  • An Operable Wall Divides Office Space Easily

    Customer Testimonials
    Open spaces are all the rage with startups and large tech companies these days, but more traditional companies often prefer a more structured approach to office organization. Dividing individual coworkers and departments is often conducive to productivity. Portable office partitions and walls from Versare are a great way to divide a workplace according to a variety of specifications. Kinder Morgan, headquartered in Houston, TX, is North America’s largest energy infrastructure company, owning and operating over 80,000 miles of natural gas and petroleum pipelines. They wanted to convert their open office setup with a large post down the middle. Because the post handily divided the two departments in the space, they were looking for a divider that would go around the post. They also wanted an office partition that would accommodate the high ceilings in the office, cover an open space, and cut down on noise. Versare’s solution to Kinder Morgan’s search was the Operable Wall Folding Room Divider. The Operable Wall is available in custom heights up to 12’, making it perfect for Kinder Morgan’s 9’6” ceilings. Available in lengths up to 19’2”, the hulking room divider can divide spaces up to 39’ when paired with mounting hardware. Although the portable wall is large, it is also easy to fold, with flexible hinges that allow slight movement on each panel, making it easy to fold around the huge post at Kinder Morgan. Because the acoustical panels on this office divider are 2” thick, it’s perfect for dampening sound. Overall, the Operable Wall was the perfect solution: a large, easy-to-install divider that would cut down on excessive sound and easily adjust to curve around the post in the middle of the space.

  • Area Entrepreneur Uses Portable Barricades For Childrens Attraction

    Customer Testimonials
    When public safety is a matter of concern, business owners and event organizers often choose portable steel barricades to provide crowd control and create boundaries. Portable barricades are great crowd control options for races, concerts, construction zones, celebrity autograph signings, and more.In the case of Minnesotan entrepreneur Omar Hattach, he needed a product to keep public bystanders safe and at a good distance from his Spider Jump attraction. The Spider Jump is a bungee trampoline system built for use at amusement parks, family entertainment centers, gyms, and more. Hattach brings his Spider Jump to local malls around the Twin Cities. He wanted a portable enclosure that would keep mall shoppers safe but allow them to view the Spider Jump so they would be encouraged to participate in the fun. Hattach came to Versare for a solution to his problem, and we recommended our Portable Steel Barricade. Our steel barricades are durable, lightweight, and extremely portable. Because the barricades are linkable, Hattach can easily build a customized boundary around his Spider Jump. The feet on the barricades can be folded or removed, making for easy storage. Hattach is thrilled with his Versare Portable Steel Barricades, and with the company itself. "I've been working and ordering from Versare for a few years now,” he said. “They always deliver on-time and have the best prices in the industry. Their portable barricades allow for fast and easy assembly every weekend, and takedown is a breeze too!"

  • Portable Partition Walls Create Restaurant Space

    Customer Testimonials
    Halal Pakistani and Indian Restaurant Turns a 180 Thanks to the Room Divider 360 When restaurants face large influxes of clientele during certain days, it helps to have a space that’s as adaptable as possible. Whether weekend free time or holiday specials cause crowds to fill an eatery’s walls, Versare’s portable partition walls and room dividers offer an array of appetizing options.Mehran Pakistani & Indian restaurant in San Antonio, Texas, has a large, open area with seating fit to accommodate large groups. While the restaurant offers a weekday a la carte menu, on weekends it offers a popular buffet. It also features Friday kabab nights that draw large crowds. Because of the different crowd numbers the restaurant serves depending on the day of the week, it needs to be prepared for both a large space for more people and an intimate setting for smaller crowds. The restaurant needed a solution to quickly subdivide their space to provide customer intimacy during the slower times, and a large open space when the business dictated it. Versare suggested the Room Divider 360, our best-selling partition wall. The 360º rotating hinge design allows a full range of movement per panel, giving this partition increased flexibility in creative arrangements. Mehran selected a nine-panel, 7’6”-tall unit in a color that nicely added to the restaurant’s ambience. Because the Room Divider 360 is so portable and easy to use—opening to a full 25’ in mere seconds and stowing away just as quickly—restaurant staff can accommodate their environment as quickly as clientele needs change. Mehran is now able to control foot traffic and create restaurant space easier thanks to its portable partition wall.

  • Custom-Printed Fitness Center Partitions Exercise the Eyes

    Customer Testimonials
    When new businesses are still finishing construction but are ready to build a clientele base, or when old businesses are improving and want to hide “how the sausage is made,” they need a way to cover up the mess and make their space look as welcoming as possible. Portable partitions are a perfect way to hide unsightly construction in an aesthetically pleasing way. Orangetheory Fitness was busy at work preparing their new gym location in Midtown Manhattan, but they needed to start signing up new members before the official opening. After all, what use is a gym with nobody to exercise there? Versare offered the perfect solution to their needs: a custom printed Room Divider 360 that would not only separate space but provide an eye-catching, colorful design to promote the brand. This fitness center partition could be quickly expanded or rearranged to accommodate the changing construction zone. For their pre-opening signup membership sales promotion, franchise owner James Wang wanted dividers that he could also use for future events, like health fares and corporate on-sites. He selected custom graphics that we then printed onto his one-of-a-kind divider. The result was a sharp looking divider in vivid colors that advertised Orangetheory, hid the gym’s ongoing construction and brightened the signup area. And it’s sure to draw attention at those future events. The fitness center is now able to create space while promoting their image and brand on their printed partition wall. "The custom printed divider turned out fantastic and served to be a great deterrent from the ongoing construction that was finishing up at our location,” Wang said. “I've recommended Versare's room dividers to other Orangetheory franchisees and encourage others to purchase from Versare as well."

  • Create Space in Coworking Spaces

    Customer Testimonials
    Telecommuting has become increasingly popular as more organizations develop the flexibility to conduct regular business and meetings via the internet. Even companies requiring face-to-face interaction often offer flex days or set days for their employees to work from the comforts of home. But sometimes home can be the source of distraction or stagnation. Not to mention that some blossoming startups don’t even have offices for their employees to escape from. Enter coworking spaces, offices where members can enjoy an office setting when they need it, without paying lofty office rental fees. CO+HOOTS Foundation is a community coworking space in Phoenix, Arizona, for remote professionals seeking an interesting environment and community to be a part of. CO+HOOTS offers a comfortable office for collaboration and networking between like-minded business people who still want to work independently. It also serves as a launching pad for entrepreneurs who have joined forces to impact America’s booming startup industry. Versare is a proud sponsor of CO+HOOTS and has provided sound-dampening office dividers and acoustic panels for the foundation’s workstations and classrooms. When we heard about CO+HOOTS Foundation’s innovations for entrepreneurs and small business owners, we knew they were a perfect fit as we expand our role in creating interactive, innovative, and functional office spaces. A wall-mounted StraightWall sliding partition wall, for example, works as a sliding door between the main coworking area and a classroom space. This allows the area to function as a multi-purpose room for seminars or coding events. The acoustical panels of this made-in-the-USA room divider provides excellent sound-dampening capabilities that helps further isolate the space during events. Once business owners at CO+HOOTS Foundation are ready to spread their wings, they can use Versare’s partitions to fashion multiple rooms, build portable cubicles, and use sound panels to control acoustics while maintaining the open community feel of the coworking space. As a team, CO+HOOTS and Versare are sure to provide the proper tools needed for startups to succeed and thrive. photos by Alex Schmitt at eeko studio

  • Customize Your Partitions Any Way You Want 'Em

    Customer Testimonials
    Customization drives many aspects of consumer goods and services—think about the personal photo on your debit card, the options on your car, or even the way you order your favorite sandwich. In addition to a variety of size, material, and color options, Versare's portable partitions provide a level of customization not found on rival room dividers. James Talbot from webuyanycar.com, the UK’s largest car-buying service, was looking for a partition that would provide an informative walk-through for customers and employees. He contacted Versare’s UK branch about our products, and we helped him choose our Room Divider 360. Talbot wanted to display a bright and charming illustration to guide customers through the webuyanycar.com service process. With the Room Divider 360, custom printing is an option, and with Talbot’s vector image we created a truly one-of-a-kind partition. But that wasn’t the only customization that Talbot wanted: he also requested the reverse side of the partitions serve as a magnetic whiteboard for brainstorming and developing ideas. The magnetic aspect would allow photographs, notes and other items to attach to it. We do what we can to please our customers, so we promptly assembled his partition the way he wanted it. According to James, the Room Divider 360 exceeded all of his expectations, providing the perfect product to suit his needs.

  • Improve Home Office Acoustics and Aesthetics With Sound Stones

    Product Information
    Working from home is the dream for many office and cubicle dwellers: no more commute, no dress code, and you already know you like the co-workers (yourself and possibly family or pets). But with the convenience of telecommuting come drawbacks. While you avoid the sounds that other people make in a traditional office environment, you may find that the sounds within your home—or home office, if you have a separate space—make concentration difficult. Those noises can also make meetings on the phone or in person unpleasant, particularly if they reverberate. Our Sherbet sound panels brighten home office walls while dampening sound Thankfully Versare has telecommuters covered with Sound Stones. These sound-dampening acoustic panels feature a premium construction not found on rival sound panels, which commonly feature fiberglass foam cores. Sound Stones utilize a 100% recyclable 2000-gram density nonwoven polyester to dampen sound in a more efficient and environmentally-friendly manner. With over 20 acoustical fabric colors to choose from, these sound panels can complement any home office decor. Our new fabric color, Sherbet, will make your walls pop and add warmth to your walls with a bright orange flair. Whether you're meeting with clients, conducting phone or web meetings, or simply trying to focus without the click-clack of your typing echoing off the walls, Sound Stones will enhance the serenity of your home office. Versare can't prevent cat steps on your keyboard, dog barks during phone calls, or noisy neighbors mowing their lawns, but we can offer a stylish and affordable sound-dampening solution to your home office space.

  • Building Cubicles and Team Spirit With DIY Partitions

    Customer Testimonials
    Event production companies cover multiple services for their clients, and in turn guests of those clients. In order to meet client expectations, these companies must produce approachable spaces that welcome customers yet lend themselves to employee motivation and focus. AlliedPRA of Atlanta approached Versare because they were moving into a new space and wanted to maximize its use. AlliedPRA’s custom destination management experiences include event production, incentive programs, authentic tours, transportation logistics, and meeting and conference management. Or, in their own words, they “create local destination experiences for meetings, incentives and events that move hearts, minds and businesses forward to deliver unforgettable moments.” The organization was looking to create private workstations while maintaining the open feel the new space's open atmosphere. Our DIY Hush Panel Cubicles provided a perfect solution for the event-planning company. With its tool-less, slide-and-go construction, office cubicles can be constructed by one person at a fraction of the time and cost of standard cubicles. This made the process of moving and setting up within the new office pretty painless for AlliedPRA, allowing the company to continue to focus on its clients vs getting distracted with setting up new office furniture. The plug-and-play nature of these cubes ensures easy installation, making them an ideal choice for creating instant workstation privacy. AlliedPRA chose durable woodgrain laminate panel options for an elegant and modern office aesthetic. Employees now have spacious and private workstations within the open office space. The ribbed polycarbonate windows provide visibility and allow light to flow freely throughout the room. Aside from one false start, the AlliedPRA team quickly and easily put the Hush Panel together. They also had a blast doing it. You might say that building the Hush Panel provided quite the teambuilding experience!Amy Johnson, president and owner of AlliedPRA Atlanta, worked with Versare to choose the perfect office partitions. “Everyone loves them,” Johnson said in her testimonial. “It was so funny when we were putting them together because the first four we tried to get exactly lined up and pushed down the poles. Then someone came in and said, “What if you put in the base and push one panel at a time?” and we were like, “OMG.” It was so much easier. One is easy, two harder, and four trying to match up is super hard. But [the correct way] was really easy.”

  • 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.
