Unique benefits of Solar Smart Glass

  • Precisely control the level of light, glare and heat entering your building. Solar Smart Glass can be tuned up or down, just like a TV volume, to give the user complete control of the internal environment. This increases occupant comfort and productivity.
  • In an era of ever-increasing energy costs, the ability to precisely control light, heat and glare gives Solar Smart Glass a return on investment that no other glass product can offer. It not only means internal lights are switched on later, reducing energy consumption, but also reduces the need for summer cooling and winter heating.
  • Control the light but preserve the views. Solar Smart Glass allows users to darken a room but preserve great views. Conventional curtains and blinds obscure the views from hotels rooms and penthouse apartments. Why pay a premium for a great view that you cannot see? Solar Smart Glass preserves the view whist shading the space.
  • Shading of curved and difficult to reach windows. There are so many examples of situations where traditional blinds simply cannot work – curved facades, awkward shapes such as gables and high up, difficult-to-reach applications such as roof lights. In such instances, Solar Smart Glass provides an elegant and efficient shading solution.
  • Instant control. Solar Smart Glass switches from darkest to lightest and back again in less than 10 seconds, with perfectly uniform transition throughout the panel, regardless of size.
  • Curves, shapes and bends are all possible – no other product offers such versatility. Use it as part of double or triple glazed units for even greater environmental benefits.


The perfect backdrop for presentations

Solar Smart Glass by Smartglass International is the ideal solution for hotel and office facades, home theatre applications and boardroom walls. It’s perfect for anywhere that presentations are made or video conferencing is completed, creating multifunctional spaces at the flick of a switch.

Where instant & precise light control is required

Solar Smart Glass has been installed in T.V studios, residential roof lights, home cinema rooms, office screens & partitions and hotel rooms. Its unique benefits make it the product of choice where instant and precise control of the environment is a must.

To combat light pollution

In city centre locations where light pollution has become a planning issue, Solar Smart Glass allows architects and designers to create light filled spaces by day whilst complying with stringent planning laws at night.
