On-demand switching between clear and variable-tint states.
SunGuard EC can change its tint from clear to dark on demand, giving occupants and owners an unprecedented control over the amount of light and heat that enters a building. Depending on project design, this dynamic control has the potential to reduce HVAC energy consumption and peak power usage, which can result in a significant reduction in operating costs. Additionally, because they also control glare, windows that use SunGuard EC do not need blinds, shades or other window treatments, thus providing unobstructed views to the occupants.
How electrochromic works:
Low-voltage electrical current is applied to the optically active layers in the electrochromic coating, which adjust the level of tint. Whether automated, or manual, the tint level of the window can be adjusted to one of four settings to match changing needs.
