SunGuard® SNX is the best solar protective glass Guardian has to offer. This state-of-the-art glass helps create an exceptionally comfortable work and living environment. It lets in an astonishing level of natural daylight as well as an amazingly low amount of solar heat. A lower demand for artificial light and air conditioning translates directly to energy cost savings.

SunGuard SNX offers beautiful, neutral transparency and low reflection that add a sophisticated touch to your building’s design. Tight manufacturing guidelines deliver a consistent colour, making SunGuard SNX the ideal choice for completely glazed facades.

No need to compromise

It’s simple. More natural light means happier, more energetic building occupants. You can accomplish “daylighting,” or illuminating buildings by natural light, by using windows, skylights and any other surfaces in your building design. By reducing artificial lighting, these surfaces, in turn, provide effective internal lighting, resulting in energy savings and an overall greener building. Traditionally, more light has meant more heat. However, SunGuard SNX coatings reflect heat while letting larger amounts of light into the building, so you no longer have to sacrifice high light transmission for energy efficiency.


Guardian SunGuard SNX has several products to meet your high light transmission needs while still blocking solar heat, saving on energy costs and helping projects qualify for LEED® credits. SunGuard SNX is available on Guardian UltraClear® low-iron and Guardian ExtraClear™.
