The $20B Residential Window Market Just Got Cleaner

Glass Dyenamics Enters $20 Billion Residential Window Market, The Industry’s First Dynamic Glass Product Offering

With an accessible and revolutionary consumer user experience, dynamic glass makes it possible for everyone to be part of the global net zero story

Tucson, Ariz.Glass Dyenamics, the world’s leading dynamic glass developer, today announced the commercialization of its breakthrough, patented, dynamic glass technology for the residential front entryway market, making the company the first and only electrochromic manufacturer to prioritize sales to the residential market. This reality is the result of fundamental advanced materials breakthroughs which open up a new and vast opportunity for climate impact.

The company’s first product offerings, available for order on its website, include Craftsman-style front door and other custom front entryway products based on customer requests. Custom products include those in varied sizes or those with custom external reflected and internal transmitted colors which represents a dynamic glass industry first. All products come with a warranty similar to that of other popular entryway building products.

The advent of the residential cleantech movement has largely been symbolized by the emergence of rooftop solar, which has resulted in the creation of several massive and highly valuable companies — Sunrun ($9B), Sunpower ($4B), etc. Yet despite these companies’ customer utility-bill-savings value proposition, consumer adoption of rooftop solar has been incredibly slow, with less than one percent penetration outside of California and Hawaii. Fundamental homeowner economic hurdles impede rooftop solar mass adoption including the exorbitant upfront costs, the long payback period, and customer risk exposure to utility rate changes.

Glass Dyenamics solves these problems through offering homeowners, in addition to a window system, the same customer value proposition as rooftop solar with significantly more measurable value, at a fraction of the upfront cost, and with higher subjective value. Glass Dyenamics creates glass panels that tint and untint upon application of an electric charge that homeowners can remotely control through a mobile app or wall switch. Its glass offers consumers a fundamentally new and advanced user experience with light and daytime privacy control, all while being the industry’s most energy efficient product.

While dynamic glass isn’t a brand new concept, Glass Dyenamics’ commercial vision and technical approach are unique. The company’s CEO and co-founder, Christopher Angelo, is a Wall St. veteran and former solar manufacturing executive. The Company’s technical co-founders, Anoop Agrawal and John Cronin, are named co-inventors on over 36 automobile auto dimming mirror inventions and original contributors to the industry’s leading durability standard ASTM E-2141. Co-founder and Chairwoman, Maha Achour, is a Forbes 50 Vision List member.

Regarding durability, Glass Dyenamics’ glass has achieved over 50,000 cycles under ASTM E-2141 durability conditions, which elevates the Company to one of four electrochromic companies in the world to have achieved this milestone.

“Glass Dyenamics’ mission is for everyone to be a part of the clean energy story. We deliver on the promise through fundamental technical breakthroughs and a relentless focus on unit level economics. Most customers and investors don’t realize that electrochromic technology can be affordable and highly profitable; they’ve literally been looking at this reality in the mirror for the last 30 years,” said Angelo. “We seek to provide customers with a durable product as well as a Tesla-like ‘X-factor’ user experience by offering tintable glass to the residential home market for the first time. The way we see it, there’s no other home energy efficiency or cleantech 2.0 product that can elicit that kind of emotion. The closest product we can think of is an EV which, like a window, is a consumer ‘need to have.’ We thank our strategic partners, including the US Department of Energy, for reaching this milestone.”

Glass Dyenamics’ patent portfolio includes 24 patents covering its device structure and materials, product recycling, and key product attributes and applications.

Customers can order or reserve glass by submitting their door design specification to Glass Dyenamics. The company currently offers installation services in the San Francisco Bay Area; Bend, OR, and Tucson, AZ. For more information, visit dyenamics.com.
