Finding The Ideal Office Partitions For Your Business

Choosing office partitioning

There are so many ways to utilise office partitions, and every single office will have a different need and different vision for their partitions in mind.

Partitions are commonplace in rented office space which is becoming a more and more popular option for modern business as growth can be fast during successful periods, and renting gives the flexibility to upgrade and downgrade your space quickly. The rise in renting office space has gone hand in hand with the rise in the use of office partitions, thanks to the flexibility and versatility that partitioning brings to ever changing and developing office design.

From maximising space to creating different working environments, we are taking a look at how you can find the ideal office partitions for your business.

What are your business and office environment needs?

Before you even look at the styles of partitions to purchase, you need to establish what you are hoping to achieve from your partitions. There are so many ways that partitions can benefit the functionality and the quality of an office design and the working environment, so it’s important to pinpoint what it is that your business needs to achieve or what your office design is lacking. Privacy and confidentiality in the workplace is a common reason for partitions in the workplace for example.

What’s your budget?

Establishing a budget when redesigning your office is essential, and using partitions can usually be a cheaper alternative than full permanent remodelling of your office space. Partitions will obviously range in price and knowing your budget from the get go will help you to achieve your goals easier, making the buying process and design plan much easier to manage too. Partitions come in so many different shapes, sizes and materials from glass to plastic, there is something for every budget.

The design of your partitions

As well as deciding on a shape, material and size, you will need to figure out how you want your partitions to look aesthetically. If you’re creating more private spaces, have you looked into how you can achieve privacy without completely blocking out the rest of the office? There are so many options, especially with glass partitions that allow you to keep natural light but with frosting or branding design on the partitions, you can achieve a more private space without cutting the office environment completely.

The aesthetics of an office are extremely important, and should flow throughout, so consideration into how you can make your partitions part of the office without becoming an eye sore is essential and actually easier to achieve than you may think.

 

At Redditch Partitions & Storage we offer a complete range of unique and tailor made designs to make sure the partitioning we supple and install  fit seamlessly into the aesthetics of your office.

Utilising Glass Partitioning In the Workplace

glass partitioning in the office

Glass partitioning (silicon glazed partitioning) is one of the most popular ways to create, shift and develop the design and demand of your busy office. They offer a cost effective, stylish and secure solution for any workspace.

Building a space that is flexible enough to keep up with the ever changing and developing demands of a busy office can be challenging for any business of any size. Meeting the needs of your clients and employees is a priority to maximise productivity and high quality work, which means finding ways to create a great space for everybody to work and collaborate in harmony is essential.

Rapid reconstruction to meet demands…

As touched on above, the demands of a busy office can be diverse and all business owners should be prepared for that. One of the most important benefits to note about glass partitions, is their flexibility when it comes to reconstruction. Portable partitions allow you to recreate and design spaces to suit the needs of your office, as many times as you like. A space compromised of small individual working spaces, can easily be transformed into one big meeting space with very simple and rapid reconstruction.

Better acoustics…

Modern, open plan workspaces usually find a very common problem with noise pollution in the office. Unlike other modular partitioning solutions, glass partitioning is particularly fantastic at improving acoustics and reducing excessive noise when used in these open plan, airy office without compromising the original design.

If you are looking to significantly reduce excessive noise in your office, half height glass partitions can make a huge difference to this issue.

Allowing more natural light in…

Natural light has been proven time and time again to be highly beneficial to employees and the environment around them. Natural light alone is said increase productivity and wellbeing as well as reducing sick days, so maximising natural light should be at the top of your office design plans.

Glass partitioning can help you to penetrate natural light and spread it across your open plan office from even the gloomiest windows. Many businesses utilise glass partitioning to maximise natural light and allow it to run freely through the office, meaning that everybody can be exposed to the ‘good stuff’!

Branding canvas …

Glass partitioning also has great aesthetic flexibility. With the application of manifestations to the glazing, company branding, logos, or bespoke artowrk can be applied to blend with the décor of the office space or to provide an additional canvas for graphics nad patterning. the manifestations can be semi-transparent so that your workspace will get the benefit of the aesthetic without compromising on the distribution of light whilst maintaining the feel of the office being an expansive physical environment.

 

At Redditch Partitions & Storage, we know every single office space is unique, which is why we can advise you on the best glass partitioning for your particular space, and optimise your experience to maximise the benefits of having them added into your current office design.

How Office Partitioning Can Improve Your Workspace

silicon glazed office partitioning

Office partitioning has become an ideal way to section and structure the workplace for many businesses. Creating purpose built spaces that break up your office dynamic, allowing more structure to the different areas your business may cover in one office floor. We are sharing some of the ways office partitions can improve your office in 2021.

SOCIAL DISTANCING

Social distancing has become the new normal for all of us, and as we begin to see the end in sight with the government mapping out the possibility of office workers returning to their normal working environments by the end of May, it is important that businesses create a space to make employees feel comfortable and space upon their return.

Partitioning offers the ability to divide employees into sections so that you can easily create a space that has clear social distancing, giving them peace of mind and making sure they are working in a safe space.

INCREASING PRODUCTIVITY

Partitions can really help with increasing productivity within employees, as they can help to eliminate distraction whilst working. Some people work well independently but commonly find distractions and procrastination a problem. You can offer a solution to this issue, by offering them a space where they can work independently, free from the distractions of other employees and the general hustle and bustle of the office.

CREATING A SPACE FOR PRIVACY

Some situations and conversations are not meant for the ears and eyes of the entire office, where privacy, confidentiality and sensitivity should be considered. Partitioning offers you the ability to create a meeting space that is a secure and confidential environment for you to have difficult discussions or make confidential decisions without the glaring eyes of the rest of the team on you. Partitioning can be really great for those that need to be present in the room for their team of employees, but also need to run one to one meetings, appraisals and other confidential matters.

COLLABORATIVE WORKING

Collaborative working can inspire amazing work, which is usually achieved when a team comes together free of outside distraction and with sole focus on the task at hand. Partitioning can help you create a collaborative working space that allows teams to come together, again, free of distraction and outside influence across the rest of the office.

If you are looking to add office partitions and improve the productivity in your workplace post-lockdown, we would love to help. Redditch Partitions & Storage offer a complete range of partitioning solutions that can be used for a wide range of reasons in the workplace.
