Smart Glass improves quality of life

The privacy glass and its infinite applications are revolutionizing the world of interior and exterior decoration, combining functional-ity and aesthetics, getting a sense of spaciousness and light.


Smart glass is based on advanced technology that works with the application of a small electrical current supplied by a programmed transformer. When the current passes through it, it turns to its transparent state and the liquid crystal molecules align themselves. When it does not pass current, it returns to its natural state (opaque) guaranteeing privacy, and it can also be converted into a retro-projection screen with great image quality.

Being its most used applications in contemporary architecture in futuristic buildings, combining design and functionality in a single product, and its application in partitions and partition walls between rooms and bathrooms, widely used mainly in the hotel sector in bathrooms and spas. Thanks to their high technology, smart glasses integrated with polymers can change their state from trans-parent to opaque instantly, by remote control, creating a private environment whenever the user wishes.

They operate with various control devices:

  • Remote control
  • Home automation
  • Opacity level dimmers
  • Closing and opening doors
  • And others

Advantages of smart glass:

  • Immediate control of privacy
  • User comfort and safety
  • Aesthetic and attractive
  • Protection of valuable objects

SMART GLASS – Working Process

The operation of electronic glass is based on the polarization of microparticles in an electromagnetic field, under the influence of which the glass surface changes the main characteristics: light transmission and transparency.

In this case, an electric voltage is applied to the glass surface through a hidden wiring.

Smart Privacy Glass Work Flow

  1. There is a polymer liquid crystal film between the glass sheets. Without electricity, the liquid crystals in it are converted to a solid state, thus looming in a random pattern of blotches that scatter the light rays. Due to these properties of the liquid crystal film, a matte surface is obtained.
  2. The transition occurs instantly, and there is no semitone. But you can make this transition smooth. With this option, under the influence of different values of the electric voltage supply, it is possible to regulate the desired degree of transmission of light rays slowly, gradually increasing their haze.

Variable transparency glass technology converts from opaque to transparent in a fraction of a second, providing instant privacy. Which is appropriate for private spaces in the home, for example: a winter garden, a spa area, and even a bedroom to hide from unwanted prying eyes. Unique smart technology is often used in an elite country house and multi-level apartment, in the premises of business centers and offices, in banks and meeting rooms.

Adjustable tinting is gradually gaining popularity: it is an artificial darkening of glass that can be used for the car and the interior. Its peculiarity lies in the fact that the glass darkens at the request of its owner. There are different types of films and shades, which allows you to choose the color for different interior.

Benefits of using smart films

Many office buildings have glass walls inside that give the impression of an aquarium, but at the same time they can delineate the territory, letting in enough light into the hall. On the one hand, this is not bad, but on the other hand, it is not very convenient for meeting rooms when passing employees are distracting or it is important to maintain confidentiality of the conversation.

In this case, you can turn on electronic tinting, which will hide what is happening in the room from prying eyes and will indicate that the meeting room is busy. This is not a bad move for a reputable company, as it will highlight the technical literacy of the management and good taste.


Manufacturers and prices

How much does electronic tinting cost depends not only on the purchase volume, but also on which company in which country is engaged in the produc-tion of this product. On the market, most often you can find American and Chinese films, the second is much cheaper.


Electro drive on smart films

Many companies mainly focus on the production of tinting for cars, but it is quite possible to order the film of the right size, which is suitable for home glass or office partition. Some manufacturers sell the material in rolls, the buyer can cut the desired shape according to the pattern. This is convenient if you are going to edit the film yourself or if you have to do a lot of work.

If you are looking for inexpensive electronic tinting, China has a fairly large selection.

Variable transparency glass

Smart Glass, or smart glass with adjustable transparency, is an electrochromic product that turns from transparent to opaque frosted at the touch of a switch button.


The original technical and operational characteristics of this material are provided by its structure. The smart glass contains liquid crystal film. In the normal (off) mode, when the surface is opaque, the liquid crystals that make up the film are arranged in a chaotic manner. Under the influence of electric current, these elements are organized, take the desired orientation in space, and the surface becomes transparent.

This phenomenon can be compared to the situation when you are trying to see something in front, but a disordered crowd interferes. If you line up people in sparse and perfectly even ranks, the visibility immediately improves.


However, the adjustable transparency of the glass is not its only advantage. Users who have already appreciated this material note its durability, beautiful appearance and increased energy-saving qualities.

Manufacturing technology

To obtain smart glass with variable transparency, manufacturers use triplex technology:

  1. the basis of the product is triplex - a three-layer structure made of sheets of ordinary glass or polycarbonate, between which a polymer LCD film is installed;
  2. outside, on both sides, the sheets are covered with a protective film, which prevents the material from scattering into fragments upon impact;
  3. Another important element of smart glass is a conductive layer that creates an electric field that affects the crystals.

The operational characteristics of the finished structure depend on exactly how the layers are arranged. Material variations generally differ in the type of laminate used.Modifications with variable or adjustable transparency are made.

In contrast to the simply changing transparency, which changes abruptly:

1) from transparent to matte and vice versa,

2) the adjustable version allows you to change the degree of matte in halftones.

The user can set the degree of transparency that suits him: nothing is visible through the glass surface, only blurry outlines are visible, as if you are looking through a dull veil, everything is visible, etc. Variable level of transparency of windows or other designs based on smart glasses adjustable by increasing or decreasing the applied voltage.

In addition, leading manufacturers, including the FOTOTECH company, offer smart glasses for windows as part of a standard, electrically heated, protective bulletproof or fireproof glass unit. Moreover, the glass surface can be of any color, and the set, at the request of the customer, can include a frame.

Scope of application

Glass with variable transparency is used in various fields. The structure can be designed and manufactured taking into account the needs of the customer: as a window, a partition for zoning a space or a full glass wall.

1.Corporate Office

Smart glass for windows is used in the interior design of offices, meeting rooms, conference rooms, for equipping workplaces for employees of shops, ticket offices, bank employees and other institutions.


2.Commercial Areas

Products based on smart glasses are used in interior solutions for cafes, restaurants and bars. Partitions from them protect the exhibits of museums and art galleries from the sun's rays.


3.Automotive Industry

The adjustable level of opacity of the glass surface allows the use of this material in the automotive industry: for creating internal partitions, inserts into hatches.


4.High-end Residential

Partitions and windows with smart glasses are widely used in the interior design of private houses and cottages. They are used for glazing rooms, loggias, attics and effective zoning of space.
