  • Portable Partition Wall Creates Quick Museum Exhibition Space

    Customer Testimonials
    As organizations grow, sometimes the size of their programs surpasses the size of their physical space. During these transitional periods, before a new space is added, rooms must take on alter egos. For example, a meeting room might double as classroom or work space. In the case of the Cultural Preservation Department for the Eastern Shawnee Tribe of Oklahoma, an event room needed to serve double-duty for the organization's museum space. Since the tribe doesn't yet have access to its own building for the museum space, the Cultural Preservation Department opted to share a large portion of its multi-purpose room for the museum exhibit. Since the space often featured events, it was necessary to find a portable room divider that could accommodate a changing room space. A temporary wall would help create a private area for the museum while being portable and compact enough to relocate or readjust the museum space if necessary. Enter Versare’s Room Divider 360, our most popular portable partition wall. With this folding divider, the organization was able to quickly create a portable wall that complements the colors in the event room and allows the event area to flow beautifully into the museum space. The large 25' width was chosen to provide ample coverage, while sound-dampening acoustical fabric panels provide a quiet and more private feel to the museum area. Now guests can comfortably and privately absorb artifacts from the rich history of the Shawnee people, even if the other part of the large space is being occupied. The Room Divider 360 “completely changes the flow of the room," says Kenny Glass of the Shawnee Tribe. "It was difficult to set up the museum when I would have to constantly move things for events. The portable wall has closed off the museum section a great deal, and I’m very happy with the outcome!” Further reading: https://www.estoo-nsn.gov/

  • Build a Work Fort and Create Instant Workstation Privacy

    Product Information
    The rise of tech startups in the early 2000s brought with it the rise of the open-concept office in the United States. According to Fortune Magazine, the plan was originally a 1950s German design that Americans were slow to adopt. Open offices are intended to cultivate an environment of cooperation and creativity, with ideas flowing freely and no walls to block them. Soon, the concept spread from startups to larger, corporate environments. A desktop privacy panel subtly conceals a workstation But with open offices come unique obstacles. While an open workstation layout is great for fostering teamwork for group projects and brainstorming sessions, employees focus at least half of their time on individual work. These offices can be full of distractions. With no auditory barriers, an open office environment can be noisier than traditional offices. And some employees find the lack of visual barrier to be distracting and detract from privacy - who hasn't been a little protective of their work space from wandering coworker's eyes? As open office spaces become more prevalent, so does the desire for workstation privacy. Work Forts allow you to create privacy while maintaining an open flow Versare offers a solution to distracted office workers: Work Forts. With these customizable desktop privacy partitions, employees can build a series of privacy panels to enclose or divide work spaces without impeding the open-office flow. With the two included brackets per Work Fort, each privacy panel can attach to a tabletop or desktop between 3/4" and 2” thick without the use of permanent hardware or damage to the surface. They can be easily attached—or detached—quickly, allowing work spaces to be altered to fit teams or projects of varying sizes. Enclose yourself affordably with these sound-dampening privacy panels Available in 3 shapes and over 20 acoustical fabric options, Work Forts provide a truly customizable way to provide workstation privacy or divide desk space. Work Forts provide high-quality noise reduction without impairing visibility, thus preserving the collaborative environment.

  • Divide Library Space Easily for Community Events

    Customer Testimonials
    We know that libraries are a place to find books, movies, music, and a free internet connection, and that they’re places that require silence (cue the classic shushing librarian trope). But libraries are also often community event centers, offering activities and classes for people of all ages. Tamarack District Library in Lakeview, Mi holds some of its classes in its basement area, which is also used as a study area. The basement at Tamarack District Library is an open but small space, with dimensions that are difficult to fit. To solve this problem, the public library came to Versare seeking a room divider that was easy to open and to stow away when not in use. Tamarack also wanted the divider to be aesthetically pleasing and complement the décor that was already in the basement area. With the help of Versare's Design Consultants, Tamarack opted for the StraightWall Sliding Room Divider with woodgrain laminate panels. Because of the Straight Wall’s telescoping feature, the user can customize its length and cover specific lengths. The StraightWall also smoothly collapses down to one panel for simple storage. One of the five color options in the laminate material (though the StraightWall also comes in fabric and polycarbonate), Natural Cherry Woodgrain went flawlessly with the rest of the library basement’s interior. Now the library has a more versatile basement that can be used as an open space or divided, all without sacrificing aesthetics. Tamarack has been extremely satisfied with their new library divider and Versare’s customer service. "Thank you so much for taking the time to work with us to find the perfect divider to fit our needs - the Cherry Laminate was a great choice and fit our decor perfectly.”

  • Restaurant Sound Panels Provide Affordable Acoustic Control

    Customer Testimonials
    Seven Mile Cafe provides a unique experience for coffee fans and brunch seekers in Denton, TX. The cafe's large menu, specialty coffees, and eccentric decor attracts a variety of clientele in the quiet college town. With several locations opening up in the North Texas area, the funky cafe has become a certified hit. Built within a converted house, the small restaurant features an open floor plan with high ceilings. While the close quarters provides a cozy atmosphere for customers, it presents an acoustical challenge when combined with the bustling kitchen only feet away from the dining area. Espresso machines and coffee grinders can also cause excess noise throughout the space, thus raising overall conversation levels and inhibiting the ambience. Seven Mile opted to strategically place several Versare Sound Stones throughout the small restaurant space. When placed by tables, these wall-mounted sound panels nullify noise and eliminate excess echo, helping to keep conversations closed-off. A variety of shapes allowed the sound panels to accommodate the layered wall design, with 4' x 1' panels able to squeeze in by door and window spaces. Conversation levels and excess room noise can now be better controlled with the sound panels, improving restaurant ambience and patron satisfaction. Available in over twenty fabric colors, these acoustical panels can integrate effectively within any cafe or restaurant. Unlike toxic fiberglass foam panels on the market these USA-made sound panels feature a premium nonwoven polyester construction rated at 0.65 NRC (Noise Reduction Coefficient). Keep your customers coming back by providing effective acoustical control to your restaurant.

  • Portable Partitions Provide a Picture Perfect Solution for Photography Studio

    Customer Testimonials
    The J. Paul Getty Museum at the Getty Villa in Malibu houses art and artifacts from ancient Greece, Rome, and Etruria. Part of the institution’s mission is to “enhance understanding of art through innovative digitally driven research, shared for the benefit of the widest possible audience.” To meet this goal, the photography arm of the museum needed to partition off its large photography studio into two smaller, more flexible studios that could adapt to the subject being photographed. Tahnee Cracchiola, lead photographer at the Villa Imaging Studios came to Versare for a solution. Cracchiola shoots photographs of architecture and nature along the grounds of the Villa, but she also takes extensive photos of the works housed at the museum. Her studio needs to accommodate pieces of all sizes, from sculptures and mosaics to urns and jewelry. It also needs to offer light control so that the photographs are uniform and of high quality. A portable partition wall would provide the studio an ideal solution for dividing up the large area. Ultimately, Cracchiola chose the Quick-Wall (Folding) Portable Partition in black, a color that would absorb light rather than reflecting (something best left to angled reflectors and other photography equipment. With this folding studio partition, she can divide her studio space into two or more smaller studios, or arrange them to allow for one large studio. The mobile nature of the divider allows each space's size to be easily adjusted for varying project sizes. The photography studio can now hide bulky office furniture and photo equipment, prevent lighting from other areas of the studio from affecting each other during simultaneous shoots, and use the partitions as backdrops—or even hang backdrops from them due to the pushpin-accepting acoustical fabric panels. The Quick-Wall is a great, portable solution for photographers of all types, whether their studio stays the same or travels with them. Cracchiola is ecstatic over her recent portable partition purchase, and we're excited to see it looking good in a professional photography studio environment. “I purchased your partition screens to split my large studio space into two studios,” she said. “The screens will give me the mobility I need to create divided spaces quickly. We love your product.”

    Customer Testimonials

  • Portable Partitions Control Traffic During Airport Construction

    Customer Testimonials
    Located six miles west of Downtown Tampa is the architecturally praised airport, Tampa International. Owned by Hillsborough County Aviation Authority, the airport was designed in the 1960s using a Landside/Airside design that contains a central terminal with people movers (a grade-separated mass transit system) to satellite air terminals and gates. The airport was one of the first to utilize this design and since then a variety of airports across the world have followed suit. Tampa International Airport currently serves 80 non-stop destinations throughout North America, Central America, the Caribbean and Europe. More than twenty major air carrier airlines, four regional airlines and two air cargo carriers serve the airport. It’s also one of only two United States airports that have regularly scheduled charters to four Cuban cities. Portable partitions are commonly used at airports undergoing construction, such as at DFW Airport in Dallas, where partition walls were set up in high-traffic construction areas. Creating portable walls in construction zones is a necessity since foot traffic must be regulated in order to keep up with busy flight scheduling. With it’s ongoing growth and constant heavy travel traffic, Tampa International Airport continues to expand it’s Main Terminal to be more accommodating for travelers. One of the most recent expansions included renovation projects to their moving railways, called airsides. One in particular, Airside A, underwent an overhaul to accommodate more passengers. During the renovation, improvements were made to the airside shuttles, but the construction obstructed passenger flow within the airport. For anyone that’s been traveling during airport construction, the inconvenience can be an issue. Wanting to keep foot traffic moving and not inconvenience their passengers, Tampa International Airport turned to Versare Solutions for portable partitions that could be easily transported or rearranged to control foot traffic. Using the Room Divider 360 folding partition, the airport was able to safely and efficiently divert traffic around the construction areas. Choosing the blue polycarbonate partition panel, the product fit well within the airport architecture. The polycarbonate plastic panels are also durable, shockproof, and spray-cleanable. When the project was complete, the partitions still had a use in security by the TSA. When they are not in use they can easily be folded and stored away.

  • Dividing Large Warehouse Space With Room Dividers

    Customer Testimonials
    Honeywell FM&T specializes in electrical, mechanical, and engineered material components for the United State’s Department of Energy. Located in Kansas City, Missouri, and with several locations in New Mexico, the company has a number of large manufacturing warehouses that contain open floor plans. The benefits of large rooms and spaces is that they feel less restrictive than smaller, more linear floor plans, and can encourage creativity with a variety of layout options. However, the extra breathing room can also become a nuisance, with products and departments overlapping, creating a somewhat chaotic state depending on the number of departments sharing the space. Honeywell was looking for a solution to divide and block off multiple areas of their warehouse for different manufacturing tasks and jobs. They knew they wanted large room dividers but were also looking for partitions that were lightweight and could easily be placed in multiple areas. Honeywell particularly wanted their partitions to be portable, to provide arrangement flexibility depending on the number of people per job area. Our recommendation was the popular Room Divider 360, which can accommodate heights up to 7'6", thus maximizing the available space that Honeywell has in their warehouses. The aircraft aluminum frame provides the light weight they desired, while the collapsible nature of these folding room dividers makes portability and storage a breeze. The full-sized panels on each end of these dividers provide enhanced stability compared to other partitions on the market, which is necessary in bustling work areas. The Room Divider 360 can be configured to any space and shape so that each warehouse can be broken up as necessary. For customers looking to divide a large open space, Versare’s Room Divider 360 is ideal for warehouses, classrooms, exhibitions and more. Give us a call today to learn how our partitions can work for you.
