How to Specify Polyvision

Specifying Polyvision switchable privacy glass involves providing detailed information about the project requirements and desired features. Polyvision is a brand that offers switchable glass technology, also known as smart glass or privacy glass, which can change from opaque to transparent and back with the flick of a switch or through an automated control system. Here are the key steps to specify Polyvision switchable privacy glass: 

  1. Determine the Application: Identify the specific application where you want to use switchable privacy glass. It could be in offices, conference rooms, healthcare facilities, residential settings, hospitality, retail, or any other space where privacy and natural light control are essential. 
  1. Glass Dimensions: Specify the required dimensions of the glass panels or windows. Ensure that you provide accurate measurements to ensure a perfect fit during installation. 
  1. Glass Type: Select the appropriate glass type for your application. Polyvision switchable privacy glass is available in various types, including laminated, tempered, or IGU options. Each type has its own advantages, so choose one that meets your project’s needs in terms of safety, insulation, or sound control. 
  1. Privacy Control: Determine how you want to control the privacy feature. Polyvision switchable glass can be operated using a switch, remote control, smartphone app, motion sensors, or integrated with a building automation system. Specify the control method that suits the end-users’ preferences and automation requirements. 
  1. Electrical Requirements: Ensure that the electrical requirements for the switchable glass installation are considered. Check for power supply availability and make sure the electrical components are safely integrated into the building’s power system. 
  1. Integration with Automation Systems: If the project involves automation or building management systems, specify the compatibility requirements for integrating the switchable glass with those systems. This will ensure seamless control and synchronization with other building elements. 
  1. Customization Options: Inquire about any customization options available. Polytronix, Inc offers the ability to add logos, patterns, or designs to the glass, providing a unique touch to the installation. 
  1. Sound Control: If sound insulation is important for your project, check the Sound Transmission Class (STC) rating of the glass and specify the required STC value if needed. 
  1. UV Protection: Discuss UV protection requirements if the glass will be exposed to direct sunlight for extended periods. Switchable glass can also offer UV filtering properties to protect interiors and occupants. 
  1. Safety and Compliance: Ensure that the switchable privacy glass meets safety standards and building codes relevant to your project location. Request documentation and certifications to verify compliance. 
  1. Warranty and Support: Polytronix, Inc provides a 3-year limited warranty for our Polyvision Smart Glass Line, and after-sales support is provided via phone or email.
