Glasswerks L.A. Partner with Citala

In an ongoing effort to find unique smart-glass solutions for everything from single-family homes to hospitals, Glasswerks Inc. -- a leader in commercial and architectural glass fabrication -- has partnered with Citala to offer innovative, customized “on-demand” privacy glass.

Glasswerks is proud to announce the inclusion of Citala’s Onyx™-based Innovative Smart Films in its Voltage Glass products.With this technology, users can change the translucency of a window in a house or a building from opaque to transparent with the simple flip of a switch. Citala’s proprietary Onyx™ is a unique chemical compound that begins in liquid form and becomes solid when cured. In its "off state," Glasswerks’ Voltage Glass with Onyx™ Film is opaque, and in an “on state” (when voltage is applied) the glass becomes transparent.

“This partnership allows Glasswerks to move into a growing segment of the glass marketplace,” says James Harris, Citala’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Glasswerks also provides customers the opportunity to customize privacy glass in a variety of designs, shapes, sizes, and shades.” For more information on Voltage privacy glass with Citala’s Onyx™ Film or to learn more about Glasswerks custom glass products, call Glasswerks at (888) 789-7810 or go to www.glasswerks.com.
