Glass Partitions to Divide Workspace
Over recent years glass partitions have become an integral element of modern office design. The history of glass goes back centuries, and yet it’s still one of the most versatile and useful materials. It’s particularly effective when used to create workspaces within business premises. So let’s take a look at a few of the reasons why.
Nowadays, many offices are located in buildings that were previously used for something else. For example, old industrial buildings and warehouses, which were not designed with office life in mind. Often these spaces need to be divided into workable areas. In the past, stud partition walls were built to create separate offices, meeting rooms, storerooms etc.
More recently the trend has been to create these divisions between rooms using a glass partition wall. Some take the form of a half stud wall with the upper section in glass. But floor to ceiling glass partitions are becoming increasingly common.
The benefits of using glass
Stud walls clearly have their place. But a room with a single window – or even no window at all – can appear dark and uninviting. Glass partitioning creates a private place for meetings without cutting the occupants off from the rest of the workplace. Glass gives a space a much more open feel, and makes the best possible use of natural light.
An office complex of dim, claustrophobic rooms nowadays looks outdated, and that can reflect negatively on your company. Light and airy spaces created with glass partitions give a forward thinking and contemporary look. And that’s the kind of statement you want to be making about your business.
Moreover, glass partitioning is often a more cost-effective option than building solid or stud walls. Installing it causes less disruption, meaning the office can get back up and running more quickly.
