Our toughened Switchable Glass tends to be our most popular option worldwide offering a cost effective solution where the liquid crystal Switchable layer is coated down directly to glass. Switchable Glass windows, also known as Smart Glass, switches from frosted to clear at the flick of a switch.
This means that the Switchable coating can be simply applied to any type or thickness of glass (including fire rated), creating a solution with optimum clarity and performance. Another major factor is a reduction in manufacturing lead-time, making it the ideal choice for all time critical projects.
Our standard switchable smart glass (single glazed) uses toughened/tempered glass in thicknesses 5mm, 6mm, 8mm, 10mm, 12mm and 15mm. The 5mm and 6mm glass is often used by Double Glazing manufacturers to build into their own sealed units.
A simple ON-OFF mode switches the glass from being clear (transparent) to frosted (opaque). In its frosted state the film acts as an electronic blind providing privacy and security for any glass, window or partition.
The switchable smart glass can be manufactured to any size with three standard widths 1000mm (39"), 1200mm (47.3’’) and 1500mm (59"). Larger sizes and custom shapes are also available. Multiple panels can be joined together to create large switchable glazed walls or partitions.
This unique glass technology can also be used as a high definition rear projection screen to display corporate presentations, TV images and videos. A truly innovative product making switchable smart glass technology accessible to everyone while giving your home or business the added WOW factor.
The active component is a liquid crystal polymer which changes its visual appearance when an electrical current is applied. A flick of a switch transforms film and glass from frosted to clear. When in a frosted state images can be projected onto the surface to create a high definition display screen (rear projection).
We manufacture the switchable glass range up to 1500mm x 3000mm. The glass can also be supplied cut to the exact size with the bus-bar (electrifying strip) already fitted.
