Privacy Film

Patient and operator privacy can be an issue in some work spaces. With this in mind Raybloc offer customers the option to have their radiation window glass layered with a film of their choice. Films are available in any range from one way film, tinted, opaque, strip obscured to coloured.

Polarized Glass

Polarized glass is unique to Raybloc and is the latest innovation in glass vision technology. Polarized glass has only been installed in North Staffordshire Hospitals so far and has proven a great success with great feed back from radiographers, RPA and area managers. Polarized glass is ideal for use in back to back rooms that use the same control room.

The X-ray window glass only allows the same light to pass through the one pane but not the second. The result is a complete black out pane when viewed through both windows, yet complete vision when viewing through just the one. This allows the radiographer to view both rooms from the control room with no mechanics or electronic switches involved as it is the glass its self that stops the light. However, although the patient can still see the radiographer which provides them with comfort, the patient can not see the patient in the opposite room, all they see is a blacked out pane of glass. For extra detail on this please enquire.
