Guardian Debuts SunGuard SNR 43
New commercial glass product demonstrates superior solar control
Auburn Hills, Mich. – January 4, 2012 – Guardian announces the next generation in glass performance with SunGuard SNR 43 a new glass coating for commercial applications that offers a high light to solar gain ratio and low solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC).
SNR 43 joins Guardian’s other SunGuard advanced architectural glass products that improve energy performance and help projects achieve LEED qualifications. It features a visible light transmission of 43 percent and excellent solar control: Its SHGC is just 0.23 on clear float glass.
“This product adds another great option for architects specifying all types of commercial glass products. The coating lets in plenty of light and the very low SHGC meets the latest energy code standards,” said Chris Dolan, Guardian director of commercial glass marketing.
The Guardian SunGuard brand features the widest selection of industry-leading glass performance products, offering multiple color and appearance options for commercial coatings and a wide variety of application flexibility. SNR 43 is available on five float glass substrates – Clear, UltraWhite low-iron, CrystalGray, Green and TwilightGreen.
Additionally, because SNR 43 is available through the Guardian Select Fabricator network, glazing contractors choosing this product can feel more at-ease with local access and shorter lead times.
