WHAT EXACTLY IS I-GLASS™ & I-FILM™?
Our Electric I-GLASS™ is simply a glass that has a special film in it (numerous types available from Single Glazed to Double Glazed, Fire Rated, Triple Glazed, Laminated , Tinted, Shaped etc ) that changes from clear to private ( opaque you cannot not see in or out at all ) when you press our wireless remote control or wireless wall switch. Which you can imagine has an array of features and practical uses and modern technology applications.In the 'private' mode the glass & film is excellent for HD back image & movie projections (WOW your guests with that feature!)
Our Electric I-FILM™ is the same as the smart glass but its simply an adhesive film that you stick onto your existing glass. The film then changes from clear to private the same as the glass. In fact its actually the same film in the glass!
