Smart Windows Automatically Adjust to Outdoor Temperature to Save Energy
The Raven Window material is a thermo-reflective coating that is applied to the inside surface of the outer pane of glass in a double-glazed window assembly. The material is somewhat like glasses that darken when you step outside into brighter conditions. Although darker, the material is more thermally reflective, so that heat is kept out of the building during hotter times of year, but is transparent, and lets heat and light through when the temperature is colder. Better yet, unlike some other technologies, the transformation is automatic, and requires no electricity or controls.
