BEST PRACTICES FOR SWITCHABLE PRIVACY GLASS

 

Our Switchable Privacy Glass is made from the highest grade materials and represents the state-of-the-art. That said there are some best practices used by architects and designers in using this kind of material. First, the glass is designed to be used as a privacy screen that can be cleared on demand. It is not meant to be a regular window that is kept clear all the time. Buy this product only if you need its privacy functions. Second, the product is best situated where occupants can look through the glass perpendicular to the glass surface. The glass is clearest on-axis and highly off-axis applications are discouraged. Third, ambient lighting conditions are imrportant. Because the product is made from laminated glass the surfaces are somewhat reflective. Do not use the product in situations with backlighting or direct overhead lighting as the reflections might be bothersome. In short, this product is best of breed, but it should be usedonly where it is needed in locations designed for it.
