Switchable Glass is a laminated glass with a liquid crystal inter-layer that carries an electrical charge. When current runs through the glass inter-layer the crystals align which makes the glass transparent. However when the power is turned off, the crystals randomly overlap causing an opaque privacy glass.
Great for when a clear or tinted appearance glass pane is required, then with flick of a switch the glass pane goes from transparent to opaque, offering privacy.
Uses include projector screen walls, meeting rooms, bathroom divider walls etc.
