Guardian SatinDeco®

The privacy you need. The light you want.

Guardian SatinDeco® acid-etched translucent glass is ideal for both interior and exterior applications. Guardian’s proprietary acid-etching process produces a satin-like, smooth finish that obscures the view through the glass, while maintaining a high level of light transmittance. Guardian SatinDeco has a uniform surface that is extremely robust and durable, helping prevent marks from grease or dirt. Guardian SatinDeco® can be used on its own as monolithic glass for decorative and interior fittings, or can be fabricated into an insulating glass unit combined with other Guardian coated glass products to produce high performance glazing with features such as thermal insulation and solar control.


SatinDeco is Guardian’s unique family of acid-etched glass, with four different levels of translucence providing maximum creative flexibility. Whether your design calls for complete privacy or a small amount of diffused light, the Satindeco family can provide the right solution, allowing the use of glass in applications previously thought impossible.                                              
Once installed, SatinDeco does not require any special care. The extra-smooth finish is resistant to stains and marks from fingerprints—and remarkably easy to clean. And as time passes, you can be sure that SatinDeco will retain its elegance and ease of maintenance. 
Count on the SatinDeco portfolio to create partitions, staircases, doors, shower enclosures, furniture—you name it. Experience the design flexibility that is SatinDeco.
With four different intensities, SatinDeco invites you to test your creativity and unfetter your imagination. Want privacy without losing light? Double Sided is the answer. Want a silky smooth finish that adds visual interest to a space? Try Elegance and take your design to a whole new level of sophistication.        
The collection is organized by level of translucence, from the most translucent - Light, to the most opaque, Double Sided.
