Guardian Glass provides a sense of things to come at glasstec 2018
Bertrange, Luxembourg, September 17, 2018 – The Guardian Glass presence at glasstec 2018 is in the form of an interactive, multi-sensory exhibit (Hall 10, Stand A24) where customers can experience the huge variety of possibilities of glass – not just for today, but tomorrow and beyond. Glasstec, the world’s leading event for the glass industry, opens its doors in Düsseldorf, Germany, 23-26 October.
The possibilities provided by Guardian Glass are captured in the booth’s design - concentric rings revealing the current and future possibilities of glass, whilst presenting them in a manner that plays on the senses of touch, sight, sound, taste and smell.
Starting from the outside, Guardian’s products of today – including Guardian Clarity™ anti-reflective glass, Guardian LamiGlass® Acoustic on Guardian UltraClear™ low-iron glass and Guardian Dielectric Mirror – are used to tease the senses of sight and sound.
Venturing deeper into the stand, visitors can discover some of the exciting products of tomorrow: Guardian’s new SPS (Single Product Solution), a technology platform that enables a single solar control glass product for its double and triple silver coatings that matches in both the annealed and tempered state; or IGUs made with recently launched Guardian SunGuard® SuperNeutral™ (SN) 75 and SN 63, that combine enhanced performance with a more neutral and consistent colour.
Finally, having reached the centre of the exhibit, a new dynamic glazing technology will create a visual stage on which Guardian will present its vision for the future of glass in a multi-dimensional experience. The short performance will provide the visual conclusion of our visitor’s journey to explore and See what’s possible®.
“At Guardian Glass, we’re not just helping to solve today’s challenges. We are ready to embrace tomorrow, the near future and beyond, where we believe glass will play an even greater role in the world, helping to solve new challenges that will arise,” explains Andrew Wilkins, marketing communications manager at Guardian Glass Europe. “Our stand at Glasstec 2018 has been designed to express just that, whilst entertaining and interacting with our guests as they physically experience the possibilities of our glass.”
