Dynamic Glasses or smart glasses are the next generations of glass technologies with the ability to adapt. It affects electronics in response to external conditions, proves to be better than static glass. This is significant in view of the fact that windows are considered to be one of the most energy-efficient, with 40% of total heat, cooling, and lighting. By making visibility a responsive factor and solution for solar control, strong glass has become a key component of high-end construction.
Considering the phenomenal possibilities that can be harnessed with dynamic glass, various Architectural glass companies in Europe have started considering them as a better alternative in the future.
What is Dynamic Glass:
Dynamic glass switch between the tinted and clear state on demand provides light and temperature control while providing continuous viewing. The system can operate independently or on-demand, enabling the user to clear or tint the glass at will. In the default mode, the system will automatically clear or tint the glass, adapting to environmental conditions.
Advanced glass can bring different tint levels, corresponding to less than 4, 20, and more than 60 percent of the visible light intensity (Tvis) and other tint levels are available. In its fully color-coded environment, building riders can block heat and carry light while looking through the glass to see the outside world.
The technology allows control of individual windows or groups of windows combined. With the knowledge of the collection, spaces can be created to make a functional arrangement of glass areas with different uses or within a single stain of optimal light. For instance, in the construction of a curtain wall, the high quality of the viewing glass can be set at 20 percent Tvis, allowing light for daylight purposes, while the remaining standard glass can be set in a dark shade to reduce light.
With this design capability, powerful glass controls can be integrated into building management systems or controlled from a tablet or smartphone.
Dynamic Glass or “Smart” is a future-oriented solution for only 0.5 % of commercial construction in high-income countries. It is anticipated that growth will occur especially in the commercial sector in high-income countries that are already experiencing the high availability of highly efficient glass. It can also be estimated that flexible glass could reach 30-50 percent of commercial building construction at a high income by 2050. The relative strength of the weather can be based on cooling which is estimated at 9 % and light also at 9 %. Both will vary according to the local climate and the area of construction and construction. Receiving a flexible glass can result in 0.3-0.5 gigatons to reduce emissions from reduced energy consumption. The additional financial costs are $ 69-103 billion, bringing about a total cost of living of $ 99-165 billion.
Luxury and now world-class glass windows bring light and visibility into a building’s environment without inviting the heat. These glasses primarily because of their ability of energy conservation will become the talking point of the glass industry in the near future.
