Offices are pushing toward large, open spaces in the workplace, more people are working in glass offices or conference rooms than ever before. Roughly 68 percent of U.S. offices have an “open plan” design, with work surfaces separated by low or no walls. The remaining offices and conference rooms are often walled in glass, creating an optimal balance of private and collaborative spaces to fulfill multiple functions.
Glass walls and doors offer better communication and collaboration, improved performance, more natural light, contemporary aesthetics and expansive views. The benefits have made glass wall office fronts an attractive solution for office interiors, and companies working in the commercial interiors industry must understand the capabilities and limitations of the various options available.
