Transform your building's shades into high performing facades
AXIS Gear is the first retrofit solution to transform window coverings
into a professionally designed system. Create dynamic indoor environments by optimizing both occupant
comfort and energy savings.
With AXIS Gear you can:
Reduce dependency on artificial lighting by 22%
Reduce peak cooling load by 23%
Improved comfort and productivity
Automate window coverings to raise or lower based on weather conditions through the use of temperature and light sensors. Enjoy optimal indoor conditions all year around for improved comfort and productivity.
Optimized energy management
AXIS Gear’s advanced algorithms and suite of intelligent sensors automatically raise and lower window coverings throughout the day to reduce energy consumption and natural light management.
SUSTAINABILITY & LEED
Make your building LEED certified
Daylight harvesting control can contribute toward LEED credits in several new
construction categories. Daylight autonomy can also contribute to LEED points. AXIS Gear can contribute to earning up to 15 out of the possible 110 LEED NC v4 points, within the following categories:
To minimize light trespass from the building and site, reduce sky-glow to increase night
sky access, improve nighttime visibility through glare reduction and reduce development
impact from lighting on nocturnal environments.
To achieve increasing levels of energy performance beyond the prerequisite standard to
reduce environmental and economic impacts associated with excessive energy use.
To provide a high level of thermal comfort system control by individual occupants or
groups in multi-occupant spaces (e.g. classrooms or conference areas) and promote
their productivity, comfort, and well-being.
To provide building occupants with a connection between indoor spaces and the
outdoors through the introduction of daylight and views into the regularly occupied
areas of the building.
