Company Description: SageGlass®, the electronically tintable glass from Saint-Gobain, isa dynamic solar control solution for windows, doors and façades. It offers an environmentally friendly and energy-efficient alternative to blinds or shades and provides reliable year-round indoor comfort whilst at the same time ensuring long-term sustainability for the building. Glare from the sun is a thing of the past; the only thing that remains is a clear view to the outdoors in a comfortable environment. The light transmittance can be adjusted between 1% and 60%. So however harsh the sun’s rays might be, SageGlass® can adjust to reduce the amount of daylight entering a space - as well as the consequent solar heat gain. SageGlass® is highly efficient too.
