Smart glass and smart window or switchable glass and switchable window are a technology with light transmission properties, which get modified when voltage, light or heat is applied. Generally, the glass changes from a translucent glass to a transparent glass. The smart glass technology, when installed in the envelope of buildings, has the potential to create climate adaptive building shells, saving heating cost, air-conditioning and lighting. It also saves the cost of installing and maintaining motorized light screens or blinds or curtains.
Blackout smart glass has the potential to block about 99.4% of ultraviolet light, and as a result reduces fabric fading. Demand for the use of smart glasses & windows are rapidly increasing in construction sector. Either it's commercial or residential building; benefits such as security, safety, and environmental protection are some of the reasons raising the demand for smart glasses. Replacement of new and stylish bricks and new exterior glasses with old one is one of the biggest trends in construction industry.
Technology is also playing major role in the expansion of modern architecture. New high performance glass technologies have increased the refurbishment of buildings. In addition to this, switchable glass is also becoming one of the trends, as its boost insulating properties, sound transmission and UV light.
