Features and Benefits

BioSafe Switch-Glass Privacy Windows

BioSafe® Switch-Glass Privacy Windows

BioSafe Switch-Glass Privacy Windows
  • Versatile laminated panels with tempered-glass outer layers become conventional viewing windows when energized, opaque privacy panels when de-energized
  • Forms a curtain wall to provide patient privacy in healthcare facilities
  • Ideal for on-demand viewing of sensitive or high-security operations inside medical, pharmaceutical, aerospace and other manufacturing operations
  • Available in BioSafe® framed and frameless designs for use in Terra modular cleanrooms or conventional walls of any thickness (more information)
  • Select standard sizes below or specify custom panes in any size or shape

BioSafe Switch-Glass Privacy Windows provide an elegant, energy-saving way to alternate between viewing windows and privacy panels in a host of industrial, research and government applications.

Operated via a wired switch or WiFi remote control, these laminated panels include a liquid crystal layer that provides 97% light transmission when activated by 65V current. When de-energized, the panel switches to a partially opaque appearance that provides full privacy. The dual-side tempered-glass lamination ensures the same characteristics, including smooth, chemical-resistant surfaces, of standard windows, making these panels easy to clean.

  • An on-demand window for high-security commercial operations: ideal for training or customer viewing of operations that would normally remain private
  • Patient privacy in healthcare facilities: Convenient, easy-to-activate alternative to cumbersome curtains
  • Boardrooms, conference rooms, executive offices: adds convenient display/privacy viewing modes
  • Rear-projection display panel for broadcast, entertainment or commercial presentations
  • Forms an interactive video wall with addition of touch sensors
  • Call Terra to discuss your application!
