Switchable Privacy Glass is viewed by some as just another glass fashion. So what distinguishes it from other glass products?  Its innovative practicality.

There is no denying that the public is finding some creative uses for it – Art Installations, for example – but  its increasing demand is being driven by its simple,  sheer practicality.One notable area is that of Medical Institutions.Here Switchable Privacy Glass is being used in wards, operating theatres and clinics to replace dust-collecting curtains, drapes and blinds.

Until recently, no one had thought to make the change and I’m sure we all can remember the heavy-duty curtains being swept aside with a flourish, pulled back along their rail by a smiling nurse or matron as we lay recuperating. “And how are we today . . . ?”

It is the “now you see me now you don’t” privacy at the flick-of-a-switch which has caught the Medical Institutions’ eye – plus the ‘better hygiene factor’.

While it is unashamedly an ‘electric’ glass product, it is simple to install, simple to use and simple to maintain. It is these factors that mean its use in these types of institutions will only increase as time goes on.

Another area where Switchable Privacy Glass is finding increasing favour is in the board rooms of banking institutions and commercial enterprises. In these instances our product has been utilised for much the same reasons as above – and also because of its aesthetics; Switchglass™ blends in nicely with modern architectural design.

A classic case in point is Bendigo Bank’s Adelaide HQ, which recently won the architect Jarrod Sinclair the Building Designers Association of Victoria’s ‘People’s Choice’ Award.

Switchable Privacy Glass features in managerial offices as doors and fixed panels where they offer privacy or seclusion at the flick-of-a-switch – and without any need for curtains, drapes or blinds.

Sydney’s Macquarie Bank utilised our panels for the same reasons and other company board room designs have followed suit.

Contemporary, sheer, clean and stylish would perhaps best sum up the reasons for its increasing popularity. It is definitely not just a fad.
