SunGuard® High Performance

AG 43

The easy choice for spandrel matching

SunGuard AG 43 coated glass can achieve a crisp silver look and help meet solar control goals. This solution gives buildings a consistent appearance from floor-to-floor when matched with warm grey spandrel.

Key features:

Low heat gain: Transmits less heat through the glass to help achieve energy savings
Seamless matching: Achieves great vision-to-spandrel blend for a consistent look
Color neutrality: Creates dynamic exteriors
Low indoor reflectivity, high outdoor reflectivity: Changes based on substrate

Displayed colors are intended to represent actual color. Color is a function of light and reflectivity and cannot be accurately portrayed online. Actual glass samples should be used to determine color. Please order a sample and discuss color with your Guardian Architectural Design Manager to ensure you are pleased with your SunGuard selection before ordering glass for your project.
