New Guardian Website Offers Architectural Tools and Resources
Guardian Industries has updated its website,, offering improved organization and usability, as well as enhanced tools and resources, according to the company. Some of the features include improved project search functionality, a new product appearance selector, new green building and LEED information, as well as new performance comparison calculators.

In addition, the company has reconfigured its web-based search tool with a map-based feature. Similar to its smartphone glass app, this tool allows users to find and explore projects based on a specific location. For example, users can zoom in on a specific location and then bring up a photo and some highlighted project information associated with the pin on the map. Users simply click on the project of interest to bring up detailed information. The database can also be searched in a more traditional manor. Here, users can select from ten different attributes, such as the type of building, product used, as well as fabricators or glaziers who worked on the project.
