The Benefits of Using Screens Instead of Walls in Your Sydney Office Fit-Out

The open plan office is extremely common these days.

However, extensive research has proven that open plan offices come with many downsides for your employees and your business as a whole.

Therefore, it’s important that you strike some kind of balance, whereby you can have the benefits of an open plan office without the negatives.

This is where screens and partitions are so handy.

At Niche Projects, we have a wealth of knowledge in installing and designing for partitions in all kinds of Sydney offices.

We understand how they can best be used in your space, as well as the benefits that they can provide in place of walls!

Here are just a few of those benefits.


Placing opaque walls throughout your office will obviously create issues with visibility for your workers and management.

Visibility is important in Sydney office design. Managers need to be able to see their workers; teams might need to be able to see each other…

Poor visibility can therefore impact productivity, happiness and communication between your people.

One way to combat this is by using glass partitions instead of walls. That’ll allow staff and management to have a direct eyeline.

In turn, that can help keep everyone happy and on track.

Light and Airflow

Glass partitions are obviously far better when it comes to encouraging the flow of natural light through your Sydney office fit-out.

This increased exposure to natural light will have many benefits, including happier workers and better mental and physical health.

It’ll also make your office far more appealing… no one likes a dark, dingy space.

As well as this, partitions and screens can aid better airflow in your office, particularly if you use screens that are able to be shifted easily.


Screens and partitions are a cost-effective solution for every kind of Sydney office fit-out. And at Niche Projects, we’ll ensure you’re getting the best deal possible.

When you save money by utilising partitions and screens instead of solid walls, you’re able to put that into other avenues of your business.
