Auburn Hills, Michigan, United States | March 19, 2024

Guardian Glass and the VELUX Group have entered a joint development agreement concerning tempered vacuum insulated glass (VIG).

This agreement will allow Guardian and VELUX to develop manufacturing processes and capabilities together to meet the growing, evolving demand for VIG.

“We are very pleased to enter into this agreement with Guardian Glass,” says Lars Petersson, CEO, the VELUX Group. “Glass is a key material in VELUX roof windows and we are keen to investigate together with Guardian how to advance its capabilities and integrate this into our products to benefit our customers.”

Adds Ron Vaupel, Guardian Industries President, “The VELUX Group’s leadership in architectural roof windows and decades of expertise in high volume fabrication of window systems makes the company the ideal partner for us to make VIG technology available to a broader market. Combined with Guardian’s years of proven tempered VIG expertise, we expect to propel VIG into a new era.”

With more than 170 years combined innovation and experience, Guardian and VELUX will leverage their collective technical teams, intellectual property and additional tools to advance tempered VIG technology.
