Office Fitout Partitions


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

There are a number of things to consider when deciding on the best office partitioning system for your space. These include:

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

Most fitouts use a combination of available partition types. See below for details of the different office partition walls available.


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 acoustics are important, these office partitions can be installed with noise blocking insulation. We recommend installing solid office partitions in between offices 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, they are aesthetically pleasing and create a professional look and feel to your office. Glass office partitions also create a private space when used with frosted or coloured glass. We recommend installing glass office partitions in the front of offices.


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  suit your requirements. 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 to full length 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 for different purposes, by moving the foldable panels to either close or open up the space.

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

Although they are the most expensive partition system, operable walls provide maximum 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 installed in another location. They reduce the mess and disruption of traditional construction, and can be reused when the layout changes. Demountable walls 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 partition systems and they are not as aesthetically pleasing.
