Aviation Solutions


Travelers expect a pleasant environment without any unwanted glare or uncomfortable sun filled areas. They want a daylight-controlled area where they can shop, dine, rest, work, or simply do nothing while waiting for their flight.

Simultaneously, airport owners and operators want to lower energy consumption, reduce maintenance, and operating costs, while providing the best possible experience for their travelers. A comfortable travel experience increases dwell time, which means more potential revenue for the airports and their vendors.

HALIO Smart Glass has set the Aviation industry standard where it matters most – energy and operational savings for the operators, and best possible traveler experience. Control your daylight the right way with HALIO.
