Guardian Glass helps SABIC Home of Innovation achieve zero net energy balance
The SuperNeutral family of coated solar control glass products from Guardian Glass offers the flexibility to create the ideal balance between light transmission and solar heat gain in a wide range of applications
Guardian Glass supplied high performance coated solar control glass to glaze the Demonstration Home at the SABIC Home of Innovation – the first single-family home in the Middle East to earn Platinum certification from the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) rating system.
Located in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, the 800-square-metre demonstration home is designed and built to generate as much electricity as it consumes over a 12-month period, to achieve a zero net energy balance. The home showcases a full range of the latest commercially available technologies that yield net zero energy use, water conservation and environmentally responsible building materials and techniques to pave the way forward for more sustainable home building around the world.
Guardian SunGuard SuperNeutral 30 double silver coated solar control glass, used in all the windows and some doors of the Demonstration Home, helped the building achieve a zero net energy balance.
Guardian SunGuard SuperNeutral 30 helps to promote environmental sustainability by reducing shipping time for projects based in the Middle East.
