Guardian introduces its New High Reflective Glass for Commercial Applications SunGuard® High Durable Diamond 66

Düsseldorf, Germany – October 21, 2014 – Guardian Europe will introduce SunGuard® HD Diamond 66 at Glasstec, the World’s Largest Glass Trade Fair. The new advanced architectural glass has a visible light transmission of 66% and an outside light reflection of 32%. This high reflection makes any building shine bright as a diamond.


“We see a trend in the industry for high reflective glass combined with a high light transmission,” says Volodymyr Shkurenko, Segment Leader at Guardian Europe. “Last year we successfully launched SunGuard HD Silver 70 and we now expand our range by adding SunGuard HD Diamond 66 to our High Durable portfolio. Guardian SunGuard HD Diamond 66 is an ideal glass for architects looking to create a comfortable building with a modern bright façade and is a great fit for architectural projects across Europe. This coating can be produced on ExtraClear® or on UltraClear™ float glass which allow for a very high transparency and colour neutrality when compared to standard float glass. Together with the SunGuard HD Silver 70, architects have a choice for a bright architectural glass combined with a high light transmission.


SunGuard High Durable products represent a new standard of coated solar control glass. Thanks to the durable coating applied using a sputtering process, these products are very easy to process and can be used monolithically on specific applications. The SunGuard HD family is ideal for use in double skin facades, spandrels, ventilated glazing, balconies and louvre windows.


SunGuard High Durable Diamond 66 will be on display at Glasstec in a double skin façade mock-up.Visit us at Stand F43 in Hall 10, Oct. 21-24 in Düsseldorf, Germany.


SunGuard HD Diamond 66 is part of the Guardian SunGuard High Durable product family. For more information on our range of solar protection glass, please visit our website: www.sunguardglass.com or contact us: sunguard.europe@guardian.com.
