Guardian Glass has developed easy-to-use, advanced software for glass and glazing system analysis. Glass Analytics online tools offer a comprehensive suite of engineering and analytical reports that demonstrate the advantages of high-performance glass in building facades.

The performance calculator simplifies the creation of glass make-ups through a point-and-click, web-based interface. Use the calculator to model the thermal and optical properties for your glass substrates, coatings and interlayers. Then easily create client-ready reports comparing glass options.
The Guardian Glass visualizer dynamically generates photo-realistic images of both exterior and interior glazing views. Evaluate the aesthetic properties of virtually any glass makeup - just choose the glass you want to visualize, select the building and perspective that suits you, and see how different sky conditions affect the appearance of the glass.
The Building Information Modeling (BIM) generator tool can create bespoke BIM objects for your specific product formulations. This allows for more detailed and accurate appearance and performance details across your projects, with no additional work required.
The Guardian acoustic assistant is a tool to estimate acoustic performance of different types of glazing. User's have the option to estimate the acoutic performance of glazing, find glazing solutions for an acoustic performance, or directly access/view the acoustic performance table.
The building energy calculator uses the makeups created in the performance calculator to compare energy cost, consumption and financial payback information. This schematic design tool makes calculations based on hourly simulations of glazing options, building parameters and project location. The Building Energy Calculator can be used to compare annual energy costs for a variety of climate zones.
Evaluate environmental performance attributes of Guardian Glass products with the Guardian Sustainability Calculator. This easy-to-use digital program helps users see how Guardian glazing makeups can help a project earn certification from green building rating systems such as LEED®, the Living Building Challenge and the WELL Building Standard.
