Marvin to Bring Halio Smart-Tinting Glass to Residential Market
The collaboration between Marvin and Halio will bring Smart-tinting glass to the residential construction market as homeowners demand design, comfort, flexibility, privacy, and control, as well as energy efficiency.
Marvin, a premium window, door, and skylight manufacturer, announced today an agreement with Halio, Inc., the developer, and manufacturer of Halio smart-tinting glass.
This collaboration enables Marvin and Halio to bring the smart glass to the residential construction market by combining the high-quality window and door products that Marvin is known for with Halio’s unique glazing solution.
Paul Marvin, CEO of Marvin Windows and Doors in a statement, “We are truly committed to well-being at Marvin, focused on providing solutions that support happier and healthier living through maximizing light, air, and views in new ways.”
“This partnership is the newest in a series of product introductions designed for emerging ways of living. 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. We could not be more excited to partner to bring this advanced technology to architects and building professionals who design for homeowners’ well-being.” Marvin continued.
Halio, the architectural smart glass technology leader, combines the most advanced electrochromic technologies with a powerful, secure, and simple-to-integrate cloud-based system, allowing the glass to tint automatically or on command.
Critically, Halio achieves its darkest shade in just three minutes, adapting to changes in light through seamlessly smooth transitions that culminate in a lovely neutral color when tinted.
Halio’s ability to respond to a rapidly changing environment allows it to maximize the amount of natural light entering a space while excluding excessive heat and glare.
Finally, Halio creates a more comfortable environment and promotes indoor health and well-being while achieving the highest levels of energy efficiency.
Marvin will bring this technology into an entirely new residential application through its new joint venture with Halio, whereas it was previously only available in commercial construction.
As a result, homeowners can anticipate a more harmonious connection to the outdoors, with Halio providing both form and function to ensure a clutter-free, controlled indoor lighting experience.
“Halio has spent years developing the world’s most responsive, intelligent platform for daylight management. We’ve realized a solution that integrates all the necessary attributes to finally go mainstream, and now that we have it, the smart glass market is at a long-awaited inflection point,” said Bruce Sohn, CEO of Halio.
“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.” Sohn added.
Marvin approaches innovation from a human-centered standpoint, investigating the evolution of home living in order to provide people-first products and solutions.
As a result, the Marvin Skycove, an immersive glass alcove, and the Marvin Awaken Skylight, a smart skylight, have recently been added to the company’s extensive window and door portfolio.
These solutions, which are both firsts in the US building industry, provide homeowners with new opportunities for improved indoor experiences.
The addition of smart glass to the company’s offerings broadens its offerings, providing even more solutions for modern living.
