“We’re excited about the impact we're going to have on the environment by giving the glass industry this dynamic technology.”
Denver, CO (PRWEB) March 08, 2013
Denver-based RavenBrick (http://www.ravenbrick.com) is pleased to announce that the United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued several patents to the company recently. The patents were granted for the following technology:
- Multicolor light emitting device incorporating tunable quantum confinement devices.
- Thermally switched optical filter incorporating a guest-host architecture.
- Thermally switched absorptive window shutter.
- Thermally switched optical downconverting filter.
- Thermally switched reflective optical shutter.
This proprietary technology is applicable to the commercial and residential glass and glazing products where RavenBrick delivers an industry-leading intelligent, cost effective window filter; it automatically blocks solar heat when the outside temperature is too hot, while allowing solar heat inside when the outside temperature is cold. RavenBrick smart-window filters use no electricity, wiring or control systems. They can cut building owners’ energy costs and consumption by as much as 30 percent, meanwhile making interior spaces more comfortable by reducing overheating, drafting and glare.
“We are pleased that our extensive patent estate and intellectual property portfolio is continuing to grow. With our new state of the art manufacturing facility gearing up, we are looking forward to supplying the glass and glazing industry with materials that feature the most advanced technology available on the market today,” said Alex Burney, CEO of RavenBrick. “We’re excited about the impact we're going to have on the environment by giving the glass industry this dynamic technology.”
In addition, RavenBrick also announced one additional patent that has been allowed but not yet issued for low-emissivity window films and coatings incorporating nanoscale wire grids. Since the start of 2012, RavenBrick has had a total of 164 issued and allowed claims for its innovative technologies.
Founded in 2006, RavenBrick is a Denver-based materials science company that has developed patented and patents-pending thermochromic filter technology to manage solar heat gain in windows. As buildings are responsible for 40% of the energy used in North America, the ability to manage solar heat gain in windows, the area of the biggest waste of heating and air conditioning, is essential to upgrading the building's thermal performance in a cost effective way.
