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.
