Privacy Smartglass recently installed at Derriford Hospital

Smartglass are delighted to announce that it has recently installed its Privacy Smartglass product at Derriford Hospital in Plymouth, United Kingdom.          The Privacy Smartglass was utilised in the new Stem Cell Transplant Unit acting as a partitioning system in the corridors and rooms.

Privacy Smartglass instantly switches between opaque and transparent at the flick of a switch providing an efficient and easy-to-clean partitioning system that facilitates both privacy and the highest standards of health and safety.


The new Stem Cell Transplant Unit at Derriford Hospital will ensure the Trust is providing world class cancer care. The new specialist high dependency unit will include 10 single rooms with en suite facilities. Two of these rooms will have negative pressure to make them suitable as isolation facilities for patients with infection. A number of the rooms will also be designed for teenagers and young adults in mind.


Consultant Haematologist and Programme Lead for Stem Cell Transplantation, Dr Hannah Hunter, said: “We have had great support and involvement, from patients and from the Plymouth and District Leukaemia Fund whose Trustees have pledged to provide a financial contribution towards enhancements such as smart glass so patients can choose whether, in isolation, they want to watch the world go by through clear glass or prefer more privacy and can switch to opaque glass.”


Smartglass are delighted to add another NHS project to our portfolio and look forward to working on future projects with them.
