SAF-GLAS is our exclusive provider for tornado, hurricane and ballistic glazing. Their patented inner-layer offers strength of adhesion not matched in the industry today. And SAF-GLAS has now found a way to add nano-particles to this adhesive – without sacrificing strength – and turn the light passing through their window glass into electricity. This is a real game changer!

     Survivalite Impact Window Systems can now offer this new capability to any and all of our tornado, hurricane and ballistic customers. And with current green energy rebate laws, this can often result in a cost savings for the entire project.

     How much power does this generate? Enough to provide most – if not all – of the building’s power requirements. Typically, this generates two to three watts of 15 VDC power per square foot of exposed glazing. And this works with any kind of light passing through the glazing in either direction. This power can be converted to AC and returned to the grid and/or wired directly in DC electronics. It is surprising how much of a building already uses 12-15 VDC power: laptops, LED lighting, security and camera systems, cell phones, and even microwave ovens and refrigerators can all be run directly off this new power source.

     EnergyGlass™ is fully UL rated and ready for market today.

A transparent, passive glass system for the collection and production of electricity from light!

EnergyGlass™ is a transparent laminated glass system which can be simply integrated into most building window designs to produce electricity.

The EnergyGlass™ system continually collects and creates electricity from sunlight, diffused light and artificial light.

DC electricity produced from EnergyGlass™ can be inverted and returned to the grid, used to charge batteries and/or be wired directly to DC electronics.

DC electricity produced from EnergyGlass™ can be inverted and returned to the grid and / or charge batteries and / or be wired directly to DC electronics, as well as offering a value-added solution for power independence from the main electrical grid.

EnergyGlass™ has the ability to produce (1-2) watts per square foot for (10-12) hours during the day and (3-4) watts per square foot at peak (dependent on location). EnergyGlass™ has a standard low-cost construction and is also bomb blast, security, impact and high-wind-pressure resistant.

Installation of EnergyGlass™ is very field friendly and is similar in nature to installation of normal laminated glass. EnergyGlass™ can incorporate many types of different glass and makeups inclusive of tints, Low E, insulated, SAF-GLAS IR film, reflective, glass ceramic and most other types and makeups. EnergyGlass™ is designed for windows, doors, transoms, side lights, sky lights, glass rooms and any other design where transparency, protection or electrical production are mandated.

EnergyGlass™ gives added value to your property.

Energy Glass Puts Thomas Edison's Vision Back on the Table

by Bill Sudlow

As electrical technology advanced in the latter half of the 19th century, scientists and engineers were racing to develop the most efficient means of providing electric power to buildings. Thomas Edison, a pioneer in this arena as he was in many others, favored a direct current (dc) solution over one featuring alternating current (ac). As Edison saw it, a dc design was safer and easier to distribute than an ac solution, with motors that operated with more starting torque and greater efficiency and lacked that annoying 60 Hz "buzz" associated with ac systems.

Edison met with early success as he lit up neighborhoods in London and New York with his dc design, but efforts to expand exposed the system's significant drawback: it required a dc generating source within a mile of the final destination to be effective, while ac power could be distributed over long distances using transformers. In the interests of expediency, the advantages of dc power within a building were sacrificed to support large area transmission efficiency outside the buildings. Fast-forward to today: EnergyGlass™ transforms light into dc power. A pane of EnergyGlass might power an LED lamp. Sheathe an entire structure in EnergyGlass and you've created a potent dc power generator. Twelve decades after Edison's pioneering efforts, dc power delivery is back on the table. And just in time; while many building systems rely on ac power, the devices we use every day are already on low-level dc power. Converting ac power to the dc power they consume wastes a lot of energy.

A modern building equipped with EnergyGlass promises to deliver power directly to every dc system in the building: laptops, computer routers, cell phones, landlines, LED lighting, security systems, and even coffee pots and microwaves, with energy to spare. Excess power might be stored for later use, converted to ac power for the balance of the building's energy needs or sold back to the utilities for a profit—especially when the building is not in use. It's not hard to imagine transitioning all internal ac systems to dc power over time.

Energy Glass is a real game-changer. Edison would have loved it.

President, Survivalite Impact Systems

During his 34-year career as an electrical engineer and leader at Lockheed Martin, Bill Sudlow served as head of Research and Development for Navy Systems and Chief Engineer for the U.S. Navy's Vertical Launching System (VLS). He was awarded Engineer of the Year for making VLS a universal launcher capable of firing anti-air, missile defense, anti-ship, anti-submarine, and land attach (Tomahawk) missiles without launcher modifications, changing forever the Navy's flexibility and firepower for battles at sea.

Bill is now president of Survivalite Impact Systems. His top-of-the line windows and doors provide protection against EF-5 tornadoes and Category 5 hurricanes, as well as explosions and ballistics. EnergyGlass green energy capabilities can be added to all of the company's offerings.
