Glass Curtain Walls and Facades

Glass for curtain walls and facades on commercial buildings

The curtain wall method of glazing enables glass to be used safely in large uninterrupted areas, creating consistent, attractive looking facades. The variety of glass allows architects and designers to decide every aspect of performance, from thermal and solar control to the style and design statement of a building.

Guardian Glass offers a wide range of glass products for curtain walls and facades. In applications where higher light transmission and lower reflection are desirable, Guardian ClarityTM anti-reflective glass gives architects more freedom to create buildings that stand out – by increasing visibility at ground level or by creating a stand-out feature as part of a premium glass façade.

Guardian Clarity is produced as standard on Guardian UltraClearTM low-iron glass. This combination increases light transmission and neutralises the green colour of standard glass leaving a crystal-clear appearance. For a ‘no reflection’ effect, all glass surfaces of a monolithic or insulated glass unit are coated with anti-reflective coating.

In applications that require safety glass, Guardian Clarity is available on laminated glass, or can be tempered or heat strengthened by an independent glass processor certified by Guardian.
