Design with glass

From anti-reflection to color tints, modern glass enhances design in many ways.

Build with glass

Whatever the construction challenge, we have the glass to help meet it.

Guardian NEXA™

Guardian NEXA™ is a lower carbon glass that can help reduce the embodied carbon of the built environment – across a wide range of glazing applications.

Focused on the future, now

Guardian NEXA is the result of many different initiatives and endeavours across the fields of research, technical innovation and production efficiency. Hence the name, which is inspired by the idea of a nexus – a connection or series of connections at a central point. You could say Guardian NEXA is where environmental stewardship and innovation converge.

Reduced embodied carbon

Through research and development, technical innovation and manufacturing expertise we’ve reduced levels of embodied carbon compared to our standard float glass products. 

Reduced embodied carbon

Increased cullet, reduced consumption

Guardian Glass is able to incorporate a higher cullet content – broken or rejected glass – in float glass produced in Europe, helping reduce the consumption of raw materials and energy. Each ton of cullet replaces approximately 1.2 tons of raw material and uses less energy in the production process, lowering CO2 emissions by up to 315 kg.

Increased cullet, reduced consumption

Lower carbon, same great performance

Guardian NEXA can be used as a base or laminated glass with Guardian’s high-performance coatings – like Guardian SunGuard™ and Guardian ClimaGuard™. As well as lowering embodied carbon, these combinations can also help improve energy efficiency throughout a building’s life, and add security and sound reduction when laminated.

Lower carbon, same great performance

No compromise on aesthetics

The lower carbon benefits of Guardian NEXA don’t mean compromising on performance or aesthetics. A vast array of Guardian Glass coatings are available with Guardian NEXA, allowing you to choose what you need – from neutral to colored and transparent to reflective.
