HALIO solves the problem of managing daylight by reducing solar heat, minimizing glare, and blocking UV while maximizing window-to-wall ratios. No need for shades or curtains. See your world unobstructed.

We develop and manufacture the world’s most advanced electrochromic technology. Our autonomously tinting smart glass reacts in real-time, uniformly, offering 101 levels (in cool grays), transitioning in 3 minutes, from clear to fully tinted. It is controlled by an AI cloud-based system with minimal on-premise electronics and a Sky Camera that seamlessly integrates into any smart building management system.

HALIO delivers energy savings, increases property value, enables tax credits, and enhances occupant productivity and wellness, while allowing architects the greatest freedom of design choice with unobstructed views.

HALIO for Mixed-Use

Studies show that daylight in a mixed-use/retail/service environment lifts spirits and improves wellness, increases visitors and dwell time leading to increased retail and occupant satisfaction. A HALIO Smart Glass building brings value to the community, enables tax credits, and sets the standard for energy efficiency and sustainability.

This was a great project for HALIO and our glass manufacturing partner, Viracon. It feels good to provide a new, environmentally-friendly home for all the brave people that will be using this facility on a daily basis.

The mixed-use LEED building includes a municipal fire house, emergency administration offices, and response crew training facilities. Managed daylight creates an environment that enables employees to recharge, increase productivity, and be at peak alertness.

Our employees appreciate that they do not have to get up to let down or adjust blinds and are able to keep working at their workstations without disruptions due to intensity of the sun or heat.
