Guardian Industries and Soladigm announced that the companies are working together to market and sell Soladigm dynamic glass in the commercial buildings sector. The partnership positions Soladigm for global adoption of its dynamic glass product and provides Guardian with an innovative architectural glass technology for its customers, company officials stated, in a May 10 release.

“Dynamically tinting architectural glass will substantially enhance building energy efficiency and occupant comfort. We have been carefully evaluating the landscape for the right technology that is ready for scale and widespread adoption,” said Scott Thomsen, Guardian Glass Group president, in the release.

Guardian will incorporate Soladigm’s dynamic glass product into its SunGuard advanced architectural glass portfolio with the introduction of a SunGuard EC product line. Guardian SunGuard will also integrate the new product into its Build with Light marketing program, an initiative that connects architects, glaziers and select fabricators with its product line, according to the release.

Soladigm dynamic glass utilizes electrochromic technology to switch from clear to tinted on demand, and enables control of heat and glare in buildings while providing greater comfort, uninterrupted views and natural daylight, company officials report.
