Installing SageGlass: Smart Electrochromatic Glass

Posted on April 19, 2017, by

Uninterrupted views without glare. A comfortable controlled climate without the sun’s heat gain from sunup to sunset. A sustainability solution with LEED certification points. That’s SageGlass—a tintable electrochromatic smart glass.

SageGlass provides electrochromatically controlled tinting throughout the day as the sun moves across the room, so no blinds are needed. This reduces glare while providing uninterrupted window views. The SageGlass smart tinting also blocks out the sun’s heat gain and reduces energy consumption by as much as 20% which helps pay for itself. SageGlass is a sustainability solution that contributes to LEED certification programs.

SageGlassEmpirehouse, a certified NACC Architectural Glass & Metal Contractor, has been installing more and more of this state-of-the-art electrochromatic SageGlass in the last year including at the SageGlass corporate headquarters in Faribault, MN. The Empirehouse Glazing Team made up of Foreman Mike Blumer, Glazier Edward Love, and Apprentice Joel Thorson are featured in the April 2017 Glass Magazine SageGlass ad installing SageGlass at their headquarters.
