Dynamic Glass in Residential Applications.
Optimal daylighting, comfort, security, view preservation, and more- available for homeowners. Live your best life with Suntuitive Dynamic Glass.
Energy Savings & Sustainability
What are the benefits of using dynamic glass in residential applications? 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 structure and save up to 43% on energy. Reducing heat loads on a home also means that a smaller HVAC system can be utilized, optimizing space in the home.
Suntuitive allows more natural light to enter a home, 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 homeowners.
Suntuitive Dynamic Glass can help your home become more energy efficient. Suntuitive is great for residential 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 and is a perfect fit with Green and Passive building projects.
View Preservation & Connection to the Outdoors
We spend most of our lives indoors, and as a result we miss out so many benefits of natural daylight. Suntuitive Dynamic Glass opens a connection to the natural environment and improves quality of life for homeowners, because it reduces the need for curtains and blinds. Suntuitive tints as needed and can keep up to almost 90% of solar energy outside, keeping those inside comfortable.
Increased Health & Well-Being
Natural daylight and a connection to the outdoors are linked strongly with an increased sense of health and well-being. The different colors and wavelengths found in natural light are scientifically proven to positively alter circadian rhythms, moods, variable heart rates, melatonin production and other physiological factors, resulting in an overall better feeling of wellness. Suntuitive dynamic glass in residential applications is an investment in wellness.
Reduced Need for Blinds and Shading Devices
While Suntuitive is not a privacy glass, the benefits of dynamic glass reduce the need for blinds or shading devices to block heat and glare. Studies show once blinds are shut, they remain shut 59% of the time (USGBC). Dynamic glass mitigates solar heat and glare issues that prompt us to close blinds in the first place. Homeowners can retain their connection with the world outside and enjoy all the benefits of day light and natural views without the drawbacks.
Suntuitive Dynamic Glass in residential applications always comes in a laminated IGU, which carries with it the benefit of reducing the sound of outside noise for those within the home. Suntuitive helps create an indoor environment that allows homeowners to enjoy peace and quiet within their homes, undisturbed by outside noise.
The laminated construction of Suntuitive Dynamic Glass 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 sightlines and views of the street from inside the home, which adds to home security.
Enhanced UV Protection
The technology within the Suntuitive Dynamic Glass interlayer prevents UV light from entering a home. All glass blocks UV-B light, but most conventional glass allows UV-A light to enter the home. Suntuitive effectively blocks 99% of all harmful UV light, including UV-A. Fading can be caused by UV light and also from heat.
Suntuitive Dynamic Glass mitigates fading not just from UV light but also from heat, blocking up to 90 percent of solar heat energy. Suntuitive’s ability to control solar heat combined with the UV blocking abilities of the glass make it a superior product to any windows or aftermarket films that just provide UV protection when it comes to fading. Protected interiors mean your investments will last longer. Suntuitive offers fading protection for flooring, furnishings, artwork and plants behind the glass.
Suntuitive’s ability to block harmful UV light is not limited to fading protection but also the protection it offers homeowners. Suntuitive Dynamic Glass protects both skin and eyes from harmful UV-A light and potential damage it can cause.
