Today’s commercial spaces go beyond what is purely utilitarian, and glass partition walls play an important role. Often, office spaces are designed with an eye to employee health and happiness as well as productivity. (Of course the three are actually interconnected.) In accord with this trend, you may wish to steer away from stereotypical windowless cubicles in favor of something with a more positive vibe. Using glass, rather than traditional walls, to divide work stations allows you to keep an open ambiance while still providing a level of separation between desks and areas with diverse functions.
Like many custom glass products, glass partition walls can be framed or frameless. On a frameless room divider or wall system, you will see very little metal. Small clips, unobtrusive tracking, and the like take the place of framing. When you want to maintain visual continuity between spaces, clear unframed glass is your best choice, and this type of partition imparts a sleek, futuristic look.
These days, however, the pairing of glass and matte black metal is also popular. There are a couple ways to achieve this combo with glass walls.
A wide range of glass styles can be used in the creation of room dividers. This allows you to customize the appearance and level of privacy offered by each wall or screen.
You may wish to use various types of glass within one commercial space, and this is not a problem when you work with a custom glass shop.
Office dividers are typically attached to existing surfaces (floor, wall, ceiling) with clips, tracking, etc. Although this is a permanent installation, keep in mind that glass walls are much easier to move or remove than traditional walls. In some cases, however, you may prefer a fully movable screen, and ABC Glass & Mirror can help. We can create free standing partitions or service screens, as well as rolling framed glass screens. If you’re not sure what type of divider is best for your situation, we invite you to give us a call at (703)257-7150. We can discuss some options over the phone and also schedule a free consultation at your commercial site.
