SmartGlass International – Leading supplier of switchable glass in the UAE

To meet the rising demand for electronically switchable glass, SmartGlass International has emerged to become the leading supplier of smart glass in the UAE.

As one of the UAE’s largest specialist suppliers of electronically switchable smart glass products, SmartGlass International is able to manufacture and supply a multi-purpose building material that can be used in a variety of different contexts for a number of different purposes.

SmartGlass International specializes in two types of electronically switchable glass products, LC SmartGlass and SPD SmartGlass.

LC SmartGlass is used for privacy purposes allowing instant privacy at the flick of a switch. Using a minute electrical current, users can immediately switch the LC SmartGlass from clear to private (opaque) and vice versa. LC SmartGlass is easily installed and uses a minute electrical current. Various configurations can be supplied including color tinted, fire rated, double glazed, curved and shaped.

SPD-SmartGlass can be manually or automatically “tuned” to precisely control the amount of light, glare and heat passing through a window. While glass is a favored product for use in building facades; glare, solar heat gain and UV exposure are problematic and can often make the use of glass impractical resulting in the need to invest in expensive solar shading devices. Glass facades using patented SPD light-

control technology reduce the need for air conditioning during the summer months and heating during winter. The ability to instantly switch the glass to maximize daylight when it’s really needed and to provide controllable solar shading during peak light conditions is valuable and unique.

While 4/5 of the UAE is desert, the region is home to many dynamic world class cities full of architectural innovation. More buildings in more cities throughout the UAE are using innovative smart glass products to improve the lives of visitors and citizens in the region.
