Here is an overview of some of the different types of office partitions and dividers, and the particular benefits each style offers to companies:
- Freestanding acoustic partitions: These can easily be installed across a workplace, and they help companies with effective noise control, by ensuring noises are contained to particular areas. This is achieved in two distinctive ways; firstly, it means that staff outside of the areas separated through acoustic partitions will not be distracted by their conversations, and secondly, it also helps the people within the acoustic partitioning to have clearer, more audible conversations, as they will not be distracted by outside noise.
- Desk dividers: These act as a physical barrier that separates office booths, thus providing staff with a sense of privacy and personal space, allowing them to focus on their work without distractions. They are also effective at controlling noises, ensuring that staff can work to the best of their ability.
- Perspex partitions: What is unique about this type of partitioning is that it is see-through, meaning that staff can still view each other and their customers, while still providing them with a noise controlling, physical barrier. With the COVID pandemic still impacting companies across Australia, perspex partitions offer businesses a safe, easy to install solution that works at dividing offices, promoting social distancing, and maximising productivity, whilst ensuring that the aesthetics of the workplace are not compromised.
