Solar Activated Tinting Glass Needs No Electronics

SolarSmart GlassInnovative Glass Corp has added SolarSmart to its eGlass product line.

SolarSmart is a self-tinting glass that automatically darkens in the presence of direct sunlight to block heat, glare and ultraviolet light. The dynamic glass is 100 percent solar activated, powered and controlled, requiring no wires, electronics, external power or user involvement, which simplifies installation, and maximizes potential energy savings, says the company.

SolarSmart features a proprietary interlayer, which responds to the heat of the sun. The product has passed NREL’s durability and exposure tests.

Innovative Glass says buildings with SolarSmart can save up to 22 percent of installed equipment costs, supporting a quick return on investment.

The SolarSmart net-zero-energy glazing solution contributes to LEED credits in six categories.

SolarSmart is available in the form of insulated glass units for curtainwalls, atriums and OEM applications, as well as complete windows, doors and skylights for contractor installation.

  1. Technology continues to amaze many different business verticals and the window film industry has seen some really great advancements over the years. Self-tinting windows is a major step forward for all of us.

  2. when the glass gets darker, will it not absorbe more heat and therefore, get hotter and radiate more heat to the indoors at higher rate?
