Why choose Tecdur Privacy?

Tecdur is the leading manufacturer of smart glass for the UK and Ireland. Tecdur Privacy provides the best clarity, lowest power consumption and lowest haze currently available.  We aim to stay ahead as the technology develops.

Our electric switchable glass uses advanced PDLC liquid crystal film. The PDLC is sandwiched and sealed between two layers of glass, providing durability, reliability and extra safety.  At Tecdur we create smart glass for a range of uses. This is truly customisable glass that is dimmable from opaque to transparent and is available in light and dark versions.

Why use switchable privacy glass?

Office Space / Hospitals

Electrically switchable glass partitions gives adaptability and style to interior space. Switchable glass can easily transform a space from open and shared with the flexibility to use glass for privacy and projection when opaque. Our privacy glass is available to meet fire and acoustic needs. Furthermore it is as easily cleaned in the same way as standard glass.

Hospitality / Hotels

Provide elegance and sophistication using privacy glass in hotel bedrooms and meeting spaces. The switchable glass technology makes the perfect partition between a relaxing / sleeping space and a bathroom area providing spaciousness or privacy when needed.


Tecdur smart glass can be used for exterior windows that face the street or neighbours. Giving instant privacy without curtains or blinds. As a result this can make homes more energy efficient, solar control switchable glass can be used to reduce the infra-red light which creates heat. Smart glass partitioning of internal rooms including bathrooms is also popular.


Additionally Tecdur Privacy technology allows shopfront windows to be used for visual advertising through rear projection, turning the shopfront into an intelligent glass. For instance, promoting retail branding and products without permanently blocking windows with traditional signage or TV screens.

There are a range of types of PDLC film types which you can learn more in our in our brochure – please download here. Tecdur Privacy as a result is the ideal switchable smart glass product for architects, partitions, windows, doors, audio visual specialists and others seeking to achieve privacy and transparency at the flick of a switch.

How does electrochromic glass work?

When the electrical current is switched off the molecules mis-align and the glass turns opaque or translucent giving privacy.

When an electric charge is applied, the liquid crystal molecules align which allows light to pass through the glass.

What does electric privacy glass cost?

This is an impossible question to answer on a website when there is such a wide range of types, sizes, thicknesses, quantity and specifications.  As an indication, where a standard double glazed unit in a house may cost £60-£80 per m2, you should expect the equivalent double glazed unit in switchable privacy glass to cost roughly 8-10 times that.  Single glazed switchable glass will cost less and high performance triple glazed switchable privacy glass will cost more.  There are many variables, as a result this will give only a budgetary idea.  This cost can be offset against the cost of special blinds, curtains and the alternative glass.
