SMART FILM INSTALLATIONS ON THE RISE AS COMPANIES MOVE TO IMPROVE OFFICE PRIVACY
As the design of the modern work space has changed, with the open office and conference room concept firmly in place, the desire to have the option of increased privacy has increased as well.
The development of smart films in recent years by film manufacturers has provided an effective and attractive way for companies to determine when they want an open office concept and when they want privacy.
Smart film, also known as switchable film, is installed on interior glass and has an electrical component that is wired to a light switch. When the switch is on, the film remains clear allowing passersby to see inside. When the switch is off the film becomes opaque, blocking views of the interior and turning the glass into a privacy wall.
Another useful smart film feature: These films are projectable, meaning they can be used as a display screen for viewing power point presentations, videos and other images.
The proven effectiveness of smart film has quickly turned the formerly niche film into a mainstream product that is quickly building market share. The film’s frosted appearance is attractive. And its ability to turn an otherwise visible office or conference room into a private setting with the flip of a switch is a tremendous plus.
Remember: These films should be installed by an experienced smart film installer.
