The ultimate in flexible privacy solutions

ElectraView™ transforms partitions from diffuse privacy to transparency at the flip of a switch. Our switchable privacy glass can be combined with decorative film options for interior design, with our x-ray shielding glass for medical installations—or even both for a comprehensive healthcare solution.

• ElectraView™’s technology takes a window panel from obscurity to clarity and back again using electrical currents and an embedded layer of liquid crystal particles.

• ElectraView™ is switched “on”, creating transparent glass that allows natural light to pass.

• ElectraView™ is switched “off”, creating a visually obscure glass that allows in diffuse light without sacrificing privacy.

ElectraView™ Visibility Angles

Architectural Specifications

ElectraView™ PDLC molecular alignment is perpendicular to glass surfaces which means views become obscured on angles. Sharper viewing angles to the left or right, or up or down will result in greater haze perception. Glass will appear clearest when viewed straight on.
