Aldora Achieves Guardian SunGuard Certification at Newport News Facility

Aldora announced that its Newport News facility has achieved Guardian SunGuard Certification. This certification will allow Aldora to continue to provide high-quality coated low-e insulated glass.

The benefits of the certification

With the Guardian SunGuard Certification, Aldora now has access to a range of resources provided by Guardian Glass, including its technical support and design tools. These tools also include support with environmental performance documentation, project wind load and thermal stress analysis, Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs), Health Product Declarations (HPDs) and sustainability evaluations.

The Newport News location opened in February 2023 and serves a 150-mile radius, including Richmond, Roanoke, Baltimore, Washington D.C., Raleigh and Durham. With a fast turnaround time and local service, Aldora can now deliver Guardian low-e glass in a reduced lead time.

The reduced lead times for low-e insulated glass products provide several benefits to Aldora's customers. It enables them to complete their projects faster, reducing downtime and minimizing disruption. It also allows them to respond faster to project requirement changes, such as unexpected design modifications or delays. Lastly, it enables them to save on project delay costs, such as labor and equipment.

What Aldora says

“Our customers achieve a competitive advantage with products fabricated in a Guardian SunGuard local certified facility,” says Sean Ryan, VP of operations. “This certification is a testament to our commitment to provide our customers with the highest quality products and services. And by delivering low-e insulated glass in a short lead time, customers can continue to rely on us for all their glass and aluminum needs.”
