Company Overview

History

For over 15 years, Intelligent Glass has been developing its own range of patented switchable smart glass technology.

A British manufacturer dedicated to quality and reliability, the products manufactured by Intelligent Glass are designed to offer instant and controllable privacy using switchable smart glass.

Based on the latest polymer dispersed liquid crystal (PDLC) technology, switchable smart glass operates using a simple ON-OFF system, switching the glass from frosted to clear at the press of a button, acting as a remote controlled solution that assists with privacy, security, energy concerns and style.

Unique to the market, Intelligent Glass also offers a proprietary self-adhesive switchable film that can be retrofitted to existing windows and partitions, making this technology even more versatile and accessible.

In order to maintain the strictest quality checks put in place by Intelligent Glass, every piece of switchable glass is manufactured in a ‘Clean Room’ environment and tested before dispatch.

Clean Room Environment

 

The applications for switchable technology grow each day, and Intelligent Glass has had the pleasure of being a part of some of the most creative and exciting installations the industry has ever seen.

From award winning architecture projects, to unveiling the world’s most luxurious cars, we have seen switchable technology work well in an extremely wide range of environments, including but not limited to homes, hotels, offices, healthcare, retail, hospitality and much more. Even the creative uses of this technology is constantly being expanded.

Switchable glass technology offers users a functional high definition projection screen, as well as having sound insulating, fire rated and coloured specialist options available.

We pride ourselves on our unique range of switchable glass & film technologies with class-leading quality, flexibility and performance.

Innovation

Since 2004, Intelligent Glass has been refining and perfecting the switchable technology range we have to offer. Our Research & Development team have helped to develop both existing and new technologies, from improving our manufacturing processes, to creating innovative products such as Self Adhesive Switchable Film and Battery Powered Switchable Vision Panels.

Our dedication to continuous improvement reflects the care we take over the manufacture of each and every product we supply.

Our Products

Intelligent Glass manufactures and supplies one of the widest range of switchable glass & film products to the trade, with a guarantee of quality, reliability and optical clarity that’s over 10 years in the making. Intelligent Glass offers a complete and unique range of switchable solutions, including specialist and bespoke products for your requirements.

Our range of switchable smart products includes:

Single glazed switchable glass tends to be our most popular option worldwide, offering a cost effective solution where the liquid crystal switchable layer is coated down directly onto the glass surface. This glass is ideal for both privacy and projection applications where multiple panels can be joined together to create a large format video wall solution.

Laminate switchable glass is where the switchable layer is bonded between two sheets of glass, which makes it a safer option for both high traffic areas and wet areas e.g. bathrooms, hospitals, clean rooms etc. This durable solid state technology replaces the need for old fashioned blinds or curtains offering greater control and comfort within any room.

Double / triple glazed switchable glass utilises a warm edge spacer bar with an argon filled air gap in between to offer greater insulation and performance. Depending upon the customer requirements we offer a variety of glass options e.g. low iron, low E coatings to provide the most efficient DGU/IGU panels on the market today.

Self adhesive switchable film is designed specifically to retrofit to existing glass or other transparent surfaces, it provides a simple and cost effective alternative to other switchable smart glass 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 (no specialist installation equipment required). This film is ideal for both privacy and projection applications where multiple panels can be joined together to create a large format video wall solution.

Vision panel door systems are the very latest innovation from Intelligent Glass, allowing discreet visibility into (or out of) a room at the push of a button. Powered by a replaceable AA battery pack, concealed within the door, our switchable vision panels work
independently of mains power. This gives excellent flexibility and little or no disruption during installation.
