SageGlass: Automatic Glass Tinting Based on the Sun

Already on the American market for over ten years, SageGlass was presented for the very first time in Dubai at the construction fair Big Five in November 2015.

Its factory based in Minnesota produces glass that “tints on demand which helps save energy, reduce heat and glare and enables building occupants maintain a connection to the outdoors” CEO Alan McLenaghan explains on the company’s website.

Its electronic control system automatically adjusts levels of tint throughout the day based on the position of the sun and can prevent the loss of up to 30% of heating and cooling compared to conventional glass, according to the US Department of Energy.

Architects, glazing contractors and individual building owners can all benefit from its easy ‘set and forget’ capabilities, giving it a great many practical uses to a wide range of customers.
