Frequently Asked Questions
How does the eyrise® technology work?
eyrise® is powered by licrivision® liquid crystal material for dynamic glass from Merck KGaA Darmstadt, Germany. It is a transparent liquid crystal mixture with tailored dye molecules. This mixture is applied between two glass panes coated with an invisible conductive layer. When low voltage is applied, the molecules in the mixture alter their orientation and regulate the amount of light and heat that passes through.
Can eyrise® help me to earn green certification?
Yes. As eyrise® improves your building’s energy efficiency and comfort, it can contribute towards most environmental certifications. Our team can support you on the documentation and specific requirements needed.
What is eyrise®?
eyrise® is a switchable architecture glass system driven by Licrivision® liquid crystal (LC) technology. LC mixtures between glass panes can switch when voltage is applied. This changes the appearance from dark to bright for eyrise® Solar Shading and from translucent to transparent for eyrise® Privacy Glazing. Licrivision® and eyrise® are brands belonging to Merck KGaA, Darmstadt Germany.
What are the energy benefits of eyrise® Solar Shading?
eyrise® not only filters incoming sunlight, but also solar heat gains to prevent overheating of the interior space. This will reduce the need for air conditioning and lighting. This results in reduced overall energy usage and cooling costs. Compared to standard sun-blind or louvered systems, eyrise® also offers reduced maintenance, mechanical breakdown and electromotor power.
