Glare and heat control create continuous challenging conditions for the transport industry, whether it be in airplanes, trains, buses or cars. Travellers are impacted by direct sunlight exposure behind the glass, which can be hindering and impacting comfort levels. On the other side, you do not want to impact the view of the surroundings with sun blinds or permanently tinted glass.
Our switchable glass technology controls the glare and heat which users feel, without jeopardizing the view to the open air outside.
This allows an enhanced view to the environment, whilst reducing HVAC (Heating, Ventilation & Air-Conditioning) requirements. This immediately impacts the fuel consumption of cars, notably electric cars, but also for trains and buses. As our default, unpowered-mode is the dark status, there is also less heat build up when the power is switched off during parking.
