Maintaining a well-designed open working environment with privacy in mind

Very few employees would prefer working in a totally open or in a totally private work environment. In fact, according to a 2019 workplace study, 77% of people consider an environment that falls in between the two to be an ideal office space. 

But how can employers and office designers achieve this?

Decorative glass partitions can be the answer: as well as adding visual interest and creating a professional atmosphere, glass partitions deliver ample office boundaries, whilst effectively maintaining maximum light distribution and an effect of openness in the workspace.

Designed as an application for interior glass partitions or the inside surface of windows and doors, Solyx® Decorative Window Film is an ideal choice for any space that requires decorative privacy such as conference rooms, lobbies, private offices and more. With a vast range of textures and designs, Solyx® can be installed at a fraction of the cost of alternative laminated panels, patterned or sand-blasted glass. 

Protective Film Solutions offer over 300 options – including coloured films, exterior films, frosted films, gradient films, patterned films, speciality films and stained-glass films – making it one of the most comprehensive selections of high-quality glass solutions.

Open environments are linked to greater business performance and innovation, however at times this layout can be restrictive and pose unsolvable issues with privacy. Delivering visual privacy, whilst maintaining an open, collaborative environment, can be easily achieved without replacing the partitions or putting in walls.

The solution is simple but incredibly effective: glass film. Glass itself is an effective tool because it creates a special boundary between workers and rooms without isolating the workers behind it. And by adding a decorative film to the glass partition, employers can allow not only benefit from added levels of privacy, but also from the visual interest which creates an enjoyable and effective working environment.

As well as the use of decorative film for privacy, expert technology-based films can prove a vital tool in protecting digital data. Designers and employers can ensure digital privacy without losing the open plan feel of an office through the application of Casper™ Cloaking Technology by Designtex - an innovative cloak technology that provides a smart shield to protect the digital data displayed on screen digital screens without obscuring the glass.

The film blocks only the light transmitted by digital screens to outside view meaning the room remains open to view but only those inside can see the content being displayed on screen. This state-of-the-art technology is already being used by large corporations across the pond and is just one of the many innovative ways glass film can transform the functionality of the shared office space.
