The family owned company specializes in the manufacture and installation of custom windows and doors, and serves Cincinnati; Chicago; Dayton, Ohio; and Lexington and Louisville, Kentucky.
Mike Gilkey, president of Gilkey, said his company explored dynamic glass options due to customer demand, and selected Suntuitive glass for multiple reasons. “Suntuitive glass is the perfect solution for our customers’ needs by counteracting the sun’s heat and glare when needed, but also preserving daylighting and views all day long,” he said. “The unique glass is an easy-to-use, cost-efficient product compared to other options, and doesn’t need to be wired or controlled electrically.”
When paired with low-emissivity glass in an insulating glass unit, Suntuitive glass can produce visible light transmittance of as high as 60 percent in a clear state, solar heat gain coefficients of as low as 0.11 in a darkened state, and reduce heating-, cooling-, and lighting-related energy costs.
