Dynamic Glass for Building Owners.
Suntuitive Dynamic Glass for Building Owners adds immediate value to your building and increases your ROI.
If your building receives direct sunlight, and you’re looking to improve the human experience inside your business, Suntuitive Dynamic Glass for Building Owners could be the perfect solution to add value to your property and improve the productivity and health of the occupants inside.
Investing in natural light has a compound effect on your space. You can demand a higher rent, building occupants will be more comfortable, employees will be more productive, and you can save on energy costs.
Better Building. Better Human Experience. Better ROI.
Suntuitive Dynamic Glass minimizes energy use by reducing heat loads in winter as well as cooling loads in summer. Independent research at Lawrence Berkley National Laboratory has shown that using Suntuitive Dynamic Glass can reduce the heat load of a building and save up to 43% on energy. Reducing heat loads on a building also means less stress on the HVAC system, and a smaller HVAC system can even be utilized.
Suntuitive also allows more natural light to enter a building, creating daylight autonomy- basically, more natural light means less of a need for artificial light. Using less artificial lighting can save energy and also has a positive effect on building occupants.
Suntuitive Dynamic Glass can help your building be more energy efficient. Suntuitive is great for projects with a strong focus on energy savings and sustainability. Use of Suntuitive Dynamic Glass can also contribute to credits toward LEED or BREEAM certification.
Suntuitive Dynamic Glass comes in a laminated construction IGU, which carries with it the benefit of reducing the sound of outside noise for those within the building. Suntuitive helps create an indoor environment that allows students to concentrate in quiet classrooms, hospital patients to rest easy without being bothered by the street noise of sirens and other passing vehicles, and office meetings will run smoothly, undisturbed by outside noise.
Suntuitive Dynamic Glass’s laminated construction means your architectural IGU will not shatter. The interlayer will continue to function and tint the window even if the glass is broken. Additionally, Suntuitive offers passive surveillance, enabling sight lines and views of the street from inside the building, which adds to building security, especially important for schools, hospitals, and residential structures.
Increase the Productivity of your Workforce
Productivity is highly dependent on environment. Daylight and heat from the temperature around an office worker are directly connected to productivity and alertness. Suntuitive Dynamic Glass allows in the optimal amount of daylight and regulates the amount of heat which can enter a building- keeping building occupants comfortable throughout the day while allowing the building to remain filled with daylight. According to this study, artificial light can cause individuals to fatigue faster, make more mistakes, and shorten attention span. Exposure to proper natural light increases alertness and productivity of your employees.
Dynamic Glass for Building Owners makes sense!
Increase the Health & Well-Being of Building Occupants
Keep building occupants feeling well by letting light into your building with Suntuitive Dynamic Glass. Exposure to sunlight has a strong impact on a person’s overall health and well-being. Those who do not get sufficient exposure to natural light often have a vitamin D deficiency, trouble sleeping, and are more likely to experience mental health problems. Too much exposure to artificial light causes the brain to release cortisol, the stress hormone. The spike in cortisol puts added stress on our bodies and suppresses the immune system. It can also cause changes in metabolism and blood sugar levels.
Create a Better Environment for Healing
Everyone knows that nursing and healthcare professionals work in stressful environments and work through incredibly delicate situations daily. Exposure to natural light keeps staff alert and focused and reduces the opportunity for mistakes. Hospital staff who are exposed to sunlight in the workplace have, on average, better relationships with coworkers and are more likely to maintain a good mood over long, stressful shifts.
This mood-elevating effect of daylighting makes the hospital environment much more comfortable for staff, and in turn will have a similar effect on patients. Happier nurses lead to happier patients, and happier patients have shorter hospital stays – which not only lends itself well to higher patient satisfaction scores and a positive hospital reputation, but also cuts operating costs.
Staff won’t be the only ones reaping the benefits of daylight. Patients who stay in sunny hospital rooms are more likely to experience positive effects of daylight on mood. Mood and healing are both bolstered if the windows also offer a view. Patients in rooms that receive more natural light also tend to need less pain medication. According to one study, patients that received 46% more sunlight than the control group needed 22% less pain medication.
Allow Students to become More Brilliant
Natural light elevates mood, increases concentration, and can even help raise grades by up to 25%. Whether your educational building is for preschoolers, elementary school students, high school, or higher education—children, students, and staff can all benefit from receiving more natural daylight.
Students exposed to more natural light experience increased productivity and elevated mood. Students who are content are able to focus more of their energy on lessons and earn higher grades than students who are in classrooms lit by fluorescent lights.
