ViaSolis' Comfort Dynamic Glass
SELF-TINTING DYNAMIC GLASS FOR DAYLIGHTING AND ENERGY EFFICIENCY
SUSTAINABILITYSustainability appears to have come on its own: green design is accepted, embraced and even preferred in most building projects- the construction industry has been changing quickly and buildings that were at the leading edge in terms of sustainability just few year ago are now more standard. Increasing energy code stringency and market demand create challenging task for design teams to deliver innovative solutions to the traditional architecture. As a result, buildings are becoming more intelligent.
INOVATIONIn Europe and America, buildings consume around 40 percent of all energy – around 10 percent more than transport and create the same proportion of carbon—dioxide emissions. That forced governments of the countries to increase energy code stringency implementing new building design standards as LEED or Net Zero Energy Building (nZEB’s). One of the best options to reduce total annual energy consumption in buildings is implementation of innovative dynamic solar control solution – Dynamic glass. ViaSolis’ Comfort glass in fully automatic way, continuously self-tinting adapting sun and heat controlling thanks to Suntuitive thermo-chromic technology.
ENERGY SAVINGSThe case studies of recent building projects, numerous industry analyses has proved value of Dynamic glass achieving very low-energy-consumption building design. Concluded, that Dynamic glass can reduce energy costs by up to 28% of commercial building and eliminate up to 60% of daily lighting energy needs. Dynamic glass can benefit the owner of the building by:/br> • 10% to 20% reductions in operating costs • 15-24% peak demand reduction • 25% decrease in HVAC system size
