InspecTech Announces Performance Enhancements of Its SPD-Smart iShade Aircraft Cabin Windows

 In News

December 2, 2010. InspecTech Aero Service, Inc., a licensee of Research Frontiers Inc. (NASDAQ: REFR), today announced that its SPD-Smart(TM) iShade(TM) dimmable windows, certified and flying since 2001 on 24 different OEM and aftermarket aircraft models, have been enhanced. iShades, using Research Frontiers’ SPD-Smart light-control film as the core technology, have now been combined with interlayers and other materials to offer an even greater light-transmission in the clear state, more light-blockage in the dark state, and a neutral color tint appearance in intermediate states.
More details about this announcement are available in today’s InspecTech press release.
iShades with SPD-Smart technology instantly regulate light, glare and heat entering the aircraft – from fully clear to completely private, and to any level of view-preserving tint in between. The tint of iShades can be electrically tuned to any level from extremely dark to clear – from each window individually or cabin-wide. These dynamic shades improve passenger comfort and satisfaction, increase security, lower in-cabin noise levels, and protect aircraft interiors by blocking over 99% of harmful UV light and minimizing unwanted solar heat from entering the aircraft when on the ground.
iShades are now flying on general and business aviation, transport category and military aircraft. They are certified and on new production aircraft and helicopters and as aftermarket products as well. They are the first and the only instantly dimmable window system flying today. They are also the only dimmable windows offering 100% privacy.
