Glass Partition Walls
Glass partition walls are one of the simplest ways to update your space and incorporate your more modern taste. These offer huge advantages over traditional building materials like drywall. Not only do these systems improve the aesthetics of a given space, but they also promote co-worker connectivity and openness.
These glass systems are gaining in popularity with interior designers for their scalability and translucent properties. When you allow natural light to flow into a given space, it changes how shapes, colors, patterns, textures and people interact.
Glass Partition Wall Design Advantages:
- Despite their higher initial cost, glass partition walls are over time often more affordable than traditional building materials like drywall.
- These commercial glass systems are scalable, meaning that they can be reconfigured and moved to accommodate your widest array of needs. Sheetrock is a more permanent and often immovable fixture.
- Glass partition walls afford greater transparency. Not simply because they are glass, but because your customers, clients and employees can peer into them. This creates a greater feeling of openness and connectivity.
Your customer’s first impression of your building depends on your storefront. A storefront with gleaming commercial glass doors communicates much more than what your business does, it communicates your tastes, aesthetic and who you are not only as a company, but as people. Updating your storefront glass makes a statement about your business and the type of clients you want to attract.
Adding proper storefront glass may also increase the value of your building or space. In addition to its aesthetic advantages, installing a new glass front reduces energy and power costs. This can help keep your commercial space cooler in the summer and warmer in winter.
Storefront Glass Design Advantages:
- Refreshed storefront glass doors instantly enhance the curb appeal and sexiness of your business or company.
- Properly installed storefront glass results in long-term energy savings and energy efficiency.
- Using greater amounts of storefront glass allows more natural light to filter in and illuminate your retail space.
A glass curtain wall system is essentially a non-structural glass facade. This modern glass alternative is often a lightweight and often cost-effective solution to traditional building design and materials.
This system is not load-bearing, meaning that doesn’t carry any dead load weight from the building other than its own dead load weight. The wall transfers horizontal wind loads that are incident upon it to the main building structure through connections at floors or columns of the building.
A curtain wall is also particularly advantageous for use in Nevada as it resists air and water infiltration, sway induced by wind and seismic forces acting on the building. Curtain wall glass systems differ from other glazing systems in that they span multiple floors, and take into consideration design requirements.
Glass Curtain Wall Design Advantages:
- Given its translucent nature, glass curtain wall systems allow for natural light to penetrate deeper into your office space or commercial storefront.
- Curtain walls are thermally efficient, which results in cost effective heating, cooling and lighting throughout your building.
- Curtain walls increase curb appeal and instantly modernize the look of your building or office space.
- Materials for glass curtain walls are often more cost effective and easier to install as opposed to traditional building materials and facades.
