Our switchable glass (also known as smart glass) is one of the most stylish and contemporary products we install. With the ability to switch between clear and opaque glass at the touch of a button, you’re sure to impress both staff and visitors.
Switchable glass partitioning is made up of different layers: the glass itself, a self-adhesive layer, a soft, flexible and transparent ITO (Indium Tin Oxide) layer and, finally, a layer of tiny liquid crystal molecules.
So, what’s the science behind it? Well, when the smart glass is turned on, the small molecules of liquid crystal align, allowing light to penetrate through the glass and forming the transparent mode. When your switchable glass is turned off, the crystals are unaligned and block the light, forming the opaque setting.
