There are a few different kinds of glass that offer a degree of privacy. One simple solution is tinted glass, whereby a tinted film is applied to a clear window. A more sophisticated option is electric privacy glass, which can offer varying levels of opacity depending on a user’s needs.
How Do They Work?
Electric privacy windows are composed of PDLC, which stands for Polymer Dispersed Liquid Crystal Film. By applying a small current to this film it is possible to variegate the level of opacity on the window, which delivers an extra layer of control over other forms of private glass.
What are the Advantages of This Kind of System?
There are lots of benefits of this kind of electrically controlled private class. Firstly, there is increased user control, so that users can very quickly create private environments or open up their environments at the touch of a button.
Private glass can be used to increase security. When a building is in use its windows can be clarified to make the environment more ergonomic and aesthetically attractive. When not in use, the building can be occluded thus heightening security and hiding the contents of the building, which could be valuable.
Even though the system uses electricity it is able to operate on low voltage, and further energy savings can be made with reduced A/C cooling. So, electric glass is a solution well designed to meet modern concerns for the environment.
