Guardian to feature DiamondGuard high endurance glass at IFMA

Auburn Hills, Mich. – October 25, 2011 – Facilities managers looking for products that enhance operational efficiencies through performance and durability will want to experience DiamondGuard High Endurance Glass at the IFMA World Workplace October 26-28 at the Phoenix Convention Center in Phoenix. DiamondGuard will be on display at Guardian Industries’ Booth 2351.

IFMA’s World Workplace Conference & Expo is the largest, most longstanding and well-respected annual conference and exposition for facility management and related professions.

Guardian DiamondGuard is 10 times more scratch resistant than regular glass, which means longer life. Attendees will be able to do a scratch test to see for themselves how DiamondGuard’s scratch resistance and highly transparent qualities make it perfect for high-traffic areas. Its interior applications include doors, wall panels, partitions, store fixtures, display cases, tabletops, cabinets, shelving, furniture and mirrors.

Because it is permanently fused with the strength of carbon, DiamondGuard has an extremely low coefficient of friction that permanently protects it from scratching, smudging and hazing. The glass’s scratch resistance is the result of Guardian’s patented vacuum deposition process, developed in response to the requests of facilities managers for a more durable glass product. Guardian DiamondGuard demonstrates sustainability in the built environment because high endurance glass minimizes the need for costly replacements.

Hotels, healthcare buildings and restaurants are just a few of the facilities that rise above their peers when the artistry and style of glass is introduced to an interior setting. In order to maintain its appearance amidst heavy traffic and constant use, however, the glass must be of the highest level of strength and resiliency. DiamondGuard addresses both with beauty and elegance.

“Facility managers need high-quality durable products that last,” said Diane Turnwall, Guardian Interiors market segment director. “DiamondGuard stands up to everyday contact with items such as keys, jewelry, silverware, briefcases and handbags. Its performance in the real world redefines the possibilities for glass.”

DiamondGuard is part of the new Guardian InGlass brand, which includes a new and comprehensive glass portfolio and online tools for architects and designers. The first of its kind in the industry, Guardian InGlass brings together Guardian’s entire interior product line to allow designers the opportunity to experience the varieties of glass in one place.
