New names and ranges for Guardian SunGuard
Guardian SunGuard is well established, representing the Guardian range of solar control products. As technology and legislation have changed, so have the products and the branding associated to the family of SunGuard glass.
For many years Guardian SunGuard has been synonymous with solar control products which reflect the suns short wave radiation away from the glazing, greatly preventing unwanted solar heat from entering our buildings. SunGuard also helps characterise projects, helping to create the signature for a facade.
Today the SunGuard family has been greatly extended, new products have become far more technically advanced offering higher levels of selectivity, creating more natural looking glass combined with complete performance. Whilst, some of the older members of the SunGuard family are still going strong, continuing to stand the test of time despite in many ways being one dimensional in their performance.
To rationalise the SunGuard range and create distinction between the different levels of performance, the branding for some of the ranges has been changed. The well established SunGuard High Selective range has for some time been accommodating the more advanced SNX products; these have now been given their own range – SunGuard eXtra Selective, where all new triple silver coatings will reside. The High Selective products have now been renamed becoming the SunGuard Super Neutral range.
The SunGuard Solar and the SunGuard High Performance ranges will remain the same, although the SunGuard Solar range has been accommodating the new SunGuard Solar HD products. SunGuard Solar HD offers an advanced level of durability and can in some cases be used monolithically, depending on the application. These SunGuard Solar HD products will now come under the SunGuard High Durable range.
There is also a new section dedicated to SunGuard speciality products which stray outside of the remit of other SunGuard ranges and are unique in their performance and capabilities. These will be branded SunGuard Advanced Solutions.
For the main part the new names for the SunGuard ranges will not impact product specifications, as the individual product names will not be changing. For more information on the new SunGuard ranges and products, visit www.guardianglass.co.uk
The new SunGuard branding is a positive move and a necessary adjustment, as more new and advanced glass options are added to the ever increasing SunGuard product portfolio.
