A look through the window is always a look out into the world and life. Good for the one who can call a winter garden his own. More transparency is hardly possible. Literally “on top” Sunshine offers the proven OpenAir sliding roof with the dimmable insulating glass “EControl” for its conservatories: Thanks to a sophisticated physical effect, it adapts ideally to the changing external conditions during the day and year.
But the variable sun protection glass not only cuts a fine figure in conservatories with open-air roofs. Sliding roof windows and convertible sunroofs can also be equipped with it and thus open up new horizons.
And isn’t it really amazing that although glass is a solid material, light can penetrate unhindered? However, this wonderful transparency also has a major disadvantage in summer: the sun’s rays heat up rooms properly, and the beautiful view is a thing of the past, as shading in the form of roller shutters, blinds or awnings is the order of the day.
OpenAir sliding roof with dimmable glass
It is well known that the OpenAir sliding roof system offers first-class living comfort and excellent climate control. The fact that the light and heat input into the room can be individually controlled as required, however, is brand new.
This is because the glazing adapts ideally to the changing external conditions throughout the day and year. The basis of this variable solar control glass is the so-called “electrochromic effect”: a thin nanostructured coating turns blue when an electrical voltage is applied and thus virtually reduces the permeability for sunlight in the composite pane. Even the slightest climatic changes activate the physical effect and regulate the light and solar energy permeability of the dimmable composite pane. More comfort and at the same time energy-saving transparency is really not possible. But not only with the winter garden the open air glass roof with variable sun protection glass makes a good figure. Roof rooms or terraces can also be equipped with it and thus open up new horizons.
