Our brief was to design and manufacture 4 x edgeless switchable privacy glass projection screens for the Pullman Mascot Project in Sydney.

Under the umbrella of Accor Hotels, the upscale branding of Pullman Hotels and Resorts has resulted in a rapid network growth of their portfolio. By 2020 their objective is to have 150 hotels operating in key business and tourist locations.

The push to provide innovative, trending technology for their business and vacationing guests has seen the integration of the latest digital technology throughout their hotels. Facilities include high-speed Wi-Fi and unified entertainment devices that are easily accessible and user-friendly.

Our brief was to design and manufacture 4 x edgeless switchable privacy glass projection screens for the Pullman Mascot Project in Sydney. Each measuring 2500mm x 4000mm, the customer’s final approval saw our switchable glass screens suspended from the hotel lobby’s ceiling for the display of projected infra-red images, visible from either side, for guests within the hotel complex.

Mock-up Samples

The customer was originally looking at using projection film applied to normal glass. They tested four different types for their client.

We were asked to provide a SwitchGlass sample as a comparison. On demonstration, both customer and client were extremely impressed by the clarity of the projected images on to our product. We ended up being the favoured choice over the retrofit projection films.

From there we worked through the engineering requirements to laminate SwitchGlass using a 3.04mm PVB Switchglass interlayer between two pieces of toughened SuperClear CNC 6mm glass. The glass also required holes to be drilled to mount the suspended glass panel.
