Privacy glass technology transforms meeting room in new Northamptonshire premises

With the help of Smartglass International, electrical and electronic manufacturing company Eltrium has transformed a simple meeting room into a creative and multipurpose function room.

With clients in a variety of fields, such as motorsports, aerospace, automotive, marine, and defence, Eltrium are dedicated to excellence and innovation in the field of electric and electronic manufacturing, and wanted to project this visually in their new premises. As a place where people and ideas come together, the meeting room provided the perfect space to represent these ideals to clients and partners alike.

Smartglass privacy glass project in meeting room

Located at the heart of British Formula 1 country in Northamptonshire, Eltrium’s new premises required a modern and sleek aesthetic, while also being understated and unpretentious to not take away from the work being accomplished there. The room itself is stylish and well-designed, and while it looks at first glance like your typical meeting area, there is more to this space than meets the eye.

What adds the wow factor to this room is that the large window is made entirely of privacy glass. Privacy glass uses electrical currents to turn the glass from clear to opaque at the flick of a switch or press of a button. Instantly, a public meeting room can be transformed into a private board room for confidential meetings or a quiet space for strategic planning or brainstorming with no distractions.

Privacy glass is suitable for use in any professional spaces that require privacy at a flick of a switch while continuing to utilise natural light. For optimum flexibility when working to fulfil clients’ design aspirations, Smartglass International offers a hands-on service and professional advice to overcome any architectural challenges along the way. Smartglass International partners closely with clients and approved third-parties to ensure that each installation is tailored to the specific design and requirements of the end user.
