Highest reliability, what building owners, architects and window manufacturers demand

It's time to change the way we approach design and the methods we use to control the effects of sunlight. Time for solutions with new, sustainable solutions and for more comfort and well-being of people in the buildings we build and renovate.

SageGlass opens up new paths. The world's most intelligent glazing solution changes people's lives in buildings by combining the structural and natural environment. Thanks to the electronically controlled tinting function of SageGlass, the glazing can be tinted at any time - as sun protection, heat protection or to avoid glare, without any awnings, blinds or roller blinds. This technology enables enormous savings in air-conditioning costs, as up to 95 percent of solar radiation can be prevented.
