Designing with Switchable Glass

M3 Glass Technologies offers our MVision Switchable Glass- a custom switchable glass, or “smart glass,” which uses liquid crystal film technology that allows the product to go from opaque to transparent with just the flip of a switch.

To provide further customization options, we utilize our in-house customizable sizing, printing, and glass finish processes to offer smart glass with unparalleled optical performance and ultra-low haze.

Our switchable glass panel products are used in both commercial and residential settings to effectively allow users to quickly choose between open and private spaces.

Often used in spaces as partitions or walls, switchable glass offers an added level of privacy as users are able to go from clear to opaque with the simple flip of a switch. These features have made switchable glass an interesting design tool, and these products are becoming increasingly popular to help create multifunctional spaces.

Switchable glass can be left opaque to break up and segment areas, or transparent to allow light to pass through and create a more open feel to your space. These products also have dimming features which allow users to choose settings between clear and opaque.

MVision Switchable Glass can be configured to open and close like blinds to support advanced architectural and interior designs, giving designers and homeowners the ability to add extra features to their space.

Switchable glass also allows users to project displays like advertising or art in store windows, or even for presentations in the office to fully utilize windows and glass partitions.
