Guardian Clarity™ anti-reflective glass: Providing a facade experience with a different perspective
Bertrange, Luxembourg, March 30, 2016 – Traditionally, glass is used to create a barrier to protect its encased environment. However, selecting the wrong glass can affect the overall visual performance by resulting in unwanted glare and reflection, while at the same time reducing light transmission and overall aesthetics. Guardian Clarity™ is the right glass that can make the difference.
Standard glazing units reflect light at a level that may interfere with our ability to see through the glass easily and clearly. For some applications, any interference is too much interference. Examples are shop windows which lose impact due to distracting reflections, viewing platforms which lose visual accuracy due to distracting glare, and restaurants with breathtaking views that become completely hidden as soon as the sun goes down, to name but a few.
Transparency & Performance – above the limits
Now there is a solution. Guardian Industries’ Glass Group in Europe, a leading manufacturer of high performance glass and a key supplier to the building industry, has introduced Guardian Clarity anti-reflective glass. Created by using the most advanced coating technology, Guardian Clarity is ideal for glazing applications in which excessive glare and reflection create an obstruction and outstanding transparency is desired.
Guardian Clarity anti-reflective glass helps facades achieve more light and less reflection, delivering eye-popping optical properties for premium facade experiences, or any application in which a stunning view is an advantage.
Used in combination with other Guardian® glass products, it can help in meeting local regulations in terms of energy performances through thermal insulation and/or solar control. This can be achieved by combining Guardian Clarity with recommended Guardian SunGuard® and Guardian ClimaGuard® products that can provide solar control and thermal insulation. And that is not all. Clarity is offered as standard on Guardian UltraClear™ low-iron glass, leaving a crystal-clear and light-weight appearance.
Guardian Clarity anti-reflective glass offers best-in-class visual performance available today, maximising transparency with ‘more light and less reflection’.
Guardian Clarity delivers the difference where you need it– helping to create facades that stand out in the urban landscape.
