The Guardian Performance Calculator, Building Energy Calculator, Sustainability Calculator, Glass Visualizer and Acoustic Assistant tools (collectively known as "Glass Analytics") were developed by Guardian Glass, LLC ("Guardian") for use by its sales, technical staff, and channel partners to evaluate and compare various aspects of glass and glazing system performance; and Guardian grants user a limited license to use these Glass Analytics tools only for such purposes.

Spectral data for products manufactured by Guardian reflect nominal values derived from typical production samples or CE Initial Type Testing and subject to variations due to manufacturing and calculation tolerances. Spectral data for products not manufactured by Guardian were derived from the LBNL International Glazing Database and have not been independently verified by Guardian. Guardian recommends a full-size mock-up be approved.

The values provided herein are generated according to established engineering practices and applicable calculation standards. Many factors may affect glazing characteristics, including glass size, building orientation, shading, wind speed, type of installation, production process and others. The applicability and results of the analysis are directly related to user inputs and any changes in actual conditions can have a significant effect on the results. It is the responsibility of the users of the analysis to ensure that the intended application is appropriate and complies with all relevant laws, regulations, standards, codes of practices, processing guidelines and other requirements. Guardian makes no guarantee that any glazing modeled herein is available from Guardian or any other manufacturer. The user has the responsibility to check with the manufacturer regarding availability of any glass type or make-up.
