Korea Land Development Building featuring Suntuitive Dynamic Glass

Suntuitive Glass was specified by the iconic award-winning firm of Simyung Architects. Their introduction to Pleotint and Suntuitive Glass came after a seminar hosted by Pleotint’s Korean fabrication partner Jasan Glass Korea.

Pleotint, LLC, the world’s premier producer of thermo-chromic, self-tinting glass is now in the final stages of completing a groundbreaking project in South Korea with their Suntuitive® Glass line. The Korea Land Development Exhibit Building in Seoul is almost complete and it features the innovation and advancement that Suntuitive Dynamic Glass brings.

According to Pleotint’s Daniel Lee, the need for advanced materials plays perfectly with the performance of Suntuitive Glass.

“The Korean Government is mandating changes to improving building efficiencies including solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC). Suntuitive Glass is an excellent application to improve the energy efficiencies needed and it was a great way for the building to be “future proof” as it relates to the advancing of codes there.”

The Korea Land Development Exhibit Building is owned by the government and will stand as an example of the sort of building performances they want to see going forward. Suntuitive Glass when paired with low-e glass in an insulating glass unit, S provides the best overall performance for U-value and solar heat gain. Suntuitive Glass can also produce visible light transmittance of as high as 60 percent in a clear state, solar heat gain coefficients of as low as 0.11 in a darkened state, and reduce heating-, cooling-, and lighting-related energy costs.

Suntuitive Glass was specified by the iconic award-winning firm of Simyung Architects. Their introduction to Pleotint and Suntuitive Glass came after a seminar hosted by Pleotint’s Korean fabrication partner Jasan Glass Korea. The combination of a difference making product and one of Korea’s largest glass fabricators made for an excellent match.

“We are fortunate to have such a great partner in Korea, and this project surely sets the tone for so many more to come. We’ve been overwhelmed with interest and the building is not even completed yet,” added Lee.

The Korea Land Development Exhibit Building is expected to officially open in December of 2016.
