RavenWindow Self Tint Windows


RavenWindow™ is the company’s signature product. This adaptive smart-window for use in commercial, residential and industrial buildings uses RavenBrick's thermochromic technology. It reflects the sun's heat outside when it's hot, and lets the sunshine in when it's cool. It saves up to 30 percent on heating and cooling year round, without using electricity or hard-wired control systems. Besides reducing energy consumption and costs, RavenWindow is easy-to-install, can be retrofitted to fit existing frames and improves the temperate and light-glare comfort for people inside the building.

In its natural state, RavenWindow delivers a clear view of the outside. when the exterior temperature becomes too hot the window darkens, making a near-instant transition. Product will be available 2nd quarter 2012. RavenWindow™ has been installed at the Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in the agency’s cutting edge headquarters building in Golden, Colorado.
