Dynamic glass refers to glass & windows that change their light control state and appearance in response to an external stimulus. The stimulus can be voltage, heat or sunlight. Dynamic glass is usually produced with 2 or more layers of glass laminated with an active or switchable film interlayer between.
Dynamic glass can switch from clear to private, or can be variably tinted to darken a room or building. This makes the occupants more comfortable, connects them with the outdoors when desired, and saves energy by reducing the demand on HVAC systems and interior lighting.
Dynamic Glass falls into a few sub-categories
