PlanIt! Comfort Optimization Blinds™ are a green alternative to regular blinds. They let in full sunlight, block 92% of UV rays, generate heat in cooler months and deflect solar heat in warmer months, lowering energy cost up to 40%.This innovative product is the only blind on the market today that sustains a comfortable room temperature throughout the year

For many entrepreneurs and small businesses, high utility costs have become a big operating expense. Similarly, low productivity can result from fluctuating temperatures and poor lighting. This can hamper performance and contribute to injuries or absenteeism.

Made from transparent, eco-friendly food-grade PVC material, they work like a two-way mirror allowing 90% visibility to the outside in the day, while preventing onlookers from seeing in, providing privacy and protection - ideal for health professionals, gyms and salons. At night, lighting makes inner contents and occupants fully visible from outside providing security.

This product may qualify you for Federal or Provincial energy saving incentives. Contact us today to get your free estimate and ROI assessment using the form below.

2017 IIoT Symposium event header

Silicon Halton, and my firm Mi6 Agency,  are communications partners for the upcoming IIoT Symposium being produced by McRock Capital taking place on May 18, 2017 in Montreal, Canada.

McRock Capital, was the very first Venture Capital Firm and Fund in Canada and most likely the world, to be exclusively focused on the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) market. I’ve attended this event twice and will be covering it on behalf of Silicon Halton this year.

What’s very interesting about this event is how the McRock Capital team have brought together the right mix of stakeholders in the IIoT scene.

  • Large global enterprises: companies that provide market insights and are looking to invest, partner and go to market with IIoT startups

  • Entrepreneurs: emerging leaders and risk takers who are forging new paths in the IIoT space through their ideas, startups and passion

  • Funders: people and organizations that finance and fund IIoT ideas and startups

  • Subject Matter Experts: who can help you understand market challenges and opportunities and give you a view into the future of IIoT

  • Government orgs: those that support entrepreneurs to start and grow their business

And finally, there’s celebrities, music, comedy, food and networking  as part of the socializing and entertainment that this event is known for. If you’re in the IIoT space I strongly recommend that you attend this event.  To learn more about McRock Capital and the upcoming IIoT Symposium check out my interview with co-founder and Managing Director Whitney Rockley.
