Smart glass technology has been in existence for many years. But, like all sophisticated and innovative technologies, its initial iterations were expensive and general market awareness was low. The technology has changed from where it was originally gas in between two glass panels and now it is a PDLC film that is laminated in between two pieces of glass or the smart film can be applied to existing glass or any transparent surface.
Recently, raw materials have become more accessible, decreasing prices, and growing demand rapidly. With a background in electrical work and visual design, Opaque™ was created to offer best-in class service to clients ranging from residences and hospitality, to commercial and government institutions.
Sustainable and Cost-Effective Solution
Opaque Smart Film is a type of window film that can switch from transparent to opaque on demand, allowing you to control the amount of light and privacy in a room. Unlike traditional smart glass, which requires the entire glass panel to be replaced, Opaque Smart Film can be applied directly to existing glass, making it a cost-effective and environmentally friendly option.By installing Opaque Smart Film instead of replacing your existing glass with smart glass, you can significantly reduce your carbon footprint. The production of glass requires a large amount of energy, and the process of replacing glass can be both time-consuming and expensive. In
contrast, applying Opaque Smart Film involves a much simpler and less resource-intensive process.
Additionally, Opaque Smart Film is more energy-efficient than traditional glass. It can help to reduce the amount of energy required to heat and cool a building by reducing solar heat gain and increasing insulation. This, in turn, can help to reduce your energy bills and your carbon
