How is a glass partition installed?

This is the most important step for any glass partition wall, as the correct installation will make sure the wall lasts over time without any problems. Rest assured we are the UK’s industry-leading independent supplier and installer of glass partitions, because of our attention to detail and appreciation for every step of the process. 

There are different designs for glass partition walls and the most modern is a frameless glass partition. This is a floor-to-ceiling design that creates an invisible effect. This is a great option for light-deprived spaces as it will flood a room with sunlight.

You set the glass partition in the top and bottom brackets for a secure fit. A clip copolymer strip is then set between the glass partition and the brackets to ensure there is no movement. Finally, a rubber gasket is used to further secure the glass partition. This will stop the glass partition from sliding at each end of where the brackets sit. 

This process typically takes 1 – 5 days depending on the size of the glass partition wall, but will be outlined at the start of the installation process and before the glass order is placed.

What are the different soundproofing levels that a glass partition wall can block?

We supply the best glass partition walls in the UK and make sure installations are done to the highest standard. We test the soundproofing of all installations to make sure they are fit for purpose and deliver the db levels stated. 

Our single-glazed partition walls will block out 38db which will cover the top end of ‘soft sound’. This can block out noise such as whispering, keyboard typing and low-level noise. This is ideal for breaking up noise levels in an open-plan office, which is common in modern buildings. This creates a collaborative space for everyone to work in but keeps travelling noise to a minimum. 

Our double-glazed will block out 46db which will cover the middle ground of ‘moderate sound’. This is perfect for meeting rooms and the rating we’d recommend to keep private conversations private. As a level comparison it will block out dishwashers, moderate rainfall and any normal conversation.

What are the differences?

Single glazed

Single glazing that is mighty tough and strong soundproofing against a busy office space. Single glazing partitions are good up to 38 dB which is very impressive and will keep low-level conversations private. Equally, they will create quiet spaces away from a busy office if you need some time away from your colleagues.

Single glazing comes in several different options with our fully demountable single glaze system. A range of bespoke styles will fit the needs of your office space, as a trusted supplier of glass partitions we fit industry-leading minimal and chunky framework styles. Depending on your needs and preferences we can powder coat the framework with your brand colours, this allows the glass partitions to blend into your office space and be an easy-on-the-eye addition to your space.

Single glazing also comes in toughened glass, or acoustic laminated glass to ensure any specific acoustic ratings you need are met. This fully bespoke approach ensures you always get what you want the first time. With the minimal design, we can keep the glass clear and add glass dry joints to give an invisible effect from floor to ceiling. However, we understand that might not be the case for everyone and does not meet the requirements for most meeting rooms. Privacy graphics or film can be added to customise the level of privacy you need in your office.
