Switchable Window Film
Smart window film is applied topically to existing glass & windows to change from clear to opaque on demand Once seen on the Jetsons as futuristic, Switchable Window Film is the latest and greatest product that can change from clear to an opaque state, providing the ultimate in heat & privacy control. For more than a decade, switchable glass technology has been utilized for commercial, residential, transportation, healthcare and government applications. Now you can achieve this functionality using a topical film applied to any glass surface using a patented new technology called PDLC.
How it Works This self adhesive Smart Window Film applies to any existing or new smooth glass surface. A simple ON – OFF mode switches the PDLC film from the clear (transparent) to a frosted (opaque) state. In clear mode, an electrical current is passing through the PDLC (Polymer Dispersed Liquid Crystal) interlayer which aligns the microscopic crystals along a number of parallel axes, thus allowing vision through the glass. Conversely when electricity is switched off, the liquid crystals return to their normal scattered positions changing the film from clear (transparent) to opaque (frosted). Essentially this product is an electronic blind providing privacy and security for any glass, window or partition.
Where & Why? Many custom homes incorporate unique window shapes that enhance the appearance of the property but can be extremely difficult to treat. Up to this point, window covering solutions have been limited, clunky and expensive. Oval, eyebrow, angled and trapezoidal glazing can now be templated and custom fit to create a beautiful, clean and effective solar and privacy window covering solution. Multiple pieces can be butt together to treat larger window openings.
