A Dream Comes True
At Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, visitors to the ”Vision House” gain a direct insight on all that a ”green” home has to offer. An environmentally friendly CERAN® glass-ceramic cooktop panel and an efficient burning fireplace featuring a ROBAX® glass-ceramic panel from SCHOTT are among the highlights.
What do we do when we have a few days off? Apparently, many of us decide to spend a couple of days at one of the major amusement parks. According to the Themed Entertainment Association (TEA), the 25 most-visited theme and leisure parks in the world recorded 198.1 million visitors in 2011, an increase of 4.5 percent over the previous year. As this clearly indi-cates, the major amusement parks in Asia, Europe and North and South America continue to draw record numbers of visitors thanks to their new attractions that are action-filled, their fabu-lous shows, and perfect infrastructure that also includes hotels and restaurants.

During the guided tour through the exhibition, visitors learn more about intelligent products and advanced technologies. Leading companies from various industries present ”green” living solutions such as energy-efficient doors and windows, hardwood floors and cabinets, photovoltaic modules, highly efficient heating, ventilation and cooling systems, electric vehicle charging stations, innovative automation systems for the entire house, durable, environmentally friendly outside materials, LED lighting solutions and home appliances that save electricity. All products incorporated into the Vision House are commercially available. These include an environmentally friendly CERAN® glass-ceramic cooktop panel, which is manufactured without using the heavy metals arsenic and antimony. A ROBAX® fireplace viewing panel is an integral part of an environmentally friendly appliance and allows for wood to be burned more efficiently, delivering higher heat output and is CO2 neutral, emitting virtually no fine dust particles.
”We are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Disney to demonstrate to homeowners that small behavioral modifications can make big differences in their environmental impact. Our goal with the Vision House is to deliver an inspiring message that makes sustainability personal – to help families ’bring green home’ both literally and figuratively,” explains Sara Gutterman, CEO of Green Builder Media. <
