Implementing glass partitions in your office

Implementing glass partitions in your office can present many benefits.

MiGlass are able to supply high-quality glass partitions to liven up your office space and add a little more finesse.

There are many benefits that present themselves with glass partitions, however, there are a few notable benefits that should be drawn to your attention.

They provide natural lighting

When installing commercial partitions of glass, you are maximising the impact and dispersion of natural light, which is particularly the case when the panes of glass are clear. Glass can actually increase the positivity in a work environment because of the welcoming openness.

They are cost efficient

Not only do these glass partitions save on energy, they are also incredibly cost efficient! If there are future plans to expand office spaces, it will be much simpler taking out glass partitions than knocking down brick walls.

They are simple to install and are an effective division solution,

They offer privacy

Glass partitions do provide privacy for offices, whether required for meetings or other general uses. The glass can either be frosted, tinted or coloured and integrated with modern trends. They also lower noise levels, which can be something hard to come by when working in a busy office environment.

Leading glass manufacturers and specialists, MiGlass have a variety of glass products available and other marketing sectors!

Andrew Bartlett, senior team leader says “we have been asked for bonding more and more after we first started producing assemblies in-house more than 10 years ago.  Customers are definitely becoming more sophisticated with their demands and this latest design is typical, involving locks and multiple hinges. We also decorate the cabinets and have recently introduced anti-reflective glass. Following an investment in additional training and equipment MiGlass has more capacity than ever and is often asked to tackle the higher volume display cabinet market as well as more bespoke business.

It is great to work for a company who’s directors have the vision to not only identify and anticipate customer’s needs but also are able to invest appropriately in both people and CAPEX.

MiGlass adopts the “French touch”

2015 has been a busy year for MiGlass with new machinery and processes been added all the time.

The growing UK based specialist glass company is developing and exploring a number of new and existing markets… How?

By partnering up with French University, Jules LESVEN. The company’s new key addition is the arrival of Laura Daviou, 18, a French undergraduate who is taking part in an exchange program.

Laura will initially be spending two months working in the Commercial Department and, specifically, will be responsible for our marketing and new sector development. She is, as you would expect, highly motivated and ready to gain some valuable commercial knowledge and, of course, improve her English.

Her role will also include contacting French speaking prospects to further promote MiGlass’s growing export market.

The company’s future will greatly be helped by Laura’s success in forging new links with overseas markets and prospective UK customers.

Alan Taylor, MiGlass MD, says, “It is a brilliant opportunity to work with an overseas college and further reinforce our European credentials and will be invaluable in the further building of our brand. For Laura, it is her first taste of living and working in the UK and she has performed admirably.
