Smart film switchable glass
Designed to retrofit to existing transparent surfaces, self-adhesive switchable film provides a simple and cost effective alternative to other switchable film technologies. It is manufactured with a self-adhesive cling layer on one side (peel and stick) which makes it easy to apply to both new and existing glass.
A simple ON - OFF mode switches the film from being clear (transparent) to frosted (opaque). In its frosted state the film acts as an electronic blind providing privacy and security for any glass, window or partition. The control can be integrated with a switch, iPads, Amazon Alexa or remote controls.
Self-adhesive switchable film is available in two standard widths 1000mm (38.6") and 1200mm (47.3") and can be cut to any size. Custom shapes and sizes are available and multiple pieces can be joined together to create large switchable glazed panels or partitions.
This unique film technology also transforms any glass into a high definition rear projection screen allowing you to display corporate presentations, TV images and videos. A truly innovative product making switchable glass technology accessible to everyone while giving your home or business the added WOW factor.
