Guardian offers a new improved ClimaGuard® A+, a thermal insulating glass meeting the highest performance and quality standards that is designed to exceed your expectations on transparency and solar heat gain. The new and improved Low E glass maintains the same thermal performance with an increased level of solar heat gain. Using ClimaGuard A+ should not only have a positive effect on your heating costs, it may also help improve levels of comfort in your home.
ClimaGuard® A+ is specifically designed to satisfy all national and local building regulations through out the UK and Ireland, achieving the highest window energy rating performance and U value compliance.
By combining excellent thermal insulation with a high level of solar heat gain, ClimaGuard® A+ may help to reduce heating costs during winter months. Through the efficient utilisation of free solar energy, ClimaGuard® A+ allows solar heat to pass through the glazing which is then retained within the building by the low emissivity coated glass.
ClimaGuard® A+ is a single product, soft coat Low E glass, which uses magnetron sputtered technology to produce a durable, processor friendly coated glass. The coating must be removed from the perimeter, via edge deletion before being manufactured into hermetically sealed insulated glass units. As a single product, ClimaGuard® A+ can be used either in its annealed form or it can be heat treated for use in safety glazing, which is a key requirement of Building Regulations.

Super Spacer® Premium is a flexible, silicone foam spacer product that provides the maximum in perimeter insulation for sealed glazing units. Desiccant-filled with pre-applied side adhesive, the structural foam spacer significantly simplifies insulating glass (IG) production.
Super Spacer is a dual seal insulating glass spacer system that uses a high-performance acrylic adhesive for its structural seal and is backed with a proprietary multi-layer moisture vapour seal.
Featuring a vapour barrier backing, the spacer must be used in combination with conventional IG sealants. For a list of verified sealants, please reference IG sealants Technical Bulletin RD0018.
Super Spacer Premium is available in Grey, White and Black.
