acoustical glass doorsOffice design and décor are constantly changing, and it is up to a business to stay current. Outdated styles can immediately make a bad impression for a business trying to retain talent and communicate success to clients. Sometimes small changes can make all the difference in interior office design. Putting in acoustical glass doors is an excellent way to instantly modernize the look and feel of commercial space.

Glass is a material that is always in fashion, easy to maintain and has an appearance of quality. Sliding doors with acoustical glass can add a new and interesting element to a workplace. In addition to superior design, acoustical sliding doors offer a variety of other benefits.

Increased privacy

In any place of business, privacy is important. This is true for everyone: customers, employees, and visitors. However, the difficult part is figuring out how to ensure people can have it.

In most offices, there is a lot of activity. People come in and out and open and close doors. The likelihood of a private conversation being overheard is high. This is where acoustical glass doors can be a huge asset.

Sliding doors tend to have quieter operation, especially those outfitted with soft closers like OfficeSlide™​ by AD Systems. Beyond reducing noisy operation, OfficeSlide™ was designed to provide much better levels of speech privacy than a typical slider. This means that meetings, phone calls, and other communications will remain private.

Improved productivity

Since acoustical sliding doors isolate different spaces, it also helps to improve worker productivity and minimize distraction. This is particularly important in contemporary office design which often features an open plan environment and collaboration spaces. It is important people in meeting spaces can speak freely without intruding on the open work environment and that their conversations are also protected by acoustical isolation.

Another key element of glass doors is that they allow more sunlight to filter through the entire floor. Natural light helps employees increase productivity. It is much more enjoyable to work with the sun shining in instead of under harsh fluorescent lights.

Better space management

An often overlooked feature of sliding doors is their space-saving abilities. Swinging doors take up quite a bit of space. When doors open inward, accommodations are necessary. Anything stored behind the door risks the threat of damage. When swinging doors open outward into a hallway, they are just as intrusive. They can hurt the flow of traffic or cause a tripping hazard.

This is why sliding doors are increasing in popularity. They do not interfere with the floor space of a room. Sliding doors allow for the utilization of nearly all of the square footage. Best of all, there are no tripping issue as the doors hang from an overhead track.
