In a dramatic move to provide a live-showcase for its product, US-based manufacturer of electronically tintable SageGlass® is introducing the product to the UK at a trade show for the glass and glazing industries by replacing an entire glass wall at the Telford exhibition centre home of the event.
132 conventional glass units with a total area of 314 metres2 will be replaced permanently with SageGlass® Lightzone™ in advance of the launch of the product at The Fabricator Installer Trade (FIT) Show, the trade event for the UK window, door, glass and conservatory industries. The installation will allow the real-world demonstration of SageGlass Lightzone, which allows the creation of up to three variable tint zones within a single pane of glass, throughout the three days of the event which takes place on 12th, 13th and 14th April 2016 at The International Centre, Telford.
When installed the glass will be automatically controlled by four external light sensors which detect predetermined light levels at which the SageGlass will tint from the clear state of 60% light transmission, in four stages down to only 1% light transmission. All cable and controls are integrated in to the system and are easily installed in the existing curtain walling. Tinting and therefore light levels may be also controlled through a special SageGlass Mobile App.
SageGlass, a product of Saint-Gobain, the leading producer of flat glass in Europe and number two worldwide, chose the event and the dramatic decision to install its product ahead of the show due to the concentration of glazing industry professionals that will be attending The FIT Show.
In addition, the company’s partner on the UK Conservatory market, County Durham based Clayton Glass, will be featuring SageGlass on its stand at the event.
