Anti-reflective glass in architectural applications
Guardian Clarity delivers an outstanding viewing experience
Glass has the ability to combine function, strength and beauty. It has many roles to play in modern architecture where the benefits of advanced technology enhance the timeless quality of glass. However, while the glass itself may be clear, the perfect view and transparency are often obstructed by glare, reflection or filtering of the original colours. These distractions keep us from having a clear view.
Always looking good – looking in and looking out
Guardian Clarity anti-reflective glass is the ideal product for any application in which excessive reflection creates an obstruction: from a shop window which loses impact due to distracting reflections, to a viewing platform which loses visual accuracy due to distracting glare, to a restaurant with a breathtaking view which becomes completely hidden as soon as the sun goes down. Guardian Clarity anti-reflective glass provides the perfect solution for:
• Retail storefronts
• Architectural entryways
• Airports and control towers
• Stadiums and arenas
• Petrol stations
• Car showrooms
• Hotel lobbies
• Restaurants, cafés
• Any residential or commercial building with a stunning view
Anti-reflective glass for eye-popping details
Guardian Clarity anti-reflective glass meets the need to maximise visibility with minimum light reflection.
The use of Guardian UltraClear™ low-iron glass in combination with Clarity increases light transmission and neutralizes the green colour of standard glass leaving a crystal-clear appearance. The desired “no reflection” effect can be created only when all glass surfaces of a monolithic or insulated glass unit are coated with Guardian Clarity.
Tailor-made solutions for performance above the limits
You will want to achieve the desired combination of maximum transparency and minimum reflection. At the same time you will need to meet local regulations in terms of energy performance, while making a rational and feasible specification with minimum compromise. Used in combination with other Guardian state-of-the art products. Clarity’s low reflection and higher light transmission can help you to meet these challenges.
Guardian Clarity is available in the industry‘s widest range with thicknesses of 3 to 15 mm and as already double-sided laminated glasses from 33.1 to 88.2.
Guardian Clarity provides a residual reflection of less than 1% (exact number depends on glass configuration and/or thickness) and a viewing experience through the glass that is virtually distortion free. However, under specific natural and artificial lighting conditions, light reflection may be seen by the naked eye in some low viewing angles. It is recommended that a sample is viewed in the actual location to understand which of these factors may be present in your particular application.
