At the intersection of thermal insulation and natural daylight

Guardian ClimaGuard® A 1.0 is a soft coat, single stock Low-E (low emissivity) glass that offers the optimum level of thermal insulation possible in standard double glazed insulating glass units. This means the glass is ideal for large glazed areas where insulation is critical, such as in structural glazing, facades, curtain walls, conservatories and windows. As a single stock product, Guardian ClimaGuard® A 1.0 glass can be used in either its annealed form or can be toughened.

Meets critical insulation requirements

The highest level of thermal insulation possible in standard double glazed insulating glass units

Natural aesthetics

Neutral colour and high light transmission provide a pleasant indoor environment with natural daylight

Best in threes

Comes in triple-glazed IGUs with very low U-values

Displayed colors are intended to represent actual color. Color is a function of light and reflectivity and cannot be accurately portrayed online. Actual glass samples should be used to determine color. Please order a sample and discuss color with your Guardian Architectural Design Manager to ensure you are pleased with your ClimaGuard selection before ordering glass for your project.

The thermal stress guideline is only a rough guide to the thermal safety of a glazing. Other factors such as large glass areas, shapes and patterns, thick glass, glass damaged during shipping, handling or installation, orientation of the building, exterior shading, overhangs/fins that reduce wind speed, and areas with high daily temperature fluctuations can all increase the probability of thermal breakage. The results shown are not for any specific glazing installation and do not constitute a warranty against glass breakage.
