Life science facilities are demanding environments that challenge the limits of design practicality and aesthetics.
Practically, managing daylight indoors in research facilities that historically block it changes everything. Smart glass can create a dynamic building envelop shielding the interior from solar heat gain and UV while managing daylight indoors – allowing just the optimal amount of light in when and where its desired.
Aesthetically, HALIO’s forward-ready electrochromic glass technology and Viracon PLUS™ Smart Glass powered by HALIO® creates an inspiring work environment that looks good and supports the wellness and productivity of employees. The unobstructed views through naturally colorless HALIO Smart Glass may be inspiration – the eureka moment that a scientist was hoping for.
