Post Time:Jul 07,2010Classify:Industry NewsView:76

Sage Electrochromics Inc., Faribault, Minn., has partnered with Advanced Building Solutions,Detroit,David Adamson Sales Inc., Uxbridge, Mass.,and Designbasis Inc., St. Cloud, Fla., to market and sell SageGlass products in North America, according to a July 7 release.SageGlass uses a nanotechnology-developed coating to change tint in response to changing sunlight and heat conditions, significantly reducing energy consumed for air conditioning, heating and lighting. Sage’s newest product, announced in March, is the first to combine tintable dynamic glass with high R-value triple-pane construction, setting a new energy performance standard for the building industry. Advanced Building Solutions will cover the metropolitan Detroit area, Dave Adamson Sales will support the northeast market and Designbasis will be responsible for Florida. The three firms will market and sell the entire line of SageGlass products in the commercial, institutional and residential building construction markets. “We are seeing a strong demand for our dynamic glass in the U.S. market, and are extremely pleased to have partners of this caliber representing our products,” said Jeremy Kaeding, North American sales manager for Sage, in the release. “Each company has an outstanding reputation for their knowledge of our industry and their consultative approach with customers. These firms have the experience to effectively communicate the Sage value proposition to architects, building owners and contractors."A key driver for Sage products is the potential energy savings more efficient windows can generate. According to researchers at the DOE’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory, highly insulated, electronically tintable windows can save up to 5 percent of the U.S. energy budget. This potential energy savings is equivalent to more than 160 gigawatts of electricity generated annually by fossil fuels, and could result in a 300 million metric ton reduction in CO2 emissions, according to the release.
