Switchable smart glass is one of the most innovative and intelligent building technologies to emerge in the last decade. Such is the growing popularity of this innovative technology that the smart glass market is set to reach $3.75bn by 2026, a compound annual growth rate of over 12%, as residential and commercial architects and designers worldwide are increasingly incorporating smart technology into their designs.
An incredible, versatile architectural solution, switchable smart glass offers much promise in terms of improving building aesthetics, functionality, and privacy in both residential and commercial builds. Switchable SPD SOLAR smart glass allows the user to adjust the amount of light and heat that enters the building, reducing thermal transmittance through a glass façade, providing 99% UV protection and lowering HVAC cost by up to 30%, while Privacy Smartglass ensures privacy on demand, turning from opaque to clear in 0.01 seconds.
Switchable smart glass redefines environments in an instant, facilitating the creation of multi-functional spaces that adapt and respond to the needs of users and helping to navigate key design challenges. The ease of use and 10+ years life expectancy makes switchable glass technology a worthwhile investment and it’s easy to see why it has become such a popular application in residential homes, office buildings, hospitals, hotels, airports and schools and universities and leisure facilities.
