LC Privacy Glass: Conference Room

LC Privacy Glass was used to create this state-of-the-art conference room for a prominent Construction Management company in Woodbury, NY. The door and surrounding glass walls, when transparent, allow a full view of the beautiful reception area and mural, and then can become fully private when needed with the flip of a switch. Our patented PowerTrack allows the conference room door to slide open with no visible wires. The front wall can be used as a white board, or instantly transforms into a rear projection screen for impressive, eye-catching presentations. This project was installed by C&L Aluminum using the CRL 702 Series framing system. More
