AntiBacterial Glass- Smartglass

I N N O V AT I O N  S E R V I N G  H Y G I E N E

Smartglass AntiBacterial glass™  is a major innovation in the world of glass design. The antimicrobial action of the silver ions inside the glass eliminates 99.9% of all bacteria that form on its surface whilst also preventing the spread of fungi. This remarkable property makes it perfect for places where strict hygiene is a must.

Smartglass AB™ can be used in a wide range of interior design applications.

The process developed and patented by Smartglass AB™ involves diffusing silver ions into the upper layers of the glass: the ions interact with bacteria and destroy them by disabling their metabolism and disrupting their division mechanism. The antibacterial effect of the glass is ongoing, particularly in warm and moist conditions favoring the development of bacteria and mould.


The results showed a drastic reduction in the initial bacterial concentrations as well as a cessation of fungal growth.

Though present in low concentrations, the silver ions give the glass its bactericidal and fungicidal effects.

To evaluate the performance of Smartglass AB™, tests have been conducted on a representative range of bacteria and fungi:
1. Bacteria
• Staphylococcus Aureus
• Escherichia Coli
• Pseudomonas Aeruginosa
2. Fungi
• Aspergillus Niger
• Candida Albicans


Smartglass AB™ offers a range of looks depending on the product. Clear Smartglass AB™ could be easily combined with Smartglass switchable glass solution.


Smartglass AB™ is easy to clean and is resistant to cleaning products, including those used in hospitals. Tests have shown that even abrasive maintenance products do not impede the glass’s antimicrobial effect.


Fitting Smartglass AB™ is easy. Installation techniques differ depending on the prod- uct chosen. Please refer to the installation guides for products.

How does switchable glass works?

Controlling the glass is achieved by simply flipping an electrical switch. When the glass is switched on a film found between the two layers of glass reacts to the electric current, creating a reaction that allows light to pass through the glass. When the switch is turned off, the reaction has a reversed effect and the light ceases to pass through.
