Switchable Glass in the Hospitality Sector

Themes are an important aspect of business that is common in the hospitality sector. Many industries such as hotels, restaurants and clubs often capitalise on a theme to attract customers, and in many cases, themes of extravagance and luxury are usually high on the agenda.

Intelligent Glass provides an engaging way of enforcing your premium theme whilst offering a practical solution to privacy and maintenance requirements. By putting the technology in the hands of your customers, for example, as part of a hotel shower room, they are sure to be impressed by the stimulating creativity that Intelligent Glass demonstrates.

Switchable glass in hospitality is a proven sensation, having been installed in a wide range of venues, including hotels, bars & clubs, restaurants, health spas, clinics, bedrooms, bathrooms and many more. We also have a wide variety of high profile customers who have installed the awe inspiring and captivating Switchable Glass as part of their projects.

Why Switchable Glass?

Unlike blinds or curtains, Intelligent Glass offers a low maintenance, cost effective and impressive solution for instant privacy. Without restricting the flow of light, switchable glass helps to transform previously dark corridors into spaces that feel open and bright.

In addition to being a sophisticated and futuristic technology, our glass also boasts minimalist styling that’s sure to wow any visitor. With excellent insulating properties against heat loss, UV light and sound transmission, our range takes energy performance seriously with double and triple glazed switchable glass that offers warm edge spacers, low E, low iron, and an argon filling.

It’s also as simple as a light bulb to operate, meaning that it can be integrated into room control and automation systems, making it an excellent addition to top end hi-tech environments.

The applications of this technology are limited only by your imagination and vary greatly. We have seen our glass used for numerous projects, everything from furniture and display cases to live events and visitor attractions.  A few typical uses of our switchable glass in hospitality are as follows-


As briefly mentioned above, a common application of our glass is for shower/wet rooms and hotel bathrooms, providing stylish discretion for your customers. Switchable glass partitions are also very popular, allowing hotels to offer visitors the ability to segregate their room at will.

Our innovative battery-powered switchable glass door vision panels work exceptionally well in hotel room doors, providing constant privacy until the press of a button to reveal what’s on the other side. These panels remove the need for expensive and disruptive cabling work, as all the components are contained in a small unit, concealed within the door itself. A small modification to hotel rooms will return a huge advance in positive first impressions and your customer’s enthusiasm.

Bars & Clubs

The bar and club industry is very competitive, often meaning that every aspect of a venue is under scrutiny.

Switchable glass adds both interior design flair and practical privacy to bars and clubs looking for a stylish and stimulating advantage over their competitors. As our glass can double as a projection screen when frosted, it can also play a vital role in the entertaining and informing of visitors, allowing you to integrate the screen as part of the onsite entertainment or in shows.

Another great application can be found in the ability to influence atmosphere at the flick of a switch.

Having switchable glass installed in any bar windows will allow for greater control over the environment your customers are in, enabling you to instantly transform an exposed area into a closed off area, creating greater intimacy in your venue if required.


Recent applications of our switchable glass in restaurants has seen it used mainly, but not exclusively, for partitioning. An ingenious design we like sees the glass used to partition the kitchen area from the customer eating area, allowing for customers to see into the kitchen when activated, but still providing privacy for times when this is not desirable.

This application makes for an effective and versatile customer attraction, also giving you the opportunity to project anything (such as visualisations, slideshows, adverts etc.) onto the screen when frosted.

Installing switchable glass into windows also offers you an enhanced level of control over your restaurant’s atmosphere, regulating how intimate or exposed your area is.

Our glass can also serve as an incredibly powerful style choice. With its contemporary styling, switchable glass is sure to impress customers with luxury/ premium expectations from your venue.


An important feature of our switchable glass is its versatility. We pride ourselves on our expert knowledge and years of experience which enables us to appropriately advise and assist with exciting projects that specify our products. If you have an idea for a great application, we would love to hear from you.

There are countless ways you can apply this technology- the applications are limited only by your imagination. We can manufacture single panels for smaller projects or even bulk orders for large scale projects such as refurbishments.
