Product Options

ExtraClear:

ExtraClear float glass is Guardian's standard clear float glass offering, unlike most other clear float glass Guardian's ExtraClear has a reduced iron content, this product sits half way between normal clear float and Low Iron glass and provides a better level of clarity with less discolouration (blue/green appearance) when viewed from the cut edge of the glass.

UltraClear:

Low Iron float glass which has an almost crystal like appearance, the edge detail is almost completely clear with little to no blue/green discolouration.
