Types of Glazed Screens

Glazed screens are a great way to divide space while keeping natural light flowing into areas that may not have exterior windows. They are also highly flexible, allowing offices to easily reconfigure their space to match changing office needs without the cost and disruption of drywall or interior walls.

There are several types of glazed screens available depending on the acoustic and design requirements of your space. Single glazed systems offer sleek, minimalist looks while providing optimum strength. Suitable for both framed and frameless applications, they are available in a choice of finishes including Satin Aluminium, Brushed Stainless Steel effect or any RAL colour. They can be specified with either toughened or laminated glass, working in both framed and frameless doors.

Seeing Through Style: The Elegance and Utility of Glazed Screens

Glass partitions are ideal for large floor-to-ceiling areas and can be treated with etchings, whiteboard coatings or opaque frosting for privacy. They are often used in reception spaces to create a clean and inviting atmosphere that helps staff and visitors stay safe from germs. During the COVID-19 pandemic, they were also popular for dividing offices to help protect against the spread of germs and keep people isolated from one another.

A common glazing option is to have the glass tinted with a low-emissivity coating. This reduces solar radiation, which helps to lower cooling costs and energy usage. It does this by absorbing and reflecting long-wave infrared heat while still transmitting visible light. This is particularly useful for east and west facing windows that are exposed to the sun for extended periods during summer and winter.
