Guardian SunGuard SNX 51/23 Named

Money-Saving Product by BUILDINGS Magazine

Auburn Hills, Mich. (June 17, 2014) – Guardian SunGuard SNX 51/23, the first commercial low-E glass product with visible light transmission (VLT) above 50 percent and a solar heat gain coefficient below 0.25, is a BUILDINGS Magazine Money-Saving Products Winner.

Triple silver SunGuard SNX 51/23 has the highest visible light transmission in its class, low reflectivity and a neutral blue reflected color. The glass is designed to meet the most stringent energy codes in North America without sacrificing appearance.

SunGuard SNX 51/23 and the other Money Saving Products were evaluated by the BUILDINGS editorial staff for the money-saving qualities they offer to in areas such as envelope improvement, energy consumption, and maintenance.

“No other commercial glass available today offers this much light with so little heat,” says Chris Dolan, Director of Marketing, North America Flat Glass for Guardian Industries. “Because of its exceptional performance and aesthetics, SNX 51/23 is a great fit for architectural projects across North America. We are honored that BUILDINGS recognizes how this performance translates to energy cost savings.”

This is the second straight year BUILDINGS has selected a Guardian product: Guardian DiamondGuard, part of the InGlass portfolio for interiors, was a 2013 winner. DiamondGuard has a permanent protective coating that resists scratching and looks like new 10 times longer than ordinary glass.

SunGuard SNX 51/23 is part of the Guardian SunGuard product line for commercial applications that offers excellent solar control and a wide variety of colors and performance levels. SunGuard products provide innovative, leading solutions for appearance, economics and energy efficiency, and are available through an international network of Guardian certified Select Fabricators.
