Switchable PDLC film, we also call it black out window film or privacy film , as its name suggests, is operated by a simple electrical switch, controlling the opacity of the glass from clear to translucent. Smart film can easily be integrated into automation systems too, giving you even more control.
Switchable glass also offers thermal, solar and sound insulation benefits, helping to keep rooms cool, comfortable and quiet. And it removes the need for fiddly, awkward privacy blinds or curtains.
Switch on to Intelligent Glass – the clear choice:
This unique technology has been made using a proprietary manufacturing process that allows us to produce this darker variation of standard PDLC technology.
Market demand for a blackout switchable technology encouraged this development, however, due to the way PDLC film operates, customers are often left disappointed that a true blackout switchable technology is physically impossible. This fact encouraged Intelligent Glass to begin work on a new product, a solution that blocks out even more light than standard switchable technology.
This product is the closest switchable alternative to a blackout solution possible, offering a darker switchable glass than has been seen in the past. The best of both worlds, Switchable Black is the perfect compromise between a near blackout effect and style, allowing users to enjoy enhanced privacy as well as benefit from the functionality of switchable technology.
We have produced our standard switchable film for lamination for nearly 10 years. The film is used mainly for the manufacture of laminated switchable smart glass.
Over the years there have been a number of improvements made to the liquid crystal and the latest generation of film offers excellent performance, consistency, clarity and longevity.
