Polyvision® Switchable Glass Demonstrated in the Museum and Conference Room of the Taiwan High Speed Rail Museum
During its 10th anniversary celebration this past January, the completion of the “Taiwan High-Speed Rail Exploration Hall” was unveiled, which showcased Polyvision® Switchable Privacy Glass. The Taiwan High Speed Rail Museum is located in Zhongli District, Taoyuan City, Taiwan, and opened to the public January 6, 2017.
The history of the High Speed Rail was projected onto our Polyvision® Switchable Privacy Glass, which can be activated by the touch panel sensor. Our Polyvision® Switchable Privacy Film and Switchable Privacy Glass is an opaque white smart film, laminated between glass, that can be changed, instantly, into a clear glass window. Polyvision Glass® panels provide easily-controllable, when-you-need-it privacy and security in both interior and exterior installations. Polyvision® is an innovative film and glass product that offers unique functionality for creative applications.
The liquid crystals in the Privacy Film are closer to a liquid state than a gas or solid state. It takes enormous amounts of heat to change a solid to a liquid, but it only takes a little heat to turn liquid crystal into a real liquid. This explains why liquid crystals are very sensitive to temperature and why they are used to make things like laptop screens and our own Switchable Privacy Film!
When we apply voltage to the liquid crystals in the film, they change position. When they make this adjustment, they change the angle of the light passing through them to become transparent. When the voltage is removed, no light can pass through that area of the LCD, which makes opaque.
When the Switchable Privacy Glass is opaque, it can act as a projector screen, allowing users to display any number of visual applications directly onto the glass enclosed area. LCD projectors work by letting polarized light in red, blue, and green, to travel through a pane of glass into the liquid crystal inside the display – in this case, onto the Switchable Privacy Glass smart film.
Polytronix, Inc.® Polyvision® Smart Glass and Film is a versatile, and aesthetically pleasing solution for privacy, partitioning, display advertising, projected images, and much more. Control Polyvision with an ON/OFF switch, dimmer, remote control, motion detector, home automation system, or smart device app. And Switchable Privacy Glass changes from clear to opaque in just 80 milliseconds!
Polyvision® 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 consultation room.
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 diffused source that illuminates more of the room with less glare.
Polyvision® Switchable Privacy Glass lasts up to 20 years and is available in annealed and tempered glass configurations. 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.
Thank you for your time and we look forward to working with you to have remarkable, innovative display, partition, façade, doors, and windows.
