Kolbe expands smart glass offering

Wausau, Wisconsin (February 2024) – Kolbe Windows & Doors has partnered with Cardinal Glass Industries to integrate CLiC™ On-demand Privacy Glass into a selection of venting and stationary windows, as well as swinging doors.
When activated, CLiC switches from obscured to transparent using a polymer stabilized cholesteric texture (PSCT) liquid crystal technology. Cardinals’ PSCT technology is a direct-to-glass application making it a noteworthy process in its field. Single or multiple windows and doors can be controlled through standard light switches, touch panels or home automation systems.

“Kolbe and Cardinal have a shared dedication to quality and innovation, and CLiC symbolizes that collaboration beautifully,” said Jeff DeLonay, Kolbe’s president. “When incorporated into our products, CLiC allows users to experience reliable and responsive privacy in a variety of applications and environments. Entranceways, bedrooms, bathrooms, home offices, and more can all benefit from the trendsetting capabilities of this technology.”
This switchable glass option is available for VistaLuxe WD LINE direct sets; Ultra Series casements, awnings, direct sets and swinging doors; and Forgent® Series All Glastra® casements, awnings, and direct sets.
