Deco HT®

Guardian Glass Deco HT - 900 North Michigan Avenue building exterior

Back-painted glass for long-lasting beauty

Don’t let its refined, uniform appearance fool you: Guardian Deco HT back-painted glass is durable enough to stand up to Chicago’s Michigan Avenue winter after winter. Its ten-year warranty extends the life of designs, and its tempered quality adds safety wherever it is needed.

Spandrel Glass

Guardian Deco HT back-painted glass brings true, uniform color to curtainwalls and structurally-glazed designs. A cutting-edge proprietary coating brings superior durability to conventional frits prior to heat-treating. The coating is permanently bonded to the glass—offering the pleasing characteristics of a ceramic frit. Guardian Deco HT spandrel back-painted glass is easy to cut and fabricate.

Highlight your design

Deco HT brings harmony, contrast and a bold look to interior and exterior settings. Created using a proprietary coating system, Deco HT glass is both durable and eye-catching with true, uniform color. Its tempered quality ensures it can define spaces for years to come. Higher opacity and a smooth, uniform finish perfectly accent any design.

State-of-the-art technology

Deco HT back-painted glass uses a sustainable, cutting-edge process that blends beauty and performance. Instead of a brush or roll application, high-precision curtain coating gives Deco HT glass its superior consistency. Heat treatment then fuses paint to the glass to achieve a uniform appearance in three widely specified colors.
