Aluminium or Glass Partitions: Which are Right for Your Office?
Over the past decade, open-plan offices have grown in popularity. However, with the Covid-19 pandemic changing the way we work, it’s now important to have separate areas for people to work safely. If you’re thinking about installing partitions in your office in Kent, this guide will help you decide if aluminium or glass partitions are right for your workspace.
What are office partitions?
Office partitions are temporary walls that create zones in a workspace. They’re easy to install, cost-effective, and much easier than putting up actual walls. Plus, if you ever want to reconfigure your office layout, office partitions are much easier to move around.
They come in a range of styles including glass and aluminium, as well as timber and even living plant walls.
Aluminium and glass are the most hygienic partition options, so this post will focus on these in particular.
Aluminium partitions are one of the most durable options and are popular with offices in Kent. They consist of a bespoke aluminium frame with partial or full glazing that can be frosted for added privacy.
Range of colours
Aluminium partitions are easy to install with minimal disruption, and the metal frames can be powder coated in a range of colours to match your branding.
Blinds can also be added to give more privacy to offices or meeting rooms when needed.
Solid aluminium partitions reduce sound by 52 dB (Rw), which is perfect if you’re looking for a quiet meeting space.
However, they do obstruct light and line of sight entirely. Even aluminium frames with glazing will give some level of obstruction to light and line of sight.
Glass partitions are a stunning addition to any office. They allow light to flood all corners of the space and give a clear line of sight.
Glass also gives a sleek, timeless look that will be in style for years to come. Although aluminium framing is a current architectural trend, it may go out of style in the coming years.
Impressive first impression
An office with a lot of glass looks and feels impressive. This is why large firms utilise glass walls in corporate offices.
There’s no better way to make a great first impression on clients than with glass partitions.
Options for privacy
There are many different options to give added privacy to offices with glass partitions. From frosted glass or graphics to blinds, you won’t always need to worry about a lack of privacy in meeting rooms or private spaces.
