AUBURN HILLS, US: Guardian Glass has introduced a new addition to its eXtra Selective family of solar control glass: Guardian SunGuard SNX 60.

SNX 60 is ideal for commercial facade applications that require high performance, energy efficiency and improved aesthetics.

Guardian Glass is part of Guardian Industries Corp, a privately held industrial manufacturer of glass, automotive and building products based in Auburn Hills, Michigan.

New SunGuard SNX 60 offers a highly desirable and consistently neutral transparent appearance. It was developed to provide optimal aesthetics and technical performance on both Guardian ExtraClear float glass – available as SunGuard SNX 60 – and on Guardian UltraClear low-iron float glass – available as SunGuard SNX 60 Ultra.

SunGuard SNX 60 is a triple-silver-coated, solar control glass that lets in 60 percent of natural daylight and just 29 percent of the solar heat – one of the highest selectivity (ratio of light transmission to solar factor) products available in the industry today.

It may help lower a building’s energy costs by reducing the need for artificial lighting and air conditioning, whilst adding a sophisticated touch to the design of the glazed façade. Moreover, with a U-value of 1.0 W/m² K, it provides a very high level of thermal insulation, which may help to reduce heating costs during the colder periods.

“The introduction of SunGuard SNX 60 marks the first of a new generation of triple-silver products characterised by enhanced aesthetics and colour, regardless of the angle of vision. We foresee the launch of further products for this range in the near future,” said Nicolas Gouzou, Product Manager at Guardian Glass.
