Glass partitions can be installed quickly and easily, and they are flexible enough to accommodate fluctuations in staffing. Also, because the partitions look attractive, they are the standard design for office cubicles.
Universal glass partition walls contribute to the desire for a friendlier and greener office environment. The following are their advantages:
- Lacking the need for dry walls
Drywall was widely used during the post-war years and was a revolution in construction. Builders and developers have since moved away from expensive and heavy plaster and lath construction to a more affordable, lighter new approach using drywall. However, there are several disadvantages to drywall, including that it cannot be recycled. Glass, therefore, has been a better alternative in recent years.
- They have broken the cycle of primary resource waste
Although drywall suppliers claim that it is recyclable, it is not totally true. Certain components of the dry wall cannot be recycled, such as gypsum. Only a small amount of dry wall can be refurbished, and the rest have to be demolished and discarded. On the other hand, glass partitions can be re-used in an absolutely different space, or easily recycled.
- They help in saving energy
With glass partitions, businesses can use less energy for cooling and heating their offices. Glass partitions are an improvement in energy efficiency because they take up little space, allowing natural light to penetrate through them. Drywalls would otherwise interfere with air circulation and thus require businesses to run furnaces for long periods.
