Pleotint, LLC, has announced a distribution partnership with Tam Skylights, enabling the Seattle–based company to offer Suntuitive glass with its skylight solutions for commercial and residential projects in the Pacific Northwest.

Established in 1980, Tam Skylights is a family-owned company that manufacturers high quality skylights out of its 50,000-square-foot manufacturing facility.Irwin Tam, president of Tam Skylights, said his company was evaluating new technologies to help control the constant problem of solar heat gain in commercial and residential buildings, but chose Suntuitive glass because it’s simple and offers advanced performance.“Suntuitive glass is the first dynamic glass that is a game changer in our industry,” Tam explained. “When used in combination with self-tinting Suntuitive glass, our skylights will be able to achieve strict requirements for solar heat gain, visible light, and insulating performance in increasingly demanding building codes such as the California Energy Commission’s Title 24 Building Standards.“Suntuitive glass also is priced competitively with typical high-performance solar control glass, but offers higher transmittance of visible light and eliminates the needs for shades to be installed under the skylight.Typically, shades trap heat under a skylight on hot days, which will bake the frames and cause warping and seal failures. Suntuitive glass provides natural light and comfort without creating that risk.”

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.
