Pleotint, LLC manufactures, Suntuitive, a self-tinting window technology that darkens gradually and dynamically when heated by direct sunlight, without the need for any mechanical intervention. The glass technology uses heat generated by sunlight to tint windows, increasing energy efficiency and optimizing comfort and views.
Solar Innovations, Inc. a manufacturer of a variety of glazed products, from operable windows and doors to sunrooms and wood curtain walls will now offer Suntuitive dynamic glazing as an option to be integrated into its extensive product line. The fact that Suntuitive is easy-to-use, affordable, and can be implemented into Solar’s vast product line provides customers with endless benefits.
“Solar Innovations has always been on the cutting-edge of technology, not only with our own product designs, but also with integrating innovative products from other companies,” explains Solar Innovations, Inc.’s Marketing Manager, Melissa Reinhart.
“Although we also work with other dynamic glass suppliers, Suntuitive glass by Pleotint offers expansive opportunities for residential and commercial projects. The facts that there are no wires and installation doesn’t require an electrician are unique advantages. We intend to offer Suntuitive glass with any and all of our windows and doors, and we will be able to retrofit our older systems and those from other manufacturers as well,” she explained.
When paired with LowE glazing and an insulated glass unit (IGU), Suntuitive glass can provide a visible light transmittance as high as 60 percent while in its clear state. Solar heat gain coefficients as low as 0.11 can be achieved when in the darkened state, reducing heating, cooling, and lighting related costs.
