DORMA Hüppe launches magic Glass

DORMA Hüppe, specialists in high quality moveable wall systems, introduces Magic Glass. This ingenious ‘transparent to opaque’ solution offers instant privacy at the press of a button while retaining all the benefits of an acoustic, glass dividing wall.

Magic Glass features liquid crystals suspended in a conductive layer. As soon as an electric current is passed through the two layers, the crystals re-arrange themselves in tight formation to create a clear glass wall. Turn the Magic Glass off and the wall turns into a milky, opaque partition, giving privacy when required.

DORMA Hüppe’s new Magic Glass extends the applications for moveable walls. Not only can an open plan space be sub-divided into smaller private rooms but this additional feature means you can choose the level of privacy too. Combined with 50dB Rw acoustic performance, staff at DBRS can conduct meetings in privacy, reassured that people walking by cannot see into the room.

Julian Sargent, Style’s group managing director, said "This is an extremely exciting development to DORMA’s glass range and we’re expecting huge demand from a diverse cross section of sectors including healthcare, education, hospitality and corporate".
