The INOVA® Switchable Glass, also called opacifying glass, is an EVA laminated glass manufactured by an assembling process that encapsulates a liquid crystal polyester film between 2 glass sheets.

The electric current makes the active controlled-occultation glass change from a transparent (ON) to opaque (OFF). When the power is turned off, it gets its opaque appearance for more privacy.

A simple switch or a remote control is enough to activate its change of state. The operation is reversible and can be repeated indefinitely.

Its advantages

This innovative glass is therefore ideal for managing spaces, whether in private or public areas.

It owns multiple advantages :

  • Almost instantaneous reversibility
  • Silent and unlimited change of state
  • Low power consumption
  • Protection against UV rays
  • Avoids installation of conventional occultation system
