BIPV and dynamic glass
Guardian SunGuard PVGU
Guardian Industries will show its Guardian SunGuard PVGU, powered by Pythagoras, that combines Pythagoras Solar Photovoltaic Glass Unit technology with SunGuard advanced architectural glass to create a building-integrated photovoltaic product. The glass can replace standard vision and spandrel glass or skylights to convert direct sunlight into energy, according to the exhibitor. Additionally, the company will show the new Guardian SunGuard EC (electrochromic) product that incorporates Soladigm dynamic glass technology into its SunGuard product line. Soladigm dynamic glass uses electrochromic technology to switch from clear to tinted on demand, and enables control of building heat and glare while providing greater comfort, uninterrupted views and natural daylight, Guardian reports. In addition to its solar and dynamic glass products, Guardian will promote new aspects of its InGlass interior glass line, including InGlass Visualizer, an online tool that allows users to see how integrating different types of glass can transform the visual impact of a space.
