Travelers expect a comfortable environment at the airport. This includes a place where they can rest, do some work, or simply do nothing while waiting for their flight, without any glare or unwanted sunlight.

Simultaneously, airport operators want to lower energy consumption, reduce maintenance, and operating costs, while providing the best experience for their travelers.

The HALIO Smart Glass solution solves all these requirements and sets the industry standard where it matters most – performance, reliability, customer satisfaction, while creating beautiful Airport facades.

Clearance and Visibility is Unlimited with HALIO Smart Glass

With HALIO Smart Glass, terminals and concourses maximize daylight without unwanted glare and solar heat gain. Only our real-time speed, responsiveness, and tint level fidelity can create a digital façade that keeps up with daylight changes. There’s no need to predict the weather because HALIO reacts to it as it’s happening. Never too dark, never too bright. Always just right. Always on time.

Only HALIO Smart Glass Provides Unlimited Natural Color

Inconsistent or uneven window color is caused by dated smart glass technology. It’s still functional, very costly, but not effective. HALIO’s next generation smart glass is clear and colorless (as it should be) when untinted, and then smoothly transitions to the desired neutral gray tint in less than 3mins to block unwanted sunlight. Its smart glass done the smart way.
