RavenWindow: Ultimate Glare & Energy Efficiency
Commercial buildings come with challenges, especially when it comes to energy-efficient windows. Traditional windows let in too much heat in the summer and block desired solar gain in the winter. To compensate, HVAC systems work overtime, resulting in higher costs and increased energy consumption.
RavenWindow dynamic glass windows respond to changing climactic conditions 24/7. During high temperatures, they automatically reduce heat and glare. When temperatures drop, they respond by letting maximum light and warmth in. No additional permits, labor, or wiring are necessary – and with a highly aggressive ROI, RavenWindows make great economic sense as soon as they’re installed.
Whether you’re renovating or on a new build, RavenWindows take an active role in simplifying commercial building with a perfect blend of increased comfort and targeted energy efficiency. Delivering a return on investment in as few as four years, RavenWindows require no additional design or installation steps. They transition automatically, triggered directly by outside temperatures – and come with customizable options to respond to the regional climate zone.
Making Commercial Buildings Better
Meet LEED Requirements Now – and Save Energy for Years to Come.
The RavenWindow solution reduces energy use by up to 30%. Qualified for use toward LEED certification, RavenWindows feature the highest performing dynamic glass available to builders today.
And during that life, RavenWindow systems manage themselves without control systems, electrical wiring or building monitoring. Low maintenance and high performance for decades to come – it’s the best of all worlds.
RavenWindow: Coating Level Specifications
It’s a simple case of paying attention to what the sun is up to: our thermochromic technology knows exactly when to go to work. Manufactured to design and glass specifications, RavenWindow’s thermochromic technology requires no wiring, programming or additional installation. It’s set to respond to specific temperature ranges, automatically. Summer or winter, RavenWindow knows exactly what to do, and when to do it.
RavenWindow helps maximize natural light, ideal for daylighting solutions during the winter months when sunlight is at a premium. The technology also manages solar heat gain in the summer, eliminating the need for architectural elements designed to mitigate the effects of the sun, like louvers and sun shades. RavenWindow responds automatically to temperature changes and requires no programming or maintenance; once they’re installed you can rely on them.
RavenWindow: Maximizing ROI
Whether you’re planning for new construction or remodel/replacement on an older building, RavenWindow is the only choice for a return on investment that gives new meaning to energy efficiency.
When it comes to energy consumption, the windows can be the weakest link. During summer months, solar heat through windows drastically increases HVAC load and energy costs. In the winter, windows covered by curtains or blinds don’t allow the passive solar heat gain that can reduce the need for constant heating.
RavenWindow technology blocks summer solar heat gain and glare by automatically transitioning to its tinted state. When the weather turns colder, RavenWindow remains clearer to maximize solar heat gain giving your building access to free heat generated directly by the sun.
RavenWindow is a vital component in making a space more comfortable, balancing natural light while managing solar heat. RavenWindow makes life better indoors, season after season. Employees will enjoy increased comfort, increased productivity and enhanced health effects.
Scientific studies consistently show daylight is almost universally preferred to electric lighting (Wright and Cropanzano). These studies also prove that natural light improves mood, performance, and overall well-being. In addition, studies support that natural light has a positive effect on everything from enhanced immune systems to more productive behavior.
A recent study conducted by the American Society of Interior Designers indicated that 68 percent of employees complain about the lighting situation in their offices. The two most common scenarios for poor office lighting are lights that are too dim and lights that are too harsh.
RavenWindow addresses both of these issues with natural light, reduced glare, and 100% block of harmful UV rays.
