Buildings use 40% of the energy consumed in industrial
countries, and may have an even larger impact in the developing world. Much of
this energy is spent managing heat and light to maintain a comfortable internal
environment for occupants. Over 50% of commercial buildings today still only have
single pane windows.
ITN’s Infrared Reflectance (IRR) low-e film improves on
state-of-the-art window energy management when used by itself or in combination
with ITN’s dynamic electrochromic (EC) window film. ITN has developed a suite
of cost-effective window films to dramatically reduce energy lost through
windows. These films provide an inexpensive solution that can be retrofit to
existing windows or applied to curved glass surfaces after fabrication.
Affordable, low-e film on flexible substrates offer the opportunity
to drastically reduce global energy usage of commercial and residential
buildings. ITN's low cost, versatile product removes the barriers to
application within both new construction and existing buildings.
