Meet DG – For Workspaces That Call For Confidentiality

At MetroWall, our aim is to help architects and designers to create workspaces that work. Our range features three different products: Vetro, LP and DG. Each line offers the versatility you require to ensure your perfect design, but with unique features to help you meet your business needs. This month we’re shining a spotlight on DG – the perfect partition for when privacy is paramount.

This is DG

The trend for airy, open plan workspaces is here to stay – after all, few people work at their best in a small, strip-lit cubicle – but space and light can mean a compromise on privacy.

Until now.

DG is lab tested to provide the best possible acoustic performance (with sound ratings up to 48 STC) and features numerous aesthetic and functional options including:

  • Single or double glazed
  • Vertical or horizontal mullions
  • A choice of finishes.

Check out our latest spotlight video to learn more.

MetroWall proud market leaders in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions

As well as the finest products, we also offer the fastest lead times in NY state. This is just one of the things that has helped us to become the market leader for glass partitions in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions.

How MetroWall is staying a step ahead of the supply chain shortage

From household goods and electronics to raw materials, the global supply chain shortage is ongoing and affecting just about every industry. At MetroWall, we worked to combat these issues before they even began. Disruptions started around the time the Covid pandemic emerged but challenges to the construction and building industry are taking considerably longer than expected to normalize – but why? And how do MetroWall’s manufacturing processes address the issue?

What is the global supply chain?

The global supply chain is an invisible pathway that takes goods from where they’re manufactured or grown, to where they need to go. From raw material to end user. The supply  chain regularly crosses not just borders but oceans too.

Why has it been affected

Disruptions to the supply chain began in early 2020. Factories and manufacturing plants were hit hard by Covid 19. Many were shut down and others were forced to work at drastically reduced capacity.

It’s not simply a matter of “ah, Covid”, though. In response to an anticipated drop in sales during the early days of the pandemic, shipping companies greatly reduced their scheduling but customers didn’t stop spending, they just spent their money elsewhere. So, while spending at restaurants and movie theatres fell, spending in areas like home renovations and Covid-secure workspaces skyrocketed. Building companies responded to this by ordering in bulk.

The steep surge in demand combined with fewer ships to transport goods, clogged the system. Combine this with labor issues and a shortage of shipping containers and you’ve got yourself a perfect storm.

When will the shortages end?

The answer to this isn’t entirely clear (we can now add severe weather events like Hurricane Ida and foreign political upheavals like Brexit to the mix), but it seems likely that these issues will continue well into 2022. 

How are MetroWall circumventing the issue?

It could be argued that such an issue was inevitable – many companies have purposely been keeping lean inventories to limit costs for years but at Metrowall, we do things a little differently. We’ve always believed in holding large quantities of inventory in stock. In the past, this has allowed us to have the fastest lead times in New York and right now, it allows us to buck the trend of delays and shortages and deliver on our 3-4 week lead time promise.

Many companies source materials internationally to save on costs but at MetroWall, we’ve always sourced locally. Not only does this give us greater control and flexibility, it’s also good for the community and helps the environment by reducing shipping and storage. It’s also given us the chance to build strong connections and strategic agreements with our vendors to allow for uninterrupted supply. And, right now, it’s helping us sidestep industry-wide issues caused by heavy reliance on the shipping industry.

At MetroWall, we’re a one-stop shop. We control the entire process (manufacturing through install), we do our own deliveries so we’re not affected by shipping bottlenecks or vehicle shortages and we always have and always will forecast our inventory against demand.

Supply Chain shortage or no, at MetroWall we’re sticking fast to our 3-4 week lead time.

Five Reasons a MetroWall Glass Partition is a Sustainable Choice

Sustainability is becoming more important by the day. With climate change high on the agenda, many of us in the construction industry are thinking of ways we can build and design spaces that don’t just do good for the occupants but do good for the planet too.

When it comes to an interior redesign there are a number of factors to consider, one of which is the material to use for partitions and walls. Fabric and drywall are construction industry stalwarts but is there a superior choice available? We say, yes.

Glass Partitions are a worthier choice for several reasons. Not only can glass maximize the use of space, increase productivity and boost staff well-being, it can also make for a greener build.

Want to know why? Here, we’ve put together our…

Top five reasons a MetroWall glass partition is a sustainable choice for a workspace:

1. Glass is recyclable

Glass is one of the most sustainable materials around. It’s fully recyclable and can be used over and over again without a drop in quality.

2. Glass production creates less waste

The amount of waste produced during the manufacture of glass is low and most of the waste can be collected, remelted and used to produce new glass.

3. Glass can reduce energy consumption

Glass facilitates the flow of natural light, which doesn’t just contribute to increased staff wellbeing but also saves on the amount of energy used.

4. MetroWall glass is locally manufactured

We probably *could* reach out to Europe or China for our glass manufacturer but we don’t. We use local manufacturers to ensure our carbon footprint is kept to a minimum and our lead times are rapid.

5. MetroWall partitions can be used again

Our glass partition and wall ranges allow for hundreds of different configurations. So, if you’re looking to change your office space and you have MetroWall partitions in place, you can demount and recreate the right office environment for your changing needs.

Want to make sure your office redesign fits with your green credentials?

At MetroWall, we exist to make your life simpler. We offer the complete package for your office fit out: from design to installation, we’ll be with you every step of the way. We have decades of experience in the industry yet we keep on top of every advance and innovation through our dedicated R&D investments. We also work to a three-week lead time, which is the quickest in the industry.

Glass Solutions for Architectural Design

Offices from the dim and distant past were dark and cavernous spaces. No longer.

These days glass partitions are designed to seamlessly integrate with the most ambitious architectural designs to create inspiring interiors.

At Metrowall we work with some of New York’s most innovative architects to bring clients’ visions to life – glass solutions for the most beautiful, functional spaces.

And while glass partitions are a familiar sight in commercial office interiors, we’re seeing them increasingly commissioned for condos and lofts, hotels and more – an incredible way to create distinct areas without losing that feeling of true space.

Engineered and Tested

But we’re not just focused on the aesthetics – important though they are – our glass partitions and doors are expertly engineered and tested to the nth degree, so you can be assured of a top-quality product.

From experience, we expect and welcome a wealth of questions when specifying glass partitions. That’s why we have specialist technicians on-hand to provide comprehensive answers and offer their professional advice, so you can choose the perfect product for your specific needs.

And with years of experience and knowledge to their credit, our sales teams and installers are vigilant for potential problems, so that we can head them off at the pass. Our expertise isn’t just invaluable, it all comes as part of the end-to-end MetroWall service.

Carefully designed and installed by dedicated teams, we’re all about a fuss free service and impeccable outcomes.

Rapid Lead-Times

We also help minimize disruption and support project efficiency by delivering a comprehensive service that happens mainly off-site. With production occurring elsewhere, you’ll only see us when we appear to measure and then deliver and install the finished product in double-quick time.

Of course, that’s only if you’re a MetroWall customer, because our lead times are the best in the business. Just three weeks from ordering to installation to transform office spaces and workplace ambiance.

Vetro – Your Perfect Partner

While our glass partitions are a familiar sight in New York’s new-builds and modern office blocks – whatever space you’re working with, we can help you to bring your vision to fruition. It’s amazing what you can achieve with an expert approach and thoughtfully designed products.

MetroWall’s Vetro product, for example, integrates beautifully with standard construction methods. With robust leveling tolerances and simple building integration, Vetro eliminates issues caused by imperfect building conditions. So, if an office design is throwing up some extra challenges, never fear – Vetro Is here.

So, when it comes to glass partitioning, there’s only one name you need to know. MetroWall.
