What is PRIVA-LITE glass?

Comprised of two 5mm panes of glass--clear or tinted, depending on your application--and a liquid crystal interlayer film, PRIVA-LITE glass is designed to transform ordinary-looking glass into a translucent, frosted glass that effectively blocks out prying eyes and other distractions nearby.

Providing occupants with complete privacy at the flick of a switch, PRIVALATE can be turned on and off at the user’s will. When the glass is switched off from its special power supply, the liquid crystals are randomly scattered, obstructing the view of occupants on both sides of the glass. However, when switched on, these crystals then line up and reorient themselves, turning the PRIVA-LITE glass totally transparent for complete clarity--perfect for facilities hoping to achieve the all-glass aesthetic.

Adds Aesthetic Appeal

Looking to segregate parts of your facility, but don’t want it to look and feel too enclosed or outdated? Then PRIVA-LITE active glass is the ideal solution for your application. Effortlessly creating multi-functional spaces within your facility, PRIVA-LITE adapts and responds to the needs of your occupants at the flick of a switch. Often used as partition screens, windows and more, PRIVA-LITE glass is an easy way to add a unique and modern visual appeal to your facility.

Enhances Privacy
