Glass Partition Walls offer an advantage with which drywall simply cannot compete. Co-worker connectivity. Said in word. “Collaboration”.
The additional advantages of incorporating glass panel walls into an office floor plan, are in-part responsible for their rapidly increasing popularity with office interior designers. Increased affordability is another. A glass alternative to drywall will never go out of style and will provide a modern look that will convey a unique office aesthetic, much the same as you would want for your reception area.
To be sure one disadvantage to Glass Wall Systems is their higher initial cost when compared to drywall. Glass as a material is costlier to produce than is the calcium sulfate dehydrate (a/k/a drywall or sheetrock).
However, the scalability of a movable wall system also adds to the advantage and value of these types of office wall options. The bottom line: Glass is better but initially costlier. So the question is; will the added upfront expenditure be worth the added flexibility and visibility offered by glass? One step to be taken in finding the answer is to understand your product options.
