    Our Switchable Smart Glass products offer privacy on demand and can be switched in a wide array of ways including phone and tablet apps via home automation systems, remote control, voice activation, PIR sensor or a standard light switch. Privacy has never been this easy!

    SWITCHABLE PROJECTION SCREENS

    Smart Glass is an incredibly versatile technology integrated in a wide range of environments for privacy including homes, offices, hotels, hospitals and yachts while our Smart Glass projection screens are often integrated for theatre, museums, live events, retail stores and car showrooms to name a few.

    WHAT IS SWITCHABLE GLASS?

    Switchable Glass, also known as smart glass and electric privacy glass, is an optical glass technology that can adjust light transmission through the use of an AC power source. When no power is applied switchable glass appears opaque and cannot be seen through, when a current is applied the glass becomes clear allowing light to pass through freely.

    HOW DOES SMART GLASS WORK?

    Smart Glass is manufactured with an active component that allows the glass to change states through the application of electricity, PDLC (Polymer Dispersed Liquid Crystal). In its natural ‘off’ state, these liquid crystals are arranged to refract light waves away from the surface appearing opaque. When an electrical current is applied, the crystals polarize, rearranging to allow more light to pass through causing the glass to appear clear.

    WHAT’S THE LARGEST SIZE OF SWITCHABLE GLASS YOU CAN OFFER?

    Toughened and Laminated Switchable Glass can be manufactured with a maximum panel size of 4000mm and maximum width of 1800mm. For larger switchable solutions, our Switchable Film is available in widths of up to 1500mm and can be cut to any size, with multiple pieces able to be joined together with minimal join lines to create larger switchable glazed panels or partitions.

    IS SWITCHABLE GLASS SUITABLE FOR HOSPITALS?

    Smart Glass is a great choice for healthcare applications with previous uses including hospitals, treatment rooms, surgeries and research labs. Not only is our Switchable Laminate glass recommended for its robustness in high traffic areas, but it can also be easily cleaned and maintained when compared to alternative privacy solutions like curtains and window coverings that have to be regularly replaced.

    CAN SWITCHABLE GLASS BE USED AS A PROJECTION SCREEN?

    Yes switchable glass can be used for projection! If you’re looking to use a projector with our switchable glass we recommend using Toughened Switchable Glass or our Switchable Film for the best results. Our switchable technology has been featured in many high profile projects including product launches for Rolls Royce and Jaguar, as well as in the HQ for Cirque Du Soleil.

    Switchable projection screens are also a popular choice for listed buildings and churches, offering a discreet projection system that ‘disappears’ when switched to clear maintaining the visibility of the architecture of the venue.
