As a sponsor of the McGraw-Hill's Continuing Education Center, Guardian is reaching the more than 20,000 architects and design professionals taking courses each year.
In addition to their home at SunGuardGlass.com, the company’s American Institute of Architects approved courses are accessible through all of McGraw-Hill’s construction websites, including archrecord.com, enr.com and greensourcemag.com.
Currently, Guardian features three courses and four co-sponsored programs through the Continuing Education Center: Principles of Glass Selection for Facades: From Rendering to Reality In this newest course, members will see some of the current choices in glass commonly available to architects for building facades, looking at features, attributes, and characteristics of these various choices from both a visual and performance standpoint. LEED and High-Performance Glass Members will review the current LEED® system, including the version 3 updates and the specifics of how glass and glazing selections can contribute to acquiring credit in improved energy performance, material use, indoor environmental quality, innovation, and regional priorities. The Evolution of Glass and High Performance Coatings This course provides the basics of glass and its manufacturing process, discussing types of low-E technologies available in the market and relevant energy terms, while showing multiple projects to discuss current trends in usage, application and important design considerations.

Guardian’s continuing education catalog is just one part of a growing toolset. Guardian’s Building Energy Calculator and SunGuard mobile app, both launched in 2011, are two more examples of how Guardian gives architects and designers user-friendly resources to understand and specify commercial glass.
