Privacy Smart Glass Technology Helps Elevates Hospital Renovations

Smartglass International is delighted to have been a part of a recent hospital renovation in Nottinghamshire, helping to create an innovative, functional and hygienic glass partition for a newly-refurbished CT Scanner Room.

Smartglass International worked closely with a top-tier building contractor on this project, a valued partner that undertakes all aspects of building, joinery, and refurbishment within all sectors of the building industry throughout the UK and Ireland. Knowing this partner’s reputation of delivering quality projects on time and within an agreed budget, we were eager to work together to make this hospital refurbishment a success.

For this project, we supplied panels for a secondary glazed privacy glass screen to be used in the scanner and control rooms, allowing for both transparency and privacy as needed. The privacy glass uses electrical currents to switch from opaque to transparent at the flick of a switch or press of a button, so staff can easily control the environment in any situation.

Switchable privacy glass removes the need for bulky blinds, curtains or partitions, offering a distinctly more hygienic and convenient option for medical environments. The glass panels can turn from transparent to opaque or opaque to transparent in less than 0.1 seconds, meaning near-instant visibility for staff members in the case of an emergency. Numerous variations of this switchable glass are available – including colour tinted, fire rated, double glazed, curved, and shaped panels – to help create the ideal product for any space.

Switchable privacy glass is simple to use, hygienic, and easy to clean, making it the safest and most effective option in medical environments. Its unparalleled versatility also makes it suitable for use in any other commercial or residential space that require privacy at the flick of a switch without sacrificing natural light or on-demand visibility.

When working to fulfil clients’ design aspirations, Smartglass International offers a hands-on service and professional advice to help clients 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.
