Glass Office Partitioning Service
Using partitions in your office is a way to increase flexibility and make the most of space, as well as giving extra privacy within an open plan environment. Thames will visit your site to discuss what type of office partitioning is best for you, and we will draw up a brief to your requirements before project-managing the whole installation.
Choosing glass office partitioning for your London office, rather than solid partitions, can give a number of specific benefits. Glass ensures a modern, state-of-the-art appearance, and creates a feeling of extra space. It also makes the most of the lighting of your office building. Choice of glass partitions will create an airy atmosphere without any dark corners, and ensure good sight lines to keep employees in visual contact with one another.
If you wish, you can choose a mixture of solid and glass partitions in different parts of the office design. Glass is suitable for all types of building, except possibly with listed buildings, where in some instances its appearance may be judged by a conservation officer as not being in keeping with the age of the property.
Toughened glass walls are a popular choice for office partitions and can be used in both framed and frameless systems, where they will meet high standards of safety while at the same time looking sophisticated and stylish. Use of toughened glass can give extra scope when using glass partitions in the workplace, because of its security advantages.
The high-tech option of switchable glass gives greater versatility to glass partitions. Just flick a switch and the glass walls will become opaque , bringing instant privacy and also allowing you to control levels of light and heat in the area. This state-of-the-art new technology carries a premium price, but may be something which you will want to choose for its extra flexibility, as it means you can adapt your office to changing requirements.
Glass Finishes and Options
Glass manifestation is a film which should be applied to your glass partitioning to ensure safety, in line with the requirements of building regulations, averting the danger of anybody walking into the glass walls by mistake. You can choose from a number of finishes, including frosting, colours and personalised designs, and it is also possible to include corporate logos to make the appearance unique to your company. Manifestation films have become more popular than traditional methods of frosting glass, such as etching, because these designs are highly durable but there is also the possibility to change them if required in the future.
When using glass office partitioning, London-based businesses will find that there are a number of available solutions to ensure privacy for staff and customers. These include frosting, with a wide range of designs to choose from, as well as double-glazed office partitioning incorporating Venetian blinds as an integral part of the design, and use of switchable glass.
Soundproofing can also be an issue when using glass partitioning. Where audible privacy is required, the best solution is either to use solid acoustic partitioning or to go for double-glazed glass partitioning. Thames will discuss with you which types of partitions to choose and deliver the right solution.
