Marvin is bringing smart glass technologies into its product line through an exclusive agreement with architectural smart glass company Halio, through which it will offer Halio smart-tinted glass as an option for its window, door, and skylight products.
“We are truly committed to well-being at Marvin, focused on providing solutions that support happier and healthier living through maximizing light, air, and views in new ways,” says Paul Marvin, CEO. “This partnership is the newest in a series of product introductions designed for emerging ways of living. We've long anticipated a complete smart glass solution for the residential market, and Halio, the technology leader in architectural smart glass, is delivering just that. We could not be more excited to partner to bring this advanced technology to architects and building professionals who design for homeowner well-being.”
This move brings Halio’s glazing technology to the residential market for the first time. With a combination of electrochromic technologies and a powerful, secure cloud-based communication system, users can adjust the tint of their window either on command or automatically in response to the time of day. The glass can transition smoothly to its darkest shade in just three minutes, cutting down heat and glare while maximizing natural light, according to the manufacturer.
“Halio has spent years developing the world’s most responsive, intelligent platform for daylight management. We’ve realized a solution that integrates all the necessary attributes to finally go mainstream, and now that we have it, the smart glass market is at a long-awaited inflection point,” says Halio CEO Bruce Sohn. “Marvin is the perfect partner to collaborate with to develop the high-performing products that will introduce residential consumers to the transformational benefits—comfort, natural light, and gorgeous design—of smart glass for the first time."
The companies are in the process of developing new products that utilize Halio’s technology. marvin.com
