Ongoing frameless glass project

We have nearly finished this frameless glass partitioning project in Shipley so here’s a sneak peak ahead of our case study.


The client initially asked our advice regarding the best partition system to suit their office environment.  They were keen on using lots of glass but didn’t know if it was possible as the workspace has high ceilings.  We suggested our single glazed frameless partitioning system as this ticks all the boxes and allows the natural light through from the large windows.

Measuring for the glass partitioning

We needed to create a plasterboard bulkhead that would go above the glass partitioning as the ceiling height exceeded 3 metres – the maximum height available for framesless glazing.  All the joints were taped and filled to a smooth finish and painted with 2 coats of white matt emulsion. As you can see the bulkhead works perfectly blending in nicely with the existing plaster board ceiling.

All the glass partitioning has now been installed.  The ceiling tiles will need replacing, the carpet needs laying and a final building clean will complete the office refurbishment.

These glass office walls include:

  • Single doors to a height of 2700mm with a glass panel above.
  • 600mm back-to-back D handles in satin stainless steel.
    • No locks were required in this instance as glazed office areas will only be used as meeting rooms
  • Full height single glazing with polished edges and a dry joint between the panes.
  • The small amount of framework is in silver colour
  • 2 rows of 50mm DDA dots in Opal frost film applied.

A  full case study will follow in the new year when the office refurbishment is completed.
