Guardian’s Rostov plant in Russia has launched a glass with a multifunction coating.

Its SunGuard and ClimaGuard Solar products allow you to save heat in winter and by passing visible light, reflect the sun in summer, they are most effective in sharply continental climate.

Guardian’s Vice President of Europe Lajos Shapi spoke about the project in the Guardian Industries Krasnosulinskaya industrial park, and discussed the competitive advantages of the company, emphasising its energy efficient products.

During the meeting Guardian launched an initiative to analyse the validity of the current Russian thermal resistance of windows standards, which have not changed since 1998.

Guardian, in partnership with the Ministry of Construction and Housing of the Russian Federation and Russia's leading industry players, has offered to research energy-saving characteristics and profiles made of glass.

According to Guardian, Russian demand for modern windows in new construction is 14.9 million m2 per year, and the replacement of the existing stock of windows - plus another 24.7 million m2 per year to replace the existing stock of windows.

Widespread use of glass panes with high energy-saving qualities could help reduce heat loss and create an energy efficient building envelope.
