P r o d u c t s T A he growing importance of energy efficiency and sustainability has given birth to new generations of products and technologies available in the marketplace. A sampling is included here. A Concrete Building system The Gulf Concrete Technology (gCT) concrete building system is hurricane, earthquake, termite and flood resistant. The gCT insulated Concrete Panel system is made up of an electro-welded wire mesh enclosing an expanded polystyrene core. These panels and steel meshes are covered and finished on site with high strength concrete mortar forming a solid, energy efficient and durable construction. HPB.hotims.com/37996--163 B insulated Panel system Firestone unA-foAm™ insulated metal Panel system offers aesthetic appeal, excellent thermal efficiency, ease of installation and structural durability. The system provides higher insulation value than traditional cladding systems. The unAfoAm system features concealed fasteners and several panel thicknesses and widths. The panels can be installed horizontally or vertically as a single element, allowing for quicker construction without compromising the integrity of the system. it is available in a range of materials, profiles, colors and finishes.

B C D C Automatic lighting Control MechoSystems and Encelium Technologies have partnered to create mecholuxTm, a comprehensive lighting and shade-control solution. it combines mechosystems’ solarTrac® Windowmanagement® with encelium’s energy Control system™ (eCs™), combining daylight harvesting and artificial lighting to provide optimum levels of occupant comfort and energy savings. mecholux allows a building’s occupants to keep outside views while being shielded from heat, glare and brightness. solarTrac is a software-based control system that automatically adjusts window shades to adapt to solar and weather conditions. lighting control is achieved through an energy Control unit (eCu), which serves as the central intelligence point for the areas it controls. The unit works with solarTrac to set appropriate brightness levels for each assigned zone. HPB.hotims.com/37996-154 D glazed Windows Windows glazed with sageglass from SAGE Electrochromics can transition from clear to darkly tinted, and to points inbetween. it can be operated manually with a simple wall switch or remote control, or integrated into an automated building management system. sageglass modulates visible light transmission and solar heat gain, and, when tinted, blocks 91% of solar heat gain. The technology provides energy savings and enhances building occupants’ comfort and productivity by providing natural daylight and preserving the occupants’ connection to the outdoors.
