In this brave, new world, multi-functionality is key; with people looking for clever ways to make the most of space and create cool looks for residential and commercial properties.
Smart glazing can play an important part in this process, transforming surfaces and providing hard-wearing solutions that are aesthetically pleasing and perform well.
As the world’s leading glazing innovator, Pilkington United Kingdom Limited is able to offer a range of unique and pioneering products that offer all this and more.
is a multi-functional mirrored glass that can be used to conceal screens and digital displays when they aren’t being used.
Easy to move and handle, the glass can be toughened, making it extremely durable. Its pyrolytic coating means it won’t degrade over time and it is corrosion-resistant so ideal as a long-term investment.

“As glazing technology develops, mirrored glass is becoming much more popular and new products are being launched that provide the hard-working, multi-functional surfaces homeowners are looking for.”
