“Privacy – like eating and breathing – is one of life’s basic requirements.”

The drawing of curtains, shutting of doors, and closing of windows are some common acts we perform to protect our privacy. But what if there was a better solution for it?

After all, privacy is everyone’s natural right.

Why Choose Glass For Privacy Matters?

Although an unapparent choice, glass is the perfect element to address your privacy concerns with. As a flexible architectural element, it has been vastly used by interior designers and architects alike for various internal and external applications.

Thanks to advanced glass technologies, glass can now be used to provide high-quality privacy, security, and aesthetic solutions.

And based on the level of privacy needed, different types of privacy glass solutions are available in the market such as tinted, frosted, and smart glass solutions.

Here is a list of four myths about privacy glass that you shouldn’t believe in.

Privacy Glass does not Block Heat

Not only does it offer protection against solar glare, but it also absorbs the harmful UV rays of the sun.  Contrary to the myth, privacy glass can absorb solar radiation and prevent solar glare.

This ability assists privacy glass to lower the amount of heat ingress. For instance – AIS Tint Float Glass can absorb around 30-40 % of the solar heat incident on its surface, helping you save on energy costs.

As a result, the indoors remain pleasant and comfortable. In summers, it keeps the heat out and in winters, it traps the heat inside for a cosier ambience. It is useful for both residential and commercial applications.

Best of all, it can decrease your energy consumption as reliance on cooling/heating appliances is reduced as well. You can enjoy ample natural light without worrying about the interiors heating up.

Privacy Glass Offers No Flexibility of Design

Nowadays, in glass manufacturing, form and function are given equal importance. And the same goes for privacy glass solutions. In truth, they’re flexible in design, style, and built as well.

If you search the market, you’ll find diverse shades and styles of privacy glass solutions. They’re available in different tints and thicknesses as well. For instance, tinted glass comes in a variety of colours that can be incorporated in various windows’ and doors’ designs.

There’s frosted glass that finds numerous interior design applications in false ceiling, doors, partitions, screens, shower screens, designer panels, etc. And to achieve a glossy and sleek finish, no other solution can beat smart glass. 

Privacy glass obscures vision while allowing natural light to flood in – a perfect privacy and aesthetic solution for modern homes and offices.

Privacy Glass only Offers Visual Privacy

In talks of privacy, precedence is given to visual privacy over audio privacy. However, having quality acoustics is necessary for achieving 100% privacy, especially in the commercial spaces.

Nowadays, privacy glass solutions are manufactured using premium techniques to make them soundproof as well. They can reduce the noise to promote a quieter ambience, providing a complete visual and audio privacy solution.

Privacy Glass isn’t Transparent

For premium privacy solutions and aesthetics, privacy glass comes in transparent, translucent, and opaque variants. While tinted and frosted glasses are translucent, smart glass can switch from being transparent to being opaque, and even translucent with a simple switch.

In smart glass, opacity levels can be adjusted using the same switch to get the desired privacy level. It offers varying levels of visual privacy to its users. Yet, at the same time, it allows light infiltration and blocks excessive heat.

Presently, glazed units with in-built blinds such as AIS Integrated Blinds are also available in the market. One can draw the blinds installed in the unit, whenever a privacy need arises.

The Bottom Line

Recently, cases of privacy violation have increased at an alarming rate. And as you know, privacy and security are two sides of the same coin. Therefore, as a precaution against peeping toms, nosy strangers, and burglars, optimising privacy solutions in residential and commercial spaces has become necessary.

For an effective privacy solution, incorporating privacy glass elements in internal and external applications is recommended. Besides, you get advantages like ample natural light, low maintenance, better acoustics, and efficient heat control.
