Window film technology is highly advanced these days, using microprisms, chromatic manipulation, and smart films that can be controlled with a switch, an app, or even an Alexa / Siri voice command.
As you can see, smart film brings a definite “cool factor” to your modern space – and it’s a great cost saver when compared to smart glass windows because the film is a retrofit that covers your existing glazing and is easy to replace.
If you’re wondering how you can apply smart film technologies to enhance and beautify your retail, medical, education, government, hotel, or commercial space, this article will help.
Spark your creativity with this list of 5 great benefits and uses for smart film.
A luxurious, comfortable atmosphere
Modern stadiums and performance venues must provide comfortable seating and an atmosphere of luxury to keep ticket holders satisfied.
Smart films help you provide the ultimate in comfort and luxury by giving your guests the feeling of privacy in every seat or section – check out how the window film experts at NGS helped the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta leverage smart film to do exactly that!
Secured sensitive business data
In today’s regulatory environment, it’s important to keep sensitive business data private from prying eyes. A variety of privacy films, including one way privacy window film and smart window film, can help you achieve that goal.
Check out how NGS protected sensitive data in an operations center with full-glass smart film privacy protection:
And then check out how NGS used a different kind of privacy film, known as Casper Cloaking Film, to block only sensitive data on an LCD TV presentation, while leaving the conference room visible:
Open office privacy
Open offices are a great use of space and they effectively foster collaboration, but sometimes privacy is required to incubate great, new ideas.
Unfortunately, some decorative privacy window film can “close off” open office space – whereas the switchable technology of smart window film makes it possible for you to maintain both open space and closed space, depending on your changing needs.
Provide your staff with both an open office setup as well as flexible privacy, with smart window film, just like this innovative company did:
Glare-free lighting in skylights, atriums, and glass-filled accents
Studies show that natural lighting increases workplace productivity – but sometimes too much light can hamper, rather than help, productivity.
Since the sun moves throughout the year, your natural lighting might be perfect in some seasons, but in other seasons you have two choices: either fight with impractical blinds that are so large they’re prone to breakage… or use smart film that blocks out glare at the tap of a button.
Here’s one example of a smart film application with a frosted privacy window film trim that blocked sunlight and glare in a luxury condo:
Eye-catching projection displays
Smart films aren’t only for privacy. Since they become a frosted white opaque window film when activated, they’re also great for displaying eye-catching videos on any glass surface in your space.
