The comfort and energy savings of electrochromic glass, design flexibility and benefits of prefabrication in one integrated system
SACRAMENTO, Calif., May 4, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Clark Pacific, a leading provider of prefabricated systems that are transforming building design and construction, today announced it has been selected as the California preferred prefabrication provider for Halio, Inc., the technology leader in electrochromic smart glass. Through the partnership, Halio® Smart Glass will be an option with Clark Pacific’s Infinite Façade prefabricated building envelope system.
“At Halio, we take great pride in our ability to deliver solutions that allow for a more comfortable environment while achieving the highest levels of energy efficiency,” said Jonathan Hafemann, director of channel sales at Halio, Inc. “With this partnership, Halio furthers its commitment to providing customers with an easy to integrate, industry-leading electrochromic smart glass offering. We look forward to delivering the energy savings and experience of electrochromic glass with all the benefits of prefabrication.”
Halio combines the most advanced electrochromic technologies with a powerful, secure, easy-to-integrate cloud-based system, enabling the glass to tint autonomously or on command. By integrating the industry’s most advanced, natural-looking tinting glass, Clark Pacific offers single-sourced, fully integrated prefabricated building envelope systems with the benefits of design flexibility and energy savings of electrochromic glass.
Halio Smart Glass elevates value and improves the occupant experience in multiple ways:
- Superior color: Clear, like low-E glass, when un-tinted. Neutral cool-gray when tinted.
- Fast: Tints its full range in under 3 minutes.
- Responsive: The sensor samples daylight every 30 seconds and begins tinting within 15 seconds, allowing Halio Smart Glass to respond in real-time to unpredicted changes in weather.
- Even tinting: No obvious and distracting tinting patterns.
- Tint levels: Features unlimited tint level stops between clear and fully tinted, enabling a façade with Halio Smart Glass to maximize daylight rather than block it out, while optimizing for glare and heat gain management.
- AI cloud-based control and monitoring: Cloud-based artificial intelligence does real time monitoring and adjustments to optimize tinting performance on the fly for comfort and energy savings.
The partnership comes on the heels of the launch of Clark Pacific’s NetZero Building Platform, a complete prefabricated system for office buildings that prioritizes the environment and occupant wellness, and over the lifecycle of a building, reduces its global warming potential by 40 percent. The new standard for green and sustainable building design, Halio Smart Glass can also be used with the NetZero Building Platform, to further maximize energy efficiency and interior comfort, actively managing glare and heat gain.
“Smart windows can have a dramatic impact on a building’s energy use, cost and occupant comfort,” said Tom Anderson, general manager of facades at Clark Pacific. “Halio Smart Glass is a natural complement to our prefabricated envelope systems and helps us deliver an integrated, sustainable solution to our customers.”
