He added that Guardian’s “value added products and services help make possible net zero buildings, which combined with our value chain efficiencies, make it an exciting time for architects, designers and builders to use glass both inside and out.”
Visitors to Guardian’s display at Stand E34 / Hall 10 at Glasstec 2012 will experience the latest advancements in glass products, as part of Guardian’s “glass innovation section”: These include:

Guardian SunGuard advanced architectural glass products are high performance solar and low-E glass for commercial applications. SunGuard allows architects to build with light in a wide variety of colours and performance levels.
The Guardian ClimaGuard residential glass family enhances window performance through solar and energy control, UV fade protection, noise reduction and security.
Guardian InGlass, which is a glass portfolio for interior applications, will also be part of Guardian’s featured products. The technology behind InGlass gives architects and interior designers capabilities that ordinary glass does not – from scratch resistance and light control to shower protection and security.
