Jaguar 85 Foot Yacht at Genoa Boat Show Features Isoclima’s Cromalite® Brand of SPD-SmartGlass
From October 4-12, 2008, visitors to the 48th Genoa International Boat Show in Genoa, Italy will be able to experience the innovative and elegant benefits of SPD-SmartGlass on an 85-foot Jaguar yacht built by Fashion Yachts Group S.r.l.u. of Pisa, Italy.
Isoclima, S.p.A., member of FININD Group and a licensee of Research Frontiers Inc. (Nasdaq: REFR), supplied the Cromalite® brand SPD-SmartGlass for this production yacht. Isoclima’s Cromalite® glass panels, utilizing patented SPD-Smart light-control technology developed by Research Frontiers, allow occupants to instantly and precisely control the amount of light coming through windows, doors, skylights, sunroofs and hatches. SPD-SmartGlass provides an ideal alternative to shades, blinds or curtains, because of its ability to control light, heat and glare without blocking one’s view.
The yacht includes three Cromalite® panels that make up a sliding sunroof system approximately 90 inches in length (2.3 meters) on each side. Visible light and glare coming through the roof can be instantly tuned automatically or by passengers. When tuned to its dark state, the Cromalite® smart glass blocks 99.8% of incoming light, providing relief and protection from the intense light and glare experienced while on the water.
In addition to the control of visible light and glare, Isoclima’s Cromalite® SPD-Smart glass also blocks over 99% of damaging ultraviolet (UV) light that can be unhealthy for passengers and which degrades furnishings, artwork and carpeting. The heat-blocking performance benefits are substantial as well, resulting in a highly energy-efficient system that provides practical as well as elegant and aesthetic benefits.
The Jaguar 85 yacht is located at the Fashion Yachts Group stand – G29. The Genoa Boat Show is one of the world’s premier marine trade events with approximately 1,500 exhibitors and 2,500 boats highlighting the latest designs in yachts, megayachts and sailboats.
