How Does AKAL Switchable Privacy Glass Work?

Switchable privacy glass comprises laminated nanometer-sized particulate suspended in a liquid. It is a liquid crystal dispersed in a polymer with adjustable light-scattering capabilities, which can be controlled through the use of electricity. Such a laminate is enclosed in between two sheets of plastic or transparent glass or secured to a single layer of either of these materials. Under ideal conditions, particles suspended in the laminate are randomly placed and block and absorb light, making the glass and laminate opaque. It is only when tension is applied to this laminate that the suspended particulate aligns themselves, allowing light to pass through, rendering the partition transparent.

The supply voltage can be altered to ensure that varying amounts of light can pass through. They can also have more precise control to allow a known amount of light, heat, and glare to pass through. This can be done manually or automatically. The film or laminate has a conductive copper strip along its edges that allows for the conduction of electricity. This film is powered by a step-down transformer. Automatic controls can activate this privacy at any time and can even be connected to light sensors that are activated when a certain level of light is detected.

The privacy glass can be converted into a projection screen if required and eliminates the need for curtains and other furniture. This can be very useful in areas where hygiene is a concern.

Electric Glass Frosting

Our switchable glass is energy efficient and a powerful tool to open up offices and illuminate rooms with natural light. 

Our switchable privacy glass uses a low-voltage electrical current to arrange liquid crystal molecules into a pattern that makes glass transparent when turned on. Turned off, the liquid crystal molecules revert to a random pattern, diffusing the light and causing the glass to become opaque.

Glass is increasingly used in offices to provide partitions between workspaces. The use of this material allows natural light from outside windows to be available to the entire working area, while still creating some privacy between areas. Glass also increases energy efficiency because of its physical qualities. The disadvantage of this increased use, however, is the loss of privacy that is often necessary for offices when confidential matters need to be discussed.

Fortunately, technology has come up with the solution of switchable privacy glass where glass gets transferred from transparent to opaque and back again with the simple use of a switch. They can even be operated by apps, or even through motion sensors that see the wave of a hand. Switchable privacy glass can be used in many situations besides offices and is installed in shower enclosures, changing rooms in retail stores, transaction windows, and anywhere where such changeable partitions are desired.
