Sustainability Calculator

Architects and designers can now efficiently evaluate Guardian glazing product compliance with green rating systems with the Guardian Sustainability Calculator. The easy-to-use digital program shows how well Guardian glazing make-ups help a project earn certification from rating systems such as LEED, the Living Building Challenge and the WELL Building Standard. To see how standard product make-ups can help your project, begin by entering basic project details and select the “Add Product” button. Then identify the sustainability program(s) that interest you and click “Evaluate.”

The program generates a comprehensive report on a range of rating systems and is the latest component of Guardian Glass Analytics , which also includes the Performance Calculator, Building Energy Calculator, BIM Generator and the Glass Visualizer. Together, these industry-leading tools provide comprehensive engineering, analytical modeling and custom glass content that demonstrate the advantages of high-performance glass in building facades.
