Kinestral Technologies Inc., developer and manufacturer of Halio smart-tinting glass, announced that the company has partnered with Vitrum Glass Group to produce Halio insulating glass units (IGUs) for commercial projects in North America. According to the announcement, these projects will use more than 100,000 square feet of Halio smart-tinting glass produced at Kinestral’s large-scale Taiwan manufacturing facility. Vitrum Glass Group will begin delivery of the Halio IGUs to these initial projects in the coming weeks.

The partnership marks a notable milestone in the deployment of Halio to commercial building and residential markets. It combines the high-volume Halio glass production capability of Kinestral with Vitrum’s large-scale IGU manufacturing capacity to service large numbers of customers in North America, according to the announcement.

“Halio is the most exciting glass product to come to market in decades, and we’re excited to have been selected to build and deliver the first Halio IGUs in North America,” says Thomas Martini, president of Vitrum Glass Group.

“Halio is the best performing, most beautiful smart-tinting glass product on the market. Our Taiwan factory is now producing large volumes of Halio with the highest level of quality for customers throughout the world,” adds S.B. Cha, CEO of Kinestral. “Vitrum shares the same dedication to quality as Kinestral, so we look forward to growing our relationship and delivering on additional projects in North America in the months ahead.”
