Fade & UV protection
Protection from UV rays and more
Large windows can let in beautiful light, but can also contribute to the degradation of home furnishings. Guardian offers spectrally selective low-E glass that, when laminated, blocks 99.9% of the sun’s harmful UV rays.
About spectrally selective glazing
UV light exposure is a frequent culprit in fabric and pigment fading, plastic deterioratoin and changes to the apperance of many types of wood. Spectrally selective glazing is high-performance glazing that admits the highest amount of daylight possible, while filtering ultraviolet (UV) light and other main causes of fading. The United States Department of Energy has established a Light-to-Solar Gain Ratio of 1.25 as the minimum measurement for glazing to be classified as spectrally selective.
