It is the third annual competition the online product magazine has sponsored, and we are delighted to be selected as an award recipient for a second consecutive year by Green Thinker Network readers.Green Thinker Network features green building products, green architects, LEED® consultants and other service providers who utilize innovative building practices in order to promote a greener tomorrow.The Sustainability Award seeks out the best sustainable products in the market, ultimately striving to build awareness of alternative methods and products for green construction. Judging for the sustainable products competition is based on: post-consumer content, recycled content, third party certifications, LEED points, life cycle, energy efficiency studies and renewable energy production and usage.
Of all the nominations, just 11 products were honored with a Sustainability 2013 Award; SageGlass topping the category for Windows & Doors. SageGlass is ideal for buildings where sustainability and user comfort is the goal. It controls the sunlight and heat that enter a building, providing occupants with great thermal efficiency. It also means buildings can use smaller, more efficient HVAC systems, dramatically reducing energy consumption.
Dynamic glass is gaining mass-market awareness, no longer solely identified by building trade professionals and architects. It is an exciting time at SAGE. At our new high-volume manufacturing facility we are now able to produce our dynamic glass in larger sizes and higher quantities, thus opening new markets and opportunities.
