With a low profile contemporary design, our double glazed partition systems have excellent aesthetics coupled with unrivalled acoustic ratings.
The DG01 is a high strength lightweight design. At 66mm it is our smallest double glazed profile offering a minimalist look coupled with optimum strength and acoustics. Working with toughened and laminated glass it offers very good acoustic properties and can be finished in Satin Aluminium, Brushed Stainless Steel effect or any RAL colour.
The DG02 2 part deflection head can be combined with the DG01 system to cater for installations where increased movement to the ceiling is needed.
The DG03 is a high strength design with a 100mm depth offering outstanding acoustic ratings. Working with toughened and laminated glass it has unrivalled acoustic properties, similar to blockwork partitions and can be finished in any RAL colour.
All of our double glazed partitioning systems are designed to work with 10mm and 12mm toughened safety glass which offer good acoustic performances. We also offer 10.8mm and 12.8mm laminated glass for an improved acoustic rating. You can also combine a mix of toughened and laminated glass screens enabling you to meet various noise restriction requirements whilst keeping the aesthetics consistent and not adding cost where it’s not necessary.
Inter Panel Glazing Joints
Glass offices and partition screens can truly appear frameless with the latest technology of dry joint inserts. These have a far better appearance than silicone joints and enable the system to be dismantled or reconfigured with minimal disturbance. Installation time is also improved which benefits cost. All of our double glazed systems can be installed using dry joint technology or silicone joints, both inline and at corners preventing the need for a corner profile. Georgian bar systems work in line with the glass panels so you do not see the glazing joints. The maximum width of the glass panels depends on the height and overall size of the office, coupled with access to the building/floor.
In addition to providing the basics, such as the construction of glazed offices, walls and floors we also provide manifestation to the glass panels. When it comes to building regulation, glass offices and partitions must meet the minimum health and safety standards. Whilst it would be nice to see a long run of perfectly clear glazing, the invisibility of glass in a commercial environment poses a safety risk to visitors and staff. The minimum DDA requirement for commercial glazing is 2 levels of manifestation between 850-1000mm and 1400-1600mm from the floor. This can be in the form of a simple band of frosted dots or squares applied to one face of the glass or it can be in the form of logos or a decorative pattern. Nowadays the use of dots and squares is limited to short term and public areas with highly creative and individual designs of manifestation being used in most situations. The option of a Georgian bar system negates the need for manifestation given you are not too minimalist in your design of squares.
We are happy to quote for any design of manifestation needed, from the very simple to the complex. When we leave site we apply diagonal strips of low tack white tape to the glass to cover any health & safety risk in the short term.
