Guardian Industries and Soladigm have 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.
Guardian will incorporate Soladigm's Dynamic Glass product into its SunGuard advanced architectural glass portfolio of solutions 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.
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.
Soladigm Dynamic Glass can significantly reduce heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) energy usage in commercial buildings, in particular during times of peak load.
"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 wide spread adoption," said Scott Thomsen, Guardian Glass Group president.
"We have been impressed by Soladigm's unique approach and the rapid progress they have made in bringing dynamic glass technology to the industry. We are excited to be partnering with Soladigm, and look forward to providing this innovative product to our customers."

"We are excited to be working with Guardian as a go-to-market partner. Guardian's extensive sales and distribution channels will provide rapid growth for Soladigm's Dynamic Glass product on a global scale."
