What is Smart Switchable Glass

Smart Switchable Glass, also known as Smart Privacy Glass, is a revolutionary glazing technology that combines traditional glass with advanced materials to create a dynamic and adaptable window or partition. What sets this glass apart is its ability to switch between opaque and transparent states, controllable at the touch of a button. This transformation is made possible by incorporating a special film or interlayer (PDLC film) between two layers of glass that can change its opacity when subjected to an electrical charge.

Smart Glass is a remarkable innovation that has revolutionized the way we interact with windows and glass partitions. Its ability to switch between transparent and opaque states, energy efficiency, and versatility make it a valuable addition to residential, commercial, and industrial spaces. As technology continues to advance, smart glass is likely to become even more integrated into our everyday lives, improving both comfort and functionality.

Privacy

Privacy on-demand

Smart Switchable Glass is a type of smart glass in which smart PDLC film is incorporated (laminated) between two layers of glass. Therefore, the features of smart films are added to this laminated glass. You can change the transparency of Switchable Glass in less than a second just by the flick of a switch.

Instant privacy on demand will be provided hassle-free wherever it is required. Smart Privacy Glass is another name for this product which refers to its unique technology and optical characteristics.

Cleaning

Easier Clean and Maintenance

Traditional fabric curtains for privacy or shading are outdated, hard to clean, collect dust, and disrupt sleek glass partition designs. Unlike curtains and partitions, which can trap bacteria and viruses, smart glass is easy to keep clean and sterile.

Smart Switchable Glass panels allow light to flow freely through the room when wanted but can be dimmed when privacy is desired. These glasses are less easily disturbed than traditional blinds, curtains, and screens while easier to clean and maintain.

Incorporating switchable smart glass in hospitals allows them to stop using curtains, blinds, and cloth partitions for patient privacy. Please click here to download our clean and maintenance guidance.

Durable

More resistant to Humidity

In smart privacy films, liquid crystal is dispersed between polymer layers. LC (Liquid Crystal) is so sensitive to humidity. So, if the smart film is installed in a wet environment, it easily will become defective. It is recommended not to install smart films in wet environments such as pools, bathrooms, or outdoor glass partitions.

To prevent such defects, the non-adhesive PDLC film will be laminated in between two layers of glass, which makes Switchable Glass. Consider installing laminated smart glass instead of self-adhesive smart films in such environments.
