Guardian SunGuard SuperNeutral 62 adds more options to family of high performance glass products

Best-in-class product will debut at AIA convention June 10-12 in Miami

Auburn Hills, Mich., April 12, 2010 – Guardian will debut SunGuard SuperNeutral (SN) 62, its newest advanced architectural glass product, at Booth 2617 at the AIA National Convention, June 10-12, at the Miami Beach Convention Center.

With 62 percent visible light transmission and a low 0.31 solar heat gain coefficient, SuperNeutral 62 provides natural light, less heat gain and greater energy savings. Together, Guardian SunGuard SuperNeutral 62, SN 54 and SN 68 are industry-leading, high performance products that have neutral clear appearances and the highest light to solar heat gain ratio.

“What’s more, with a best-in-class color rendering index, anything viewed through the glass will show an accurate and natural color,” said Chris Dolan, director of commercial glass products. “SuperNeutral 62 can save thousands of dollars on energy costs and help projects qualify for LEED credits.”
