Absolutely! Smart Film is designed specifically for existing glass and has a self-adhesive layer that can be applied to glass just as a screen protector is applied to your phone. At Smart Glass Country we pre-cut our Smart Film to your specific glass size and then you simply have to peel it off, apply it to the glass and smooth it over the surface.
Simply measure the height and length of the glass, allowing for a ⅛ of an inch installation tolerance.
Smart Film should be cleaned with a soft cloth and gentle cleanser free of harsh chemicals. Pay extra attention to the edges of the glass to be sure that fluids do not collect in the corners during the cleaning process.
Two technologies are available: rear projections (using a projector and Smart Film as a screen) and transparent LED display. Please contact us for more information.
By increasing natural light Smart Glass Technology reduces the need for artificial light. This translates into reduced energy consumption.
Like most electronic devices, you plug Smart Glass and Film into a power outlet and it is ready to go. You can also plug in the controller and download an app from the Apple Store or Google Play to control the glass from your smartphone.
Adhesive Smart Film has a backing that can be peeled off for easy application to existing glass. It is very similar to applying a screen protector to a phone.
Non-adhesive Smart Film does not have a peel and stick backing. Instead it is applied using double sided tape. The tape can be supplied with the film or purchased at any hardware store.
