Glass manufacturer launches sustainability calculator
Architects and designers can efficiently evaluate environmental performance attributes of Guardian glass products with the new Guardian Sustainability Calculator.
The digital program helps users see how Guardian glazing make-ups can help a project earn certification from green building rating systems such as LEED, the Living Building Challenge and the WELL Building Standard, according to a press release.
“The Guardian Sustainability Calculator gives you the power to select Guardian SunGuard or InGlass architectural glass products, evaluate them and document their contribution potential,” said Brian Schulz, product manager, Guardian Glass North America. “The program generates a comprehensive report on a range of rating systems, helps architects and designers see what’s possible and aids in the specification process.”
The newest component of Guardian Glass Analytics for North America, the sustainability calculator joins the performance calculator, building energy calculator, BIM Generator and the Glass Visualizer.
The tools provide comprehensive engineering and analytical modeling and custom glass content that demonstrate the advantages of high performance glass in building facades, the company said.
