UAE's premium glass processor, Future Architectural Glass, will present the brand new Merck Licrivision product. Dynamically changing the tint of the glass, Merck Licrivision promises to eliminate the need for blinds. Without any mechanical system, it can control automatically the amount of both light and heat influx into a building through the façade.

This is a new entrant to the UAE market: not a single project has been executed with it here yet. We expect a positive market response at the event, as this is an ideal product for architects: it is both energy efficient and colour neutral,” says Firoz Kachwala, Director Future Architectural Glass.
