Some applications defy all normal expectations of ‘light controlling windows’ but are nonetheless in serious demand. Some examples:
Fridges and Freezers doors – ActiveGlass enables owners to see the contents of a fridge or freezer without opening the door (saving energy), yet hide everything, and look like a normal door, with the flick of a switch.
Agricultural glass (and plastic) buildings – an ActiveGlass canopy is positioned to manage the optimum distribution of sunlight energy throughout the day for growing crops. As the sun traverses the sky, the canopy selectively filters radiation intensity according to the angle of incidence, without recourse to any moving parts or electricity.
Information and Advertising displays – windows and partitions can be set up to have additional functions, such as text or advertising messages. For example a shop could be fitted with a Sun Control Window, which has Advertising images projected onto it, and also has a Privacy function whereby the window goes blank during closing hours, hiding the window contents from view.
