Light Blocking Louver Blinds
CMC

Light blocking louver blinds are adjustable and dynamic systems which either block solar radiation from entering the room or reflect it back outside, thus decreasing glare and solar gains.

Technologies included:
External Venetian Blinds   |   Genius Slats for Venetian Blinds   |   Internal Venetian Blinds
 

 
Light Control Glazings
CMC

Light control glazings include a layer of microscopic crystalline structures. These structures are transparent but create the appearance of color through constructive and destructive interference with light waves. They can also be used to concentrate light in microscopic arrays.

Technologies included:
Photonic Crystals
 

 
Light Diffracting Films
CMC

Light diffracting films consist of a diffraction pattern applied with a photographic process onto a gel. This pattern redirects light deep into the room with great specificity, and more than one pattern (and thus, more than one light directing scheme) can be printed on one layer. They are more effective for direct sunlight than diffuse light.

Technologies included:
Holographic Film
 

 
Light Emitting Glazings
CMC

Light emitting glazings absorb light, both natural and artificial, when it is available, then re-emit light when a space becomes dark.

Technologies included:
Veluna Glass
 

 
Light Guiding Facade
CMC

See other listing.

Technologies included:
 

 
Light Guiding Facade
CMC

A description of this category will be provided here.

Technologies included:
Photoconductive Facade Project
 

 
Light Guiding Glass-Embedded Blinds
CMC

Light guiding glass-embedded blinds are adjustable and dynamic systems which block solar radiation from entering the room to decrease glare and solar gains. They are encased in a glass unit to limit maintenance and protect the shading elements.

Technologies included:
ControLite Diffusing Louver System   |   Ecklite Panel   |   Light Louver System   |   Okasolar Panel   |   RETROFlexTherm Technology   |   RETROLuxTherm Technology   |   Vision Control Panel
 

 
Light Guiding Glass-Embedded Systems
CMC

Light guiding glass-embedded systems are fixed systems which redirect daylight and more specifically sunlight - toward the ceiling, decreasing glare and increasing light penetration in the room.

Technologies included:
Light Channeling Panel   |   Lumitop Panel   |   Soralux
 

 
Light Guiding Louver Blinds
CMC

Light guiding louver blinds redirect high-angle sunlight toward the ceiling to increase natural light penetration into a space.

Technologies included:
RETROFlex Technology   |   RETROLux Technology   |   Vertical Louver Blinds
 

 
Light Guiding Reflectors
CMC

Light guiding reflectors are assemblies of reflective elements that redirect light more deeply into a space. They typically have an ornamental function as well.

Technologies included:
Chandeliers
 

 
Light Shelves
CMC

Light shelves are fixed architectural elements installed in the top sections of windows. They are intended to reflect high-angle sunlight toward the ceiling, thus increasing light penetration into the room, while shading viewers from direct sunlight and potential glare.

Technologies included:
Light Shelves
 

 
Light-deflecting Skylight Glazings
CMC

Light-deflecting skylight glazings deflect high-angle sunlight, usually a problem in the middle of the day and during the summer, while admitting diffuse light and low-angle light, usually available at the beginning and end of the day and during the winter.

Technologies included:
Angular Selective Skylight   |   Prismatic Skylights
 

 
Low-Emissivity Films
CMC

Low-emissivity films, when added to building glazings, increase the amount of thermal radiation that is reflected from the glass, rather than absorbed and re-emitted. This results in less heat transfer through the glass.

Technologies included:
Low-E Glazings
