My husband and I are just starting a remodeling project in our master suite (bathroom, walk in closet, home office). In our new bathroom we will have a single door that opens onto a deck where our hot tub sits. We would like to find a door that you can see out of but can not see in. Is there such a product out there? I have seen this on T.V. on yachts where they can push a button when they get into harbour so that those on the dock can not see inside.

here is a better option than the glass that changes from clear to opaque due to a electrical current. What happens if you were taking a shower and the power goes out for some reason of course without electricity the glass changes back to clear and no protection from prying eyes. use a obscure glass in the door or go with acrylic block insert from Hy-Lite (www.hy-lite.com). Thats a much cheaper option that the much too expensive glass you are talking about.

THANKS,

Please review your facts.......The "default" status of liquid crystal suspended particle device (SPD) glass is translucent......CLEAR requires voltage...
