The Magic of Future Glass

The Magic of Future Glass 

Aluminium windows are quite popular these days. Years ago, even these were considered inferior and out of fashion. Window technology has advanced a lot, not only in its visual appeal. In fact, windows can do much more than ever before; they can be scaled to cover an entire house and integrate with its architecture. Any wall can be made of glass, creating unique and wonderful views. Perhaps the most stunning thing about the window of the future is it can go from clear to opaque instantly.

Slimline Doors offers many glass door and window options. There’s a new technology, however, that uses a simple electric current to change the look of the window. A liquid crystal and polymer film inside the window changes with the current, going from opaque to clear. This happens as the current causes particles to go in one direction, making the glass look normal. The particles scatter after the switch is turned off; the resulting scattering blocks the light and the window then appears dark. Applications can range from walls to room dividers to sliding glass doors.

Expensive to install, the product uses a small amount of electricity. It is a high-tech option for any home improvement project. It might not be offered by every retailer, but frosted glazing and double-glazed glass doors and windows are a viable choice. Even this can be customized to different design requirements. Slimline Doors has worked with customers for years to provide the fabrication services to match their home improvement needs.
