What do adaptive glazing systems offer? – Perspectives for the industry

Adaptive glazing can only be seen in the context of many tasks. This is an architectural dream for a long time. Key conditions for intensive market penetration are • Important applications of today’s insulating glass solutions are possible + the desired variability in terms of light, energy transmission, glare protection, room lighting and comfort • Comparable Prices – i.e. Insulating glass plus external shading. The customer buys no product, he buys a solution to his problems. For decades, work has been going on to achieve these demanding goals. If achieved, it’s a chance that all static solutions would be replaced by so-called controllable (= active) smart systems. The development is in an exciting phase, as improved systems are being introduced for the first time and the chances of gaining up to 10% market share is in reach. Reason enough to take a closer look at the topic, to align its product range and investments accordingly. Applications are architecture, railways, automobiles, airplanes, cruise-liners, as well as refrigerators. Decisive is not only the product performance, but also intelligent self-learning control systems, which in the context of all physical building requirements allow an optimal solution for user comfort, energy consumption and resources.
