  • Versare Takes New Approach to School Safety

    Product Information Company News
    In a poll from May 2018, a third of public school parents who responded say they “fear for (the) physical safety” of their eldest child at school. Sadly, the proliferation of school shootings in this country has shattered our collective sense of security and left many on edge. Versare Solutions, LLC, believes defensive solutions are necessary to regain parental peace of mind and make America’s schools safe spaces once again. To address the threat of gun violence and active school shooters, we have created a new line of products that will provide a ballistic shield, integrating our innovative designs with state-of-the-art ballistic protection materials.The new patent-pending Versare Portable Shield Partition has been tested and certified to the latest ballistic standards. One of the two layers of traditional honeycomb backing is replaced with a layer of ARMAT Ballistic Material™ in between our acoustical fabric, creating a classroom teaching aid that is at once both functional and fearless. ARMAT has been tested and certified under the National Institute of Justice Standard NIJ0108.01 by independent Ballistic Laboratories. Our initial product is rated at the IIIA level under this standard, which means it can withstand multiple impacts by .44 Magnum and 9mm ammunition. Teachers can use the room divider as they normally would – affixing papers and art projects and creating private spaces within multi-use rooms – but do so knowing that some walls within their classroom may be able to shield their children from harm. However, kids may have a hard time learning if their classroom feels like a fort. This portable partition allows teachers and school administrators to create an environment that’s safe and secure, but subtle and still conducive to learning.Made in Minnesota and available in 24 different colors, this partition resembles portable room dividers already found in many classrooms. It can be easily stored with a collapsed width of 33” and set up to its full height of 6’8’’ and width of 19’ 9” in mere seconds, providing an instant protective shield with minimum deployment time.

    Product Information Company News
    Versare is a firm believer that all schools and educational institutions should be safe learning centers for all children and young adults that represent our nation’s future. All parents, educators and administrators should feel confident knowing their children and students are safe while at school and will return home at the end of the day.

  • Urban loft upgrades to a StraightWall

    Company News
    Home Partition — Clear Polycarbonate StraightWall If you work from home, you understand the importance of setting up the ideal work environment. Home can bring comforts that an office wouldn’t, but it can also bring with it many distractions. Versare offers a multitude of portable office partitions to create the perfect home office setup. For example, one of our customers had just closed on the urban loft of their dreams. As an independent contractor, they loved the freedom of working at home, and their previous home had a separate office perfect for it. But the new loft had completely open floorplan with no designated area for an office. To compound the dilemma, the loft only had two large windows that were in the living room area, giving a great view of the city but making lighting a big consideration in setting up an office.Our client chose a small space in the loft, opposite the living room, that was perfect for a home office. But building a wall there would close off the area, blocking it from natural light and ruining the large, open feel of the loft. While building a clear wall would allow the flow of light, it would still make the loft feel smaller. But with a little creative planning and design work—plus the reliable Straightwall Wall-Mounted Sliding Partition in clear polycarbonate—a little corner of our client’s loft became the perfect home office. This version of the sliding straightwall featuring a lightweight, waterproof, shock resistant and translucent polycarbonate core with a durable aluminum frame. Each Polycarbonate plastic panel features a lightweight but durable construction. Sliding telescoping hinges create a smooth, straight line. Because of the translucence of the polycarbonate Straightwall, light could properly flow through the loft without sacrificing privacy. Our customer had now created the perfect home office, a secluded place to work that was professional enough not to feel like the working at home.

  • How Versare Room Dividers Create Co-Living Spaces

    Company News
    Versare has helped businesses in a variety of industries, including tech startups and co-working spaces. A new venture for us: co-living spaces. The booming tech industry in major cities on the West Coast, and the high cost of renting in those cities, has created a severe affordable housing shortage. And many short-term workers aren’t looking for long-term housing solutions. With the rise of price in high demand areas, shared housing is a great alternative to a long-term lease or a roommate who hasn’t been vetted. Many co-living apartment complexes are jumping in to fill some of this housing void. Generally, 2-4 people live in one apartment, with each room split in half—with portable partitions and walls—to maximize occupancy while offering some privacy. This is a great concept for young workers and college students.But what about people who are looking for a more traditional setup, like a home? Companies in San Francisco, like HubHaus, have begun to fill this void. HubHaus is a community of working professionals that bring people together to create a home. Like apartment co-living, the shared housing spaces will take larger rooms and split them in half to increase occupancy but retain the elements of a home. They will also wall off open living areas to afford privacy when housemates are looking for a temporary measure of privacy on a given day.HubHaus purchased several of Versare’s portable partitions to divide the rooms in their shared houses. Our StraightWall and Room Divider 360 are both easy to move, adjust, and store, and they provide the sound-proofing necessary in a shared living space. With both a stand-alone, accordion option and a fixed-wall option, it’s obvious why the Room Divider 360 is our best-seller. Its 360-degree hinges make it easy to curve into a variety of shapes, making it versatile for dividing living spaces. The StraightWall creates, well, a straight wall and also comes in a wall-mounted variety. Because this sliding partition wall can be adjusted to any length, it’s ideal for a shared housing situation. Our acoustical fabric is available in colors ranging from neutral to bright and modern, which makes our room dividers adaptable to a multitude of spaces. Versare and co-living spaces: a match made in heaven.

  • Creating Portable Shelters and Classrooms for Flood Relief

    Company News
    In August 2016, prolonged rainfall in Louisiana resulted in catastrophic flooding that submerged thousands of houses, schools, religious institutions and businesses. At the time, it was called a "historic and unprecedented flooding event" and was declared a state of emergency. In the wake of the aftermath, Versare received an urgent call from representatives at Central Middle School, in Baton Rouge, to help relocate displaced students. The school needed to create room dividers to create 27 temporary classrooms for relocated students.

  • Portable Partitions as Nursing Station Privacy Screens

    Company News
    It’s no secret that health professionals and public health officials promote breastfeeding to improve infant health. Several studies show that both mothers and children benefit from breast milk. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report that 77 percent of mothers start breastfeeding immediately after birth. Even though that number dips to 17 percent at 12 months, it’s common for moms that are breastfeeding to find it difficult to nurse up to one year. A large contributing factor to this is due to work schedules and lack of support in the workspace, including a place to nurse that meets the standards of the Affordable Care Act that was signed in March 2010. According to Section 4207, employers are required to provide reasonable break time for employees to express breast milk. This law has led to many businesses voluntarily providing a comfortable space for breastfeeding moms. However, businesses still face the challenge of locating a designated space for breastfeeding mothers. Another concern is the cost of building an additional space to accommodate moms. These businesses have turned to Versare Portable Products to meet their needs. Common nursing station screens include Versare's MP10 Portable Partition and The Privacy Screen. Several business have already implemented Versare Solutions for their working moms including a large retail pharmacy and leading global discount supermarket. Privacy has always been a major concern for customers, employees, and just about everyone else in between. As we continue to improve and update our working environments, consider Versare Solutions to create nursing station privacy where working moms can excel.

  • Versare School Room Dividers Create Temporary Classrooms

    Company News
    Several weeks ago, Versare received a call of desperation from representatives of Central Middle School located in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The city was bouncing back from several days of record flooding that dropped more water than the historical Katrina storm. One school in particular, Tanglewood Elementary, sustained significant water damage, making it impossible for students to attend the start of the school year on September 6th. The students were being relocated to Central Middle School for several weeks and the school was in desperate need of a room divider solution to create 27 temporary classrooms. Versare room dividers quickly created temporary classrooms We immediately jumped to the challenge and accepted the task of designing, fabricating, delivering, and installing 27 portable classrooms in Central Middle School within just six days. Versare quickly got to work bringing together our highly skilled workforce, and utilized our large capacity and robust supply chain to provide Central Middle School with 73 of our most popular school room dividers, the Room Divider 360. Known for their durability, arrangement flexibility, and easy mobility, we knew these dividers would be easy to transport, set up and take down as the school needed. Whiteboards attach to each portable classroom wall Versare was able to get the Central Middle School room dividers ready in just one day, leaving five days for a representative to travel to Baton Rouge to assist in set-up and help other trades to make sure all classrooms were configured properly. The temporary classrooms were set-up in two gymnasiums and one common area. Each room was sectioned off with Room Divider 360’s which included hanging whiteboards, and a temporary power cable. Each temporary space was then filled with 30 desks and chairs creating enough space to effectively house roughly 900 displaced students. Classes were able to start on time with Versare's temporary classrooms We were honored to be presented with this opportunity to help Baton Rouge residents during this time of need. A total of 118 of 318 school buses sustained water damage and roughly 60 percent of Tanglewood Elementary school employees suffered some kind of flood damage to home or vehicles.
