Recently, all-glass partitions without the use of profile systems are very often used in the design of many internal public spaces. This is facilitated by a stylish look, structural strength and a large area of glazing. They are usually used for the ergonomic division of working office space into functional areas.
Such partitions are installed in shopping and he alth centers, offices, entertainment centers, private interiors. In addition, glass sections can form separate offices, showcases and meeting rooms. Frameless glass partitions can also act as an independent piece of furniture. They go great with many types of doors.
All-glass partitions are a collapsible frameless design, which consists of durable glass sheets and a clamping metal profile.Some devices allow the use of point fittings as a mounting system. Partition wall anchors are installed into walls, floors and ceilings, making the frameless system look like a solid surface.
Glass sections are butted against each other, with a gap between them (approximately 2 mm). Glass in such systems is used with a thickness of 8-12 mm (tempered or triplex). It can be tinted, matte or colored. As a decorative design, various glass surface finishing techniques are used. These include: sandblasting, artistic painting, engraving, stained glass inserts, photo printing, airbrushing. The properties of tempered glass or triplex ensure the safe operation of the structure. It is not recommended to build a glass partition with a height of more than three meters.
