Guardian Displays High-Endurance Glass at World Workplace Conference
October 27, 2011

Guardian Industries is exhibiting at the International Facility Management Association (IFMA) World Workplace Conference and Expo this week in Phoenix. The event, which runs October 26-28 at the Phoenix Convention Center, is a conference designed for facility management and related professions.

Guardian is promoting its DiamondGuard high-endurance glass at the event, which is designed to resist scratching and also be highly transparent. Its interior applications include doors, wall panels, partitions, store fixtures, display cases, tabletops, cabinets, shelving, furniture and mirrors, according to company officials.
The glass is fused with the strength of carbon, according to Guardian, giving it an extremely low coefficient of friction to protect it from scratching, smudging and hazing. The company also utilizes a patented vacuum deposition process to enhance its scratch resistance—a process developed in response to the requests of facilities managers for a more durable glass product.

“Facility managers need high-quality durable products that last,” says Diane Turnwall, Guardian Interiors market segment director. “DiamondGuard stands up to everyday contact with items such as keys, jewelry, silverware, briefcases and handbags. Its performance in the real world redefines the possibilities for glass.”

DiamondGuard is part of the new Guardian InGlass brand.
