Types of Office Partitions

Office partitions are seen in offices all over the world, big and small. It would be surprising to find a modern office that doesn’t have at least one partition somewhere these days. They are useful, versatile and inexpensive.

They have a range of uses from creating a simple, single person temporary office setup, to something more elaborate such as a temporary conference room or boardroom.

Office partitions are perfect for any office, owned or rented, as they do not require planning permission and can be erected and dis-assembled with ease and in a relatively short amount of time.

Partitions are available in many different formats such as fixed partitions, movable partitions or demount-able partitions. Whatever your requirement there is an option for every style and function.

Imagine if your company suddenly took on extra staff to accommodate a busy period or a spike in growth – where do these new staff members sit and work from? It could be that a company merger creates new roles and consolidates offices – where do the new staff members go?

Thankfully that’s why office partitions exist and are so popular. New offices or departments can be created quickly and without fuss using office partitions. Whole floors can be divided, and new rooms created using partitions. Partitions also offer a natural level of soundproofing which can be enhanced using sound deadening materials in the walls or ceilings.

 We’ve determined office partitions are useful, but what types are there?
