Glass Office Partitions - Everything You Need to Know

July 20, 2022

Privacy plays a vital role in the office space; writers need it to focus on work while testers need it to find bugs in a program, and the same for designers for creative flow. All humans need privacy to function correctly in one or another way.

Whether you are having a small business or a giant corporation, privacy is required by almost everybody. Does your office promote focus and productivity? The lack of privacy at the workplace hinders a person’s sense of autonomy and less control over the working environment and causes suffering in productivity.  You can create glass partition walls for offices.

Some employees complain that they can’t find a space for private calls from their doctor, child’s school, or calls related to work matters; they either have to go to the bathroom, conference room, or outside the office premises.

Privacy allows us to set social boundaries, implies freedom to share, gives freedom about who should have access to our information, etc. Privacy is essential as it takes time and space to transform ideas into practical solutions. The Glass partition in London can assist you in designing the space according to your current and future requirements.

Types of Privacy

1. Territorial Privacy

Territorial privacy is a state of being free from public scrutiny and judgements. There are different ways of establishing territorial privacy, either by assigning a particular workstation, offering a private cabin or a designated private talk area. But it is hard to create territorial privacy in the case of an open workspace structure. Employees should have a sense of belonging to a space. You can consult our office space consultant to establish territorial privacy.

2. Acoustic Privacy

Acoustic privacy can be achieved in two ways: either by absorbing noise effectively or by offering quiet zones. In the open office layout, working without getting disturbed by noise is a big win in itself. To meet this goal, one can use a perforated ceiling, create an enclosed space, sound absorber, acoustic dampers, living plants, acoustic panels, carpets, partitions, or living goals.

3. Visual Privacy

Another type of privacy is visual privacy, and the good thing is that one can provide visual privacy by making certain changes in the layout. We believe people sometimes need space to get away from distractions or where they do not want to be seen. Create visual privacy with the help of room dividers, high backs, natural plants, panels, partitions, elegant furniture, etc.

Why Use Glass Partitions?

1. Low Remodelling Cost Investment

One of the critical benefits of glass partitions is that they do not need high investment. The in-house maintenance team should be able to handle it, or even in the absence of an in-house maintenance team, you can hire a local group. The beauty of a modular glass partition is that it is designed keeping in mind the portability factor. Without using special tools, remodelling is easy and less time-consuming.

2. Improved Acoustic

One of the significant issues with the open space is the excessive noise. Drywall or wooden partitions may reduce noise, but it does not do justice to the overall look of the open space. While glass partition, on the other hand, reduces noise to a great extent and improves the overall acoustics of the space. Plus, the portability factor of the glass partition allows it to move until you get the desired result.

3. More Natural Light

Natural light brings positivity and a working mood to the workspace. Using portable glass partitions, one can maximise the sunlight into the space and penetrate the gloomiest of the corners. With more natural light, the dependency on artificial lights also gets reduced. Remember that you always have the option to change the position with the flexible glass partitions.

Types of Glass Partitions

There are a plethora of glass partition walls, following are some of the common options available. For more options you can contact GXI Group for more glass office partitions options.

1. Double-glazed Glass

Double-glazed glass partitions may look very much like single-glazed glass partitions. It is a high-end solution to add privacy to office space, commercial buildings, etc. The frameless double-glazed glass looks professional and smart for the workplace. Double-glazed glass blinds two glass sheets together to improve sound insulation.

2. Full Height Glass Wall

A full height glass covers the floor to ceiling as there are several benefits of it like noise reduction, privacy through the frosting, natural lights, flexibility, sustainability and a lot more. It also gives a sense of larger space. For complete privacy, one can use frosting, blinds, double-glazed glass, smart glass, designed glass, etc.

3. Half-height Glass Partition

You can mix traditional and modern office styles with a half-height glass partition. Based on how much interaction is required by your employees with each other, you can choose the type. In this type of partition, glass is used for half of the wall, and the other half, either wall or other division, is used. This gives a sense of privacy, and employees can wave goodbye to each other.
