Smart glass has been revolutionizing the way we design and interact with spaces by pushing the limits of what glass can do.

Smart glass refers to a type of glass that can change its properties in response to external stimuli such as light, heat, or voltage. The term smart glass typically refers to switchable smart glass, though it is sometimes used to refer to electrochromic glass, SPD glass, or thermochromic glass. In this article we are focused on switchable smart glass. 

Switchable glass, also known as privacy glass or PDLC glass, is a type of glass that can change its transparency or opacity in response to electricity. Here are  ten examples of its use:

1. Home Windows

Smart privacy glass can be used for home windows to provide privacy on demand. It can be installed in bathrooms, bedrooms, or living areas where privacy is desired but natural light is also important.

2. Offices

In office buildings or commercial spaces, smart privacy glass can be used for partition walls and office doors to create private spaces when needed. Switchable glass helps offices balance the competing demands of open office plans and the need for private, distraction free spaces.

3. Conference Rooms

Using switchable window film in meeting spaces creates memorable experiences for staff and visitors. Smart glass always leaves a lasting impression. A bonus, is that smart glass can be used as a rear projection screen when switched to frosted, making it perfect for presentations. 

4. Smart Film

A lot of people don’t realize that they can transform their existing glass walls, windows and doors into switchable glass by applying smart film. This makes it easy to enjoy privacy on demand without needing to replace your existing windows. Here is a video demonstrating a smart film installation:

5. Retail Displays

Smart glass can be used in retail settings for interactive displays or changing room partitions. It can switch from transparent to opaque to provide privacy for customers trying on clothes or used as a digital projection screen. 

6. Hospitality Industry

Hotels often use smart glass in bathrooms or as partitions between rooms to offer guests privacy while making hotel rooms look bigger and brighter.

7. Healthcare Settings

In hospitals or clinics, smart privacy glass can be used in patient rooms, waiting areas, or examination rooms to provide privacy for patients and medical staff.

8. Security Applications

Smart glass can be used in security settings such as interrogation rooms or observation areas, providing one-way visibility for enhanced security and observation. At Smart Glass Country, we have had our glass installed in some of the most top secret spaces in the USA, though of course we cannot share videos of these projects with you. 

9. Skylights and Hard to Reach Windows

Smart film is a great choice for skylights and other hard to reach windows as it can be controlled contactlessly. Blinds are cumbersome to install on operate on skylights while privacy film gives them a clean look.

10. Schools

Smart glass and film are becoming more common in schools because they add an invisible layer of security to any glass surface. In the event of a lockdown, the glass can automatically be switched to frosted and integrated with security systems. 

These are just a few examples of the many applications of switchable smart privacy glass. Its versatility and ability to transform spaces make it a popular choice for architects, designers, and building owners seeking innovative solutions for privacy, security, and environmental control.
