Sustainability is not just a trend, it’s the new normal. And it’s one of the greatest problems of our time. How we approach it will affect generations to come.

Today, people everywhere are doing their part to help sustain the environment––from installing solar panels and roof tiles to buying more electric cars and adopting a meatless diet.

Kinestral was founded with the belief that the energy we don’t use is just as important as the energy we use.

What most people don’t realize is that buildings account for 40% of all the energy used in the United States, more than half of which goes towards heating, cooling, and lighting.[1] Globally, buildings and their construction account for 36% of energy use and nearly 40% of all CO2 emissions.[2]

With that in mind, we’ve challenged ourselves to embrace science and new technologies to create a new kind of glass that reduces the impact of buildings on the environment. Halio smart-tinting glass makes it possible for architects and contractors to design and build with the beauty of glass without sacrificing energy efficiency or making aesthetic compromises.
