Airbus Now Offering Gentex Dimmable Aircraft Windows

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 06, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today at CES 2020, Gentex Corporation (NASDAQ: GNTX), the worlda??s leading supplier of electronically dimmable windows (EDWs) for the aerospace industry, announced that Airbus is now offering the Companya??s latest generation of electrochromic windows on its aircraft. More details of the roll-out will be revealed this spring.
The EDWs will allow passengers to selectively darken the aircraft windows as desired while still enabling them to view the scenery outside. Not only do these EDWs eliminate the need for traditional window shades, but they also incorporate a heat control solution which blocks infra-red energy from entering the cabin from outside a?? thus lessening dependence on air-conditioning systems. Gentex EDWs feature high-speed transition between clear and dark and a new ultra-dark low-end transmission. Compared to previous designs, the latest EDWs darken twice as fast and become 100 times darker, effectively eliminating more than 99.999% of visible light.The Airbus EDWs were uniquely designed to be one, single line-replaceable unit in order to make installation and maintenance easier. They also feature a longer-lasting, scratch-resistant dust cover.a??We worked together with Airbus to integrate the latest dimmable windows technology while further enhancing it with an additional specialty coating,a?? said Gentex President and Chief Executive Officer Steve Downing. a??The windows benefit aircraft operators and passengers alike, which ultimately enhances the user experience for everyone on board.a??
