HALIO-Solar control smart glass
Elegance, comfort and smart design
Halio smart-tinting glass is so advanced that windows start tinting within seconds to provide shade and glare relief. Whether it's a window, skylight, or partition, Halio allows you to precisely control how much natural light to let through. Halio is fully programmable to tune with your personal preferences.
Halio is the world's most advanced natural light management system, a complete solution comprising the glass itself, a control system, exclusive algorithms and a cloud-based connection enabling the system to adapt to the building's specific needs.
Halio lets in natural light, transforming living and working spaces into havens of light. And if it gets too bright, Halio can be darkened to let in just the right amount of light: from very light tints to nearly opaque. Transitions are smooth, silent and fast (under three minutes). The tinting starts instantly and can be stopped whenever the desired shade is reached. Halio blocks outs direct solar glare and scales down incoming energy for optimal comfort. With Halio, occupants remain connected to the outside environment and enjoy a completely unobstructed and invigorating view. At its darkest, Halio offers a degree of privacy simply unimaginable with conventional glass. When used for partitions, it can create open rooms that can go from bathed in light to private at any time; an ideal solution for meeting rooms and private offices.
In its clear state, Halio looks absolutely identical to conventional glass. Halio is made with extra-clear glass to deliver superb neutrality and transparency, yielding a high colour rendering index of 97%, letting in maximum levels of natural light and ensuring perfect colour rendering. The colour rendering is maintained even at very low light transmission levels, creating private spaces with a neutral ambiance in which colours are not distorted. Architects are free to design inspiring creations in which glass plays a major role, with harmonious and pure lines, free of blinds, shutters or invasive conventional solar shading systems.
Halio is very easy for the user to control using a wireless, intuitive and networked interface: switch, app, voice command. Halio can also be integrated into building management systems and home automation systems. With its exclusive algorithms, Halio can automatically adjust to the building's specific needs while taking account of multiple criteria, such as the building's function, its location, the orientation of its facades, and weather conditions. Halio features a remote centralised management system enabling users to evaluate the status of system components in real time so as to ensure automated, proactive and responsive operation.
Halio is the result of the latest technological advances and is protected by 56 patents. It can significantly increase the rental and resale value of the building. Halio delivers savings of up to 22% on heating, ventilation, air conditioning and lighting. Halio can also help obtain points in building certification systems (HQE, LEED, BREEAM, WELL).
