  • 透明度が変化するIoT調光ガラス、環境に合わせて自動調光も可能に

    Yahoo Japan
    AGCは、「第3回 スマートビルディングEXPO」(「住宅・ビル・施設Week 2018」内、2018年12月12~14日、東京ビッグサイト)に出展し、スマート調光ガラス「ヘイリオ」を前面に出したブース展開を行った。 調光レベル「クリア」と「ダーク」の比較 クラウド接続でBEMSと連携、照度センサーとの組み合わせで自動調光も ヘイリオは、AGCとキネストラル・テクノロジーズ社の合弁販売会社が提供する調光機能を有する透明ガラス。通常のガラス同様にクリアから、可視光線を最大99.9%遮断するダークまで、ムラなく均一に変わるので、ガラスの色を好みの調光レベルに変えることができる。クリアステージは一般的なLow-Eガラスと同じ透明度で、ダークはニュートラルグレーの空間デザインを損なわない色調となっている。 ガラスは、スマート調光デバイスを4mm(ミリ)の高透過熱処理ガラスで挟んだ複層ガラス。まぶしい直射日光をシャットアウトし、屋内に入り込む日差しの熱を大幅に低減。建物の省エネ効果を高め、空調コストの削減も見込める。環境性能評価では、LEEDやBREEAMのポイント獲得につながり、ビルの付加価値がもたらされる。 断熱・遮熱の効果の他にも、プライバシーの保護、一般的にブラインドやカーテンに覆われがちな建物からの眺望確保といったメリットにも期待できる。
  • 3分で切り替わる巨大調光ガラスが光を調節し冷暖房効率向上。最新スマート住設

    Impress Watch
    巨大調光ガラス「ヘイリオ」をリアルタイムで調光 AGC(2018年に旭硝子から社名変更)は、「住宅・ビル・施設Week」のブースで、独自技術による大型の調光ガラス「ヘイリオ」を展示した。 従来の調光ガラスが20分以上かかっていた調光操作を、わずか3分間という短時間で完了できる高速さと、全体が終始均一な色合いのまま調光できる点が特徴。カーテンやブラインドを設置することなく、ガラス単体で室内に届く光の強さをコントロールでき、冷暖房効率の向上、冷暖房コストの削減にも貢献する。 米ベンチャー企業キネストラル・テクノロジーが開発。同社とAGCが設立した合弁会社ヘイリオインターナショナルが日本国内での販売を担う。 2018年10月には、台湾に最大3.0×1.5mサイズの調光ガラスの製造が可能な新工場を設立し、本格生産に入っている。すでに海外では複数の物件に対して納品が完了しており、国内の物件においても2019年春移行から順次納品が始まる予定。展示ブースでは約1.5m四方の巨大なヘイリオ4枚をその場で調光するデモを行なっていた。
