Looking Ahead

Looking forward, architects anticipate that the integrated blinds will gain traction, particularly in health-care and K–12 applications.

“This growth will be driven by the desire to achieve green buildings, the increased importance of reducing hospital-acquired infections, and technical improvements to the systems that will increase their life cycle,” states Levi.

Emphasizing the fact that clean environments are worth the added cost in the long run, Martinez-Wyatt also anticipates that BBGs will grow in popularity, especially with its low maintenance requirements.

Overall, Cox believes that sustainable building initiatives, more stringent building codes, smart grids/smart cities with enhanced energy infrastructure and a general global trend to curb carbon emissions will result in more widespread adoption of BBG systems.
