On taking an interest in the product Polymer Dispersed Liquid Crystal Laminated Glass (privacy glass) Roman quickly perceived a need in this emerging market for more efficient and effective solutions to local requirements. From this, Switchglass was founded.

What our clients say...

  • Roman is always ready to help, has a wealth of knowledge and most importantly, knows how to get the job done!

    Award Winning Project

  • Exceptional customer service was very helpful. I was very appreciative of your willingness to go above and beyond.

    Wideline Doors & Windows

  • Fantastic service from start to finish. As we’d not installed Switchglass before, we wanted to get a clear understanding of what was involved. Roman was able to provide all thetechnical information we needed along with drawings and details for the wire locations. This was a great help. Our project had an extremely tight time-line and I appreciated the regular feedback we received about our order’s progress. When it was dispatched we were notified via email with tracking details and were alerted on a regular basis about its time of arrival. The glass arrived very well packed and in good quality, robust crating.

    The installation of our Switchglass was very simple, our team installing it with no problems at all. Overall, we receivedimpressive service facilitated by good processes and systems and I would highly recommend Switchglass, the company, and the product, to others. Great job.
