Guardian Glass to share its vision of the future at BAU 2019
Bertrange, Luxembourg, December 11, 2018 – Guardian Glass will delight visitors to it stand at BAU 2019 with a demonstration of the endless possibilities of glass – for today tomorrow and beyond – to a world in which glass will play an even greater role in our lives. BAU, the world’s leading trade fair for architecture, materials and systems, opens its doors in Munich, Germany, 14-19 January 2019.
The endless possibilities of glass are encapsulated in the design of the Guardian Glass stand (Hall C3, stand 308), where concentric rings reveal the current and future possibilities of glass. Architects and cladders can visualise what is possible with glass today and in the future, and how Guardian Glass can help realise their visions, as well as how future challenges that humans will face could be overcome.
Starting from the outside of the stand, Guardian Glass products are presented as interactive displays, including Guardian Clarity™ anti-reflective glass and Guardian SunGuard® coated solar control glass for windows and building façades. These products push the boundaries of what is possible in structural glass, providing the optimum balance between how the glass performs and how it looks. Also on display is Guardian Dielectric Mirror, an advanced glass coating technology for dual-function mirror/TV applications, framed TVs, hidden commercial displays and other interior designs.
Venturing deeper into the stand, visitors can discover some of Guardian’s groundbreaking products of tomorrow, including its new dynamic shading solution which will set the scene to present Guardian Glass’ vision for the future of glass. Unlike any other shading product currently available, this patented solution is a reliable and cost-effective integrated shade for windows and doors, which will initially be available in a fully integrated ‘blackout’ version (expected in late 2019), followed by privacy and solar glare control versions. The shade, activated in seconds, allows users to control the glass by providing them with solar and glare control capabilities at the push of a button or via an app.
