For decades glass panes around the house were there for one reason: so, we could close the opening in the window. Today, glass panes benefit the home in more ways than one. In a nutshell, smart performance glass ensures that homes and office blocks are energy efficient. We’re unpacking what performance smart glass is, the types available, and a few benefits performance glass offers a dwelling over its outdated predecessor:

What is Smart Glass?

Smart glass is a general term given to residential or commercial glass fixtures that have been altered in some way using suspended particles, electrochromic, liquid crystals and glazing. These alterations to glass panes offer benefits in terms of internal climate control. This means that performance glass facilitates more comfortable living spaces within buildings of all shapes and sizes.

3 Reasons Performance Smart Glass is Better

The biggest difference between performance glass and normal glass panes is that with performance glass, you’re able to completely customise how sunlight will enter and impact the inside of a room. Some benefits of having performance glass include:

  • UV Filtering
    The smart glass glazing comes in a range of strengths, filtering out UV from the light which keeps homes cooler in the summer months. Filtered UV rays also means that your furniture is protected from sun damage.
  • Noise Reduction
    Aluminium windows fitted with our performance glass panes insulate a room like a wooden window frame and normal glass would never be able to. This means that less outside noise can penetrate your building.
  • Increased Safety
    Normal glass windows break, leaving a cavernous gap where criminals can gain access to your home. Performance glass included safety laminate for additional security. This makes a home much safer than regular window glass.
