View Glass, smart glass that had been installed in the Santa Clara, CA facility that will house the Super Bowl in 2016. This is another example of the innovative ways that makes this Super Bowl facility different. This facility is LEED certified, and if you know anything about the green LEED certification you know that accomplishing this certification is no easy task.
We can all do our part in conserving energy, water and environmental impact, even if you don’t reach a LEED certification. Commercial properties can replace cooling towers with geothermal to avoid the coming water rate hikes at the same time saving on heating and cooling your buildings. Residential owners can replace their aging existing heating and cooling units that are inefficient and many of them contain Chlorodifluoromethane or difluoromonochloromethane refrigerant (that is very harmful to the environment and was banned by the EPA) also known as HCFC-22 or R-22.

MILPITAS, Calif.–View®, the leader in dynamic glass, today announced that its smart windows have been installed at Levi’s® Stadium, the home of the San Francisco 49ers. Located in Santa Clara, Calif., this 18-month-old iconic facility continues to demonstrate leadership in technology, sustainability, and fan experience by incorporating market-leading, innovative technologies like View Dynamic Glass.
The installation of View Dynamic Glass underscores the commitment of Levi’s® Stadium to maintaining a leading-edge, environmentally responsible stadium to continually enhance the fan experience. Levi’s® Stadium became the first stadium of its kind to open with LEED Gold certification. Approximately sixty percent of the attendees of all events at Levi’s® Stadium will see the dynamic glass as they ascend the Gate A escalators to take their seats.
“Levi’s Stadium was built to be a manifestation of the Bay Area and Silicon Valley, and the 49ers organization has made every effort to be a leader in technology and sustainability,” said San Francisco 49ers CEO Jed York. “We continuously invest significant time and effort to enhance the in-game experience. View Dynamic Glass is a perfect fit for us to ensure that we show our fans and the world what’s possible.”
View Dynamic Glass maximizes natural light and provides unobstructed views while reducing heat and glare. Unlike traditional glass, View Dynamic Glass tints automatically in response to outdoor conditions or manually via a mobile device, providing greater occupant comfort and energy savings without ever compromising the view. View has installed its dynamic windows in more than 175 projects across North America, with more than 100 more installations currently underway.
“Levi’s Stadium delivers a superior fan experience through technology and innovation, and that aligns perfectly with View’s mission and goals,” said Rao Mulpuri, CEO of View. “This installation is a great showcase of the technology, sustainability and wellness benefits that View delivers. We’re excited to partner with an organization that is strongly committed to setting the standard for modern stadiums.”
