Light scale and open concept designs have definitely made an impact on workplace trends. While collaboration has a great story and allure for many employees, there is still a need for office space conducive to “heads down work”. So, how do you keep this open work environment appeal and increase productivity at the same time? Glass!
Below are 3 ways to use glass to help enhance productivity in open workplace applications.
Product: Voi® Glass Privacy Screens
Benefit: Space Division and Visual Privacy
Benching applications are a great space and money saver compared to panels, but make communication extremely easy. Use Voi privacy screens to help bring seclusion to these stations while still encouraging collaboration when needed.
Product: Frameless Glass on panels
Benefit: Fewer Interruptions
When using 50”H panels for seated privacy, some issues may arise. The panel height can block light from entering your workspace and provide a natural resting position for co-workers to easily stop and visit when you’re trying to work. Adding Abound® or Accelerate® frameless glass to the panels is a great way to access natural light, while still providing seated-height privacy without unwanted interruption.
Product: 7.5” Frameless Glass
Benefit: Visual Privacy
Utilizing low panels for benching type applications is a great way to provide more privacy and power needs, but inadvertently making eye contact with the person at the station across from you all day can be distracting. Adding the 7.5” frameless glass to Abound or Accelerate can give you that needed visual privacy.
