A FIT Show Debut for SMART, Switchable Glass


03 Mar A FIT Show Debut for SMART, Switchable Glass

Clayton Glass will be exhibiting in the Innovation Zone at this years FIT Show, with their new SMARTGLASSâ Dynamic, powered by SageGlass development not just on their stand, but the product is now featured to the very front of The International Centre Telford as visitors arrive at the show.

SMARTGLASSâ Dynamic is a clear glass that at the push of a button can transform across a number of intermediate states to a fully blue tinted state in just a matter of minutes. In it’s fully tinted state this revolutionary glass technology from Saint Gobain can block 91% of the sun’s rays and reduce light transmission down to just 1%, yet in it’s clear state has similar properties to a standard IGU and for everything else there are two intermediate states.

This new electrochromic switchable glass technology is now commercially viable and will be initially in a range of lantern roofs on a 10 day lead time, which are available from a select number of partners, including Prefix Systems. The stand will feature one static and two interactive samples of the SMARTGLASSâ Dynamic in action, including an ultraSKY lantern roof, along with a live video demonstration.

SMARTGLASSâ Dynamic is part of an expanded range of specialist solar control glass for conservatories, Orangeries and lantern roofs and includes SMARTGLASSâ-W, which is a product range specifically designed for conservatory doors and windows, along with large span bi-folding doors and lift and slide patio doors.

Jason McCabe, commercial director of Clayton Glass commented: ‘SMARTGLASSâ Dynamic is yet another example of Clayton Glass bringing next generation glass to the marketplace. We’re now able to offer electrochromic switchable glass at a commercially realistic price for lantern roofs, within a 10 day lead time and it fully supports our product innovation strategy for glazing in windows, doors and conservatories.’

You can see SMARTGLASS® Dynamic in the Innovation Zone at the FIT Show on stand A30.
