What is switch glass?
I know what you are all wondering, what is switch glass? Well, in a nutshell, switch glass, or smartglass as it is also known, is a ready-to-glaze type of glass that uses a switchable polymer allowing it to switch from being a transparent panel to an opaque one.
What benefits does smartglass offer?
Smartglass is environmentally friendly, sleek and very cost effective – no need for air conditioning on those hot summer days because switch glass blocks out the sun!
Made out of a dispersed liquid crystal (PDLC) film that is sandwiched between 2 pieces of annealed glass, this luxury product is the perfect alternative to blinds and curtains. Additionally, the switch glass’ light transmission properties can be altered when light, heat or voltage is applied to the product.
