Polyvision® Switchable Privacy Glass in Higher Education

There have been lots of policy changes in recent years to protect the privacy of students at institutions of higher learning. Since anyone can walk around a college campus without an escort, there are threats to the security of student information, university business, and overall security and safety. One way to deal with potential threats is with Polyvision® Switchable Privacy Glass.

With most student information being kept in not only digital format, but written as well, college office spaces and classrooms need to be more secure. While teachers are teaching, and office staff are working, it is essential to maintain the privacy of student’s personal and academic information. That’s where Polyvision® Switchable Privacy Glass comes in.

When used as partitions, office staff can rest comfortably knowing that their neighbors cannot simply look over at their desk and potentially collect student data. In classrooms, teachers can activate the privacy glass during exams or conferences with students. During faculty meetings or other events, Polyvision® Switchable Privacy Glass gives everyone peace of mind that the conversations are remaining confidential.

In faculty offices, where most grading is done, Polyvision® Switchable Privacy Glass helps to provide the privacy teachers need in grading student work. On the occasion that a student stops by for a conference, the immediate privacy offered by the Polyvision® Switchable Privacy Glass gives the student assurances that their conversation with their professor will remain confidential.

In many higher education settings, Polyvision® Switchable Privacy Glass performs excellently as a rear-projection screen for videos, slideshows, or almost any projected image. It can also substitute for a white-board, maximizing the utility of a conference room, classroom, or office meeting room. Professors can use this for showing videos, reviewing slide shows, or even using interactive software in the learning process.

And have you ever noticed students staring out the window during a lecture? Faculty members can simply push a button or hit a switch on the computer to change the windows from clear to opaque in just 80 milliseconds! Keeping students focused on the lecture and their education is just one more benefit of using Polyvision® Switchable Privacy Glass in college classrooms!

But these aren’t the only concerns on today’s college campuses. Active shooters have become a significant threat to all schools in this country. To offer protection in the case of an active shooter, Polyvision® is constructed like laminated safety glass. The film laminated between the glass 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. While it cannot stop bullets, Polyvision® Switchable Privacy Glass can reduce the amount of damage.
