The new Fillmore complex in Denver will use Guardian SunGuard’s latest glass product, the Neutral 78/65
What do the Burj Khalifa, New York City’s Hearst Tower, and the Art Gallery of Ontario have in common? (Besides all being quite breathtaking?) They all are dressed up in Guardian SunGuard coated glass. Architects—like Frank Gehry, Sir Norman Foster, and the team at SOM—have long turned to Guardian SunGuard’s ultra high-performance products for their buildings. Not only do their glass panels look great, but they also use the latest technological innovations to shield structures from storms, significantly cut energy use, and save costs.
The Garibaldi Glass factory and headquarters in Burnaby, British Columbia. The factory’s main entrance features Guardian SunGuard SuperNeutral 68 on a full-size, point-supported, insulating glass wall. Buildings in heating-dominated climates like BC will benefit from Guardian SunGuard’s new high-performance glass.
Well now, Guardian SunGuard is launching an even higher-performance, energy-saving, innovative product for cold, or heating-dominated, climates. To be unveiled at the AIA Convention in Denver next week, SunGuard Neutral 78/65 promises to let in even more natural light and generate more solar heat—which will definitely help projects in cooler climates meet energy codes and qualify for LEED points.
