ODL and Miru Smart Technologies Announce Collaboration

ODL, Inc. and Miru Smart Technologies ("Miru"), a developer of next-generation smart windows, have signed a two year collaboration agreement to develop electrochromic doorglass and patio doors exclusively made with Miru's innovative and patented smart window technology.

ODL and Miru are working together to introduce tintable, electrochromic glass as an energy-efficient, comfort-enhancing, and affordable solution to smart doors. This modern aesthetic will provide a solution that customers have been unable to find in the existing window coverings market.

“This collaboration with Miru supports ODL's commitment to long-term growth and innovation and its brand promise of Building Value into Building Products,” said Ivan Samalot, Executive VP of Product Development, ODL. “For nearly 80 years, ODL has created products that make life better for our customers. We’re excited to continue that tradition by developing tintable doorglass with Miru’s smart window technology that is high-performing, energy-efficient and beautiful.”

"Homeowners want more access to light, views, and nature and are increasingly incorporating doorglass and glass patio doors in their home to maintain their connections to the outside,” said Curtis Berlinguette, CEO, Miru Smart Technologies. “Miru and ODL’s smart doorglass will be a perfect fit for efficient and net-zero homes, providing a beautiful and functional solution for modern homeowners.”

Estimated consumer value of the entry door and sliding glass patio doors market for North America in 2022 was $10 billion and expected to grow to $12 billion over the next five years as builders and homeowners look for ways to connect their indoor and outdoor living spaces. ODL and Miru’s collaboration seeks to pioneer the next exclusive light and privacy control solution on the market.
