SageGlass dynamic glass is on display at the SAGE booth and an integrated SageGlass-Lutron display is featured at the Lutron booth at the AIA Convention 2014, taking place until 28 June, in Chicago.
Dr. Helen Sanders, Vice President, Technical Business Development, SAGE Electrochromics, a subsidiary of Saint-Gobain & Dr. Pekka Hakkarainen, Vice President, Lutron Electronics, are presenting at a session at the AIA Convention 2014, taking place until 28 June, in Chicago, to discuss integrating window, lighting systems to help meet challenging new building codes.
Entitled ‘Integrated Window and Lighting Systems Can Help Meet Challenging New Building Codes’, the presentation is a continuing education course examining how dynamic fenestration – in concert with proper window size and location, interior furniture layout, and electric lighting – can provide flexibility for changing conditions in a building during the day and help architects overcome challenges created by potential conflicts in high-performance building standards such as ASHRAE 189.1-2009, LEED and other emerging minimum energy codes.
SageGlass® advanced dynamic glass, a product of Saint-Gobain, is on show in large form geometric shapes at the SAGE booth #3663. The demonstrations feature SageGlass’ unique ability to deliver energy savings in form factors that meet architects’ design needs. SageGlass is available in many geometric shapes including traditional squares and rectangles as well as trapezoids, parallelograms and triangles.
An integrated demo featuring SageGlass and Lutron is on display at the Lutron booth #2431.
SageGlass has also released a new white paper summarizing the many causes of UV fading and illustrates the relative fading protection performance of SageGlass versus standard glazing products.
SageGlass®, a product of Saint-Gobain, is advanced dynamic glass that can be electronically tinted or cleared to optimize daylight and improve the human experience in buildings. SageGlass manages the sunlight and heat that enter a building, significantly reducing energy consumption while improving people’s comfort and wellbeing. It can reduce a building’s cooling load by 20% and HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) requirements up to 30%.
