One of the popular choices in the modern workplace layout is glass partitions. As a building material glass partitions allow designers and architects to divide a room, without sacrificing floor space and light diffusion. Glass partitioned walls are ideal for creating comfortable and practical office working environments that can be open, dynamic, and moveable. In the last few years, glass partitions have expanded their use and functionality with the use of smart glass.
Smart glass is glass that can be changed from clear to opaque with a flip of a switch or any smart controller. When used in partitions, smart glass can provide dynamic, controllable privacy functionality to meeting rooms and office areas where privacy is needed or required. For architects and designers, utilizing smart glass partitions can create a modern, hi-tech work environment that employees and visitors will admire. Smart glass can also help control the amount of solar glare and can block harmful UV rays. And one of the coolest things about smart glass partitions is that they can be used as a whiteboarding surface, making it an ideal solution for workplace collaboration and brainstorming.
Nxtwall, one of the premier suppliers of sustainable, demountable and removable office walls and partition systems, said this of smart glass partitions, “The UL approved technology provides an unprecedented command over the amount of light, privacy, glare, and heat that enters a space and is ideal for Commercial Interior, Government Services and Higher Education applications. Switchable glass and film can also be thoroughly cleaned, unlike curtains and blinds, therefore, it is especially useful in the healthcare and medical services arena. Switchable glass can even block harmful UV and Infrared (IR) rays protecting both furniture and people from damage.”
