Sun-activated, SolarSmart Glass is a fully automatic, self-tinting glass that continuously adapts to the sun and changing environmental conditions.
SolarSmart Glass has a "Suntuitive" interlayer that darkens in response to bright sun, and lightens as the sun moves away, dynamically blocking heat, sun and glare as needed. SolarSmart does not require wires, electricity or controls for operation, because it is exclusively controlled by the warmth of the sun.
SolarSmart is sold as an insulated glass unit and is perfect for windows, Doors, curtainwalls, skylights & atria.
Windows receive different amounts of solar energy throughout the day, month & year, due to changing angles and position of the sun. As the sun strikes and heats the
glass, Solar Smart automatically and proportionately tints and darkens to maximize user comfort. It’s as reliable as the
sunrise and sunset, always adapting to the
Solar Smart is a self-tinting, high performance glass that darkens in the presence of direct
sunlight to block heat, glare and damaging ultraviolet light. The proprietary Suntuitive™
interlayer responds to the heat & warmth of the sun. Additionally, the view is always preserved even in the darkest state.
Solar Smart reduces the need for blinds and drapes, and will significantly cut the cooling & lighting costs of office buildings,
schools and homes. In fact, studies indicate that buildings with Solar Smart can save up to
22% of installed equipment costs, supporting a quick return on investment.
There are many benefits of using Solar Smart glass. From energy saving aspects to occupants comfort. This innovative product helps to increase safety within buildings as well.
Solar smart can lower costs associated with air conditioning, artificial lightening and heating/air- conditioning. The greatest energy savings appear during peak energy consumption periods when energy costs are highest. This saves money and is environmentally friendly. Total costs could be decreased up to 70 % ! Self-Tinting interlayer can help to manage a building’s changing needs for passive solar gain, solar control and natural daylight transmittance.
It increases occupants comfort by keeping a consistent heat level within the building and does not limit outdoor views. This means we can minimise the need for blinds and shades. Solar smart glass will gradually darken down for you. This will balance the intensity of incoming light and substantially decrease the heat coming in through your windows
Solar smart glass is a laminated glass that enhances building security. It is an excellent insulation material that reduces outside noise. It also blocks UV light and reduces the absorbed heat and light both of which are significant causes of furniture and carpet fading.
No Wires, Electronics or Control Systems
Unlike most other dynamic glass, SolarSmart is 100% solar activated, powered and controlled, requiring no external power or user involvement. This dramatically simplifies installation, and maximizes potential energy savings
SolarSmart has passed NREL’s stringent durability & exposure tests, and meets ASTM E2141-06 standards for long term,maintenance-free performance. SolarSmart is a reliable “netzero-energy” glazing solution that contributes to LEED points credits in over 6 categories
