Smart glass or privacy Glass is dynamic, allowing a traditionally static material to become alive and multifunctional. This technology allows for the control of various forms of light including visible light, UV, and IR. Privacy glass products are based on technologies that allow transparent materials (like glass or polycarbonate) to switch, on-demand, from clear to shaded, or completely opaque.
In the simplest definition, smart glass technologies alter the amount of light transmitted through typically transparent materials, allowing these materials to appear as transparent, translucent, or opaque. The technologies behind smart glass help resolve the conflicting design and functional demands for balancing the benefits of natural light, views, and open floor plans with the need for energy conservation and privacy.
AluFab Metals is a leader in glass fabrication, supply, and installation of any glass and mirror. We also provide a high tech privacy solution which is known as switchable glass, smart glass, intelligent glass, and electric glass. Switchable glass is often controlled manually or mechanically, automatic management is often programmed to modify on or off throughout bound times of a day or the system is often connected to lightweight sensors to activate once an exact level of sunshine is detected. instead, it is often programmed to activate with movement sensors, remote controls, and normal button switches.
In addition, AluFab Metals supply fire rated glass, color tinted, curved and shaped, and other types of specialty glass.
Rooms and internal space may be designed with partition walls made of the privacy glass that is available in all sizes and shapes giving creative architects and designers a lot of interesting and innovative opportunities to create commercial spaces, private offices, shop windows, and conferences halls. The privacy glass can be used as a projection screen for presentations or movies and it gives us a perfect projection background with no need for a separate screen. With a wide range of applications and benefits of privacy, glass architects can implement the most challenging ideas. Our product is ideal to create glass walls, spatial structures, and internal and external construction.

Advantages of private glass HTG:
- Functionality transition from opaque to transparent in milliseconds.
- Safety and durability of the use of laminated safety glass could be also tempered (more than seven times stronger to mechanical impacts).
- Protection privacy glass can be combined with bulletproof, safety, and fireproof glass.
- Soundproofing increased noise reduction due to the use of laminated glass.
- UV control, control of solar energy exceptional optical quality with excellent light transmission, blocking over 99% of UV rays.
