With natural daylight playing a critical role in building ergonomics, LC Smart Glass offers an ideal solution to the design brief by improving workspace design and creating a stimulating work environment.
LC Smart Glass was specified for this project to allow instant and precise privacy control for each meeting room situated along the corridor. Floor to ceiling LC Smart Glass panels are installed within a partition wall system as well as within the doors leading in to each meeting room. Switchable glass reduces the uncomfortable “gold fish bowl” feeling when working in high density office spaces.
All LC Smart Glass panels are bespoke manufactured using a lamination process which encapsulates a PDLC film between 2 or more glass sheets. Using a minute electrical current, users can immediately switch the LC Smart Glass from clear to private (opaque) and vice versa.
LC Smart Glass has exceptional optical qualities that reduce eye strain and glare thus creating a more comfortable working environment. Visible light transmission is only reduced by 8% when the glass is in its opaque state meaning internal lighting is not affected when the glass is switched on/off throughout the day.
As the advance of technology , smart glass will be more and more popular ,the demand of smart glass will be large in the construction industry.
