Now You See Through the Window; Now You Don't!?

Press release date: Dec 20, 2017

New from cleanroom-leader Terra Universal are their BioSafeĀ® Switch-Glass Privacy Windows. The outer layers of these unique windows are made of tempered glass. Inner layers contain laminated glass and liquid crystal that may be activated for 97% clarity, or de-activated for an opaque "curtain" offering full privacy. Switching time is approximately 100 milliseconds at room temperature.

When an electrical current is applied, controlled by a wall switch or wireless remote-control, the window panel becomes transparent; when de-energized, the window has an attractive "frosted" appearance. Useful applications include work on sensitive projects, corporate meetings or patient visits. Without blinds or cloth curtains getting in the way, these windows are easy and convenient to clean. For ISO-rated facilities, the safe tempered glass maintains cleanliness, standing up to sterilizing chemicals such as isopropyl alcohol.

Windows are available with or without frames, and in standard or custom sizes. Power requirements are less than one watt per square foot, and window life is more than 10 years (or over 3.5 million switches).

Terra Universal has 40 years of experience manufacturing critical-environment equipment and accessorires for cleanrooms and laboratories. For more information about BioSafe Switch-Glass Privacy Windows, visit Terra Universal's web site.
