glass&sealedunits Guardian’s New ClimaGuard A+ offers very best WER results Now with new performance figures, ClimaGuard A+ from Guardian Glass UK offers the very best WER results. The new , improved ClimaGuard A+ Low E glass retains the same 1.2 U value combined with an increased solar heat gain (g value) of 73% with a Clear outer pane or as high as 76% with a Low Iron outer pane. This improvement makes it the leading soft coat Low E glass in WER performance. The new ClimaGuard A+ uses an advanced coating layer stack to increase solar heat gain performance; however, ensuring this increase didn’t affect the reliable durability of the original ClimaGuard A+ was paramount. To retain this durability, the coating layer stack was maintained, yet finely tuned to achieve the highest solar heat gain (g value) currently possible in combination with a 1.2 U value performance. “The redevelopment of ClimaGuard A+ was imperative to its continued success in the UK and Ireland,” said Mark Bristow, Regional Manager for Guardian Glass. “Having our own coater has enabled us to work with the coating layer stack for ClimaGuard A+ and improve its performance without compromising its durability.” Guardian’s new ClimaGuard A+ is available now. latestproducts City Building returns to Halo (L) Cllr.
