Marvin announces partnership to bring self-tinting glass to residential market
Halio combines advanced electrochromic technologies with a cloud-based system that enables glass to tint automatically or on command.
Marvin, the Warroad, Minn.-based maker of windows, doors and skylights, has announced a partnership with a manufacturer of self-tinting smart glass.
Marvin announced the partnership with Halio, Inc. April 13, to bring smart-tinting glass solutions to the residential market. Previously it was only available for commercial construction projects.
“This partnership is the newest in a series of product introductions designed for emerging ways of living,” said Paul Marvin, CEO. “We've long anticipated a complete smart glass solution for the residential market and Halio, the technology leader in architectural smart glass, is delivering just that."
Halio combines advanced electrochromic technologies with a cloud-based system that enables glass to tint automatically or on command. The glass achieves its darkest shade in three minutes, and adapts to changes in light through smooth transitions that result in a neutral color when tinted. Halio glass maximizes the amount of natural light coming into a space while keeping out excessive heat and glare. Halio’s goal is to allow for a more comfortable environment that supports health and well-being indoors, through its energy efficient product.
“Marvin is the perfect partner to collaborate with to develop the high-performing products that will introduce residential consumers to the transformational benefits – comfort, natural light and gorgeous design – of smart glass for the first time,” said Bruce Sohn, Halio CEO.
The addition of smart glass expands Marvin’s offerings, as the company aims to provide more solutions for modern living.
