Smart Glass Explained

Smart Glass Explained

Priviglaze is a leading brand of Switchable Glass and Film based in Uxbridge, UK. We provide the best quality smart glass to help you enhance the ambiance of your home and office with smarter design solutions. We believe an informed decision is a smart decision. This is why we are here to clear up any common misconceptions and answer your queries about switchable smart glass.

What is Smart Glass and how does it work?

Also known as switchable glass, smart glass is built up with different layers, which include the glass layer, self-adhesive layer, soft flexible transparent ITO (Indium Tin Oxide) conductive film, and a layer of tiny liquid crystal molecules.

Smart Glass is specifically designed to provide both “see-through” and “opaque” visual options on a single plate. When switched on, the tiny molecules of liquid crystals are aligned to allow the light to penetrate through the glass, thus becoming transparent. When switched off, the liquid crystals are dis-aligned to block the light from penetrating through the glass, thus becoming opaque.

Where can Switchable Glass be used?

Well, the list is interminable. Priviglaze can be used in several places for different purposes; in both commercial and residential buildings. Our smart glass can be installed as doors, roof-lights, privacy glass, office partitions, HD projection screen, and the list goes on. The multipurpose nature of Priviglaze has also helped architects and interior designers to discover and apply its varied purposes and usefulness; enabling them to come up with new and unique designs.

Some smart ways to use smart glass:

  •  Corporate workspace: If you want your office space to stand out, the switchable glass window is a great pick for you. You can use them as window glass for a contemporary look to your workspace.
  • Partition – The switchable smart glass can be used for home and office partition purposes. The privacy on-demand glass exudes a cosy look and feel to any room. You can use the smart glass to partition office areas, create separate cabins, and meeting rooms.
  • Roofs and Doors – If you want an elegant home with without curtains, blinds and shutters hanging all over the rooms, then the smart glass is just what you need. Priviglaze skylights work to keep your home filled with natural light during the day and give you privacy whenever you want it.
