EHD Smart Switchable Glass
EHD Smart Switchable Glass is an industry-leading switchable glass solution.
Our cutting edge technology allows you to switch from transparent to translucent and vice-versa at a tab of your fingertip.
How Smart Glass works
A simple On/Off mode switches the EHD Smart Switchable Glass from transparent to translucent. In the transparent mode, the smart switchable glass appears just like any other conventional glass panels providing unobstructed view and daylight penetration.
In translucent mode, the smart switchable glass acts as an electronic blind providing privacy and security, while still allowing daylight penetration. In ‘On’ or ‘Transparent’ mode, an electric current is passed through the PDLCs (Polymer Dispersed Liquid Crystal) interlayer which lines up the microscopic crystals along parallel axes, allowing vision through the glass.
In ‘Off’ or ‘Translucent’ mode, no electric current is applied so the PDLCs are arranged randomly in droplets, scattering light as it passes through the film. This results in a blurry milky-white colour obstructing vision through the glass.
With longevity and safety incorporated into the design of our product, you can expect EHD Smart Switchable Glass to have a lifespan of a conventional glass product.
Durability is ensured with over 70,000 hours of non-stop testing when switched to ‘On’ or ‘Transparent’ mode. Toughness and soundproofing are guaranteed with tempered glass measuring 12mm of thickness that few competitors can match. Energy saving is achieved with UV blockage of 98%, allowing occupants to enjoy a comfortable ambient while conserving energy.

EHD Smart Film
EHD Smart Film utilises the same technology as EHD Smart Glass and can be retrofitted to existing glazing or glass, performing the same function as Smart Glass.
It is manufactured as a self-adhesive film, which makes it easy to apply to both new and existing glass.
EHD Smart Switchable Film may be suitable if you want to achieve the same result as Smart Glass without replacing existing glass panels. The only difference between our Smart Glass and Smart Film is the former has the Smart Film sandwiched in between tempered glass, whereas the latter has the Smart Film applied on top of existing glass. The EHD Smart Glass will have a higher durability than Smart Film because the film itself is completely sealed off from external factors. That being said, our Smart Film are also designed and manufactured to last for years of usage!
