With 64 years of experience, Polar Seal is a family owned and operated residential window manufacturer and installer, serving Michigan and Northern Indiana.Polar Seal provides windows for double-hung, sliding, bay and bow, casement, replacement, and new construction applications, as well as patio doors at its 78,000-square-foot facility.
Jason Blyveis, general manager of Polar Seal and grandson of founder Maurice Blyveis, said his company has been evaluating dynamic glass options to add to their product line. “Suntuitive glass by Pleotint provides the benefit of flexible comfort, but what makes it unique is that it tints in response to heat generated from sunlight and doesn’t need to be wired into a home’s electrical system,” he said. “Collaborating with a fellow Michigan-based company is an added benefit.”
“The mainstream energy-efficient glass options of today focus on either blocking solar heat gain or allowing it in,” he added. “While people in our part of the country understand and value solar heat gain in winter, they don’t want it in summer. Suntuitive glass opens the door for conversation about addressing both needs.”
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.
