Intelligent Glass Systems Receive Praise at Ecobuild

Essex Safety Glass (ESG Ltd) certainly put a new spin on the term ‘responsive architecture’ at EcoBuild this year, with visitors flocking to the stand to see and feel for themselves the digitally sensitive glass products on display.

Unveiling ESG Solarchromic™ Climate Control Glass and ESG Thermic™ Heatable Glass for the first time was a smart move for the leading technical glass manufacturer, as visitors were left inspired by ESG’s Eco Intelligent Home.    

In fact, ESG is already seeing a surge in enquiries from those looking for highly practical, responsive, stylish, and most importantly, environmentally friendly glass solutions.

Scott Sinden, Managing Director of ESG, comments:

“We experienced a great deal of interest in our ESG Solarchromic™ Climate Control Glass, whivh has the ability to minimise solar heat gain during summer months yet maximise it during the winter. With its electronically controllable tint, ESG’s Solarchromic™ Climate Control Glass not only reduces a building’s energy consumption, it is also an attractive design feature for any window, conservatory, velux or rooflight. Available in manual or automatic control, ESG Solarchromic™ panels can be controlled individually or as a multiple panel system.”

“Visitors were particularly interested in our newly introduced ESG Thermic™ Heatable Glass, which is capable of bringing effective and controlled room temperatures up to 40°C, discarding the need for unsightly radiators with its innovative, invisible space saving properties.”


Available in sizing up to 1,800mm x 3,500mm, ESG Switchable™ LCD Privacy Glass proved to be particularly appealing to specifiers looking to use the glass as a practical and elegant design feature.


This was the first time a company had showcased intelligent glass products in actual applications which included an advanced privacy glass sliding and folding door system, a low voltage shower enclosure with conductive fittings and a front projection switchable window.

Similarly, the ESG Solarchromic™ Climate Control Glass attracted significant attention, with its ability to minimise solar heat gain during summer months yet maximise it during the winter.


Echoing the increasing demand for intelligent products that adapt to their surroundings, Scott Sinden adds:

“There has never been a more appropriate time to introduce these intelligent products, especially given the increased demand for energy efficient buildings that will only intensify as we near the requirement for all new homes to be zero carbon from 2016.”


ESG will also be exhibiting at Grand Designs Live at Excel, London from 4th – 12th May 2013 where visitors will have the opportunity to experience the range at first hand.
