Office partitions are elements that allow create partitions in open or diaphanous spaces without the need to erect walls. The demand for this type of interior cabinets has grown in parallel with this type of cabinet.

The main function of these dividing screens is obtain certain privacy conditions in open spaces. These needs can be variable. From the total separation of a part of the office to hold meetings, to the use of screens so that workers have their own space and also avoid distractions.

Its use is by no means limited to offices, although they are often called that. We can find them in hotels, health centers, schools, fairs and even in some houses as an element of separation of environments.

Features of partition screens

Cost reduction. They are faster to install than the main alternative, partitioning. This allows you to incur less personnel costs. The materials used are less, cheaper and allow to obtain the same or better benefits.

It’s about modular buildings that can be taken apart and taken to another place. The costs associated with adapting to your new location will always be much lower than other alternatives and even zero. In addition, if there is a need for change, it is also possible to modify the distribution. For example, using screens in a larger office after merging two spaces.

Better use of natural light, provided it is a transparent or mixed partition.

A feeling of openness towards the customer. The perception of customers is that of an open and transparent place, and not of a place where things are hidden. A clear example of commitment to this feeling can be found in bank branches, where even the director’s office can be seen completely behind the glass.

Wide variety of designs. In the case of blind or mixed partitions where melamine slabs are used, the design possibilities are as many as slab designs, and there are many. For glass partitions, the use of vinyls also offers many options.

Soundproofing or sound insulation. The wood used to make office partitions is naturally an insulating material. However, when extra privacy is required, double glazing, laminated glass or double wooden panels are often used with some insulating material between them, such as fiberglass.

Available in Kit. They are mechanics with assembly instructions for those looking for the cheapest and fastest solution.

Types of office partitions

Blind screens

blind partitions

They are those office partitions or partitions that completely hide the contents of the view. They are used to isolate the space and keep it private. They are usually made with melamine plates, although they can also be found in other materials.

Mixed screens

mixed office divisions

They are those office partitions that combine transparent elements, that is, glass, with others that are not. Most of the time, they are half-height windows.

Transparent Screens

glass partitions for offices

They are those made entirely of glass and that allow the view to reach the interior. This type of glass partition for offices has a slightly higher price, although on the other hand it brings more class and style to the space.

They are used in work areas that must be kept completely open. With them, the necessary privacy for the worker is achieved with the lightest and most flexible structure. Depending on the material, benefits such as sound absorption can be achieved.

Maintenance and cleaning

The materials most used for making office partitions, as we have already mentioned, are glass and melamine-coated wooden boards. In both cases, these are surfaces that do not require the renewal of finishes and which, if not subjected to uses or situations not recommended, will last for many years.

As for daily cleaning, just wipe with a dust cloth and, in the case of window cleaner, use window cleaner.

This is another added advantage, since cleaning, for example, a stain on a painted wall, will always be more complicated than cleaning non-porous surfaces such as glass or melamine.
