Guardian Glass will install its new jumbo coater at its Carleton, Michigan glass manufacturing complex. 

“Architects are increasingly designing projects with larger glass sizes to deliver desired aesthetics with more expansive views and higher daylight penetration,” says Rick Zoulek, vice president - Americas, Guardian Glass. 

According to Guardian, the jumbo coater will allow the company to supply larger sheets of coated glass to its customers for fabrication; reduce lead times; and increase the company’s product offerings.

“We’re … excited to move forward on this project that will increase our ability to serve the glass and building industries, while augmenting our existing Carleton facilities,” says Gerry Hool, Carleton plant manager, Guardian Glass. “By co-locating the jumbo coater with our only U.S. plant with two float glass lines, we will support Guardian customers by increasing product and service offerings and innovating faster.”
