Polyvision switchable glass provides privacy at the flick of a switch. This product uses state-of-the-art technology to turn what looks like an ordinary glass pane into an opaque privacy screen. Polytron, the manufacturer of this clever product, uses a special film made up of liquid crystal molecules that is custom laminated in between two glass panels. When the power is off, the liquid molecules are randomly orientated, which scatters light and provides an opaque effect. Once power is supplied, the liquid crystals line up and the panel becomes clear. Polyvision switchable glass is an innovative solution for an open ensuite bathroom or any type of space where a bit of privacy goes a long way.  Polyvision switchable glass by Polytron,
