The new Fillmore complex in Denver will use Guardian SunGuard's latest glass product, the Neutral 78/65
What do the Burj Khalifa, New York City's Hearst Tower, and the Art Gallery of Ontario have in common? (Besides all being quite breathtaking?) They all are dressed up in Guardian SunGuard coated glass. Architects—like Frank Gehry, Sir Norman Foster, and the team at SOM—have long turned to Guardian SunGuard's ultra high-performance products for their buildings. Not only do their glass panels look great, but they also use the latest technological innovations to shield structures from storms, significantly cut energy use, and save costs.
The Garibaldi Glass factory and headquarters in Burnaby, British Columbia. The factory’s main entrance features Guardian SunGuard SuperNeutral 68 on a full-size, point-supported, insulating glass wall. Buildings in heating-dominated climates like BC will benefit from Guardian SunGuard’s new high-performance glass.
Current SunGuard-coated glass products already can save thousands of dollars in energy-related costs for a typical commercial building in a 10-year period. With SunGuard Neutral 78/65, the high 78% visible light transmission (that's a lot!) and higher solar-heat gain means that the glass lets the heat in and keeps it in, using the sun as a sustainable energy source. Neutral 78/65 can be used in double- or triple-glazed units, and can be combined with other SunGuard low-E coatings for maximum energy efficiency.
