January 4, 2010

Today is scheduled as the official opening of the Burj Dubai in the United Arab Emirates - the world's tallest building at 800 meters or 2,650 feet high. The building features more than 2 million square feet of Guardian Solar Silver 20 and Guardian ClimaGuard NLT low-E.

"We're pleased to have our glass on this prestigious, record-breaking project," says Guardian Glass Group president Russ Ebeid. "Guardian was able to meet the exacting specifications of the architect and builder."

The construction and completion of the tower has garnered much press around the world.
