Glass Office Partitions

Glazed partitioning helps maintain a wonderful, open feel to your office space. It can form dividing walls between offices, that gives a degree of privacy yet still maintains that visibility factor.

It’s a quick & simple way to segment your office space and requires no changes to existing suspended ceilings.

Glazed office walls help reduce the noise between rooms and can provide private areas, meeting and board rooms.

You may of heard it called ‘glass room dividers’ or ‘glazed office screens’. The full height frameless glass partitioning is often referred to as a ‘glass office wall’.

All the glazing we supply can have window films or manifestations applied. This is an excellent (and cost effective) way to give added interest to an office design or reinforce company branding.

Benefits of Natural light

natural sunlight flooding into the office

Glass partitioning can be beneficial to your workplace as it allows natural sunlight from the external windows to flood into your offices. The advantages of this are:

  • The sun shining in will help raise your staffs’ serotonin levels which in turn aids their activity levels and productivity.
  • Natural sunlight increases the production of Vitamin D which increases the immune system. This helps keep them at their desks and not in their sickbeds at home. It’s a fact that people working under natural light spend less time off work – so open the external window blinds and let the sunlight in!
  • Sunlight is great for getting everyone in a good mood especially during the cold winter months.
  • The more natural light that you have within your office the less electric lighting you need. You’ll be able to turn off the lights, or just have less switched on, which means savings on your electricity bill.

Lower electricity bills, lower absence rates, healthier more productive staff and on top of all that the sunshine brings that feel-good factor to the workplace!

Safety Glass

All glass used in todays glazed partitioning is safety glass, usually toughened or laminate:

Toughened safety glass
Toughened Glass

This is produced by controlled thermal or chemical treatments during production that increases the strength of the glass. When broken the glass will crumble into safe, thumb-size, granular chunks instead of leaving dangerous, sharp, jagged shards. Thickness’s for toughened glass are typically 6, 10 and 12mm.

laminated safety glass
Laminate Glass

A type of safety glass made with two or more layers of glass sandwiched with a laminate substructure of Polyvinyl Butyral (PVB). This keeps the outer layers bonded together even when broken and prevents the window from breaking up into sharp pieces. The PVB layer also has the advantage of adding a much higher sound reduction quality to the glazing. The thickness of the laminate glass used is 6.4mm.
