Such is the beauty and flexibility of the product, architects and designers continue to find new and innovative uses for it.
Smart glass products can be used in residential and commercial buildings alike. As architects and designers explore the boundaries of switchable privacy glass and turn conventional perspectives of glass on their head, it is expected that the market will continue to grow and expand into new and innovative uses of privacy glass.
How does switchable privacy glass work?
Through the application of an electrical current the properties of the glass change turning it from opaque to clear in less than 0.01 seconds. This transformation to opaque and back again can be triggered from a range of wall switches, remote controls, movement sensors, light sensors or timers, depending on each customer’s individual needs. Numerous variations of privacy switchable glass can be supplied including color tinted, fire-rated, double glazed, curved and shaped privacy glass.
