Kind Code:
A3
Abstract:
This disclosure describes systems, methods, and apparatus for a structural insulation assembly having a variable insulating value and being incorporated into a thermal envelope of a structure, the assembly comprising a first and second surface; a cavity between the first and second surfaces and at least partially filled with a gas; a plurality of insulating elongated fins fixed to distinct rotational axes parallel to each other, the plurality of elongated fins being continuously rotatable between a closed position, where the plurality of elongated fins are substantially vertical, and a fully open position, where the plurality of elongated fins are perpendicular to the first and second surfaces and parallel to each other; an actuator for controlling a rotational angle of the insulating elongated fins to effectuate the variable insulating value; and a controller configured to pass instructions to the actuator dictating the angle of the insulating elongated fins.
