Glass partitions or (glass partition walls) are high-quality, non load-bearing panes of glass that function as room dividers. Glass partition walls are great for opening up a room and creating open, airy work environments. Partition wall systems are typically full glass (ceiling to wall) partitions. Aluminum frames or other mounting hardware hold these systems in place. Read more...
As a building material, this interior glass allows designers and architects to divide a room, without sacrificing floor space and light diffusion. Glass partition walls are ideal for creating comfortable and practical office working environments. When you allow natural light to flow into a given space, it changes how shapes, colors, patterns, textures and people interact. Glass partition walls are also one of the simplest ways to update an office or commercial space.
These glazing systems systems are gaining in popularity over traditional drywall installations. Interior designers and architects both appreciate these glass wall systems for their scalability and translucent properties. What are the best glass designs for partitions?
Glass Partition Wall Design Advantages:
Aluminum framed glass partition walls: These fully framed systems are best suited for use in offices and retail spaces. Partition walls also have residential applications as well. A framed partition wall system creates rooms and separates work areas. Consider your office design or retail space needs as you select these glass modules. In many cases, installation is simple for a trained installer.
MATERIAL COMPOSITION Aluminum is typically the preferred building material for holding framed glass partitions in place. This light-weight material lends sufficient rigidity and prevents against corrosion. The surface of the aluminum framing is sometimes finished with natural anodization or powder coated. Slimmer profile systems are yet another partition solution to consider.
Each framed module may also be specified with various infills. Each glass pane is fixed in the framed module with a special transparent silicon sealing, making the transition from glass to aluminum nearly invisible. You may also spec a partition with tempered glass (clear, tinted or opaque) or melamine, MDF, veneer, PVC or acrylic boards.
DOORS AND MOUNTING HARDWARE An aluminum profiled partition wall system may include typical aluminum framed hinged doors or sliding doors with a bottom guide track. Systems may also incorporate suspended doors with an upper guide track. This leaves the floor surface free from tripping hazards. Recessed door handles and surface mounted rail or pull handles are other options to consider. Locking systems typically incorporate narrow profile locks intended for use in aluminum doors.
Full glass partition walls These are full floor to ceiling glass installations. Given their minimum profile, full glass partition walls leave nearly the entire glass wall area free. These systems create the most airy of working environments.
