SOLAR CONTROL AND HURRICANE PROTECTION IN ONE EYE-PLEASING PACKAGE

Guardian introduces Sun-Guard® laminated glass

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. – (Oct. 30, 2006) – Continuing the push for innovative, value-added products that respond to market demands, Guardian has introduced a laminated version of its popular Sun-Guard® SN-68 high performance low-E glass.

“Sun-Guard SN-68 is Guardian’s high performance commercial low-E glass that is widely specified due to excellent light transmission and energy saving performance. Now, it can provide dollar-saving solar control and can be laminated for outstanding hurricane-rated performance,” said Chris Dolan, Guardian’s director of commercial glass products. “Not only will it drive energy costs down, but SN-68 will also deliver all the benefits of laminated technology including sound attenuation, safety, security and hurricane protection.”

SN-68 laminated will maintain the clear, neutral appearance the commercial market demands. Its high light transmission and excellent solar control combined with the protection provided by lamination – it passes hurricane small and large missile tests – give the product distinct design advantages for virtually any application.

“With the surge of volatile weather around the globe, especially in the costal regions of the United States, laminated SN-68 will provide a perfect solution for architects and builders,” said Dolan. “By providing many performance and appearance options, our customers will have the ability to choose exactly what’s right for their projects. And, they can rest easy knowing SN-68 will provide superior protection from Mother Nature’s worst.”

Guardian’s SN-68 is available through the Sun-Guard Certified Fabricator network. There are 10 fabricators around the country that are certified to laminate SN-68 high performance glass. Sun-Guard products are available locally with shorter lead times than conventional coated products. Check out sun-guardglass.com for a list of companies certified to laminate Sun-Guard coated glass.
