Guardian Glass has created an online Resource Hub, which offers 24/7 access to technical information, analytical tools, and training for the glass industry.
The Guardian Glass Resource Hub is a digital platform that offers technical information on glass, as well as engineering, analytical and specification tools, marketing resources and interactive training – all in one place.
The Resource Hub includes a comprehensive technical library that allows self-service on technical enquiries.
Technical information and notes are available on a wide range of topics such as glass fundamentals, thermal stress management, bent glass, understanding condensation on glass, as well as specialty applications, interior glass and architectural glazing.
Users also have access to Guardian Glass Analytics, a comprehensive suite of engineering and analytical tools that help demonstrate the benefits of high performance glass in building facades.
These tools include:
- Performance Calculator for modelling thermal and optical properties of glass substrates, coatings and interlayers.
- Glass Visualiser for evaluating the aesthetic properties of glass make-ups.
- Acoustic Assistant for estimating the acoustic performance of many types of glass make-ups.
In the Specification Tools section, the Product Selector allows users to quickly find the most suitable Guardian Glass product for their project.
In addition, Guardian Glass for BIM (Building Information Modelling) is an Autodesk Revit plug-in that works within the Revit workflow to guide selection and specification of Guardian Glass products.
This powerful application analyses key performance metrics (thermal, passive solar heat gain, natural daylight) for all glass types.
The Resource Hub also includes the Training Centre, a platform with a variety of online interactive training tools and resources, including video-based learning sessions, webinars and an in-person training booking system.
Steven Scrivens, Global Head of Digital Platforms at Guardian Industries, said: "We want to provide our customers and the wider glass community, including those who specify glass in buildings, with 24/7 access to the tools and technical information they need to make faster, better and more informed decisions about glass and its use in building projects.
“By providing a combination of technical information, analytical tools, marketing and training resources, the Resource Hub is a very powerful, valuable, self-service platform."
