Year-round performance

A high degree of transparency and solar control. It is possible with SunGuard® High Performance (HP) glass, such as SunGuard HP Silver 43/31. With a light transmission of 43% and a uniform silver colour, this glass brings generous sunlight into the buildings it clads. At the same time, its solar control and thermal insulative properties keep tenants comfortable and reduce energy costs.

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 SunGuard 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.
