Buildings are the No. 1 end-users of energy in the US. The majority were built more than 30 years ago with thermally inefficient windows responsible for up to 40% of building energy loss. Replacing them is often not a feasible option due to the associated high costs, building disruption, and long payback.
Inovues offers building owners a cost-effective and non-disruptive retrofit solution to upgrade the windows—whether to bring them up to energy code levels and comply with building efficiency laws or to incorporate the latest window glass technologies and benefit from advanced features like vacuum insulation, energy harvesting, and dynamic tinting and heat gain control.
UPGRADE THE WINDOWS OF YOUR BUILDING WITHOUT REPLACEMENT
INOVUES GLAZING SHIELD™
Inovues has developed a non-intrusive glazing retrofit system that enables the windows and glass facades of buildings to be upgraded without replacement.
Inovues Glazing Shield can be securely mounted on the original glass, from inside or outside, and transform it into a multi-pane insulating glass using a non-intrusive attachment mechanism. The highly compact and lightweight system provides an adaptable glazing platform that can secure many types of high-performance glass to the existing window in a quick and non-invasive installation method.
Inovues Glazing Shields enable most inefficient, single- or double-glazed windows and curtain-walls to be upgraded into high-performing double- or triple-glazed systems, providing up to 10 times higher insulation, without removing, replacing, drilling, or altering any part of them.

BRING YOUR BUILDING UP TO TODAY'S STANDARDS AND EXPECTATIONS WITHOUT DISRUPTION
Inovues Glazing Shields can significantly improve the insulation and energy efficiency of the building while enhancing its durability and appearance, providing several energy- and non-energy-related benefits that meet the requirements and expectations of building owners and tenants.
With Inovues Glazing Shields, building owners can save up to 40% on energy consumption, increase the value and sustainability of their assets, and improve occupant satisfaction through better thermal and acoustic comfort.
We offer building owners the economic benefits of facade renovations and energy efficiency retrofits at a fraction of the cost and time it takes to remove and replace the existing window systems and without disrupting the building or disturbing the occupants. Our solution eliminates the downtime associated with window replacement and provides up to 10 times faster payback and up to 400% return on investment from energy savings alone.
Works with most windows and curtainwalls as an exterior or interior retrofit.
