From its professional aesthetic appeal to its honest practicality, placing glass partitions throughout your office space boasts enormous benefits. Not only is this trend increasing in popularity but quickly proving to be an architectural choice amongst professionals across the global.

This is particularly true for companies, following the end of the national lockdown, where people will be looking forward to ‘seeing’ each other again. Glass partitioning allows privacy while satisfying the need for human contact. 

Need a little more convincing? Here are our top 4 reason why glass deserves a place in your office:

Professionalism

It is important to create a space that allows for both staff and clients to feel welcomed. Often described by our clients as modern and presentable, glass’s aesthetic professionalism creates an environment that people want to be a part of.

The transparent nature of the glass ultimately suggests transparency in the workplace. The open visibility of this material therefore inherently reflects honesty and directness. A good relationship with your clients is vital and displaying that you have a ‘nothing to hide’ ethos will enhance client trust and boost your company’s bottom line.

The liquidity of style can also take on the essence of your business. Whether you want to emanate a refined corporate look and feel with elegant simplicity or boast a creative flair with patterned, tinted, and textured designs— the office can be an immediate extension of your business’s values and purpose.

Cost Efficiency

Glass is the more cost-conscious and environmentally friendly option. Glass–partitioned walls allow for natural light to flow throughout the workplace— reducing the need for artificial lighting which, in turn, will lower your electricity bills while simultaneously reducing your company’s carbon footprint.

Glass partitioning is also substantially lower in cost than that of a more traditional wall. Glass walls and partitions are not only cost-effective when it comes to their initial design and construction, but their inherent flexibility allows for an easy and inexpensive remodelling.

Productivity

Glass partitioning has been known to increase worker productivity whilst still offering a sense of privacy and solitude without isolation.

Natural light in the workplace has been known to increase employee work rates. A recent study found that there was an 84 percent decrease in eyestrain, headaches and blurred vision when workers were exposed to natural lighting in their office space. It, therefore, becomes evident that natural lighting increases the health and mood of all staff. Implementing glass partitioning will not only brighten up the workplace but your workers.

Contamination

Where healthcare facilities are opting to switch to glass partitioning in order to enhance infection control, office spaces should also look towards this future.

It is no secret that the Covid-19 outbreak has had damaging repercussions on businesses everywhere. As governments urge people to self-quarantine, companies suffer as a result as not all jobs can be performed remotely. Therefore, it is important to take precautions within the workplace.

Glass is one of the simplest materials to clean and disinfect and by assembling glass partitioning between workspaces, you can create a safe and sterile environment for employees.

The Covid-19 came as a surprise; therefore, provisions should be put in place in order to control or prevent any future diseases that may occur.

As the business world leans towards environmentally- friendly options without the forfeit of aesthetic appeal, funds, productivity and health—glass in the office is proving to be the most practical and visually pleasing design element today.
