SageGlass®, the world’s smartest electrochromic glass, will be installed at the new SCHEELS superstore in Johnstown, Colo. The 250,000-square-foot destination sporting goods store and entertainment venue will feature a total of 24,500 square feet of dynamic SageGlass, a product of Saint-Gobain, in skylights throughout the store, as well as the grand entrance. SageGlass will control sunlight in the superstore in order to provide a comfortable experience for the customers that will enjoy the 95 specialty shops and family-friendly entertainment that will all be housed under one roof. The Johnstown SCHEELS is slated to open in September 2017. SageGlass was selected for this project due to its ability to dynamically control sunlight to optimize daylight, outdoor views and comfort while preventing glare, fading and overheating without the need for blinds or shades. With electronically tintable SageGlass, SCHEELS will be able to control the indoor environment and create a comfortable store for its customers.

SageGlass will allow us to maintain a connection to the beautiful Colorado landscape and the daylight while inside the store, but without the negative effects of the sun and the need for energy-intensive HVAC,” said Jason Loney, Vice President of Store Development...
