Tecdur Privacy Glass is an electrically switchable glass designed to provide switchable privacy or transparency in commercial or residential settings.
Tecdur Privacy Glass is a switchable glass product designed to provide switchable privacy or transparency in commercial or residential settings. Tecdur Privacy Glass is a laminated glass product which incorporates our advanced liquid crystal film (PDLC) and uses a small electrical current to switch between clear and opaque states.
When an electrical current is switched on, the liquid crystal molecules align which allows light to pass through the glass causing transparency. When the electrical current is switched off the molecules misalign and the glass appears opaque and translucent. The opacity is caused by the light being scattered by the now randomly orientated molecules which provides users with privacy without compromising light transmission.
Whether you are considering an office, hospital, retail, hotel or residential application, Tecdur Privacy Glass can eliminate the need for blinds or curtains, instead providing the ability to transition between clear and opaque states at the flick of a switch.
Applications can include:
The applications are limited only by your imagination.
Tecdur Privacy Glass is controlled by our CE marked controllers which ensure that all panels operate at a consistently low and safe voltage. The power consumption of our switchable privacy glass is so impressive that we believe it is the most efficient privacy glass in the UK and Ireland. Beyond the simple on/off functionality, we also offer a dimmer controller which gives users the flexibility to manage their privacy and internal light conditions. By doing so, users can potentially reduce the need for, and cost of, artificial lighting.
Over the last 15 years, our commitment to continuous research and development has given us the competitive edge in technical know-how and in-house manufacturing capabilities. Tecdur Privacy Glass is one example of this effort. Over the last 5 years our switchable privacy glass has been rigorously tested and developed to perform as expected. Unlike other switchable privacy glass products, Tecdur Privacy Glass doesn’t need to be switched off to preserve performance and life expectancy. Generally, Tecdur products is manufactured in accordance with strict quality control processes and procedures as stipulated by our ISO 9001 certification. In addition our laminated glass products have been tested by leading independent certifiers such as BRE and TNO. This level of independent scrutiny gives our customers the confidence that Tecdur will perform as expected.
We also recognise that in order to meet modern design requirements, projects often require increasingly advanced glass systems. Tecdur Privacy Glass can be enhanced to provide additional performance benefits such as manual attack resistance [EN356, LPS1270/LPS1175], sound reduction, fire resistance [Exova, CertiFire], ballistic resistance [EN1063] and blast resistance. Whichever the requirement, our technical team can provide all levels of assistance.
Together, Tecdur Privacy Glass is the ideal switchable privacy glass product for architects, partitioners, audio visual specialists and others seeking to achieve privacy and transparency at the flick of a switch.
