Guardian Glass™ North America has launched the latest product to help customers and homeowners prepare for the newest codes: Guardian ClimaGuard™ 70 residential glass with an industry-leading U-factor.
ClimaGuard 70 glass is part of Guardian’s effort to deliver new high-performing products that offer advanced coating solutions in anticipation of codes such as ENERGY STAR® Version 7.0 and International Energy Conservation Code 2021 that drive energy conservation in residential buildings.
With a visible light transmission of 69% and solar heat gain of 0.35, ClimaGuard 70 glass offers true views with bright neutrality. Its industry-leading center-of-glass 0.24 U-factor will help homes manage solar heat in warmer months and provide thermal insulation in cooler months. With this improved performance, ClimaGuard 70 glass, along with Guardian’s fourth surface low-E coating, ClimaGuard IS-20 residential glass will help customers meet the ES v7 North-Central performance criteria with double pane Insulated Glass Units.
Guardian is improving its residential portfolio by closely partnering with customers and will soon follow ClimaGuard 70 glass glass with another ClimaGuard product that will assist our customers in achieving ENERGY STAR® Version 7.0 performance.
