Guardian Glass Launches New Sustainability Calculator

Architects Can Now Evaluate Guardian Glazing Product Compliance With Green Rating Systems

Auburn Hills, Mich. – July 6, 2017 – Architects and designers can now efficiently evaluate environmental performance attributes of Guardian glass products with the new Guardian Sustainability Calculator. This easy-to-use digital program helps users see how Guardian glazing make-ups can help a project earn certification from green building rating systems such as LEED®, the Living Building Challenge and the WELL Building Standard.

“The Guardian Sustainability Calculator gives you the power to select Guardian SunGuard® or InGlass® architectural glass products, evaluate them and document their contribution potential,” explains Brian Schulz, product manager, Guardian Glass North America. “The program generates a comprehensive report on a range of rating systems, helps architects and designers see what’s possible™ and aids in the specification process.”

The newest component of Guardian Glass Analytics™ for North America, the Sustainability Calculator joins the Performance Calculator, Building Energy Calculator, BIM Generator and the Glass Visualizer. Together, these industry-leading tools provide comprehensive engineering and analytical modeling and custom glass content that demonstrate the advantages of high performance glass in building facades.
