Switchable glass technology makes a beautiful, affordable addition to any home or office. The streamlined, modern appearance achieved with smart glass products is obviously desirable, so naturally one of the first questions people ask is ‘How much does it cost?’
The cost of switchable glass and film products depends on which product you are interested in, the dimensions, total square footage of the order and any special specifications. While smart film and glass are more expensive than ordinary glass, it eliminates the need to purchase blinds or curtains for privacy and can even decrease energy and cleaning costs.
Smart Glass Pricing
The cost of our standard switchable glass ranges from $85-130 United States Dollars (USD) per square foot. For orders under 40 square feet, you can expect to pay $130 USD per square foot. As the quantity increases, the price decreases. We may be able to negotiate the price lower than $85 per square foot for bulk orders.
Each piece of privacy glass is manufactured to the exact specifications of the customer. We cut holes for hardware such as door handles prior to shipping at no additional cost. We also can make any type of glass switchable through our lamination process. We can make X-ray glass and bulletproof glass switchable in addition to any glass that requires special ratings such as glass pressure ratings required in hurricane zones. We can also add aesthetic features to our switchable glass and film products such as switchable logos and patterns. The pricing of these different types of glass varies. Please inquire and indicate your estimated order quantity and unique needs and we will send you an estimate within one business day.
Those who find the price of our switchable glass too high may be interested in our switchable film as an affordable alternative.
Smart Film Pricing
Our smart film product is a self-adhesive film that is applied to existing glass, transforming it into switchable glass. Electric privacy film works just like electric privacy glass, going from transparent to opaque with the flick of a switch. The adhesive film is actually the same PDLC film that is laminated within our glass product. It is ideal for situations where there is already glass in place or for those who are looking for a more economical alternative to our smart privacy glass.
The price of our switchable film ranges from $25-40 USD per square foot. As with our smart glass product, the price comes down as the total order amount increases. We offer bulk discounts on our smart film as well.
Windows act as the last defense against solar heat and heating and cooling loss. As a result, windows can have a major impact on your energy bill. Electric privacy glass and film have the potential to save you a lot of excess energy- and money.
Our products allow natural light to flow through spaces. Even when the glass or film is powered off and opaque it still allows approximately ⅔ of natural light through- minimizing the need for artificial light during private times.
Smart film and glass have IR-blocking capabilities, blocking 12 percent when powered on (transparent) and 73 percent when powered off (opaque). This helps prevent heat from the sun being transferred through the glass.
Traditional blinds and curtains require regular cleaning, washing or even occasional dry cleaning. Smart glass and film are cleaned just like regular glass, no special treatment or tools required. This can save you valuable time and money.
Switchable film and glass products are great for a clean, minimalistic design that does not go out of style. While regular curtains or blinds may go out of fashion every five years, clear glass that can effortlessly be switched to opaque will always look tasteful and never look old or outdated. Over the years, our products will save you the cost and hassle of updating your curtains or blinds to keep up with the latest trends.
Frequently Asked Questions About Pricing

How much does shipping cost for smart film?

What is the electricity cost for smart film or glass?
Switchable glass technology works by connecting the PDLC layer to a power source. While it does consume power to operate electric glass and film, it does not require very much of it. Only 5 watts of power are consumed per 10 square feet of film or glass, making 120 square feet consume no more energy than a 60 watt lightbulb. A lot of this energy consumption is negated by the energy saving features of our products.
