CLEARSHADE HIGH-PERFORMANCE HONEYCOMB GLAZING SELECTED BY LBNL
TECH FOCUS / CLEARSHADE: ENERGY AND DAYLIGHTING ANALYSIS
ClearShade™ honeycomb technology optimizes both DAYLIGHTING and SOLAR HEAT GAIN CONTROL in a single product, by transmitting and diffusing valuable visible light while reflecting unwanted solar heat.
Reduced lighting and HVAC loads result in significant energy and cost savings.
ClearShade™ glazing units offer DYNAMIC PERFORMANCE to provide the most solar heat control at peak hours, but their luminous appearance stays consistent, WITHOUT DARK TINTS or shading devices.
ClearShade™ was selected by Lawrence Berkeley National Lab (LBNL, a division of the Department of Energy) as a promising technology to enable the owners, designers and engineers of retro-fit or new construction projects to meet increasingly stringent energy-efficiency targets.
LBNL has integrated ClearShade into their suite of software tools for energy- and daylighting-analysis. They are the first entity to integrate angular selective performance data into such analysis tools, greatly expanding the opportunities for energy-savings thanks to the dynamic nature of the technology.
