Find Your Comfort Zone: SageGlass Superior Solar Control

Dec. 9, 2016

Research proves that daylight and outdoor views are beneficial to human health and wellbeing, but for many architects finding the design balance to achieve the positives for building occupants, while also managing the negative heat and glare effects of the sun, is a major challenge. Every design and every building is different and there is no one-size-fits-all solution to solar control, but there is one option unlike the rest – electrochromic glass.

Dynamic SageGlass® provides architects and buildings owners with a window of opportunity. It offers the flexibility to fit into almost any design and provides superior solar control, without having to sacrifice daylight and outdoor views. Here are three reasons why SageGlass is leading the charge on providing innovative, superior solar control with our industry-leading electrochromic glass:

  1. Custom zones provide the perfect mix of light – Only SageGlass LightZone™ provides the ability to create up to three tint zones within a single pane of glass, so you can let in exactly the right amount of light and block the sun only where needed. Additionally, customized light-zoning strategies can use dynamic controls to track the sun as it moves across the sky to strike the ideal balance between comfort and daylighting.

  2. Automation and manual control make tinting easy - SageGlass can be tinted and cleared using automatic settings or seamless integration with the existing building automation system. This automation lets occupants enjoy the benefits of the glass without having to think about it. In addition to traditional wall switches, you can use our mobile app to fine-tune tint zones and save predefined scene settings for specific lighting effects from anywhere in the building.

  3.  Diverse shapes, sizes and colors are available to fit design needs – In addition to squares and rectangles, we offer SageGlass in trapezoid, parallelogram and triangle shapes. And, our electrochromic glass is getting bigger too. While there are some size limitations for diverse shapes, our rectangular panes can be as large as 5x10 feet. To achieve your desired look or match existing building glass, SageGlass comes in clear, blue, green, gray and more.

SageGlass is transforming the human experience in buildings by creating more comfortable spaces that allow people to enjoy the benefits of natural daylight. Our dynamic glass offers solar control unlike any other glass product currently on the market. We’ve truly revolutionized the purpose and possibilities of glass.
