Partitions

Partitions are a versatile part of any office; they can be used to add privacy, create a mood and be used to optimise the space and layout in your office.

There are a number of aspects you should consider before you decide on the type of office partitioning system that best suits your needs. These are:

  • Level of privacy required
  • Acoustic needs
  • Fire-proofing needs
  • Security requirements
  • Type of business you are operating
  • Existing natural light
  • Aesthetic appeal
  • Budget

Most fit outs end up using a combination of the available partition types. See below for details of the different office partition walls available for your fitout.

 

Solid Wall Plaster Office Partitions

Also known as Type A partitions

Similar to the walls in your house, these office partitions are 90mm wide, can be finished with aluminium or masonite skirting and painted in any colour of your choice. If sound acoustics is important, these office partitions can be installed with noise block insulation. We recommend installing solid office partitions in between office with a glass partition and MDF door to the front.

Glass Office Partitions

Also known as multi-glazed partitions

Glass partitions maximise any natural light that enters the room, are aesthetically pleasing and create a professional look and feel to your office. Glass office partitions can also be successful in creating a private space when used with frosted or coloured glass. We recommend installing glass office partitions to the front of the office for your fitout.

 
 

Part Plaster, Part Glass Office Partitions

Also known as type C partitions

Generally the configuration for these types of partitions is 1m plaster with 1.7m glass above however we can customise this to your needs. Part plaster, part glass partitions let in plenty of natural light but also provide privacy to your office space. Part plaster, part glass partitions are an alternative option of all glass partitions and are often used in factory settings where offices open into a warehouse space.

Operable Wall

Also known as folding walls or portable partitions

Operable walls give you the flexibility to adapt your space to the required purpose by moving the foldable panels to either close or open up the space.

These are custom built to suit your needs and requirements and can be constructed from a range of different materials including fabric, timber and glass with the option of a door opening.

These are the most expensive partition system, however, operable walls have the added benefit of flexibility in the workplace and are often used in training rooms, conference rooms, schools and sporting facilities.

 
 

Demountable Partitions

Also known as Movable walls

Demountable walls can be detached from their ceiling and floor tracks and reinstalled to another location. They reduce the mess and disruption of traditional construction while remaining reusable and reconfigurable for future changes to your work environment. They are well suited for temporary offices or spaces that will only be used for a short time.

The disadvantages of demountable partitions are that their acoustic properties are not as good as other partitions systems and also they are not as aesthetically pleasing.
