Guardian Clarity™

Invisible glass is here

For some applications, any reflection is too much. Guardian Clarity™ glass minimises light reflection and maximises visibility. It is created usingthe most advanced magnetron sputtering glass-coating technology onUltraClear® low-iron glass. And it leads the way in applications where reflection and glare spoil the benefit of clear sight and pristine views.

What you don’t see is what you get

Advanced glass coating technology allows Guardian Clarity™ to reduce reflection from 8% to around 0.7%, compared to uncoated glass. At the same time, it increases light transmission from 90% to 98%. This creates an almost perfect, distortion-free viewing experience.

The residual reflection colour of Guardian Clarity glass is a soft, neutral blue, which does not change when viewed from different angles. Clarity glass is available in multiple sizes. It is also offered already applied to both surfaces of the substrate or on just one side to allow further lamination processing on the other. That makes it exceptionally flexible for any application.

Guardian Clarity™ can reduce reflection of visible light from 8% to around 0.7%, while increasing light transmission from 90% to 98% (compared to standard glass without coating). A significant reduction in glare and reflections allows the viewer to assume that there is no glass (so-called "invisibility effect").

Applications

Guardian Clarity antireflective glass puts the focus on what’s behind the glass and not on distracting glare and reflections in front of the glass. Customers can clearly see every beautiful detail, from storefront displays and jewelry cases to priceless masterpieces and stunning vistas--and beyond.

Entertainment & culture

Art museums

Protect precious artefacts from damage or distress while presenting them in their best light. Virtually remove unwanted glare and reflections while boosting lighting levels so visitors have a clear view and see the full potential of the object, as intended.

Rooftop bars & restaurants

What could be more enjoyable than watching the sunset from a rooftop restaurant hundreds of metres above ground-- without the distraction of the glass? Showcase the view like never before, making memories that can be shared with others, enhancing your venue's reputation.

Penthouse suites

Imagine checking into an exclusive penthouse suite high above Moscow or New York City--the excitement when you first open the blinds to magnificent views. Hopefully, the suite has Guardian Clarity™ antireflective glass. With fewer reflections to obstruct the view, the perceived value of the suite increases.

Stadium executive boxes

Give VIP viewing area guests the most comfortable, unobstructed and closest view of the live action as possible. With Guardian Clarity™ antireflective glass, the view is truly ultra HD, offering guests a more intense experience, raising VIP seat value and increasing word-of-mouth advertising.

Viewing platforms & galleries

Glare and reflection were definitely not a part of Mother Nature's grand design. To truly experience the wonders of the world from viewing platforms, you would prefer to have no visual barrier at all. But when a physical barrier is needed for safety or protection from the elements, why not make it as invisible as possible? Guardian Clarity™ antireflective glass lets spectators enjoy and marvel at the best possible view without interference.

Zoos

There is nothing more thrilling than a face-to-face encounter with a wild animal. But only if your view is uninterrupted by glare and reflection from the sun, other visitors or surrounding compounds. Help visitors immerse themselves in jungles, savannahs, Arctic vistas or even undersea panoramas. In addition, help reduce disorientation reflections can cause for zoo residents.

Car showrooms

Design and appearance often top the list of reasons for vehicle purchase, and you can create the most advantageous showcase without glare, reflections or distractions. Say goodbye to angled glass and hello to Guardian Clarity™ and valuable floor space. Indeed, glass is an essential sales tool for any automotive brand.

Showcases

When some of the world's most treasured objects and artefacts are on display, glass should be a physical barrier, not an optical one. Guardian Clarity™ antireflective glass, used in combination with other state-of-the art products, removes glare and reflection, increases light transmission and offers a closer, more intimate interaction.

Storefronts

Put the focus directly on the goods a shop displays and not on distracting reflections and glare, especially on sunny days or with nighttime traffic. Only then can you truly showcase quality perceptions of the product on display, bring out colour vibrancy and reduce the need for additional lighting.

Airports

Traffic controllers have high-stress jobs keeping the people in planes and in neighboring areas safe, so the glass surrounding them should not add to the challenge. Guardian Clarity™ antireflective glass helps traffic controllers see their planes clearly and without distractions, no matter the weather or conditions.

Atriums

A beautiful, light-filled atrium is the final, high-end touch to the design of a shopping center or concert hall. People are drawn to gather beneath sun-drenched but surprisingly cool skylights or the warmth of the star-filled sky above, making them feel almost as if they are outside. The excitement of the crowd in the atrium is not only an attention-getter but a mood-setter, and Guardian Clarity is the perfect avenue to get there.

Hotel lobbies & restaurants

Never underestimate the allure of an interesting street-level display. Help hotels and restaurants showcase and attract patrons to a sumptuous design, robust ambiance and the promise of a wonderful experience. Give those on the inside an unimpeded visual experience of the city as well. Thanks to Clarity, it all comes to life with a view unobstructed by reflection and glare.

City windows

There is nothing more magnificent than a room (or office) with a view in a big, beautiful city. Guardian Clarity™ antireflective glass offers stunning views of the surrounding area with fewer reflections and distractions, thus skyrocketing the perceived value of the hotel, office or building.

Put reflections in their place

On your next design, whether it’s a stadium or a single work of art, increase light transmission and do away with distortion and reflection. We can assist in making enveloping glass picture-perfect, no matter the angle.
