has announced a distribution agreement with Prelco in Reviere-du-Loup, Que., enabling Prelco to incorporate Pleotint’s Suntuitive interlayer
technology into its proprietary Prel-Shade thermochromic window
Suntuitive interlayer by Pleotint features an advanced, sun-sensing,
adaptive-tinting technology. The agreement grants Prelco exclusive rights to
market Prel-Shade windows with Suntuitive interlayer technology in eastern
Canada, including Quebec, Ontario and the Maritime provinces.
Paul Ogburn, vice president of Pleotint, said, “Our agreement with Prelco
provides an opportunity to expand our distribution network while offering an
ideal glazing solution for office buildings, schools, restaurants and
residential applications throughout eastern Canada.”
Suntuitive interlayer by Pleotint is North America’s first
commercially available window interlayer for laminated glass that gradually darkens in response to
rising temperatures caused by direct sunlight, then cools as the sun
moves across the sky, returning to a clear, neutral state in cloudy or dark
“The Canadian construction market has seen rising demand for heat and glare
control products,” says Bill Marchitello, Canadian sales director for Prelco. “Prel-Shade
is an energy-efficient, easy-to-install alternative to other glazing products.
The thermochromic glass
technology offers a clear, unobstructed view that you can’t achieve with blinds
or dark tints.”
The Suntuitive interlayer requires no mechanical intervention,
which effectively eliminates the threat of failure caused by faulty wiring,
poor electrical connections, broken circuits or temperamental computer systems.
Installation of windows with Suntuitive interlayer is the same as other
