Electric Glass

SSI offers Switchable Electric Privacy Glass that switches on demand from frosted to clear. Best of all, it remains that way until you choose to change it. The glass uses of a thin layer of Polymer Dispersed Liquid Crystal (PDLC) that comes pre-configured in finished glass or laminated into an adhesive film. When an electrical current is applied, the liquid crystals line up to switch the glass from an opaque state to a clear state. Alternately, when the electrical current is removed, the liquid crystals return to their scattered positions and switch the glass back to opaque.

The Many Uses

Electric privacy glass has many uses that benefit all industries, from medical to industrial. Screen Solutions International provides you with a turnkey package that replaces your existing glass and turns it into switchable glass.

This instant-on, instant-off electric glass can be controlled in many ways. Standard switches, timers, and built-in automation systems allow you to maximize the energy-saving benefits of electric glass.

The Many Benefits of Electric Switchable Glass

Electric Privacy glass

SSI Electric Glass has completely transitioned to a Low Voltage Powered Product. We no longer offer a 110v option, all our glass will be powered from a power supply that reduces voltage. Now our electric glass can be wired with low voltage wiring and carried minimum current.
