Just a few weeks after launch, requests for the new Smartglass Dynamic sample kits have reportedly exceeded 200, with companies and individuals keen to try out the ‘revolutionary’, self-tinting, glass technology for conservatories, orangeries and other glazing elements.
The handy-sized sample kits encourage users to place a sample piece of Smartglass Dynamic in any hot liquid for 30 seconds. After this time, the glass transforms from clear to a darkened state, reflective of the process that occurs when the glass is exposed to direct sunlight in various window, door and glazed roof applications.
Depending upon the surface temperature of Smartglass Dynamic, it ranges from a clear state ‘close to that of standard glass’, to a darkened state with a G-value of 10%. According to Smartglass, this performance measurement is ‘better than any other conservatory roof glass in the UK’, including the S Smartglass Ultra 86. For ‘everything else in between’, the glass unit will offer various states of semi-tinted appearance and active solar control, 365 days a year.
Jason McCabe, commercial and site director of Clayton Glass, commented: “The number of requests for the glass has exceeded expectations by some way in just a matter of weeks. We believe this technology has considerable scope for the conservatory sector in particular, given the fact we can make units in any shape and delivered nationwide within 10-14 days from point of order.
“Sales savvy companies will look to promote this technology to early adopting consumers eager for an adaptive and dynamic living environment.”
