Privacy Glass - PRIVA-LITE

Switchable glass for modular partitioning & locations that require privacy

What is PRIVA-LITE?

Privacy glass - often known as smart glass, intelligent glass or switchable glass - is ideal for providing opaque glass on demand in commercial buildings and residential properties. 

Manufactured to the highest standard by Saint-Gobain, PRIVA-LITE technology is a thermal and sound-insulating laminated glazing solution incorporating a liquid crystal film that can manage transparency on demand, changing instantly from clear state to translucent, and vice versa.

The liquid crystals align when the electrical current is switched on, causing the glass to turn transparent instantly. When the power is switched off, the glass has a naturally opaque appearance, blocking vision (total privacy), yet permitting light to pass through (translucent).

Why privacy glass?

PRIVA-LITE, our privacy glass, switches between transparent and opalescent states instantaneously and silently, which removes the need for blinds or curtains. 

PRIVA-LITE offers the perfect blend of privacy and freedom. It offers a sleek, sophisticated interior or exterior solution that switches between transparent and opalescent states instantaneously and silently, eliminating the need for curtains or blinds. The privacy glass completely obscures the view without compromising light transmission, reducing the need for, and cost of, artificial lighting.

PRIVA-LITE also has a highly effective rear-projection surface - making it ideal for office spaces and meeting rooms.

Our switchable glass has low power consumption (only 0-3 W/m2, depending on state), with long-term durability and reliability with no maintenance costs.
