Guardian® SMG

Guardian® Solar Management Glass (SMG) is an automotive glass that delivers both high light transmission and solar control. This increases visibility and helps reduce the heat inside a vehicle – by absorbing higher levels of solar energy.

More light, less heat

Guardian Solar Management Glass (SMG) combines high solar heat-shielding with more than 70% light transmission – in a varied number of tints, depending on customer needs. This means the glass helps make driving more enjoyable and more comfortable.

A clear view of the road

Guardian SMG is especially useful in windshield applications, and other vehicle areas that require the highest visible light transmission and solar control.

Designed for what really matters

Guardian SMG is also used as body glass elsewhere on vehicles, such as backlights and sidelights. And in transportation applications that require solar management.
