Conference rooms are where presentations, brainstorming and meetings take place, so they are usually placed in the most beautiful area of an office floor, even if they are not frequently used. While privacy is often needed in boardrooms and meeting rooms, this doesn’t mean they have to be sectioned off from the rest of the office. Doing so can cut out natural light and make your office space feel smaller. Fortunately, there are design innovations that enable you to impress your clients with your boardroom design and hold confidential meetings while maximizing natural light, views and connectivity throughout your office floor.
Switchable glass technology offers a flexible solution for windows and glass walls in conference rooms by going from clear to frosted with the flick of a switch. Through the action of Polymer-Dispersed Liquid Crystal (PDLC) technology, openness and privacy can co-exist. Smart film can be applied as a retrofit option, transforming regular glass into switchable glass. Smart Glass is installed just like regular glass.
Smart glass products add a ‘wow’ factor to your meeting space. Switchable glass goes from transparent to opaque in a fraction of a second, as though by magic. You can switch the glass via a wall switch, remote control, button, smartphone or voice command, eliminating the need to deal with curtains or motorized blinds when hosting clients. In addition to providing privacy and cutting the glare from sunlight, smart glass can be used as a whiteboard and rear projection screen. Smart Privacy Glass can also embed switchable logos, smart blinds or artistic designs within the glass to add a truly custom touch to your space.
Smart glass is ideal for both new developments and refurbishments. Smart Glass Country works with many contractors and our PDLC products can be installed on all types of frames, tracks, doors and partition systems. We offer special wiring solutions for sliding doors and retractable glass walls.
