Global Security Glazing introduces ACCESSGARD security glazing

Security Glazing (Global), a Consolidated Glass Holdings (CGH) company, launched ACCESSGARD™ security glazing. “At ground level, most buildings are using a lot of glass for offices, entranceways, and doors,” said Ben Baum, vice president of security sales at CGH. “Unfortunately, glass also is seen as a weakness in terms of building security, as it’s often targeted as an access point in forced-entry scenarios. Global developed ACCESSGARD security glazing to delay entry or prevent it altogether. It’s an affordable product in commercial office buildings, public and government buildings, sports complexes, houses of worship, and manufacturing facilities.”

Guide to Green Building – Product of the Week

TGI®-Spacer M is a warm edge plastic hybrid stainless steel spacer which improves thermal performance and condensation resistance of an insulating glass unit. It also provides structural performance and IG seal durability. It allows for more glazing without taking an energy, comfort or indoor air quality penalty. 6 color choices are available, and can be used in bent glass and radius shapes. It reduces the overall fenestration u-value, which increases the energy efficiency for the lifecycle of the building. It received the Cradle to Cradle Institute’s Platinum Level Material Health Certificate. Find out more about how to specify at www.spectheedge.com
