Types and Uses of Glass Partitions
Work environments have been transformed with the advent of glass partitions. No longer is the choice just between a vast open plan area – with its noise problems and lack of privacy – or dark and dreary individual offices.
Glass walls and glass doors allow natural light to flood through, giving a spacious feel while cutting noise levels and maintaining privacy. Large areas can be divided into comfortable work spaces that can be adjusted in size as needs change. By choosing double glazed partitions, high levels of sound insulation can be achieved. Blinds can also be incorporated within the glazing.
Advances in technology mean that glass can now be curved and glass partitions offer a wide choice of aesthetically pleasing design options.
