The industrial style glass and window look has been making a return recently and has become very popular not only on external windows and doors but also to internal black frame partitions and screens. The black grid framing (also known as banded glazing) used on glass partitioning adds a factory style look to any space without losing its' clean, modern appearance. It's also great for smaller, closed rooms and offices as light and space can still flow between areas.
In this guide, we will look at how and where you can use the industrial style glass framing or banded glazing in internal partition or screens both in homes and commercial spaces. We will also look at the different types of partitions available in this style and how these can affect your budget.
How and where to use industrial style glass partitioning
Industrial glass framing "look" is linked to architectural styles from the start of the 20th Century, such as Art Deco. In partitioning, it can also be compared to the Japanese Shōji style walls (built using a grid of light timber frames with translucent paper material). However, as can be seen with recent trends, this decorative grid-style partitioning is versatile enough to work in most modern spaces and buildings.
There are many ways industrial style glass screens can be used and how it can play an active role in your space, for example by:
Creating subtle divisions without it feeling cramped
Allowing more light and space to flow between areas
Using the decorative grid to enhance your interior design
Creating a private, quiet area when acoustic glass or double glazing is used to reduce noise levels
Giving your space an industrial, stylish modern look
Creating a sense of openness, ideal for small spaces
Other benefits are:
Industrial style glass partitioning can be easy to install, taken down and moved (ensure you use an experienced, reputable glass installation company)
High ceilings are not usually an issue
The crossbars and grid pattern can be changed
There are various styles, materials and colours available (black or dark grey are the most popular colours)
These glass framing style walls are quite versatile, and there are many applications and places where it can be used, such as:
*Shower screens, wet rooms and bathrooms
*Mirrors by face fixing the bars
*Subtle divides between walkways, hallways and other rooms
*Open-plan kitchens to avoid smells in other places
*Lounges, game rooms and TV rooms, so the sound does not travel to other parts of the house
Black steel framing and glass work well in areas with exposed brick, concrete, stone, timber, painted walls and more. Thus, the system works well in homes, offices, shops, restaurants and cafes.
