Advanced architectural glass

Guardian Industries introduced SunGuard SNR 43, a new glass coating for commercial applications that offers a high light to solar gain ratio and low solar heat gain coefficient. SNR 43 joins Guardian's other SunGuard advanced architectural glass products that improve energy performance and help projects achieve U.S. Green Building Council Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design qualifications, according to a company release. It features a visible light transmission of 43 percent and a SHGC of 0.23 on clear float glass, letting in plenty of light while meeting the latest energy code standards, according to the release. SNR 43 is available on five float glass substrates – Clear, UltraWhite low-iron, CrystalGray, Green and TwilightGreen. Because SNR 43 is available through the Guardian Select Fabricator network, glazing contractors will have local access and shorter lead times.
