Isoclima To Exhibit Its SPD-Smart CromaLite Marine Glass At The 2011 Marine Equipment Trade Show
November 11, 2011 – Research Frontiers (Nasdaq: REFR) licensee Isoclima S.p.A. will exhibit its CromaLite brand of SPD-SmartGlass at the 2011 Marine Equipment Trade Show (METS) being held November 15-17, 2011 at the Amsterdam RAI Convention Centre in The Netherlands. Isoclima’s stand (N10 Stand 508) will be located in the METS SuperYacht Pavilion.
CromaLite is Isoclima’s SPD-Smart solar control glazing product and enables users to efficiently control the transmitted solar radiation in both the visible and the solar range. Two versions of CromaLite are offered by Isoclima – CromaLite Dark and CromaLite Light. CromaLite Dark can block over 99.5% of incoming visible light, while CromaLite Light offers higher levels of light transmission when fully clear. CromaLite products are tested in accordance with the CENELEC European Standards.
The CromaLite panel Isoclima will exhibit at METS 2011 measures 3.6 x 2.3 feet (700 x 1,100 mm) and has been specifically designed for marine applications to reflect a large part of infrared radiation. Because of this fabrication, the air conditioning system of the yacht or boat can be sized for smaller power requirements, thus achieving lower energy consumption and reduced CO2 emissions. More information about Isoclima is available from the company’s website.
METS is the world’s largest trade exhibition of equipment, materials and systems for the international marine leisure industry. The show is targeted to yacht builders, naval architects, repair yards, distributors, dealers, wholesalers, captains, marina operators and equipment manufacturers from throughout the world. METS 2011 has more than 1,250 exhibitors and is expected to attract nearly 20,000 attendees from over 100 countries. More information is available from the event website.
When Research Frontiers’ patented SPD-Smart light-control technology is used in yacht windows and other products, users can precisely control or “tune” the amount of light, glare and heat coming through their windows, while preserving their view. Use of SPD-SmartGlass also enhances security and privacy.
SPD-Smart technology offers the widest dynamic range of light-control. It provides full-time protection from harmful UV radiation, as well as high levels of heat-control. This protects artwork, furnishings and interiors, as well as the passengers and crew of vessels. Also, because lighting conditions and reflected glare off of the water are constantly changing as boats move and change course, it is important to have windows that can dynamically manage these changing conditions to maximize passenger comfort, control glare and preserve views. Only SPD-Smart technology can provide this “real-time” solution due to its ability to react instantly.
SPD-Smart products – windows, skylights, curtainwalls, partitions, sunroofs and more – are precisely tunable to an infinite number of light transmission states regardless of window size, and easily adapt to individual preferences using control devices ranging from basic dimmer switches and photosensors to those that are integrated into a building’s or vehicle’s intelligent control system. These unequalled performance characteristics help optimize energy savings and human comfort, protect interiors, and offer the opportunity for highly innovative design solutions.
