Glass Insulates Like a Wall

The first application of Guardian Vacuum IG is a retrofit at Sherzer Hall at Eastern Michigan University, Ypsilanti. The planning and design team have reported the installation has had an immediate impact.

Using a vacuum between two panes of glass that prevents heat from escaping to the outside, Guardian Vacuum IG provides thermal insulation with an R-value of up to 12 for 8-millimeter thickness. Because Guardian Vacuum IG uses tempered glass, the product is suitable for use in commercial buildings. Performance is enhanced by pairing Guardian Vacuum IG with Guardian SunGuard coated glass to create a hybrid, low-E glass product that delivers the light transmission, reflectivity and color needed for new construction and retrofits. In addition, noise reduction exceeds that of a typical insulating glass unit.
