Here are 5 Different Types of Office Partition

Office partitions are great for several reasons. They help enhance employee privacy by segregating work areas. They offer an easy way to customise workspaces and help you adjust your business space to meet any expansion needs. 

If you are considering office partitions for your workspace, you will need to think about what partition type you want to install. From glass partitions to portable ones, there are multiple options to choose from. So, it is important to consider partitions based on your office space’s design and space requirements.

To help you choose, we have put together a list of the most common types of office partitions:

1. Glass Partitions

Glass partitions come in full and half-height panels. They are a popular choice due to their simplistic design. They are great for reducing noise and allowing light to seep into all areas of the workspaces. 

Glass partitions are available with solid aluminium frames, or with frameless full height glazing for a sleek, smooth finish.

The main benefit of using a glass partition is that they look fantastic in an office environment. However, if a glass partition is not installed correctly, or made using low quality materials they can be damaged. If that is the case you will need emergency office partition repair, then your office will look incredible in no time at all!

2. Floor-To-Ceiling Partitions

Floor-to-ceiling partitions, also known as full-height partitions, are great for breaking up workspaces. They don’t impede visibility in the office but offer employees a certain degree of privacy. In addition, these partitions can easily be reconfigured and moved.

Metal is the most common material used to manufacture floor-to-ceiling partitions, and the frame is covered with cloth. 

3. Cubicles

Cubicles are one of the most simple and common partition types. They can be easily moved from one place to another and feature four walls with an opening for easy access. The fourth wall is half the height of the three cubicle walls, offering a work desk and computer space.

4. Portable Office Partitions

Portable office partitions often have rollers attached to the bottom, making them easy to move around your business space. They are a popular temporary partition solution for businesses. Whilst they only offer minimal privacy, some come with enhanced noise reduction features. 

5. Accordion walls

Accordion walls are a versatile solution to office partitions and are the perfect choice for practical, economic and elegant room divisions. They offer a combination of style, a high level of acoustic integrity, and most importantly, they are incredibly easy to install and move; simply fold the panels out!
