Vision Systems Exhibits Its SPD-Smart Nuance And Noctis Products At Busworld 2011
The “sustainable mobility” benefits of Vision Systems’ SPD-Smart product line will be demonstrated at the bus and coach industry’s premiere event.
October 21, 2011 – Research Frontiers (Nasdaq: REFR) licensee Vision Systems is exhibiting (Booth #4-22) its SPD-Smart™ Nuance and Noctis ground transportation products at Busworld Kortrijk 2011 being held October 21-26, 2011 at the Kortrijk Xpo in Belgium.
Vision Systems’ SPD-Smart Nuance and Noctis products for ground transportation vehicles offer instant and precise light-control at every level which provides original equipment manufacturers and vehicle operators with a solar protection solution that effectively introduces natural light into vehicle cabins, enhances comfort, reduces air conditioning use and supports fuel efficiency.
From October 1 through October 14, Vision Systems’ SPD-Smart aerospace and ground transportation products were exhibited at three leading industry events held in the United States and Europe. More details about the SPD-Smart Naunce and Noctis products from Vision Systems that were exhibited, and the substantial interest they enjoyed, is available in the events’ news release.
Electronically dimmable Nuance and Noctis products – windows, roof shades and partitions – are impact-resistant, offer weight-savings and can add room to cabin interiors. They are completely silent, available in flat and curved surfaces, and can be controlled automatically, by the driver or by passengers. Vision Systems’ Noctis products offer enhanced blackout solar protection and complete privacy.
Made with patented light-control SPD film developed by Research Frontiers, SPD-SmartGlass™ is the world’s fastest-switching variably tintable dynamic glazing technology. It is the only dimmable window technology that gives users the ability to instantly and precisely control the level of shading to any point between very dark and clear. This provides exceptional control over solar energy while also adding to user comfort and protecting interiors. Available in both glass and lightweight polycarbonate substrates, SPD-Smart products – windows, sunroofs, skylights, doors, partitions and more – are laminated glazings that offer a distinctive combination of energy efficiency and security, can be controlled manually or automatically, and are available in custom sizes and fabrications for original equipment, new construction, replacement and retrofit projects.
Now in its 40th year, Busworld Kortrijk is the platform for visitors from all over the world to discover what’s new in the world of buses and coaches. This year’s event features over 50,000 m² of exhibition space and more than 350 exhibitors from over 30 countries worldwide. Promoting the slogan “sustainable mobility,” this year’s Busworld Kortrijk will give special attention to products and enterprises which contribute to the sustainable ambitions and the environmental image of the bus and coach industry. Busworld is highlighting Visions Systems and its SPD-Smart Nuance and Noctis products as proponents of sustainable mobility.
