass products. In these pages you will see the many ways Guardian helps architects build some of the world's most innovative buildings. With light.

Spandrel

Guardian can help architects and designers achieve a desired spandrel appearance for SunGuard coatings—matching to vision glass or complementary—by using ceramic frit or silicone paint. We recommend that full-size mock-ups be prepared and approved in order to confirm the most desirable spandrel option for your specific project.

SunGuard Select Fabricators

SunGuard Advanced Architectural Glass products are produced at several U.S. locations and are distributed through a nationwide network of independent SunGuard Select Fabricators. These fabricators have completed a rigorous certification process administered by Guardian. SunGuard Select Fabricators offer comprehensive glass fabrication for commercial projects and typically are able to cut, heat-treat, insulate, laminate, silkscreen and produce spandrel glass. In addition, some Select Fabricators can bend SunGuard coated glass for more complex designs. SunGuard Select Fabricators provide glass samples for mock-ups and typically offer fast-track delivery.
