Guardian Glass introduces Guardian SunGuard® SNX 60 and SNX 60 Ultra
- Triple silver high performance glass offers enhanced aesthetics.
- Consistently neutral transparent appearance.
Bertrange, Luxembourg, April 3, 2017 – Guardian Glass is introducing a new addition to its eXtra Selective family of solar control glass: Guardian SunGuard® SNX 60. SNX 60 is ideal for commercial facade applications that require high performance, energy efficiency and improved aesthetics.
New SunGuard® SNX 60 offers a highly desirable and consistently neutral transparent appearance. It was developed to provide optimal aesthetics and technical performance on both Guardian ExtraClear® float glass – available as SunGuard® SNX 60 – and on Guardian UltraClear™ low-iron float glass – available as SunGuard® SNX 60 Ultra.
According to Nicolas Gouzou, Product Manager at Guardian Glass: “The introduction of SunGuard® SNX 60 marks the first of a new generation of triple-silver products characterised by enhanced aesthetics and color, regardless of the angle of vision. We foresee the launch of further products for this range in the near future.”
SunGuard® SNX 60 is a triple-silver coated, solar control glass that lets in 60% of natural daylight and just 29% of the solar heat – one of the highest selectivity (ratio of light transmission to solar factor) products available in the industry today. It may help lower a building’s energy costs by reducing the need for artificial lighting and air conditioning, whilst adding a sophisticated touch to the design of the glazed façade. Moreover, with a U-value of 1.0 W/m²K, it provides a very high level of thermal insulation, which may help to reduce heating costs during the colder periods.
New SunGuard® SNX 60 is available in both annealed and heat treatable versions. It can also be supplied on laminated glass for safety, security or acoustic applications.
