  • 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.”

  • Create Instant Cubicles for Temporary Workers During Tax Season

    Product Information
    The cold chill in the air can only mean one thing - tax time is here. During tax season, many accounting agencies, financial firms, and other businesses may find themselves supplementing their existing workforce with temporary employees. This challenging time of the year can find accounting departments struggling to keep up with work and tax preparation, thus creating more duties for temp workers. These interim staff members support staff but oftentimes need areas to set up shop and get to work. Standard office cubicles are costly and time-consuming to set up, so a truly portable, temporary partition option is ideal for these seasonal employees. Hush Panel DIY Cubicles are a common remedy for office spaces during tax season. The tool-less nature and plug-and-play design of these lightweight cubicle partitions ensures an ease of use not found elsewhere. Each panel slides into the posts, allowing a wide variety of customizations. Simple cubicle shapes consisting of 3 panels can be easily and affordably expanded by building onto the existing posts. Multiple workstations can be fashioned in minutes, and by a single person, unlike most cubicles on the market, which require teams and tools for creation. Wall-mounted cubicle dividers in action The Hush Panel cubicle wall-mount bracket allows panels to be connected directly to the wall, providing even more office space-saving flexibility. Call centers can be quickly created, allowing temporary staff to integrate efficiently within financial firms, banks, and any other business departments welcoming new accounting professionals. Tax specialists and firms often set up temporary tax stations within grocery stores or drug stores. Hush Panel Cubicles allow quick creation of these workstations, so agencies and tax firms can comfortably set up temporary stations for customers.

  • Custom-Printed Privacy Screens Lead Customers In the Right Direction

    Customer Testimonials
    Redwood Credit Union offers personal and business banking products to customers throughout California. This rapidly growing credit union offers a plentiful amount of ATMs spread throughout the Sacramento / San Francisco area. With the popularity of their ATMs, Redwood soon discovered a need to close off ATMs that were under service or repair, and redirect customers to up-and-running ones. The credit union did not want their ATM locations looking like a construction zone during repairs or updates. Our recommendation was a custom-printed privacy screen with branded graphics that would not only direct people to the right place, but integrate seamlessly with the Redwood Credit Union brand. “The screens were delivered on time and have been very well-received,” said a spokesman from Redwood Credit Union. Aesthetically pleasing and cost efficient, custom privacy screens can soften the look of construction and out-of-service areas. The folding nature of our custom-printed privacy screens allows quick and easy setup in front of ATMs or other public machinery. The ability to custom print on the room divider means they can be designed to fit any business and need, from corporate logos to sports team mascots. The printed acoustical fabric offers high-quality acoustical control to dampen sound within office or work spaces. Our fabric is pushpin-accepting, thus allowing tackable notices or signs that need to be hung near the area. If you’re looking for a printed privacy screen that is easy on the wallet and pleasing to the eye, give us a call at 800-830-0210 to see what we can do for you.

  • 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.

  • Acoustical Wall Building for Podcast Pros

    Product Information
    Do you remember the days of bulky Walkmans and disc players? It may be a surprising reminder that the Walkman was invented only 35 years ago, though many of us oldies have observed this technology come and go during our lifetime, evolving into smaller, more efficient, and more complex devices. Gadgets come and go, but good acoustical control transcends tech. We have seen the emergence of music, video and broadcasting on-demand. Almost everybody we know has a device that carries a music library that would make most professional musicians blush. Listeners can stream music, video, television, radio and any other digital media twenty-four hours a day. With the ability to stream over Wi-Fi or data plans, we have witnessed the resurgence of podcasts. Even more, technology has enabled podcasters to create media without having to leave their home office or apartment. iTunes alone has more than 250,000 podcasts currently streaming through the network. Although advancements in technology have taken some of the heat off of the need for a professional recording booth, in order to get a well-recorded podcast with proper sound, podcasters need more than their mobile device. The need for professional recording equipment is still there and many podcasters face the issue of affordability. Just some of the equipment needed for a professional recording booth are microphones, preamplifiers, analog-to-digital interfaces, and recording software. But the most overlooked and important piece of all this equipment is actually the recording space. That’s right, the acoustics of the recording space are probably even more important to the sound of a podcast than the mic and preamp. The good news is that you can dramatically improve the acoustics of just about any space with the right material. Ideally the space in which you record should be a “dead space”, that is, a space where most of the sound made by your mouth is caught by the microphone in front of you, and the rest is absorbed, not reflected, by the surfaces around you. Many home recording spaces have sought Versare partitions and sound panels for affordable acoustical control. Since much of the echo that may be heard on a recording comes from walls closest to the microphone, it's a sensible solution to place your partition or sound panel close to your recording area. Many podcasters have had great success by utilizing Versare’s VersiPanel and/or VersiFold acoustical wall to create a concave divider that curves around the back of the mic at a distance of about a foot. This very quickly absorbs much of the sound coming from your mouth, and prevents it from bouncing back at the mic, causing echo. The VersiPanel and VersiFold dividers are constructed with acoustical ribbed fabric and heavy foam cores. They feature heavy stitch line construction versus tradition glued systems. They also come with powerful 20lbs rare-earth magnets to connect multiple panels together. This is a perfect solution for creating an acoustical wall within your studio, or using as an acoustical backdrop on a stage or behind a podium. Versare’s acoustical product line has been rigorously tested and received a .60 NRC rating from an independent third party lab. It's no wonder these heavy-duty partitions are used so frequently for podcasting and voice recording.

  • Affordable Accordion Door Alternatives

    Product Information
    Most people know of accordion doors from seeing them in hotels, schools and churches. These partitions became popular throughout the 1980s by offering a way to create a temporary wall between two spaces. The panels collapse and expand (hence the "accordion" name) and run along a ceiling-mounted rail. They offer a convenient way to divide space without having a permanent wall. The problem is that installation of these track-mounted divider systems can be cumbersome and expensive. Anything attached to a ceiling is often covered by local building codes and associated fees. Many codes won't allow anything close to a sprinkler head, and others regulate HVAC circulation. Track-mounted accordion doors simply don't provide the same value as Versare partition walls. With starting prices close to $1,000/foot (just for the accordion doors), expect a possible increase of $30,000 – $100,000 to move sprinklers, improve HVAC, or strengthen the ceiling. As you can see, cost becomes a big factor. The Operable Wall provides more benefits at a fraction of the price of a track-mounted partition system. A portable or wall-mounted room divider is not only more cost-effective, but can also be easily relocated, in case the room situation needs to change or a different arrangement is desired. Versare portable room dividers collapse quickly for easy storage, while build-in panel locks make transport a cinch. Versare wall-mounted partitions function similarly to accordion doors, but without the track mount. The space between the divider and the ceiling ensures proper air flow and ventilation while still providing the same amount of privacy. Our Operable Wall system uses special 2" thick panels, greatly reducing sound and increasing room privacy. With dozens of size, color, and panel material options, we offer something to fit just about any situation.

  • Creating Comfortable Activity Spaces With Classroom Dividers

    Customer Testimonials
    Michigan's Lifechurch Southfield came to us looking for a way to divide classroom space. This growing church community used a large common area to create learning and activity centers for children. The wide open space of the room presented a challenge in organizing the children, since a variety of age groups were becoming easily dispersed within the large space. Lifechurch was looking for an economical and quick solution to creating classroom space. The large open area initially presented an organizational challenge Lifechurch was looking for an immediate solution, and since they needed to order several units, price was a concern. Since acoustical control wasn't a requirement, we recommended our budget canvas room dividers. The MP10 portable partition, like our premium and acoustical Room Divider 360, features our patented 360º rotating hinge design. This folding hinge technology provides a full range of movement per panel, giving the user a massive amount of control over their arrangement setup. This valuable feature presented a perfect solution for Lifechurch, since their classroom spaces can fluctuate depending on age groups present. The MP10 partitions also make excellent dividers for classrooms and daycares due to their bright colors. Lifechurch chose red and blue to add color and excitement for their younger ones. Matching brightly-colored carpet was placed over the gym floor to create a more comfortable learning environment. Since our economical canvas partitions are pre-built, Lifechurch was able to receive their shipment in just a few days. The portable classroom dividers have since transformed their open space into a comfortable learning area. "I ordered a bunch of room dividers a couple weeks back for my church. I just wanted to thank Liz so much for making that order happen in such a timely efficient manner. Our previous vendor had dropped the ball at the last minute, and getting those dividers to us on time, making sure there was a lift gate on the truck, and tracking and checking on the shipment was awesome. You really came through for us and helped me to make sure over 60 kids had a comfortable, safe, fun space to learn and play." - Kim Sanders, Lifechurch Southfield
