Upgrade for open-plan offices

Partition walls made of real glass

Go Back

Ever since its birth, there has been a debate about whether it really makes sense: the open-plan office. Clear advantage: It saves space, communication among colleagues is facilitated, employers save money through structural separations and changeable workstations. Opposing voices denouncing noise levels and a lack of privacy are now getting an unintentional boost due to the Corona crisis.

Returning to everyday office life presents employers with the challenge of separating their employees from each other without having to spend a lot of money and carry out major reconstruction work. Office architects are looking for suitable solutions, from the repositioning of the desks and disinfectant dispensers integrated into the desks to special air filters or windows that can actually be opened – which is not a matter of course in many places. It will most likely be transparent partition walls, however, because they are as simple and cost-effective as they are efficient. It is best if they are mobile, freestanding and can be set up within minutes.

Of course, this does not prevent infection altogether, but coupled with additional hygiene measures and compliance with appropriate rules of conduct, the spread of viruses and other pathogens is significantly reduced. The decisive factor here is the material: Only a partition wall made of real glass is resistant to chemical disinfectants. Due to its smooth, pore-free surface, glass is particularly easy to clean and remains hygienically clean. Glass is durable, stable, sustainable and 100% recyclable. Real glass has a high resistance to scratching, there is no electrostatic charging and no distortions. Last but not least, glass partition walls impress with their classy, high-quality appearance and can therefore continue to be used as decorative, structuring room dividers after the crisis is over.
