Saint-Gobain has released SageGlass Harmony®, one of the world’s most elegant dynamic glass. Unveiled for the first time at Glasstec in Dusseldorf, Germany, Harmony is a unique glazing solution for building owners and designers seeking to enhance the occupant experience by maximizing visual and thermal comfort. Unlike other solar management solutions that compromise aesthetics and impede views, Harmony dynamic glass provides daylight, heat and glare management while maintaining a natural and seamless connection to the outdoors. The pioneer of the world’s smartest electrochromic glass, SageGlass® is the ultimate connector between the built and natural environments. SageGlass tints on demand to optimize daylight, reduce glare and manage heat – all while maintaining unobstructed views of the outdoors. With SageGlass, architects and building owners can improve occupant comfort and reduce energy demand in buildings. As a wholly owned subsidiary of Saint-Gobain, SageGlass is backed by more than 350 years of building science expertise.
SageGlass LightZone® was the first dynamic glazing to allow for in-pane tinting to precisely control the source of uncomfortable heat and glare while providing optimal Saint-Gobain Unveils the World’s Most Elegant Dynamic Glass lighting conditions. However, LightZone® has defined lines between tinted and clear areas of the glass. Harmony improves on this by delivering a gradual in-pane tint transition from fully clear to fully tinted. The result is a glazing that affords a more seamless connection with the outdoors while still providing optimized daylight, color rendering, heat and glare control. According to SageGlass CEO Alan McLenaghan, “Harmony represents the best glass technology evolution ever produced in our dynamic glazing portfolio. It represents a near perfect balance between the performance and aesthetic goals a solar control and glazing solution needs to deliver”.
