  • Building a Maze With Portable Partitions

    Product Information
    Sometimes, running a small business can feel like a real rat race—never being able to get through that maze and ahead of the competition. And other times, like in the case of CSM Sport & Entertainment, you get to build the maze for the amusement of other people. In this instance, the main challenge was figuring out what room dividers to use to build the maze. But that wasn’t a major challenge for Versare. CSM helps build businesses, brands and organizations through the power of sport and entertainment. They told us that they wanted to purchase portable partitions to build a life-size, outdoor maze for a public relations event. The dividers would need to be flexible enough for intricate configurations, bends, and curves. They would also need to be tough enough to withstand the elements. We had the perfect product: The Room Divider 360 in semi-translucent red polycarbonate. Because of the partition’s patented 360-degree hinge, the customer can create virtually any configuration imaginable. Variations in width—between 8’6” and 25’—allowed CSM to meet their large-scale needs and create walls of different sizes and arrangements, with the rotating hinge allowing circular formations. The durable polycarbonate panels were tough enough for the outdoor setting due to their shock-absorbing plastic construction. The daylight shining through the translucent red gave the maze an eye-catching burst of glowing color. In the end, CSM constructed an incredible maze out of partitions that attracted a great deal of publicity to their event. Once again, Versare helped a customer generate amaze-ing results.

  • U.S. Bank Stadium Arranges Space With Versare Dividers

    Product Information
    U.S. Bank Stadium opened in Minneapolis last fall to large, enthusiastic crowds. Home of the Minnesota Vikings, the stadium quickly became a place to see and be seen during sporting events. Its popularity will culminate with the hosting of Super Bowl 51 next February. But what stadium operators didn’t anticipate was how extreme the crowds and traffic flow in and around the concourse area would be. Lines were spilling into the concourse and in between open concession stands. They also faced the issue of closing off each stand if needed during on-field events, like the 2017 Draft Party. Versare's polycarbonate partitions are tough enough to ward off the most rabid fans When stadium and foodservice operators approached fellow Minneapolis natives Versare for a solution, we were glad to help. We came up with the Room Divider 360 in a polycarbonate. It offers a level of privacy and flexibility, and it is easily washable. During open events, concession stands can now be easily separated from each other, creating an inviting space to purchase food without the crush of the crowds. In addition to polycarbonate panels, we also offer acoustical fabric and woodgrain laminate panel options. Check out the handy Versare partition panel guide to figure out what's best for your space.

  • Insurance Agency Ensures Privacy With Versare Cubicles

    Customer Testimonials
    Barrood Agency, Inc. of New Brunswick, NJ, began as Barrood Real Estate in 1940. After 77 years of growth as a real estate and insurance agency, they still strive to keep the warmth and communal feeling of an open office intact. But they realized that they needed to provide privacy for their agents and clients. David Barrood came to Versare for a portable partition that would create separation and sound absorption. We suggested the Hush Panel DIY Cubicle Partition and it was the perfect fit. The customizable office partition is constructed of 2”-thick sound-dampening acoustical panels that are easily put together. Unlike standard cubicles, which require tools and several people to construct, Hush Panels slide together to save offices both time and money. The unparalleled ease of use and affordable price point are perfect for small businesses, which don't always have the time or budget to spend on setting up complex workstations. Barrood chose Hush panels with the transparent acrylic glass option, and the results were perfect (though as evidenced in the picture, some may prefer a little extra privacy). But don’t just take our word for it. According to Barrood, “The Hush Panel was able to give my agents a more private office feel, while still keeping our open floorplan intact. Versare was able to plan, design, and execute exactly what we envisioned to uphold our office environment.”

  • Versare's Clear Polycarbonate Room Divider Hits The Big Time

    Product Information
    Marcus Lemonis is an entrepreneur who rose from orphaned Lebanese baby to millionaire status. His love for starting small businesses began when he started mowing lawns at age 12 and he hasn’t stopped since. Now, he uses his spending power and business knowledge to help struggling small-business owners make it in this competitive world. On CNBC’s The Partner, Lemonis is searching for the perfect business partner to help him run the companies that he invested almost $50 million in during the first seasons of his previous show, The Profit. While Lemonis and a group of competitive business leaders are the stars of the show, Versare’s very own sliding StraightWall partition plays an important role as well. Beginning in episode two of the show’s premiere season, you can witness the popular portable partition in all its glory. As the competitors plan ad campaigns to sell themselves as the perfect partner, the Room Divider 360—featured in the sleek Clear polycarbonate finish—serves as an excellent accent. And it’s available to easily roll into place when needed to divide space in the show’s open-office setting. A sturdy, flexible, and beautiful partition available in a variety of material and color options, the StraightWall is a great option for modern offices. The plastic polycarbonate finish, chosen by the makers of The Partner, is available in a classic clear, along with eight other colors, each with its own level of translucence, allowing light in while preserving privacy. The low-profile casters provide stability our competitors don’t provide and make it easy to move the divider where needed. When you’re looking for the perfect decorative, portable wall for your office, the choice is clear: Versare's StraightWall partition.

  • Versare's Lock-N-Block Increases Airport Store Security

    Customer Testimonials
    Security is one of the many reasons that customers come to Versare for portable barricades. When warehouses, schools, and small businesses need to block off areas to keep merchandise and good safe, their choice is the Lock-N-Block Collapsible Security Gate. Chiropractic service Chiroport operates in terminal one of the Minneapolis-Saint Paul airport. Their services include trigger point massage, stretching, and adjustments. Because they operate out of a small location that opens directly onto the concourse, and since the airport has 24/7 traffic, Chiroport needed a system to securely lock the facility while closed. Furthermore, they needed this system to be affordable, acceptable by the airport, and functional to allow easy access and visibility to the business for advertising purposes during off hours. Versare’s solution was, of course, the Lock-N-Block. A portable, wall-mounted security fence, the Lock-N-Block Security Gate can be quickly collapsed or expanded and locked. The Lock-N-Block security gate is available in three durable finishes: silver, black, or yellow/black industrial powder coat, making it suitable for a multitude of settings. Chiroport chose a black finish to match their décor, and the gate’s 6’ height was more than enough to keep the office secure.

  • 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
