Don’t Interfere with Air Traffic Control – Guardian Will Display SunGuard® Radar Damping and Wave Reflecting Architectural Glass at Glasstec

SunGuard® Radar Damping and Wave Reflecting Architectural Glass

Düsseldorf, Germany – October 13, 2014 – Guardian Europe offers Guardian SunGuard® RD (Radar Damping), its architectural glass that dampens the unwanted reflection of radar waves in and around airports. This advanced coating product is designed for commercial applications and is available with three different levels of visible light transmission: SunGuard RD 50, SunGuard RD 55 and SunGuard RD 60.

“There is more awareness in the world of air traffic safety about the effects of unwanted radar reflection and our SunGuard Radar Damping glass may really help to minimize these effects,” says Volodymyr Shkurenko, Segment Leader at Guardian Europe. “Radar waves returned by airplanes can reflect off buildings back into the radar systems, creating phantom targets. These phantom targets can lead to the mistakes in the determination of the position of the aircraft or, in the case of multiplication, even result in transponder overloading.”

Guardian SunGuard RD is ingenuously designed such that the radar waves are reflected twice. This is done with such timing that these two waves eliminate each other. More information on this subject can be found on the Guardian SunGuard website sunguardglass.com.

Guardian SunGuard RD 60 will be on display at Glasstec in Dusseldorf, Germany, October 21 to 24, hall 10 at stand F43.

SunGuard RD 60 and Guardian’s other Radar Damping glass products are part of the Guardian SunGuard advanced architectural glass portfolio. For more information, please visit our website: www.sunguardglass.com or contact us: sunguard.europe@guardian.com.
