Demountable Glass Partitions in the Office

Glass demountable partitions have been gaining in popularity for commercial office spaces over the past decade. While the average office size has typically shrunk, utilizing demountable glass partitions gains precious inches back into usable space and creates a sense of openness. An often-overlooked benefit of glass partitions is the increased saturation of natural light deeper into the workspace. In a 2011 study The University of Oregon determined that workers that had a higher quality view from their desk and exposure to natural light took 6.5% less sick time. Cornell University also published a study that indicated an 84% drop in issues such as headaches, eye strain, and blurred vision when workers receive regular exposure to natural light. While the benefits of introducing glass partitions into the workplace are apparent, the most common grievance against the systems have been low STC ratings.
