Reveal Electronically Controlled Privacy Glass from Guardian Glass

From public to private, with the flip of a switch

Guardian Reveal switchable privacy glass brings new versatility to interior and architectural designs. Reveal switchable privacy glass helps transform windows, interior walls and partitions into dynamic design elements that control light and privacy.

Reveal switchable privacy glass pairs high-quality Guardian float glass with state-of the-art liquid crystal technology. With the flip of a switch or other devices, clear views become private.

Magic in the moment

Delight building occupants and owners with the fast, on-demand transitions of Reveal switchable privacy glass. At once hard-working and elegant, Reveal switchable privacy glass can be controlled with a switch, motion detector, daylight sensor or another device.

Real-world value

Design to boost employee wellbeing and energy levels when you choose Reveal switchable privacy glass. Energy efficient and a powerful tool for daylighting, Reveal switchable privacy glass can help open up offices and illuminate rooms with natural light. UL-Listed components are designed to work with standard interfaces and are eligible for LEED® certification points.

How it works

Reveal switchable privacy glass uses a low-voltage electrical current to arrange liquid crystal molecules into a pattern that makes glass transparent when turned on. Turned off, the LC molecules revert to a random pattern, diffusing the light and causing the glass to become opaque.
