The Advantages of Glazed Partitioning

Installing a new partition can offer a return to former functionality, increased space, and enhanced energy efficiency when combined with proper glazing. Single glazed partitioning is highly effective and fast to install, offering maximum space flexibility with minimum disruption to existing structures. Single glazed partitions are created by applying a glass surface to a base membrane, with the inner surface of the glass acting as a rigid backing, and comprising progressively finer layers of glass. The result is a type of partition which is both water tight and durable, permitting the greater flow of air and light through it, than other types of partitioning. With single glazing, glazed partitioning creates a fully sealed system, eliminating any possibility for air to escape or be trapped within the structure, increasing the efficiency of the installation and ensuring the integrity of the partition. Further, because there is no space between the glass panes, any refraction or issues with glare is reduced, which also offers a further benefit of greater energy efficiency.

Why Choose Glazed Partitioning For Your Meeting Rooms

Single-glass partitioning is ideal for highly modern office buildings, providing an excellent level of thermal control and acoustic performance, while at the same time contributing towards improved structural stability. Fast and effective to install, single-glazed partitions can also be fully demountable, so that multiple partitions can be reconfigured as needed, while high quality materials and components, such as installing post holders, ensure longevity and strength. Aluminium framed partitions, by contrast, are designed to achieve a more flexible partitioning option, often accommodating a greater number of partitions. Aluminium framed partitions also offer a greater degree of acoustic performance than other options, due to their lightweight and durable nature.

Both single-glazed and framed partitions can offer a full range of partition applications, ranging from increased loading capacity during temporary works to highly complex construction projects. Depending upon the application, a wide range of partitioning systems including roller track and inclined plane partition systems can be selected, with the glazing offering a highly efficient means of thermal control. The increased load capacity offered by partitioned glass also allows greater temperature and humidity control, reducing the risk of costly heating and cooling bills and saving the opportunity to use low-emission heating and cooling systems. When the glass is clear, it also allows the opportunity for more natural light into the building, and consequently, increased levels of productivity can also be achieved. Aluminium framed partitioning systems achieve all these objectives, offering a cost effective solution to a wide range of partitioning requirements.
