Smart Films International (“SFI”) is a developer and manufacturer of Dynamic Smart Glass Solutions for the Architectural and Automotive markets.
SFI provides the following dynamic glass solutions:
- Smart Film / Smart Glass
Smart Film, also known as Switchable Film or Privacy Film is an innovative solution for Privacy on Demand. The Smart Film switches between transparent and ‘milky’ white by applying electrical voltage. Privacy Glass is a Smart Film, laminated as a sandwich between two glasses. SFI’s Smart Film is based on its propriety NCAP PDLC technology. Traditional glass can easily be upgraded to Smart Glass through application of a Self-Adhesive Smart Film.
- Solar Glass
Solar Glass refers to either Electrochromic technology (active technology) or Thermochromic technology (passive).
Electrochromic glass control is a crucial element in office and industrial buildings with large glazed surfaces in the façade as well as in classical conservatories. Electrochromic control glass is an intelligent alternative for common shading solutions and provides plenty of daylight in conservatories and behind glass façades, as well as a permanently unobstructed view to the outside. The amount of light transmitted by the glass can be flexibly adapted to the user’s needs, according to the weather conditions.
Thermochromic Glass uses heat from direct sunlight to tint when necessary. As the sun moves across the sky, the Glass will cool and return to clear. At night or in cloudy conditions, when direct sun is not present, the Glass remains clear and allows as much daylight as possible.
- Display Glass
SFI’s Display Glass solution enables customers to turn their glass into a multimedia display and at the same time keep it’s glass transparency. Upgrading traditional glass, for example a storefront glass, with a Display Glass enables a customer to turn their storefront glass into a big multimedia display on demand, with a prestige feel and look. It is a fantastic platform for sales and marketing. SFI’s range of solutions fit external and internal glasses, digital posters etc. They represent the next generation of the old traditional digital signage.
In addition, SFI develops and manufactures ‘Normally Open’ Low-Voltage switchable LCD film based on proprietary Liquid Crystal, which serves a variety of applications such as helmets, Ski goggle and lenses. Its main product is EyeStrobe (™) to train the connection of Eye – Brain – Body.
