Vision Control for Hospitals

Ideal for hospitals

Vision Control® is a patented, hermetically sealed glass unit combining louvers within glass that can be customized to virtually any shape for interior or exterior healthcare glazing applications. Its advanced louvered glazing technology eliminates strings, ensures alignment, requires no maintenance and provides the ideal privacy solution for ICUs, operating rooms, nurseries and more.

Vision Control® is HIPAA-compliant and, when installed in exterior applications, significantly reduces energy consumption in support of LEED® requirements. Vision Control® is a winner of The Architects’ Choice Award from the National Symposium on Healthcare Design and a Product Innovation Award from Architectural Products Magazine.

  • Optimal hygiene  – Reduced risk of infection and allergies; dust-free and does not accumulate dirt.
  • No maintenance  – Reduced cleaning and replacement costs.
  • Tranquility  – Sound wave barriers and 2” or 2 ½” airspace thickness between glass panes help reduce noise and speed up patient recovery times.
  • Safety  – Attack-resistant glazing and adaptable anti-ligature operators offer protection to patients and staff in psychiatric hospitals.

  • Daylighting design  – Enables the positive impacts of natural lighting on patients, while blocking unwanted glare, heat and harmful UV rays, and reducing the need for artificial lighting.
  • LEED® certification  – Solar heat barriers ensure optimal thermal performance to reduce HVAC costs and energy consumption.
  • Superior quality  – All components are built to last with generous warranties to ensure long-term ROI for hospital budgets.
