Considerations for Glazed Office Partitioning
The increased popularity of partitions in office environments has only further increased during the coronavirus pandemic. With social distancing becoming the new normal, partitioning has become more popular than ever, with glass partitions being a firm favourite, but why? We’re taking a look at why glass partitions, in particular, have become so popular.
With glass partitions becoming so popular, there is a growing range of designs and shapes that have been developed, meaning partitions are more versatile to suit your office design than ever before. As well as shapes and sizes being offered in a wider range, you can know pretty much tailor your glass partitions to how opaque they are from clear to allow natural light to frosted to add an element of privacy.
Let The Light In
One of the greatest benefits of glass partitions is the ability to achieve as much natural light as possible, which is another reason they are so popular. Natural light has been proven time and time again to be highly beneficial to employees in the workplace, offering better moods, productivity and motivation.
Natural light creates a much better working environment and should be optimised in the office as much as possible, glass partitions can optimise and expand on the little natural light you might have in the office and allow it to flow better in the office.
Open working offices can make for a much louder environment and for some, that kind of working environment doesn’t allow them to thrive in their roles. Giving employees the option to work in much quieter environments to allow for full concentration is essential to bring out the best in their work and achieve better quality results. Glass partitions are a popular choice for offices that want to offer the best of both worlds, with the hustle and bustle atmosphere but also allowing for a quieter and calmer space to really get your head down and concentrate on the task at hand.
Branding and Aesthetics
If we shift our thinking on office partitioning away from the ‘old’ booth approach stemming office spaces from the 1970s, there has been a paradigm shift in recent years to opening-up workspaces. However, when it comes to glazed partitioning, as mentioned above, the open-plan feel can be maintained with the additional benefits provided by the enclosing of certain areas of the workplace. In addition to this, through the use of manifestations, glazed partitioning can be used as a ‘canvas’ for artwork – being bespoke graphics of displaying the company’s logo and branding styles.
If you are renting your space or just not ready to full commit to a complete remodel of your office space, glass partitions have become a popular way to remodel without making permanent changes. Not only can this be easier on the budget, there are so many ways you can use glass partitioning to achieve your dream office redesign without making permanent cosmetic changes that could become outdated in a short period of time, or simply just not work well for your team. The flexibility of glass partitions is another reason why they have become such a popular choice in the modern office we know today.
