Sage
Electrochromics, a leading manufacturer of advanced dynamic glass,
and Viracon, a leading single-source architectural glass fabricator,
are partnering to coordinate the exterior appearance of both electrochromic and
high performance glass. Under the agreement, Sage will market and sell a line
of products that incorporates a Viracon exterior lite that is designed to
complement other popular coatings available from Viracon. This product
integration will give customers more aesthetic options for solving a variety of
glazing challenges in their building projects. Both parties will work together
to help architects and building owners understand and appreciate this new
opportunity to use SageGlass and
Viracon high performance glass on the same project.



SageGlass is
electronically tintable dynamic glass for windows, skylights and curtain walls
that tints or clears to modulate light, heat gain and glare. Rather than using
conventional sun controls such as motorized window
shades, blinds and louvers that tend to block sunlight and views, SageGlass
provides a solution that conserves energy and enhances occupant comfort while
preserving unobstructed views of the outdoors.

“Architects
and building owners are requesting window solutions that offer a variety of aesthetic
options while meeting strict energy requirements. This partnership enables an
architect to blend both static and dynamic glazing solutions on the same
project while optimizing a building’s performance and appearance,” said Kevin
Anez, director of marketing and product management at Viracon. “Our innovative
technologies can be combined to complement a building’s design. We are pleased
to be working with Sage and look forward to advancing technological solutions
for the building industry.”

“The
partnership combines the most advanced dynamic glazing technologies with
Viracon’s leadership in architectural glass solutions,” said Andrew Hulse, Sage’s
vice-president of sales. “This partnership enables both companies to provide
holistic glass solutions to our customers.”
