It is no different in the area of windows. Here, too, we can now have those precise and exact glass products in the exact design we require. Not only has glass become “smarter”, but it can now transition – from clear to opaque – and back again, offering a unique and unparalleled advantage to your glassy experience. So what does this transition really mean – with the simple flick of a switch you could make the glass completely transparent on one hand, or flick the switch and it is clear to see through.
Any application is possible from boardroom walls, office partitions, bathroom panels – switchable glass, pardon the pun is available at the flick of a switch.
For those of you who watched a TV show called “Lie to Me” and watched thegood Doctor Lightman and his team work their magic in a glass cube, then with theflick of a switch the outside world became visible to the unsuspecting guest – well you experienced switchable opaque glass right there on your TV screen.
So how does it work for you at home, your window looks exactly the same, but insidethe frame is a transformer conducting a very low level of current through the glass when you flick the switch.
So we supply your commercial window order to you and install it – just like normal. The glass and the transformer are either installed in our factory or onsite – ready for your electrician to connect.
We used this is a residence in Byron Bay, the lower sections of the window ensure the privacy of the inhabitants, whilst the upper panel ensure they still enjoy the view across the National Park.
We used iGlass as our supplier (https://www.iglassliving.com.au/) – there are several other firms offering similar products but we found their service to be excellent – check out these links to learn more about transitioning – switchable glass (https://www.iglassswitchable.com.au/)
