WHAT IS SMART
GLASS TECHNOLOGY

Smart glass technology is a means to control the transmission of light through the glass by applying electrical power to a PDLC (Polymer Dispersed Liquid Crystal) panel in between two panels of glass.

BENEFITS

  • Instant privacy: Switches from clear to opaque in less than a second; replacing the need for curtains, shutters, blinds and drapes.
  • UV & heat protection: Blocks more than 98% of UV rays and up to 60% of heat.
  • Display technology: In the off mode it can be used as a rear projection screen with high contrast allowing for digital advertising content.
  • Creative solutions: Smart glass allows designers to devise creative concepts in their architectural, interior or contractor designs by developing multifunctional spaces and redefining environments.
  • Colors & sizes: The switchable solutions are available in different sizes, forms and colors to accommodate specific display applications.
  • Durable & reliable: Our technology provides a more durable and more hygienic solution with lower maintenance requirements.
  • Power efficiency: Smart glass requires low working voltage that leads to more efficient power consumption.

HOW IT WORKS

Our sophisticated technology ensures smart glass is implemented with seamless electronic integration; all you have to do is push a button.

The PDLC panel or “smart film” features two sheets of conductive film that have been coated with liquid crystals, high polymer and electrical wiring that connect to a transformer. This transformer supplies power for the panel’s operation, applying electricity to the film rearranges the crystal molecules, allowing light to pass through the film.
When activated, the liquid crystal molecules are aligned, which allows light to penetrate through the film. When deactivated, the liquid crystal molecules are randomly scattered, which makes light unable to penetrate the film, thus turning the smart film opaque.


As liquid crystal molecules are randomly oriented, restricting lights from passing through.

By changing the orientation of the liquid crystal molecules with an electric field, it is possible to vary the intensity of transmitted light.
