FAQs

Pricing

How much is switchable privacy glass?

The cost of switchable privacy glass varies widely depending on the size, customisation, and installation requirements. On average, prices can range from £40 to over £80 per square foot. Custom sizes and additional features like UV protection or colour tinting can increase the cost.

Switchable privacy film, which can be applied to existing glass, is a more budget-friendly option. It typically costs between £20 and £40 per square foot. The price difference is mainly due to the ease of installation and the absence of the need to replace existing glass.

Value and Comparison  

Is switchable glass worth it?

Whether switchable glass is worth the investment depends on your needs and preferences. It offers benefits such as instant privacy and a modern aesthetic and may contribute to energy savings by regulating light transmission. For commercial spaces or homes where these benefits align with the owner's values, it can be worth the cost.

Is smart glass better than curtains?

Smart glass and curtains serve different preferences and budgets. Smart glass provides a sleek, modern look and can switch between opaque and transparent states instantly, offering privacy without sacrificing natural light. Curtains can offer a wider variety of designs, are much cheaper, and can be easily replaced. The choice between the two often comes down to aesthetic preference, budget, and the specific functional needs of a space.

What is the difference between switchable glass and switchable film?

Switchable glass is a complete glass panel that switches from opaque to transparent when an electrical current is applied. Switchable film is a thin film that can be applied to existing glass surfaces to provide the same effect. The main difference is that switchable glass requires replacing existing windows or installations. In contrast, switchable film can be added to existing glass, making it a more flexible and less expensive option.

Characteristics  

What is the life span of switchable glass?

The life span of switchable glass can vary based on the quality of the product and the conditions of use, but it is typically around 15 to 20 years. Proper installation and minimal mechanical stress can extend its life span.

Does smart glass reduce heat?

Yes, smart glass can reduce heat transmission. By blocking UV rays when in the opaque state, it can help in maintaining cooler indoor temperatures during hot weather, potentially leading to energy savings on air conditioning.

Is smart glass soundproof?

Smart glass isn't inherently soundproof, but it can contribute to a slight reduction in noise transmission. For significant soundproofing, special acoustic glazing would be more effective.

How thick is switchable glass?

The thickness of switchable glass typically ranges from 5mm to 12mm, but it can vary based on the manufacturer and the specific product line. Custom thicknesses can also be produced for specific applications.

Does smart glass use electricity?

Yes, smart glass requires a small amount of electricity to switch from opaque to transparent states. However, when it's in either state (opaque or transparent), it does not consume electricity. The energy usage is minimal, especially compared to traditional heating, cooling, and lighting costs.

Economic Factors  

Why is the switch expensive?

The cost of switchable glass technology is high due to the complex manufacturing process, which involves laminating a layer of liquid crystal film between two pieces of glass and then sealing them with a conductive material. The materials used, along with the technology required to manufacture and install these glass panels, contribute to the higher cost.

Why are switches still so expensive?

The pricing remains high due to consistent demand in both commercial and high-end residential markets, the technological innovation it represents, and the relatively niche market. As the technology matures and becomes more widespread, prices may decrease.
