Ideal if a business is in the early stages of their
growth, the use of partitions/partitioning are incredibly practical and cost effective when compared to building permanent walls. In recent years the style and design of a partition has been developed far beyond carbon fibre boards. Contemporary office partitions can now be installed in a very quick manner, whilst their robust design means they are able to last for many years. Modern partitions are available in a range of different types; from curved glass partitions to floor-to-ceiling solid partitions. Selecting the right style partition depends on several contributing factors such as the importance of exits and entrances in the layout of the office space, as well as its flow and functionality.
