It transitions from transparent clarity to serene privacy in a single click. Turn on Reveal for clear, bright views. Turn it off, and a gental opacity conceals visibility to only simple shapes.
“Guardian Reveal brings privacy to interior walls and doors in any number of settings, including healthcare, retail, hospitality, office buildings and more,” explains Chris Dolan, Direct, Commercial and Interior Glass Marketing. “This is a great use of glass in environments that benefit from increased daylight but sometimes require privacy.”
Reveal was recently installed in nearly 200 guest rooms at The Langham Chicago, a luxury hotel housed in a renovated Mies van der Rohe-designed building. The hotel’s designers incorporated Guardian Reveal to add a level of beauty and privacy, providing a link from the elegantly appointed rooms to the contemporary design of the bathroom.
Reveal begins with Guardian high-quality float glass, laminated with a liquid crystal film and PVB (polyvinyl butryal) interlayer. An electric current renders glass transparent, offering unobstructed views and welcoming abundant light.
Because interior glass can connect indoor spaces and the outdoors via daylight and views, use of Reveal can contribute to a new construction or retrofit’s LEED certification.
Available in a broad range of colors, tints, patterns and textures, Reveal is part of Guardian InGlass, a portfolio of advanced interior glass solutions that allows designers to explore all the possibilities of glass.
USGlass magazine is the leading trade publication serving the architectural glass and glazing industry.
