Best of Whats New is the ultimate Popular Science accolade, representing a years worth of work evaluating thousands of products, says Mark Jannot, editor of Popular Science. These awards honor innovations that not only influence the way we live today, but that change the way we think about the future.Thermique is a scientific breakthrough in radiant heating.The technology transforms ordinary glass into an efficient, elegant heat source. This is accomplished through the use of a proprietary conductive coating applied to the glass during fabrication. A specially designed controller supplies an electric current to the coating, which heats the glass with precise control. Heated glass towel warmers are among the first commercial products to take advantage of Thermique technology, designed exclusively by Engineered Glass Products. In addition to towel warmers, Thermique technology is being applied to architectural windows, oven ranges, warm food display cases, and more.
Heated glass may be a brand new concept right now, but it wont be long before Thermique technology is a commonplace and indispensable part in your everyday life, says Mike Hobbs, CEO of Engineered Glass Products. Glass products add beauty and style to any kitchen, bathroom, office, or restaurant. With Thermique, weve taken all the advantages of ordinary glass and added a scientific usefulness that is vastly superior to competing technologies.
All Thermique components are UL® Recognized, and the towel warmers and architectural windows are UL Approved. Engineered Glass Products is actively searching for business partners to help develop new uses for Thermique technology and bring them to market.
We are honored to be recognized by Popular Science for our ThermiqueTM heated glass technology. Our researchers are true pioneers. Not only have they developed a groundbreaking technology, but they have transformed it into a group of exceptional home products for consumers, says Hobbs.
Each year, the editors of Popular Science review thousands of products in search of breakthrough products and technologies that represent a significant leap in their categories.
