Guardian Glass UK introduces ClimaGuard DS, an advanced soft coat Low E glass, to the market.

Historically, hard coat Low E glass has been known to have a slight brown colour distortion with an element of haze when viewed from particular angles, as the sun’s light catches the coated surface.

Guardian’s ClimaGuard DS is an offline, magnetron sputter-coated Low E glass, which offers similar attributes to hard coat Low E alternatives, without the brown colour distortion or issue relating to haze.

Unlike other soft coat Low E glass options, ClimaGuard DS can be treated much more like a hard coat glass.

It doesn’t require edge deletion (the process of removing a perimeter of the coating from the glass surface before manufacturing into an insulting glass unit) and has a far more robust coating, allowing it to be processed and manufactured like hard coat glass.
