Guardian 275® Wall Systems
Guardian 275® wall systems are our most versatile and customizable translucent panel option. From numerous specialty configurations to insulation and custom finish options to pre-assembled and unitized systems, we can configure Guardian 275® to meet your project’s demands. Guardian 275® systems are a great solution for retail and office spaces, education facilities, military installations and more, and each system is backed by industry-best warranties.
Guardian 275® translucent panel wall systems are the most versatile in our product line. From the highest level of performance options to numerous specialty configurations and industry-long warranties, Guardian 275® systems are the perfect custom daylighting choice.
Like our other translucent panel systems, Guardian 275® wall systems feature a lightweight sandwich panel design, and come standard with concealed fasteners, an innovative “snap and capture” detail that provides rapid field installation and secure holding power, and unsurpassed protection against water and air infiltration by using only EPDM gasketing and long-lasting high-performance sealants. No other translucent panel systems offers this much at no extra charge. Guardian 275® is also available with a variety of insulation options, as well as a 4” panel option, enhancing thermal performance.
In design, versatility is key. And while Guardian 275® offers glare-free, diffuse natural light to illuminate interior spaces, it also gives you the options to make your design a reality. From blast and hurricane protection systems to mixed glazed systems that combine fixed and/or operable glass to our Translucent Adapter Panel that allows for easy integration of our 2.75” systems into existing 1” curtainwall framing, we have a daylighting solution that’s right for your needs and budget. We also offer pre-assembled options for select smaller sized units, making installation quick and easy.
