Switchable privacy glass for doors and windows

Switchable privacy glass is a high tech way to provide privacy and shade to frameless windows and doors. One of the biggest benefits of our frameless doors is their sleek, minimalist and ultra-modern appearance. This modern look is often something you do not want to obscure with curtains or blinds. However, every home has a requirement for privacy, shade from sunlight and to provide comfort inside the home. At FGC, our switchable smart glass fitted to any of our double glazed doors, provides a great solution.

Switchable Privacy Glass for bifolding doors.

Choose one of our frameless slide and fold doors or other double glazed door styles with switchable privacy glass and enjoy a more flexible and functional door as well as control of light transmission and your privacy. At the flick of a switch, you can instantly provide privacy and shade.

The technology used in our privacy glass, also known as smart glass, allows you to retain all the clean lines of your frameless bifolding doors, without having to obscure them with curtains or blinds.

Where you can use switchable privacy glass.

  • Internal doors.

  • External doors.
  • Rooflights and lantern roofs.
  • Porch doors and entrance doors.
  • Internal room dividers.
  • Windows.

Advantages of smart glass in the home.

When compared to conventional curtains, blinds or integral glass blinds, there are several advantages to fitting smart glass in your new slide and fold doors.

  • Retain the clean modern lines of your new folding doors.
  • No need to obscure your doors with curtains or blinds.
  • Blends with your home, even if you change your interior decor.
  • Never needs cleaning or dusting like curtains and blinds.
  • No need to change your glass if you need a room with obscure glass in the future.

How does switchable privacy glass work in doors and windows?

The glass unit has an electrical current applied that changes the glass from clear to obscure. However, you also benefit from many ways to control the glass. We offer a selection of switches, remote control, wall-mounted switches, a timer or sensors.

Switchable privacy glass is the next generation solution to curtains and blinds, privacy and shade. You can use this glass technology in the home as well as commercial buildings.

Our frameless slide and fold doors already use high specification units with low-emissivity coatings, argon gas fill and specialist spacer bars. You still benefit from this modern and highly energy efficient glass, while having the flexibility of changing the appearance of the glass at a flick of a switch.

Best of all, switchable smart glass is easy to glaze and connect in your home with more control over your comfort and privacy at the flick of a switch.

Dealing with FGC has been a straightforward and hassle free experience from start to finish.

First class

We moved last year and wanted to maximise the view right through from the rear to the front of the building, overlooking the river. After much searching we found FGC, who installed internal glass doors between the rooms. FGC were very efficient and although we are in the North they sorted out a subsequent small

Hugely impressed by your level of service.

I just wanted to say that I remain hugely impressed by your level of service. The two chaps who came out to service our doors were once again marvellous.  They are very polite and clearly very skilled. It’s very easy these days to complain and sometimes it’s nice to pass on credit where it is

Brilliant After Installation Service

Our FGC sliding doors were installed in May 2018.
Although we have had two relatively minor problems – neither of which stopped the doors from working – FGC have attended very promptly to carry out remedial action.
Excellent customer service from head office and excellent service from install technicians.

Perfect product

These frameless glass walls have made a huge difference to our comfort at home. They are installed between our living rooms and conservatory. When open, they allow heat into the living area on a sunny day (reducing our heating bill) and when shut, they keep the cold and noise out. They are also much better

Thank you again for the doors, we’re very happy with them and, once the renderer has finished (hopefully tomorrow), we’re really looking forward to removing the plastic protection so we can see through them properly. Mr B, Brighton
