Guardian Heat Barrier

Guardian Heat Barrier

Guardian Heat Barrier glass has been a leading technology in self-cleaning ovens for over 30 years. Now the next generation of this Low-E range is bringing even greater performance and aesthetic advantages – to help keep consumers safe and satisfied.

Oven glass that loves the heat

The Guardian Heat Barrie range of Low-E glass is specially designed to handle the considerable heat generated by ovens, particularly during the self-cleaning process. To protect consumers from this, and deliver ovens that help enhance modern kitchen design, leading manufacturers often turn to Guardian Heat Barrier™. 

HB+™. Innovative and cost effective

Guardian HB+™ glass features an advanced, single-sided, transparent coating that delivers cost-effective system design as well as high performance. This is our lowest emissivity appliance coating yet, and has a subtle reflected blue color that’s especially effective with stainless steel. HB+™ is also UL and RoHS compliant and can be combined with other coatings.
