SmartGlass to strengthen Middle East presence

SmartGlass is intensifying its expansion drive in the Middle East thanks to a new surge in property development and demand for premium-quality electronically switchable glass solutions.

SmartGlass International has announced that it is intensifying its expansion drive in the Middle East to take advantage of a new surge in property development and demand for premium-quality electronically switchable glass solutions.
The manufacturer of electronically switchable privacy glass also said that the Middle East market’s drive for premium products and first class services (both at design stage and on site) is one of the main reasons for the expansion plans. Numerous high-profile projects in the Middle East, such as Dubai’s recently announced ‘Mohammed Bin Rashid City’ with over 100 hotels, largest shopping mall in the world, and state-of-the-art facilities, are also driving the demand for its switchable glass solutions.
SmartGlass International is the only company with a certified Ingress Protection rating of X7 allowing for SmartGlass to be used in the bathrooms of some of the world’s leading hotel brands.
“SmartGlass is changing the way designers in the Middle East create space and allow natural light through the built environment, thus enhancing the human experience. SmartGlass combines the functionality of an opaque wall with the style of clear glass allowing for an innovative and intriguing use of space, light, and glass. We are therefore stepping up our expansion drive in the Middle East to take advantage of the drive for premium high end products and desire for first class services, both of which SmartGlass International can offer. We are also excited to be working on some of the most imaginative and exciting projects that are being built in the Middle East. SmartGlass solutions complement the level of sophistication, prestige and magnitude of the development projects being undertaken in the region,” said John O’Gorman, Sales Manager MENA Region for SmartGlass International.
Widely used by leading architecture firms, interior designers, property developers, luxury hoteliers, and blue-chip companies around the world, SmartGlass illuminates environments, creating multi-functional spaces that adapt and respond to the needs of the users at the flick of a switch. Optimized for virtually no maintenance and hygienic usage, SmartGlass is being exported to over 50 countries worldwide, serving as an innovative solution to privacy-related design problems. SmartGlass International also provides a dedicated site engineer to supervise the installation and to conduct specialized training for in-house technicians and operators.
SmartGlass has been used in some of the most prestigious projects worldwide, including the Microsoft Headquarters in Lisbon, Portugal; the Kempinski Grand & Ixir Hotel in Manama, Bahrain; and the Rothschild Private Bank Headquarters and the Eccleston Square Hotel in London. The Microsoft project highlighted the competitive edge of SmartGlass International when the company produced and delivered approximately 400 square meters of SmartGlass in just two and a half weeks.
