WHAT: Integrated Window and Lighting Systems Can Help Meet Challenging New Building Codes, a continuing education course presented by Dr. Sanders and Dr. Hakkarainen examines how dynamic fenestration – in concert with proper window size and location, interior furniture layout, and electric lighting – can provide flexibility for changing conditions in a building during the day and help architects overcome challenges created by potential conflicts in high-performance building standards such as ASHRAE 189.1-2009, LEED and other emerging minimum energy codes.
SageGlass® advanced dynamic glass, a product of Saint-Gobain, will be exhibited in large form geometric shapes at the SAGE booth #3663. The demonstrations will feature SageGlass’ unique ability to deliver energy savings in form factors that meet architects’ design needs. SageGlass is available in many geometric shapes including traditional squares and rectangles as well as trapezoids, parallelograms and triangles.
An integrated demo featuring SageGlass and Lutron will be on display at the Lutron booth #2431 at the AIA show.
SageGlass has also released a new white paper summarizing the many causes of UV fading and illustrates the relative fading protection performance of SageGlass versus standard glazing products. Click here to download the white paper.

SageGlass®, a product of Saint-Gobain, is advanced dynamic glass that can be electronically tinted or cleared to optimize daylight and improve the human experience in buildings. SageGlass manages the sunlight and heat that enter a building, significantly reducing energy consumption while improving people’s comfort and well-being. It can reduce a building’s cooling load by 20% and HVAC requirements up to 30%. It is a smarter, more elegant solution than conventional sun controls such as mechanical window shades, blinds and louvers. With SageGlass you can control sunlight and glare without shades or blinds while maintaining the view and connection to the outdoors. SageGlass is manufactured in Faribault, MN, in the heart of “the Silicon Valley of the window industry,” and is a wholly owned subsidiary of Saint-Gobain of Paris, the world’s largest building materials company.
