What skills Smart Tint Glass requires to stick on window? (Privacy Glass Benefits)
Enhanced Security with smart tint glass
Basically, the most vulnerable part of a property is the glass. This vulnerability has contributed to damage associated with vandalism, natural disasters, and accidents. When glass breaks down, smart tint glass holds the fragments together, preventing damage and reducing danger.
Why do you need to install smart tint glass?
The advantage of the new product lies in a system that provides more comfort to the user. Furthermore, it allows the regulation of the amount of light through electronic systems.
The use of an intelligent glass system provides significant cost savings in terms of heating, cooling and lighting consumption. This innovative product manages to filter 99% of UV rays and a decrease in transmittance.
The versatility in the game between opacity and transparency provides the Smart Glass product with various applications related to obtaining and regulating privacy. We can use smart tint glass as an interior partitioning element.
For instance, we can apply it both in the business environment as a dividing element, or in private spaces such as bathrooms. Another functional use is that of a projection screen or security element.
In addition to these interior applications, we can use Smart Glass as exterior glass, enhancing the architectural integration of solar technology.
How does smart tint glass control the light?
Smart privacy glass allows the control of the light that passes through them. In addition, it becomes transparent or opaque through the simple operation of a switch or a remote control.
To create or transform a glass into a smart glass, a Smart Privacy Film or “Smart Film” is very common. Moreover, this comes with pdlc technology
A glass containing smart film will look like frosted or satin glass. Ina addition, it does not allow you to see what is on the other side. But when you operate a control, it will become transparent in a fraction of a second.
The smart tint glass system is marketed in two formats:
- Laminated Smart Glasses: This come to measure, containing the Smart Film sheet inside.
- Self-adhesive Smart Privacy Sheets: It allows you to transform any glass or transparent material already installed into a smart glass.
Smart tint glass provides instant and precise control of privacy and security without compromising architectural integrity
99% UV protection
Protection against UV radiation, avoiding the fading of paintings, furniture, carpets, art objects, etc.
It controls the room temperature. Moreover, it provides energy saving in lighting and air conditioning. Low consumption, less than 5w per m2.
Aesthetically simple and pleasant for all types of projects. Better use of space, when replacing blinds or curtains.
Highly recommended for use in laboratories, health centers, offices and in environments where the use of curtains is not recommended to maintain asepsis.
Smart Glass as Projection Screen
Possibility of using it as a screen, both for direct projection and for rear projection. Similarly, this makes it possible to take advantage of glass surfaces in meeting rooms, or to design a commercial window with high impact.
We can control smart tint glass by a simple switch, a remote control or an application on the Smartphone or Tablet. It is also possible to include these devices within the growing field of home automation (smart homes) and the Internet of Things (IoT – Internet of Things).
They can also serve as a screen for projections and. If we combine it with a touch device, glass window can be transformed into a touch screen. In addition, it opens the way to countless interactive applications:
- in educational centers
- shopping centers
- museums, etc.
Yes, the system is sold in self-adhesive sheets, made to measure, which can transform an already installed glass into an INTELLIGENT GLASS. We also manufacture laminated glass containing smart film.
What is the maximum size of SMART GLASSES?
The maximum width of the self-adhesive sheets is 1.50 meters. Moreover, the recommended length is 3.20 meters.
The maximum width of laminated smart tint glass is 1.80 meters and the maximum length is 3.00 meters.
What skills are required for sticking the smart tint glass?
To install the self-adhesive sheet we recommend doing a training, which we can provide online, at no additional cost. Unlike polarized, satin, decorative, etc. self-adhesive sheets. Furthermore, this product has an electrical connection on one side that must be hidden.
Basically, it is often necessary to disassemble the opening. so we recommend that installers have experience in assembling and disassembling carpentry and handling glass.
Is the electrical connection complicated?
The electrical installation is simple in fixed panels and somewhat more complex in sliding or swing systems. Wglass provides tailored solutions to solve the connections in each project.
How smart tint glass priced and what is its cost?
It is priced per m2 and per project, considering the quantities and location of the work. The pieces are made to measure, so it is necessary to have the precise dimensions of the glasses.
Smart tint glass is intelligent because they are able to regulate it according to the environmental conditions. This ability allows buildings to increase their energy efficiency. In general, we can say that the glass they are made of is “dynamic”.
According to the environmental conditions and the needs of the users, who can control via a remote, both the thermal properties and the light transmission change. Thanks to sensors they are able to detect the external temperature, automatically adjusting the tonal intensity of the surface.
Smart Glass is Photochromic: How?
Photochromic , when the Sun produces the change. The light transmission changes itself according to the quality of the light incident on the surface. Their variation, in fact, is influenced by exposure to ultraviolet rays.
The optical characteristics are such as to darken the glasses with increasing radiation. On the contrary, with the dark, they become clear and transparent. This particularity comes during the processing phase by mixing organic or inorganic materials sensitive to ultraviolet rays in the glass paste.
The most commonly used inorganic materials are metal halides, especially silver ones. This photosensitive process comes on the reversible decomposition of these microcrystals.
Thermochromic , when their light absorption varies according to the external surface temperature, so the more it increases the more the glass becomes opaque. Therefore, this property comes with a coating of the glass sheet.
Smart tint glass changes the transparency through polymers. So they become opaque when they coagulate above the critical temperature. And transparent when they become soluble when the degree of heat is lowered.
Which technology smart tint glass uses?
The smart tint glass uses a technology that controls the amount of light that passes through a window, absorbing or reflecting it. It only lets light through, not heat, making cooling or maintaining the room temperature more efficient.
These devices come on redox, that is, the reaction between two components. Furthermore, it exchanges electrons, triggered by a low voltage electric current. They found in a small electricity generator, itself sandwiched between two films or sheets of glass.
The chemical-physical principle on which this system is based allows the modulation of the potential difference, raising or lowering the light and infrared transmission.
Electrochromic glasses have the advantage of having a memory effect. Therefore it is not necessary to keep the electric field active to maintain the reached state. To make the transparent glass return, a new electrical impulse of the opposite signal need.
