The benefits of having office partitions installed
Office partitions are fitted for a number of reasons:
- To create private spaces, reducing noise and distractions.
- Creating meeting spaces separate from the main office.
- Keeping visible and sensitive information or conversations private.
- To reduce and control odours around canteens and kitchens.
Deciding what type of partitions are right for your office will depend on your organisation, the space available and what you are looking to achieve overall.
Office partitions don’t work for every organisation so it is best to speak to your designer or architects who will find the best fit for your requirements. There are several options available for most spaces. Currently most popular are frameless partitions which simply means that there are no frames or posts between each pane of glass, giving perception of even more space.
To add even more privacy to your partitioning, we recommend installing LT Smart switchable smart glass. This enables your organisation to have privacy on demand at a flick of a switch, the glass switches between frosted and clear.
Lighting is an integral part of office design
Just like the layout of the office, installing the correct lighting can have a huge impact on the people who use the space. LED Lighting is a great choice, saving money and providing a better quality of light. Natural light is one of the best assets an office can have, making people feel that they are connecting with outside world and being able to work comfortably. Using different lighting in different zones is also a great way to create that buzz and creating distinct zonal areas. Installing glass partitioning can help open up and draw daylight into the office whilst still maintaining the convenience of separate spaces.
Breakout zones are key to increase productivity
Research shows that 1 in 5 people believe that having space to chill and relax in or the ability to work away from their desks would improve their productivity. A creatively designed breakout zone can be used as a multifunctional space throughout the day from holding lunch meetings to informal client visits or presentations. These areas are perfect for the team to share ideas, brainstorm or simply recharge before taking on the next task.
Partitioning should be looked at as an investment not a cost!!
