5 Reasons Why Your Office Needs Glass Partitions
Most offices are cramped, drab, depressing places, lit only by painful fluorescent lights, but there is a solution! Adding glass partitions to an office fills the place with natural sunshine, and creates a modern, aesthetically-pleasing space that will impress clients and improve employee productivity.
Glass partitions are easy to maintain, which makes them a cost-effective investment. When cleaning, all you need to do is wipe them down with a window cleaning solution, such as Lee Glass & Glazing Glass Cleaner, and a clean, lint-free cloth. As long as they are cleaned regularly, the only money you need to spend on them is if one gets broken. You won’t need to use as much electric lighting with glass partitions, which is another cost-efficient benefit. The natural sunlight will be able to penetrate more of the office space, which saves you money on energy bills.
If you are designing an open-plan office, then introducing glass partitions can improve the sound insulation of certain spaces, such as private offices or meeting rooms. This will help employees who find it difficult to work productively with loud noises around them. Glass partitions lower the number of distractions, and because the office spaces are clearly visible and not hidden away, they can improve communication between staff. Also, employees are more open to supervision so they are encouraged to maintain a productive work rate.
- Improved lighting
Introducing glass partitions instead of solid walls into your office will flood the space with natural sunlight. Without walls stopping the sunlight, it will spread evenly throughout the office, making the space feel less closed in, which is especially beneficial for employees. This improves morale among staff, increases energy and reduces fatigue, which is better for employees’ health and wellbeing. Healthier and happier staff also take less sick days and are more productive.
- Aesthetic appeal
It is important to create an office that will be appealing and impressive to clients. If a client’s first impression is that your office is dated, depressing and unorganised their opinion of your business will be tainted. Glass partitions will modernise your office, adding style and aesthetic appeal. They create an organised office space while still having an open, bright feeling. This will give clients the impression that your business is efficient, up-to-date and professional.
- Privacy and noise control
Glass partitions can reduce noise in the office while retaining the appeal of an open-plan space. If you install high-quality toughened and laminated glass partitions the excellent acoustic properties will lower the background noise of the office while improving privacy for important meetings. Certain areas of the office, such as individual offices and meeting rooms, can be made more private with the use of etched or sandblasted glass as well. This means you can have the benefits of privacy and noise control without having rooms separated by solid walls which make the place feel small and claustrophobic.
