Dec. 23, 2020 - Shade automation helps improve productivity by reducing glare and solar heat gain, while still allowing natural daylight and views to the outside.
When we introduced our IntelliFlex® I/O scalable, automated shade control system, we knew we were onto something good. IntelliFlex I/O is highly customizable and can grow and adapt as needs change without replacing existing hardware and wiring, providing a scalable automation solution ideal for projects no matter how big or complex.
Our initial excitement at the power of I/O has been confirmed by recognition from two leading architectural publications. IntelliFlex I/O has been named a Record Products winner by Architectural Record, and has also received a Product Innovation Award from Architectural Products Magazine.
Both publications recognized the system’s scalability and flexibility. In particular, judges were impressed by the many ways IntelliFlex I/O can be used to automate shading systems:
"Automated technology is definitely unique compared to other systems on the market." (Architectural Products)
IntelliFlex I/O can be proactive, reactive, or a combination of both. It automates shading systems through a variety of methods, and by using sensors can respond quickly to changing conditions. I/O can also integrate with lighting or other systems. This combination of proactive and reactive capabilities puts a building’s shades where they need to be to best promote thermal and visual comfort and keep occupant productivity from lagging due to glare or heat gain from sitting in unshaded sunlight.
