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.

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.

It’s nearly a year since you installed our glass curtains. They have been really great, exceeding our expectations, particularly during the winter months when they were absolutely draught free. When they are fully open you really feel that the lounge is part of the garden, it all becomes one space. Many thanks, they were one

Yes we are very pleased with the doors and would recommend them. Initial contact was done by our neighbour at Kingswood so cannot comment, however, the price we were initially quoted was incorrect and significantly lower than it turned out to be. Not sure why. We at Derwent only had a verbal quotation. The installation

Frameless Glass are one of the most impressive companies I have ever come across

This company have a product which to my mind is “second to none”. Their glass doors really let you feel you are outside as they have the tiniest of joins…I used to know the exact cm measurement! I was initially worried though about what would happen on follow up problems as their main office is
