Electronically tintable glass - an intelligent and dynamic solar control solution and so much more
More and more ship designs are characterized by their large expanses of glass. Passengers like to feel connected to the outdoors – to see nature and benefit from natural daylight – while still feeling protected from the heat and glare of the sun in a comfortable indoor climate. SageGlass® Marine is the solution to all of these demands.
Whatever day rhythm passengers on a ship have, SageGlass® Marine has the unique property to adapt to every activity happening at every moment during the day. Basically this glass will reduce the cooling load at sea by dynamically adapting to the sun path and angle at all times. Passengers experience an exclusive feeling of well-being and comfort and will spend more time on the ship. As a consequence of the dynamic characteristics, costs for maintenance on blinds and shades both externally and internally will eliminated.
The lowest set point at 1% light transmission will control glare to an absolute minimum creating an environment pleasant to both passengers and crew.
Individual zone control with LightZone™ With the ingenious LightZone™ function, SageGlass® can regulate the amount of sun that penetrates a window in three individual tint zones. In other words, three different levels of glare protection and daylight entry are possible within the same pane.
SageGlass® Harmony is the newest generation providing a smooth transition that speaks to the human eye, to super high-level designs as well as to residential areas such as cabins and lounges.
