“We are very selective in the products and materials that we represent and Suntuitive has met our standards completely,” commented Jamie Bonnefin, director of Certified Energy. “Dynamic Glass technology like Suntuitive can make a significant difference on the energy performance of a building as well as the comfort of those who inhabit the structure. We look forward to educating our community about it all.”

Suntuitive® Dynamic Glass is an advanced, yet simple, dynamic glass technology. With Suntuitive, architects, building owners, building professionals and homeowners can specify an adaptive glazing system that transitions seamlessly between clear and tinted.

Suntuitive® Dynamic Glass works through the use of a thermochromic interlayer that is activated by heat from direct sunlight, causing the window to tint as necessary. The thermochromic elements are embedded in a PVB (polyvinyl butyl) interlayer, which is then laminated between two pieces of glass. This laminate is then incorporated into the final product, a dynamic insulated glass unit (dIGU). There is no electricity used to make this resilient product work and the window unit installs in the same way a traditional unit does.
