When you buy or rent out an office, you are faced with a huge empty space and don’t know what to do with it or how to make it work to your advantage. Although open-plan offices were a popular design for some time, since then, studies have suggested that having dividers in the room can impact productivity. There are so many different types of partitioners to choose from but glass partitioners have excellent benefits.
Where an open plan layout would increase communication and creativity in the workplace, it has also been found that it can increase the noise levels, causing employees to be unnecessarily distracted.
In a large office, partitioners can be a good way to add an extra level of privacy to an office and make it a generally quieter working space so that employers can focus better. Glass partitions are especially great for this because it allows the office to feel open plan.
Installing dividers allows for meetings to take place privately without everyone hearing what is going on, this can be behind transparent dividers or opaque depending on the level of privacy you require.
A significant way to increase productivity is to utilise as much natural light as available. A study conducted by Future Workplace found that 47% of employees felt very tired in the day due to the absence of natural light and 43% feel gloomy because of it. The addition of glass partitions would allow for separated areas, with reduced noise, but still allows natural light to flow into all the rooms.
Having an aesthetically appealing environment to work in can help people to feel good about going to work. When people feel good about being at work then the work they produce will be better. This is why glass dividers can be a great option over opaque ones, as they create a much more open layout despite the number of walls so it makes space feel and looks nicer rather than being in a small secluded room with four dark walls.
