Frameless Glass Doors – For a Better Workspace

Open plan offices with large windows work. Rather than blocked off rooms, installing frameless glass doors to partition off areas ensures that natural light bounces and reflects through the entire office creating an airy, light and energised space. What’s more, frameless glass doors look contemporary and stylish telling clients that you are a forward thinking company creating a positive vibe and attitude.

Research has shown that buildings can make workers sick. And for a company with a sick or downbeat workforce, the future looks bleak. Sick workers impact on your profit margins with more absenteeism, lower energy and increased negativity. Investing in improving the movement of natural light could be an effective solution. According to recent studies from the Carnegie Mellon School of Architecture in America, there are several building factors that will affect our health, including:

  • Mould – if an office is mouldy and damp, breathing in the spores has been directly linked to asthma and allergies as well as long term respiratory problems.
  • Fresh air – Fresh air improves your respiratory health helping your brain and body stay alert and awake.
  • Nature – Numerous studies have shown how nature can impact on our emotional well being and stress levels. If your office is in the city but you’re lucky enough to have a roof or balcony, frameless glass doors looking out onto spaces packed with pot plants is something all architects and designers should aspire to.
  • Daylight – In a press report, Professor Vivian Loftness from the Carnegie Mellon School said: “One of my life’s goals is to make windowless and basement offices illegal. Some hospital studies are showing very clearly that patients with south eastern views (getting direct morning sun) have shorter stays than patients facing in other directions.” She added that she would like to see natural light in office buildings be mandatory.

Office buildings are places many of us spent considerable time. And the buildings can have a huge impact on our physical as well as mental health. A report in the LA Times revealed that employees have sued workplaces for triggering Seasonal Affective Disorder; one teacher sued her school for refusing to move her from a windowless basement room.

Porch glass cutains

Everybody from survey to install knew what they had to do and advised on what needed to be done prior to install. The glass cutains are just what was needed for the porch and have created a talking point within the village. They do look splendid and we are very pleased with them.
