Pleotint Signs Distribution Agreement with Prelco

Pleotint, LLC, has announced a distribution agreement with Prelco, Inc., Reviere-du-Loup, Quebec, Canada, enabling Prelco to incorporate Pleotint’s Suntuitive™ interlayer technology into its proprietary Prel-Shade thermochromic window offering.

Suntuitive interlayer by Pleotint features the glass industry’s most advanced sun-sensing, adaptive-tinting technology.The agreement grants Prelco exclusive rights to market Prel-Shade windows with Suntuitive interlayer technology in eastern Canada, including Quebec, Ontario, and the Maritime provinces.

Paul Ogburn, vice president of Pleotint, said, “Our agreement with Prelco provides an opportunity to expand our distribution network while offering an ideal glazing solution for office buildings, schools, restaurants, and residential applications throughout eastern Canada.”

Suntuitive interlayer by Pleotint is North America’s first commercially available window interlayer for laminated glass that gradually darkens in response to rising temperatures caused by direct sunlight, then cools as the sun moves across the sky, returning to a clear, neutral state in cloudy or dark environmental conditions.

“The Canadian construction market has seen rising demand for heat and glare control products,” says Bill Marchitello, Canadian sales director for Prelco. “Prel-Shade is an energy-efficient, easy-to-install alternative to other glazing products. The thermochromic glass technology offers a clear, unobstructed view that you can’t achieve with blinds or dark tints.”

The Suntuitive interlayer requires no mechanical intervention, which effectively eliminates the threat of failure caused by faulty wiring, poor electrical connections, broken circuits or temperamental computer systems. Installation of windows with Suntuitive interlayer is the same as other laminated IGUs.
