Privacy – Polyvision panels can provide privacy at a moment’s notice in both exterior and interior installations. Offices, conference rooms, private rooms in restaurants, hospitals, clinics and medical offices, and banks are only a few of the locations where Polyvision glass can transform the functionality and appearance of the space. Polyvision also offers privacy for private homes, especially where street views or neighboring homes are close at hand, and it eliminates the need for dust-collecting draperies, shutters, and blinds.
Day-lighting – To daylight an interior effectively, harsh sunlight must be moderated to reduce glare and spread more even illumination at comfortable levels. Polyvision windows, skylights and glazed doors can be switched to translucent mode at peak hours of sunlight to cut light levels roughly in half and scatter the light, providing a diffuse source that illuminates more of the room with less glare.
Safety & security – Polyvision glass is similar in construction to safety glass. The film laminated into the glass package prevents shattered glass from flying and scattering after a severe impact, keeping the window intact. Polyvision panels meet safety glass standards and can be used in security and hurricane-resistant window applications.
Temperature control – Polyvision windows can reduce transmission of infrared radiation on demand. Switching a Polyvision window to its translucent state during peak sunlight can help control interior temperature and reduce the load on air conditioning systems, lowering energy costs.
Multifunctional – Polyvision glass can substitute for a white-board, maximizing the utility of a conference room, classroom, or consultation room. It also performs excellently as a rear-projection screen for videos, slideshows, or almost any projected image.
Fit for any project
Polyvision glass can be fabricated in almost any shape, in sizes up to 72” x 120” (1828 mm x 3048 mm). Even curved glass is available. All orders are custom manufactured, and can fit standard frames from virtually any window or door manufacturer, or be custom framed by a qualified glazing contractor. It can be installed as a new or replacement window.
Available glass colors include clear, bronze, gray, and green.
For even greater design flexibility, our new PolyPattern panels can be segmented, switching discreet sections separately, dividing a single glass pane into several options for partial or complete privacy.
