JENISON, Mich., December 5, 2017 – Pleotint, LLC, has announced a distribution partnership with Portella Steel Doors and Windows, which enables the Austin, TX–based company to offer Suntuitive® glass with its steel doors and windows.
Portella puts a significant focus on energy efficiency and offering products with Suntuitive Dynamic Glass will continue their efforts.
“Our offerings are built to exceed industry standards from quality to energy, so it was a natural option for us to offer a high performing and innovative product like Suntuitive,” said Marti Medina, President & CEO of Portella. “Suntuitive glass is the perfect choice for the extreme climate conditions where a view cannot be comprised and where our thermally broken steel doors and windows excel.”
Suntuitive Glass can lower costs associated with air conditioning, artificial lighting and heating, which is up to 50% of a building’s total energy consumption, as well as enable a building’s heating and cooling systems to be significantly downsized.
“We also liked the other benefits of Suntuitive Glass. It is great with glare reduction allowing the occupant not to lose the views from outside and it’s a sustainable product,” Medina added. “Portella is an eco-friendly company and it is a priority for us to work with like-minded organizations.”
Suntuitive Glass utilizes heat from direct sunlight and is completely off the grid. Since there are no wires or electrical devices the system is durable and maintenance-free. In addition, Suntuitive high-performance glass presents opportunities to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions from building operation and can contribute toward LEED certification.
“We are thrilled to have Portella on board with us. They have incredible products, an excellent reputation, and their dealer network is extremely respected,” said Chuck Kuchinick, Vice President of Sales for Pleotint.
