What is Photochromic Smart Glass?

Photochromic glass promotes sustainable architecture and compliance with green building standards such as LEED and BREEAM, by allowing interiors to meet the minimum daylighting requirements of 300 lux across 50% of building space, without the accompanying increase in HVAC costs.


What is Thermochromic Smart Glass?

Thermochromic smart glass reduces solar heat gain into buildings, reducing air conditioning costs and contributing to ‘net-zero’ construction.

Colour Rendering of Smart Glass for Healthcare

The colour rendering capabilities of smart glass facades in healthcare facilities can directly influence medical diagnoses that rely on a visual observation of the colour of human tissue.


What Is PDLC Smart Glass?

With no applied voltage, the liquid crystals in PDLC smart glass orient randomly and scatter light. When an electrical signal is applied, the liquid crystals orient themselves parallel to each other, allowing light through and illuminating parts of the building which would otherwise remain in darkness.

The Untapped Potential of Smart Glass

Smart glass materials, both active and passive, offer huge benefits in reducing air conditioning costs by dynamically limiting solar radiation in buildings and vehicles. They also offer privacy for healthcare and exclusivity for retailers, adjusting their behaviour to changing solar conditions.

Whether you are an architect, interior designer, smart city advocate, transportation engineer or consumer appliance manufacturer, smart glass can bring sustainable and intelligent solutions for your customers.
