| Contemporary architectural transparency (understood as the optical property of the material) is constantly being redefined and, over the last decade, new design trends have developed related to transparent façades in architecture.
| The integration of smart glazing and adaptive façade in buildings can lead to large performance improvements and added functionality compared to conventional static building envelope systems.
| Windows have always been at the intersection of various technologies and architectural processes that evolved in parallel and often intertwined.
| There have several type smart glass, what is the difference for different type? How can you know that and choose right?
| Glass is enhanced with added functions to form an integral part of the building network. We are still in the early stages of development.
| At the simple push of a button, this glass can fade from light to dark - or clear to opaque - and back again.
| Energy regulations in the construction industry are getting harsher, restricting the amount of glass that we can install in a façade.
Is Greater Façade Sustainability Achieved Through New Material Innovation or Innovations In Façade Management?
| A More Sustainable Approach for Future Façades
| Electronically tintable glass can offer a solution which avoids having to trade off daylight and views with energy performance and occupant comfort, allowing more glass to be used without energy penalty and without causing thermal or visual…
Unique 279 sqm (3,000 sq) ft façade employs electrochromic solution comprising SageGlass® and SentryGlas® in perfect collaboration
| SentryGlas® ionoplast interlayers have played an important role in a unique curved glass curtain wall at the Butler County Health Care Center in David City, Nebraska.
| Thanks to on-going research and development efforts glass products can take on ever new functions.
| Glass has been serving mankind for 5,000 years already, but new advances in technology mean it could become the front line in the war against energy costs and carbon emissions.
