Switchable smart glass windows are a new technology that can help you achieve the look of multiple types of window panes in one, depending on what mood or need you might have. If privacy is your goal during certain hours but natural light and an open view at other times, this type of option may be perfect for your home or office space.
Today’s blog will inform you about smart glasses as well as how they benefit consumers by giving them more options when it comes to their homes’ exterior designs with ease and affordability
So What Is a Smart Glass?
Smart glass can be dynamic and multifunctional by allowing for the control of various forms of light, including visible light, ultraviolet (UV), or infrared (IR). Privacy products are based on technologies that allow transparent materials to switch from clear to shaded or opaque.
This technology can be integrated into windows, partitions and other transparent surfaces in various sectors. It will have applications for architecture, interior design, automotive businesses like car showrooms and automobile dealerships; smart retail windows that are used to display products at supermarkets or clothing stores; as well as consumer electronics.
There are two primary types of smart glass: active and passive. Active technologies require an electrical charge in order for their properties to switch between transparent/opaque states (passive) whereas if no electric current is involved then this type changes its transparency level spontaneously without any intervention needed by the person using them (active). The term ‘smart’ mainly refers to active technologies where private films applied onto windows allow you adjust both opacity as well as colour through voltage control input given externally i.e., not internally generated
There are three types of active switchable glass technologies, and each has its own unique applications.
- A privacy partition is a semi-transparent glass wall that prevents people from seeing through it. A polymer-dispersed liquid crystal (PDLC) glass, or smart window as they are sometimes called because of its ability to change opacity and reflect different colours, becomes an attractive option for this application due to its affordability compared with laminated glasses like those used in automotive windows.
- Suspended Particle Device (SPD) glass is a type of glass that can be tinted to block out the sun and its heat depending on how much voltage it has been powered by. The windows in cars or skyscrapers are perfect examples of this kind of technology since they allow you to see through with clarity while giving your home an added layer of insulation from climate changes outside.
- Electrochromic, or EC, glass refers to window products—like coatings as well as self-tinting smart windows–that automatically darken when exposed to electricity so they can provide shade without any manual interference from people at home.
There are two main Passive types of smart glasses on the market, each with unique features and applications:
- Photochromic glasses, such as those coated with photochromic glass and auto-tinting when exposed to sunlight.
- Thermochromic glass coated Windows that change colour based on the temperature outside.
Privacy Glass is a technology that allows you to switch surfaces from transparent to opaque in order for people who are inside the glass walled area or partition. Privacy Glasses have become very popular because they do not take up much space and can be used efficiently in open plan offices, hotels where there are limited spaces available, as well as conference rooms with glass walls/partitions.
