Utilizing our 20+ years of experience in electrochromics, combined with PPG Aerospace’s performance and reputation in the aerospace industry, Gentex has expanded its product line and business by creating interactive windows for use in commercial and business aircraft. Designed to replace conventional plastic pull-down shades, our dimmable window systems afford operating efficiencies for airlines while allowing flight crews and passengers enhanced control of their environment. Marketed by PPG Aerospace under the brand name “Alteos™ Interactive Window Systems”, the world’s first electrochromic window shades for commercial and business aircraft passenger cabins easily switch from a bright, clear state to an extreme dark state, or to a comfortable intermediate level in between, all at the touch of a button.
