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.
