Partition Door Ideas – Wallis Shipping Colchester Case Study

Wallis Shipping Services facilitate the movement and supply of international freight between clients within the UK and international buyers and sellers. Its head office is located in Colchester and it services the East of England region including Essex and Suffolk.

Wallis required a partition in its new Colchester office in order to create a new conference room. So, the main objective of the project was to ensure that light flowed through both the office and meeting rooms. Therefore, to meet the group’s requirements, GDL Interiors recommended glass partitioning and partition door.
Partition Door Ideas


  • Location: Colchester, Essex
  • Project Type: Glass Partitioning/Office Partitioning
  • Project Duration: Five days

Scope of Works

An initial meeting held with the client to discuss glass partitioning and partition door ideas, and concepts that fit in line with the client’s requirements and budget. GDL Interiors constructed the chosen meeting room design within the office using 10mm toughened double glazed partitioning.

We fitted a full-height 10mm toughened non-locking glass door within the glazed elevation of the partition.  The door fitted within an aluminum powder coated door frame in order to enhance sound attenuation.

In addition, we used plasterboard to enclose the apertures within the high-level supporting timber beams above the glass panels. The plasterboards received two coats of emulsion paint to match the existing decoration. Finally, the insertion of two glass panels within the remaining apertures of the supporting timbers, to create a visual feature.


Therefore, to maintain as much sound attenuation as possible it was necessary to infill the structural supporting timbers at a high level with plasterboard and glass to match the aesthetics of the new glass partition

End Result

GDL Interiors successfully provided Wallis Shipping Colchester with a  modern and sleek glass partitioned conference room, creating a clear space for meetings while allowing natural light to flow into the room.

To minimize noise pollution, we installed a functional and attractive glass door  within a slime line aluminum powder coated door frame, thus allowing easy access to the room as well as allowing natural light to flow into the room.

The project was completed on time and within budget to the client’s satisfaction.
