Chicago-based Engineered Glass Products“ Thermique(TM) heated glass technology has won a 2005 “Best of What“s New” Award in the home technology category from Popular Science magazine. ““Best of What“s New“ is the ultimate Popular Science accolade, representing a year“s worth of work evaluating thousands of products,” says Mark Jannot, editor of Popular Science. “These awards honor innovations that not only influence the way we live today, but that change the way we think about the future.” Thermique(TM) transforms ordinary glass into an efficient heat source through the use of a proprietary conductive coating applied to the glass during fabrication. A controller supplies an electric current to the coating, which heats the glass with precise control. Heated glass towel warmers are among the first commercial products to take advantage of Thermique(TM) technology, designed exclusively by Engineered Glass Products. In addition to towel warmers, Thermique(TM) technology is being applied to architectural windows, oven ranges, warm food display cases, and other products. “Heated glass may be a brand new concept right now, but it won“t be long before Thermique(TM) technology is a commonplace and indispensable part in your everyday life,” says Mike Hobbs, CEO of Engineered Glass Products. “Glass products add beauty and style to any kitchen, bathroom, office, or restaurant. With Thermique(TM), we“ve taken all the advantages of ordinary glass and added a scientific usefulness that is vastly superior to competing technologies.” All Thermique(TM) components are UL(R) Recognized, and the towel warmers and architectural windows are UL Approved. Engineered Glass Products is seeking business partners to help develop new uses for Thermique(TM) technology and bring them to market. “We are honored to be recognized by Popular Science for our Thermique(TM) heated glass technology”, said Hobbs.
