We break down the basics of office partitions…. you’ll be an expert in a minute!
Office partitions provide not only privacy, they also allow for flexible office layout and optimise office space.
Deciding which type of office partitions to choose will depend on the type of business you run and the level of privacy and/or security you require. You’ll also want to consider other factors such as the natural lighting in your office space, acoustics and fire-retardance needs.
Full Height Glass Partitions
Full height glass partitions allow for maximum distribution of natural light and provide a modern minimalist, open and airy look and feel to an office space. If privacy is an issue, this can be achieved by using frosted glass, or coloured glass, which will still allow light penetration.
Glass partitions are quick to install and perfect for creating small office spaces within a larger area.
Full Height Plaster Partitions
Plaster partitions are more permanent than glass partitions. Plaster partitions provide greater noise (acoustic) insulation and are able to conceal electric wiring, cabling or plumbing. An added feature of plaster partitions is the ability for them to be painted to match existing decor or allow for feature walls.
Plaster partitions also allow for fixing of items such as shelving or artwork.
Part Plaster / Part Glass Partitions
Partitions constructed of part plaster and part glass might be the best option for partition walls in your office space as they allow for light penetration and some privacy, as well as allow cabling, wiring and plumbing to be installed in the lower plaster partitions sections.
