8 Ways Smart Glass & Smart Film Can Be Customized
Switchable film and glass are custom made products and this customization goes above and beyond the dimensions of the product. Read this article to discover how smart glass and film can be tailored to your unique needs.
Switchable glass and film go from clear to frosted on demand, providing instant privacy and transforming spaces from public and open to private and closed off. As you might expect, each piece of smart film or glass is custom manufactured and cut to our customer’s exact specifications. But what you may not know is that PDLC glass products can be customized in many other ways. Keep reading to discover how smart film and glass can be customized to make ordinary glass extraordinary.
1. Any Type Of Glass Can Be Smart Glass
We offer two main products: smart glass and smart film. Smart glass contains the switchable PDLC layer sandwiched between two pieces of laminated and tempered safety glass and is installed just like regular glass. Smart film is applied to the surface of existing glass, transforming it into switchable glass. So regardless whether or not you already have glass installed, switchable glass can be yours to have and enjoy!
Require a specific type of glass? No worries, we offer all kinds of smart glass and different glass thicknesses:
Insulated Smart Glass Units (Smart IGUs)
Many of our customers opt for insulated smart glass units for exterior facing applications. That’s because they offer additional energy efficiency and, for this very reason, are often required by local building codes.
Low Iron Glass
For those looking for smart glass with enhanced clarity, we offer low iron smart glass. Our low iron glass only costs ten percent more than our standard smart glass and is ideal for areas with lots of glazing and great views.
Fitting conventional window treatments to curved glass surfaces is challenging. That’s why we get a lot of requests for curved smart glass. Show off the beautiful shape of your curved glass at all times without any compromise on privacy!
2. Any Glass Shape
At Smart Glass Country we are able to manufacture unique glass shapes like circles, triangles or more abstract silhouettes to fit existing windows or as part of bespoke design.
Our smart film can be trimmed to suit any glass shape.
3. Switchable Glass Designs
In addition to providing privacy on demand, switchable glass products can have logos, patterns and artistic designs embedded within them. The glass can then be switched through four states: clear, clear with a frosted logo, frosted with a clear logo or completely opaque.
We can also make switchable patterned blinds that appear and disappear from the glass. This is ideal for areas where you want to be able to adjust your privacy and have more options than completely clear or frosted.
4. Combine Smart Glass & Smart Film With Other Products
Privacy glass and film can be combined with other products to provide the exact solution you are looking for.
For example, you could combine switchable glass technology with UV darkening film to combine privacy with self-tinting glass.
5. Different Shades of Smart Film
Our standard smart film product comes in white, but we also offer various shades of gray. Contact us to find out which colors we currently have in stock.
We also offer smart glass in different colors including blue, gray, red and bronze.
6. Innovative Wiring Solutions for Smart Glass Walls, Windows and Doors
Both switchable film and glass can be installed on operable glass surfaces such as windows and doors. Smart Glass Country has dealt with virtually every installation scenario imaginable and can make recommendations for wiring smart glass on everything from sliding doors to moveable glass partitions.
7. Cutouts for Hardware
At Smart Glass Country, we take the time to do cutouts for hardware such as door handles and hinges for you. We provide this service at no additional cost. Just send us precise drawings when finalizing your order.
8. Diverse Control Options
Switchable glass can be controlled any way you like whether it is a wall switch, remote control, button, smartphone, voice command or a home automation system.
