Architectural glazing

New building requirements and new energy standards push the limit for technology currently available. Tougher specifications with regards to insulation, but also tougher specifications for energy conservation as a whole. According to a study of the IEA, buildings use 36% of all global final energy consumption.

On the other side, all these requirements need to fit the building envelope, without jeopardizing the design freedom. Sleek façades, optimized interior space and maximum transparency compete with the necessity for sun blinds, ventilation openings and cooling which are combatting glare and heat.

eLstar Dynamics Smart glass

Our smart glass solution is a switchable, dynamic glazing which is controllable by the end-user or can be controlled by the building operating system, transforming the building into a smart building where our system is integrated with the systems for cooling & heating to get the most out of our products.

By the ability to switch seamlessly from its darkest level to its most transparent level, we can control the amount of light entering the building and therefore also a substantial part of the heat. By tinting the glass to the specified level at that moment, you can enjoy reduced glare without the need for artificial light. However, also without the need for sun blind systems.

The best of all is the fact that our switchable glass works with neutral colors and the color point does not change when switching. On top of this, you can choose different colors if this better suit the environment or branding of your customer.

Additionally, the switching of our dynamic glass happens instantaneously and homogeneous over the full surface. On top of this, we bring our technology to the market for prices which your end customer is willing to pay – the investment cost is very similar to most sun blind systems, however without the maintenance and design disadvantages.

Terminals and malls are large structures with large area’s of glass. Hence, a big build up (or loss) of heat. HVAC is layed out for peak loads. Reducing the peaks reduces the investment, environmental footprint and usage costs of such buildings.

Not just a gadget, but also functional. Increased acoustic properties add value to the design – decreased heat loads and glare finish off the value proposition.
