Gauzy Smart Glass for Offices

Gauzy Smart Glass delivers on demand opacity or transparency to create instant privacy. Suitable for almost any glazing application where privacy is required, such as office meeting rooms, Gauzy offers both full privacy, and unobstructed views of the outside space and natural light.

As Gauzy is a custom laminated glass product, the glass lites can be selected to suit your aesthetic, acoustic and thermal design requirements all while complying with human impact safety standards.

Controlled by a wall mounted touch panel, the space instantly transforms from a private meeting room to a naturally lit open workspace or a technologically-advanced and engaging piece of art with dynamic patterns — all within a matter of milliseconds.

Gauzy Polymer Dispersed Liquid Crystal (PDLC) films laminated into glass or full IGU systems offer on-demand privacy or transparency. Optimised for premium optical performance with haze as low as 2%, millisecond switching time and patented technology to extend the lifetime of smart glass.
