What should I know about Solar Smartglass?
Solar SmartGlass can be manually or automatically “tuned” to precisely control the amount of light, glare and heat passing through. Glass facades using patented SPD light-control technology reduce the need for air conditioning during the summer months and heating during winter. The ability to instantly switch the glass to maximize daylight when it’s really needed and to provide controllable solar shading during peak light conditions is unique.
These products foster innovative building design opportunities never before available while offering unprecedented environmental benefits and protection to building inhabitants.
Where can I use Smartglass?
SmartGlass is currently used in partition screens, windows, roof-lights and doors, projection screens, security & teller screens but as architects and designers explore the boundaries and turn conventional perspectives of glass on their head it is expected that the markets will continue to grow and expand into new and innovative uses.
