SunGuard® High Performance

AG 50

Low reflection, high style

SunGuard AG 50 coated glass can enhance the beauty of modern architecture with a hint of reflectivity and availability in several colors. It provides excellent vision-to-spandrel matching and a seamless, crisp look. This high-performance solution is featured on prominent projects like the Singh Center for Nanotechnology in Philadelphia and the EY Tower in Toronto, Ontario.

Key features:

Reflected neutral color: Provides unique color options
High visible light transmission: Illuminates interiors with natural light
Excellent vision-to-spandrel blend: Creates a seamless, consistent look
Dramatic energy savings: Balances thermal and solar performance to help meet or exceed energy codes

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.
