Partners to produce halio smart-tinting insulating glass units
Kinestral Technologies, Inc., developer and manufacturer of Halio smart-tinting glass, announced that the company has collaborated with Vitrum Glass Group to produce Halio insulating glass units for multiple commercial projects in North America.
These projects will use more than 100,000 square feet of Halio smart-tinting glass produced at Kinestral’s large-scale Taiwan manufacturing facility. Vitrum Glass Group will begin delivery of the Halio IGUs to these initial projects in the coming weeks.
Multiple commercial projects in North America
The partnership marks a notable milestone in the deployment of Halio to commercial building and residential home markets. It combines the high-volume Halio glass production capability of Kinestral with Vitrum’s large-scale IGU manufacturing capacity to service large numbers of customers in North America. Kinestral chose to partner with Vitrum because of the company’s 20+ years of experience in building IGUs that meet architects’ specifications for Pacific Coast customers, as well as its commitment to excellence and quality.
A complete reinvention of electrochromic technology, Halio smart-tinting glass eliminates the issues that plagued older products:
- Natural Color. In its clear state, Halio looks like natural glass, and it tints to neutral, cool gray shades.
- Fast and Uniform Tinting. Halio starts tinting within seconds and switches 10 times faster than older generation products. Tinting is uniform across any glass sheet size, allowing unlimited tint level options.
- Customizable. Halio gives architects complete design freedom and flexibility. They can specify coatings, glass color, and other features to achieve performance and aesthetic goals.
S.B. Cha, CEO of Kinestral stated, “Halio is the best performing, most beautiful smart-tinting glass product on the market. Our Taiwan factory is now producing large volumes of Halio with the highest level of quality for customers throughout the world. Vitrum shares the same dedication to quality as Kinestral, so we look forward to growing our relationship and delivering on additional projects in North America in the months ahead.”
