ESG Privacy Glass - Privacy on demand



Where discretion is vital, ESG Privacy Glass gives you the choice of privacy or the public gaze at the flick of a switch. Normally a diffused white which acts as a screen, this LCD glass can be made transparent simply by passing an electric current through it.

With the power off, liquid crystal molecules in the privacy film are randomly oriented so that incidental light is scattered, making the glass opaque; but when electricity is applied, the liquid crystal molecules line up and, as light passes through it, the Privacy film becomes clear.

ESG Privacy Glass products are available in custom sizes and shapes, making it an ideal choice for architects and designers when creating conference rooms, nurseries, and medical consulting rooms.

In its white state, LCD glass even becomes the perfect backdrop on which to project presentations, without the need for a separate screen.

It can also be used in residential areas, security windows and beauty salons � just about anywhere you might need a little privacy.

Switchable LCD glass can also be applied in vehicle privacy screens to protect the driver and passenger�s privacy and security, while offering good light transmission conditions inside the car.
