For optimal work productivity, it is important that your workplace has the right atmosphere for the performance of employees. But achieving the right blend of building design and work environment can be challenging and many businesses struggle to succeed. The open plan office layout is now very common. This is because it is flexible and more economical to run as compared to a design based on smaller, separate rooms. But companies’ needs do differ and one shoe does not fit all.
Office partitioning might be necessary for your organisation to make the office more suited to your requirements. But what about privacy? Well, innovations in the glass industry have made glass even more versatile by giving it the ability to create privacy at the flick of a switch.
This type of glass is called Switchable Glass. It will give your office that amazing modern-office feel while still providing the privacy offered by traditional walls. Otherwise known as “smartglass” it can also be used to replace exterior windows with great results. The glass will help regulate the interior temperature and control the amount of ambient light in the office.
Switchable Glass can transform your office space in the following ways:
Creating new private spaces with minimal effort Switchable Glass can transform once public areas into private hubs where employees can perform sensitive duties.
