US-based glass manufacturer View has provided its dynamic glass windows for the new Delta Sky Club lounge situated at Seattle-Tacoma (Sea-Tac) International Airport.
View’s dynamic glass is a new generation of architectural glass that transitions through a variety of tint states to control sunlight.
More than 7,500ft² of View dynamic glass has been installed at the lounge, operated by US-based carrier Delta Air Lines.
Covering an area of 21,000ft², Delta Air Lines’ new lounge is the second Delta Sky Club at Sea-Tac airport and can accommodate up to 400 guests.
Capable of tinting automatically in response to outdoor conditions or manually via a mobile device, the View Dynamic Glass is expected to provide relaxing views of Mount Rainier mountain range to the club members and guests using the new Delta Sky Club.
View CEO Rao Mulpuri said: “View Dynamic Glass enables Delta to provide a comfortable, modern environment for its guests with wellness at the centre.
“We are pleased to partner with a company that employs such a thoughtful approach to the guest experience.”
The company noted that its dynamic glass is designed to allow the lounge to maintain its temperature at optimal levels and maximise natural daylight.
The glass has also removed the need for internal blinds and external shading structures, offering a more comfortable and relaxing airport environment for Delta Air Lines passengers.
So far, View has installed dynamic glass windows in more than 225 projects across North America, with 150 more installations currently in progress.
