About Guardian 275® - Translucent Panel Skylights & Curtainwall
Guardian 275® - Translucent Panel Skylights & Curtainwall
Lightweight Guardian 275® Translucent Panel Skylights and Curtainwall provide glare-free natural light while reducing heat loss and stabilizing HVAC loads. Guardian 275® systems are available with a variety of insulation options to meet your project’s specific requirements, and their lightweight sandwich panel design, featuring an aluminum grid core and reinforced fiberglass skin, saves money by lowering total skylight weight (which in turn reduces structural requirements for most roof designs). The design of Guardian 275® Translucent Panels also gives them one of the highest strength-to-weight ratios available for daylighting applications.
Protection from the elements starts with the most advanced polyester resin package ever developed for commercial daylighting. Major Industries utilizes Ultimate Series™ technology - a unique blend of polymers, UV inhibitors, color stabilizers, and a permanent fiberbloom erosion veil that establishes a new benchmark for long-term performance. Water management is designed into all Guardian 275® skylights and curtainwall systems and features high-performance sealants and integral condensation and weeping systems.
