Introducing ClimaGuard™ 55: Guardian Glass™ NA’s Cutting-Edge Coated Glass
Guardian Glass™ North America has proudly unveiled its latest innovation – ClimaGuard™ 55 coated glass, a game-changer in the world of residential window manufacturing. This extraordinary glass sets new standards in the mid-Visible Light Transmission (VLT) category by offering an unparalleled Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC). In a world where energy efficiency is paramount, ClimaGuard 55 takes the lead with its exceptional performance.
Meeting Stringent Energy Standards with Ease
Designed to meet ENERGY STAR® Version 7.0 compliance in the Southern, South-Central, and North-Central regions of the United States, ClimaGuard 55 coating is a double-silver marvel with triple silver performance. Boasting a remarkable 55% visible light transmission, a U-Value of 0.243 for outstanding thermal insulation, and a best-in-class solar heat gain coefficient of 0.258, it sets the bar high for energy-efficient glass solutions.
Aesthetic Brilliance Meets Functionality
ClimaGuard 55 not only delivers on performance but also enhances the aesthetic appeal of homes in warm climates. It provides a subtle, neutral look while effectively blocking solar heat and glare without darkening interiors, ensuring bright, inviting spaces and unobstructed views. For even greater efficiency, pairing ClimaGuard 55 with Guardian ClimaGuard IS 20 interior surface coating further reduces solar heat gain and U-Value.
