Guardian Introduces UltraClear™ Glass: Low-Iron Product Maximizes Clarity and Color Neutrality

Auburn Hills, Mich. – April 11, 2016 – Guardian Glass North America introduces Guardian UltraClearTM glass, a low-iron product that delivers maximum clarity and color neutrality without the green tint of standard glass.

Elevating light transmission and presenting views that are near true-to-life, UltraClear glass is a featured product from Guardian InGlassTM, a complete offering of interior glass solutions.

“Architects and designers choose UltraClear glass to bring natural light deep into interiors,” explains Sarah Wansack, Interiors Segment Product Manager, Guardian Industries Corp. “And the versatility of UltraClear glass means the product can be used with any low-E SunGuard® coating to combine vivid clarity with the high performance SunGuard coatings bring.”

Interior applications include frameless enclosures, walls, partitions, entranceways, display cases, tables, railings and more – all bringing pure, bright and boundless clarity.

“Guardian UltraClear glass allows natural light to pass through with remarkable clarity and brilliance that is perfect for shower applications,” says Jared Ross, President, Cardinal Shower Enclosures. “Frameless shower enclosures are in high demand, and customers want the true color transmission without the green tint from standard glass. Guardian UltraClear glass offers color neutrality all the way through to the edge.”

Fabricated, laminated and heat-treated like standard float glass, UltraClear glass elevates the performance and aesthetics of a wide range of glass products, whether it’s laminated glass layers without the distortion, back-painted or spandrel glass that achieves a true color match; or simply stunning clear views. Manufactured in Corsicana, Texas, UltraClear glass is available in thicknesses from 2 to 12mm and sizes up to 130” x 204”.

Guardian will feature UltraClear glass with its full roster of high performance glass and services at the American Institute of Architects Convention May 19-21, 2016 in Philadelphia. Visit Guardian at booth 4025 or guardian.com.
