Smart Film

Introducing Switchable Smart Film

  • Switchable smart film from Gadget Guru allows you to transform existing glass windows, partitions, acrylic screens, or other transparent surfaces for instant switchable privacy and security.
  • Our switchable film is manufactured with a self-adhesive static cling layer, ready to apply to a window (a clean and carefully prepared one). 
  • Switchable smart film is operated by a simple electrical switch to control the opacity of the switchable film, turning it from clear to translucent. It can easily be integrated into home automation systems too, giving you even more control.
  • When opaque (in its unpowered, frosted state) switchable film also acts as a high quality projection screen. Rear projection gives you the highest quality image, whilst front projection effects can be enhanced with an additional reflective coating.
  • Switchable film also provides thermal, solar and sound insulation benefits, helping to keep rooms cool, comfortable and quiet.
  • Switch on to Intelligent Glass – the clear choice
  • Exporting across Southern Africa, we serve the needs of hundreds of architects, interior designers, retailers, office fit-out companies, glass processors, partitioning firms and more.

 Smart Film Operating Characteristics

When the power is switched off the liquid crystal molecules are randomly oriented scattering light and the our switchable Smart Film becomes opaque (frosted, private).

When the small electrical supply is switched on, the liquid crystal molecules align and incident light passes through and the our switchable Smart Film instantly clears (transparent).

The service of assembly by our team is included in the product price. You can also install it yourself without using any complicated equipment as the installation is easy and user friendly. Smart film comes with a remote switch to use turn it on or off and even with a dimmer to control the opacity. You can use it on just about any glass surface - the home, the office or the shop front. Or anywhere else you can think of. Smart film is not just for privacy or sunblock, but it also absorbs UV rays and reflects infrared to keep your room temperature lower and in turn saves you energy.
