When it comes to selecting glazing for either the exterior or interior of a property, there are so many different options available. Double glazing isn’t the only product you can use for windows or doors for that matter! As seen on house programmes such as Grand Designs, Smart Glass (also referred to as ‘privacy glass’) is a product that we install on a regular basis for clients in both commercial and residential environments. It has a broad range of applications and uses so we’ve put together this blog post to give you a bit more information on this highly innovative form of glazing.
What is Smart Glass?
Chances are you’ve not actually even heard of Smart Glass, let alone considered using it in your home or office. That’s probably because, up until a few years ago, it was really only architects and interior designers that would specify such glazing. But, thanks to the aforementioned TV show, it’s a product that has become much more well-known and is now demanded by lots of our clients.
Smart glass uses a technology that facilitates the operator to physically control the form of light in a room or area – including UV, IR and visible light – and to switch the glazing from either opaque or transparent depending on individual requirements. We are able to implement this highly innovative technology into a number of different home and office security products such as doors, windows and partitions.
Privacy or transparency, you choose
Smart Glass allows you to totally transform a room or office space at the touch of a button. For example, if you have a bank of bi-fold doors or windows in your bedroom and you don’t want to clutter the aperture with curtains or blinds, Smart Glass in the ideal solution because the glass can be turned from transparent to opaque in a matter of seconds.
This affords an unrivalled level of privacy, security and comfort. Equally, when you want to look out of the bi-fold doors again in the morning when you wake up, simply press the button and the glass will become transparent once more.
The same applies in an office setting where you may wish to have privacy in a meeting room or certain office as well as the potential to apply our Smart Glass solution to all of the existing external windows and switch to opaque every evening to deter intruders. A great addition to any commercial premises when it comes to improving security. Smart switchable glass is definitely here to stay!
Take a look at how clever our Smart Glass solution is. This smart, switchable film that can be retrofitted to glass and will turn opaque instantly at the touch of a button is a real game changer. Perfect for adding an extra level of security in commercial premises, offices and private residences alike. Click the link below and watch the video to see Smart Glass in action!
