Here's How Smart Glass Makes Better Buildings

Smart glass combines nanoparticle technology with intelligent controls to make buildings more energy efficient, to allow more natural light, to provide increased comfort for employees, and to eliminate heat and glare.

Smart glass consists of glass treated with an electrochromic metal oxide coating, one fiftieth the thickness of a human hair. The glass transforms from transparent to four levels of tint by passing a low voltage through intelligent controllers into the panels.

Inside Electrochomic Glass

Smart glass is developed in a state-of-the art manufacturing facility using proven semiconductor technology. The success of smart glass is the result of precision high volume processes to create the glass and the ability to create practically any size glass panel up to 6x10 feet.

Panels are assembled in IGUs (insulated glass units) and then installed in buildings, skylights, and atriums. Even the installation of the panels is designed to be simple - connectors plug the panels into the controllers and the installation of View Dynamic Glass IGUs is easy enough for any commercial glazier.

More freedom of design

Intelligent control is the secret to making smart glass really smart. Smart glass uses this intelligence to predict weather changes, to track the sun's movement, to determine the amount of light, and to automatically control the tint of individual windows, zones or facades.

Building occupants can also use mobile devices to set the level of tint or leave the controls on automatic. When smart glass windows are set on automatic, the energy savings are maximized, the amount of natural light is maximized, and heat and glare are eliminated.

Buildings can automaically react to their environment - if it's sunny and hot, the glass automatically tints, eliminating heat and glare, saving energy, and making occupants more comfortable. The views to the outside are preserved - instead of blocking views with shades and/or blinds, the glass transitions automatically to allow the best view while eliminating heat and glare.
