“In terms of true sustainability for the built environment, the bar has been raised significantly,” said John Van Dine, CEO and founder. “In addition to reducing energy usage and making the space more comfortable, productive and enjoyable, we can eliminate costly building features, such as mechanized shades and blinds, and exterior add-ons like sunshades. Our windows can also contribute to LEED building credits and decrease HVAC system size. This not only reduces the natural resources and energy consumed in the construction process, it also decreases the building owner’s investment in the building, making SAGE’s dynamic glazing product a low-cost sun management solution as well.”
Tests show the dynamic, triple-glazed glass has an insulating R-value higher than 8, compared to an R-3 value typical of most low-E double-pane glass. Combining super insulation with the glazing’s dynamic tinting capability provides a 16% energy improvement over state-of-the-art static triple-pane glass with low-E, and better than a 50% improvement over single-pane glazings. According to SAGE, this makes the product an ideal solution for new construction and retrofits, primarily in heating-dominated climates where high R-value glazings are needed.
