Let there be light! Glass doors in the workplace

Wednesday 24th April, 2019

With spring in full bloom bringing blue skies and sunshine, it is perhaps understandable that we may sigh a little when closing the office door to begin another working day. But closing the office door does not have to mean shutting out the sun; not with stylish glass doors from Tufwell Glass.

Glass doors are typically made from toughened glass – a type of safety glass that is physically and thermally stronger than regular glass. In some cases, laminated glass is used. Laminated glass has the same strength as ordinary glass and gains its safety attributes from its double-layered design. Strength and safety are important features, but glass doors have much more to offer your workplace.

Increased productivity

Research has found that workers with natural daylight in their office environment report drops in the incidences of eyestrain, headaches and drowsiness. Glass doors allow optimal amounts of natural light to pass through a space, creating a healthier, more productive workspace.

Worried about your workspace becoming too hot and bright for your employees? Don’t be. Tinted glass doors will reduce the heat and glare of sunlight, helping to keep your workspace at an ambient temperature and protecting your office furnishings from UV damage.


Glass doors are durable. Glass does not peel, rust or corrode. Glass doors are resistant to humidity and moisture and can withstand extreme weather conditions. By letting in more natural light, glass doors can reduce heating and lighting bills, with potential savings increased further still when smart glass is used. Smart glass, or liquid crystal glass (LCD) allows you to switch between transparency and translucency at the flick of a switch. Glass doors are easy to install, keeping disruption to your business to the absolute minimum.

Business edge

Glass doors add a stylish and modern look to your workplace and one that is sure to create the right first impression for your clients. Glass doors have an intrinsic, naturally beautiful look but also offer versatility. Glass doors can be customised to suit your company brand through the inclusion of patterns, text or logos. Painted glass is accessible and affordable and can add a real sense of individuality to your business.

Without doubt, glass doors will enhance your workplace, but the use of glass in your office doesn’t have to stop there. Glass partitions offer a simple and cost-effective way to transform your office, allowing you to make better use of your space which can be easily adapted as your business needs change.
