SageGlass can be tinted through automated control to block glare from sunlight and meet intended benefits such as glare avoidance and energy reduction.
To prevent glare and encourage reliance on natural light through automated shading and dimming.
Part 1: Automated Sunlight Control
All windows larger than 0.55 m² [6 ft²] have the following:
- Shading devices that automatically engage when light sensors indicate that sunlight could contribute to glare at workstations and other seating areas.
Part 2: Responsive Light Control
The following requirements are met in all major workspace areas:
- All lighting except decorative fixtures is programmed using occupancy sensors to automatically dim to 20% or less (or switch off) when the zone is unoccupied.
- All lighting except decorative fixtures has the capacity and is programmed to dim continuously in response to daylight.
See detailed requirement for Automated shading and dimming light control
SageGlass can be tinted according to occupants’ and spaces’ requirements, through automated (Part 1: Automated Sunlight control) or manual control.
In the automated mode, the tint is controlled by exterior sunlight sensors, which detect whether there are glare conditions or cloud cover. The automated mode can also take into consideration occupancy and seasons for improved energy savings.
