Guardian Glass Europe

Create your own inspiration board using Guardian’s new online portfolio of glass projects for architects, designers and cladders

Bertrange, Luxembourg, October 19, 2017 – Guardian Glass is launching “Guardian Inspiration,” an online portfolio of projects that use Guardian glass. The intent of the portfolio is to inform and inspire architects, designers, cladders – and the glass community as a whole – to the endless possibilities of glass in building design and construction.

The Guardian Inspiration e-platform allows users to create “mood boards” or “inspiration boards” of glass projects that inspire them. These boards can help users gather ideas and creative inspiration for their next building project.

The online platform showcases stunning visuals of building projects and includes descriptive design and performance characteristics. A variety of useful features and functions allow users to quickly and easily share their favourite projects and mood boards with business partners and colleagues across a variety of social media platforms. Projects can be searched using three filters: Aesthetics, Performance or Country.

Volodymyr Shkurenko, Fenestration Segment Manager at Guardian Glass Europe, comments: “This tool is part of our effort to create an extraordinary customer experience. With our new online portfolio, architects, designers and cladders can browse through our glass projects and be inspired by what they see. We want to help stretch their imagination, help them see what’s possible® in terms of glass by allowing them to create their very own mood boards and sharing these with their work colleagues and business partners.”
