To the untrained eye, single glazed and double glazed glass partitioning can look similar. In fact, several properties of both glass office partitions make them vastly different.
Whilst both office partitions are perfect for dividing modern work spaces, it’s important to understand the benefits each glazing option has to offer. Then, you can determine the best product to refresh your workplace.
The difference between single and double glazed glass partitioning is how they’re manufactured. Double glazed glass walls are two glass panes (hence the name, double glazed). With single glazed glass walls, there is just one glass pane (single glazed).
The extra glass pane has little to no visible change. When it comes to performance however, the story is quite different.
Single glazed glass partitions are walls made from singular sheets of toughened safety glass. Whilst this is the thinnest glazed option we offer, this type of glass is still strong. These fix into glass partitioning tracks that run around the perimeter of your space.
Single glazed glass walls have a frameless appearance, created from the seamless joining between glass panes. It’s contemporary and sleek, a popular partitioning solution across many different industries.
To go with your single glazed glass office, you’ll likely need a door. Single glazed glass doors are similar to the partitioning – they’re also made from a singular glazed pane. During installation, our glass experts will ensure that your glass door sits flush with the rest of your glazed walls.
Double glazed glass partitions are walls made from two sheets of toughened safety glass. The double glazed glass panes provide better insulation and acoustics than our single glazed systems. For this reason, it’s often a step up in price (but also a step up in performance).
The office glass partitions are installed similarly to their single glazed alternatives. First, our team fit glass partitioning tracks around the perimeter of your premises and then install the pre-bonded glass panes.

Double glazed glass doors consist of two glass panels, encased in an aluminium border. Whilst your glass office can never truly be ‘soundproof’ (doors open and close and sound can escape, plus there are many other factors to consider), framing your double glazed glass doors can help to reduce noise that might escape through the seals.
