Choosing The Right Glass Partitions For Your Workplace

Our Office Partitioning Buyers Guide is designed to help you move forward in the process of purchasing and installing glazed partitions.  To highlight the considerations in terms of product type, functionality, maintenance and price. 

For any fit out project it can be difficult to cut through the information, finding what’s relevant for your business and meeting your brief and budget.  We start each project with consultation, followed by space planning and then move to interior design and planning.  This then allows us to give a project timeline and budget to the client.  Each fit out is given a designated project manger to oversee the office project from start to finish.

Benefits from Introducing Glass Partitions

The scope of flexibility, scalability, and modification that glass partitioning systems and solutions provide is one of the main benefits for using within designing, refitting, or rezoning office spaces.  Redesigning the layout of a space can be costly and time consuming however by using glass partitioning systems redefining office layouts can be achieved in a timelier and more cost-effective manner.  Demountable glazed partition walls can be dismantled and relocated to reconfigure a workspace to meet changes within the business.

The introduction of glass partition walls and dividers reduce noise pollution within the workplace reducing distractions and increasing productivity.  Both single- and double-glazed glass partition systems insulate and protect from noise, providing a quieter place to work.  The distractions of a large open plan office are not conducive for everyone and glass partitions provide a convenient solution where individuals can work in privacy and without feeling isolated or cut off from their colleagues.

Frequently Asked Questions

1 - What is a glass partition wall?
A glass partition wall is an interior wall structure made primarily of glass or a glass alternative.  The glass panels are paired with aluminium frames (available in a range of finishes), designed to retain heat in during the winter and keep out excess heat in the warmer months.  Glass walls or partitions can be used as office dividers, walls, or features.  Glazed Partitions allow offices and space to be reconfigured easily while reducing noise pollution and controlling the distribution of sound from one space and another. 
2 - Why are glass walls so popular in modern offices?
There are many reasons to install glass/glazed partition walls in an office space.  Often it is to create conference rooms, meeting rooms or private cellular offices.  There are many benefits and staff often prefer the communication, collaboration, and privacy advantages.  Glazed Partitions allow for more natural light and openness which can improve mood and energy costs are saved.  Glazed partitions are also movable, unlike a stud wall which is more difficult and costly to relocate, office glass partitions can be taken down and repositioned.  
3 - Are glass walls durable?
The most common type of glass used in the glazed partitioning industry is toughened glass, also commonly referred to as safety glass. This glass is taken through a heating process to toughened it making it four to five times stronger and more durable than annealed glass.  Therefore, glazed partition walls are extremely strong and durable, there is very little maintenance required and they can last for years.  When investing in designed or refitting an office or workplace choosing materials that are durable is key.  Fit Out solutions that will last the test of time and while providing the design functions required is another advantage of glazed partitions especially compared to static, stud walls.  Single- and double-glazed partitions go through rigorous testing and are produced to the highest standards for quality and safety and are far more durable than standard glass.  
4 - What is a relocation glass partition wall?
These are movable or demountable partition walls; they can be taken down and relocated to a different part of the office space.  They are a versatile solution used in many offices and are quick and easy to install.  Demountable partitions are a particular favourable fit out solution with project managers and interior designers as they allow for changes to be made to the workspace without further substantial investment.   
5 - Do Interior Designers recommend glass partitions for the workplace?
Yes, generally glass walls are popular with designers as they keep the same space and increase light.  Natural light has a positive effect on human interaction and gives scope to designers to introduce creative elements.  Conference rooms, meeting rooms and cellular offices can be easily designed to the designated size and rather than being cut off from colleagues the glazed walls allow for a sense of inclusion while allowing privacy and quiet to focus on tasks.  Interior Designers and project managers prefer the adaptability that glass walls provide, allowing for scope of change with future redesign or refitting.  The more natural light allowed the better for employees well being at work which has become an integral element when refitting a workspace.      
6 - How do you select the right glass for your workplace?
Begin with the benchmark criteria of what you want to achieve by installing glass/glazed partitions – consider the budget and timescale permitted for the project and then work back to find the best solution.  This is where Hunt office Interiors comes in, with our vast experience over many years and multiple extensive partitioning projects we can present you with options that will work for you.  We provide 3D visuals of our designs allowing you to see your design come to life before install and fit out begins.  Why not browse some of our recent fit out projects or view examples of glass partitions in our Dublin, Cork and Limerick Showrooms. 
7 - Do glass partitions in the office offer flexibility?
Yes, glass partitions are hugely versatile.  They introduce an amount of flexibility not gained by any other fit out solution.  Changing the layout of an office space can be a tricky and costly exercise.  Demounting glass partitions is a much easier and cost-effective solution to alter a workspace. Glass partitions greatly improve the aesthetic value of a workspace, they have an elegant and modern appearance which enhances and compliments any size of office space.  The glazed walls can be frosted and etched with corporate logos and designs and really allow clients to be creative with their space and introduce bespoke or custom build features to design a truly unique and inspirational workplace for staff, clients and visitors.
