I could not be more thrilled to have Tristar onboard as our fabricator in the Southwest.” said Chris Ketchum Vice President Sales for RavenBrick. “They are a forward-thinking company that sells value-added technologies and have a loyal customer base who will jump all over our energy saving dynamic window system.”RavenBrick is currently building their automated manufacturing line in Denver capable of producing 400,000 square feet of RavenWindow filters per month.Product will start to become available in the first quarter of 2014.
“As energy codes become more stringent, energy costs continue to escalate and current technologies reach their technical limits there is no question that dynamic glass products will be in vogue. If you review the features and benefits of the two dynamic glass products available; i.e. Electrochromic and Thermochromic, Thermochromic is the clear choice from a return on investment and performance standpoint. This is why TriStar Glass Products has decided to Team with Ravenbrick relative to this most exciting and innovative product line.” Said Greg Oehlers, Architectural Sales Manager at Tristar Glass.
Founded in 2006, RavenBrick is a Denver-based materials science company that has developed patented and patents-pending thermochromic filter technology to manage solar heat gain in windows. As buildings are responsible for 40% of the energy used in North America, the ability to manage solar heat gain in windows, the area of the biggest waste of heating and air conditioning, is essential to upgrading the building's thermal performance in a cost effective way.
