Partition walls are there to separate spaces in a large area. They come in handy when people are looking for more privacy, better acoustic and flexibility of their layout. There are many different variations – some that work best for retail fit-out and others that will do their best in offices.
In today’s blog, we are going to share a few of the more popular partitions available on the market along with their advantages. Hopefully, you will walk away from this with a deeper understanding and a clear idea of what option works best for you.
What are the types of partition wall?
A standard demountable partition wall will be used in an office space, hotels, showrooms, retail spaces, and residential areas. These structures will be a bit more solid but still can not bear any weight. It is because of this, that these walls are beloved by many. You will have complete control of the design and layout of your space without having to permanently change anything.
You will often find these standard partition walls paired with suspended ceilings to create the desired atmosphere. These walls can also have windows and doors on them.
Glazed partitions are a modern take on the standard partition. This option works well for offices, sale rooms and any other time you would like to impress, especially when paired with a suspended ceiling. The glass allows the space to feel more open and airy – never stuffy.
With glazed partitioning, you have the opportunity to truly make it your own. You can decorate with blinds or curtains for the times you need a little bit of privacy. You can also get your company logo printed onto the side,
