5 Things You Didn’t Know About Smart Glass
While most people understand that smart glass and film go from clear to frosted with the flick of a switch, many people are unaware of all the benefits of smart glass. Keep reading to learn 5 things most people don’t know about smart glass.
The demand for switchable glass products is increasing everyday, but why? Well, many people are still unaware of what smart glass is and even if they are, they are still discovering the many benefits of smart glass that extend beyond privacy alone. In this post, we will take a closer look at some of the lesser-known advantages that smart glass has over ordinary glass and why it is superior to traditional window treatments.
1. Smart Glass Has Soundproofing Properties
Noise reduction glass typically costs over $100 per square foot, while smart privacy glass includes these soundproofing properties at no additional cost. Smart glass is essentially smart film sandwiched between two pieces of laminated and tempered glass, giving it sound insulating abilities. This further enhances privacy by keeping noise out and conversations in. These properties have made smart glass a great choice for all kinds of noisy environments from factories to schools, confidential government offices and urban residences.
2. Smart Glass Can Be Used As a Projection Screen and Whiteboard
Smart glass and film are popular options for conference rooms and home theatres. Part of this popularity is due to the fact that both products can be used as HD/4K projection screens or as a whiteboard. Rather than mounting a screen or whiteboard inside the meeting room itself, simply install smart glass and enjoy a truly multifunctional meeting space. This also gives your space a more minimalist look because it will be free of mounted TVs, roll down screens and whiteboards.
3. Smart Glass Is Highly Customizable
Any type of glass can be made switchable either through our lamination process or the application of smart film. Any shape of glass can be made switchable, including curved glass surfaces. Each piece of glass is delivered with all notches and holes for hardware such as door handles already cut out for you.
While our standard smart glass has a maximum width of 150 inches and height of 72 inches, we can make larger pieces if necessary.
4. Smart Glass and Film Can Be Integrated With Home Automation Systems
There are lots of ways to control switchable glass. While many people are happy to use the transformer or a remote control, many more prefer to integrate smart glass with their home automations system, control it via smartphone or use Siri or Alexa to control it with voice command. You can even use a timer to automatically schedule smart glass to turn on or off. Switchable glass and film are smart home products.
5. Smart Glass Enhances Security
Smart glass and film go from clear to frosted in a fraction of second, instantly making spaces private. This is the most obvious security benefit of smart glass and one of the reasons it is a top choice for schools, universities and government offices. Though many people don’t realize that in addition to providing privacy, our smart glass is laminated and tempered safety glass that acts as a barrier against forced entry.
