  • Steel vs. Aluminum Room Dividers: The Facts

    Product Information
    You may have noticed that some room dividers are made with steel frames, while others are made with anodized aluminum. In general, steel is a heavy, rugged metal, while aluminum is lightweight and durable. When it comes to bicycles, steel may be a good choice, but when it comes to portable partitions, aluminum can’t be beat. For our room dividers, we use black anodized aluminum due to its strength, light weight, and durability. Airplanes are crafted out of aluminum for these basic reasons. The low density of aluminum is the main driver for using it in many structural applications. The high strength-to-weight ratio is the number one reason for its development in the aircraft industry. Therefore, it is much more advantageous to have a portable wall constructed out of aluminum versus steel. #gallery-1{margin:auto}#gallery-1 .gallery-item{float:left;margin-top:10px;text-align:center;width:50%}#gallery-1 img{border:2px solid #cfcfcf}#gallery-1 .gallery-caption{margin-left:0;padding-left:0} Aluminum Room Divider Frame Steel Room Divider FrameAluminum is a strong, durable material that allows the partition to withstand years of regular usage. We also use a cast aluminum corner joint, which increases durability, unlike other brands. Aluminum does not rust, which gives our customers the option to use our products indoors as well as outdoors in the elements, making our portable partitions great for patio spaces or outdoor restaurant needs. If a steel frame is scratched, it can easily rust. Aluminum’s light weight gives a huge advantage when considering portability and ease of use. We intentionally chose aluminum over steel not only for its durability, but also considering the significant heft of a steel-framed room divider, which ultimately requires more effort to transport, open, and close. When maneuvering a steel-framed partition over rough surfaces, you will certainly feel the weight of it tipping back and forth. Our aluminum frames and lowered clearance prohibit such potentially dangerous behavior. Plus, the reduced weight means less wear and tear on the rolling casters. Since our room dividers are lightweight, it makes shipping our products easy and cost-efficient, and allows us to provide FREE SHIPPING in the continental U.S. We use aluminum instead of steel because we have the customer in mind.

  • Room Dividers: Articulating or Telescoping?

    Product Information
    Our two most popular room dividers are the Room Divider 360 Articulating Partition and the StraightWall Telescoping Partition. Both units are excellent portable partitions, and each has its own advantages. To help you decide which would work best for you, let’s discuss some of the similarities and differences. The Room Divider 360 is an articulating partition built with our patented 360 degree hinge. This allows for each 33’’ wide panel to rotate in any direction, making any configuration you need just a turn of a panel away. Easily divide your space into an “L” shape, “U” shape, or evenly divide your space by creating a straight line. An enclosed circle shape can be created with 2 or more units. The Room Divider 360 is a good choice for someone who may have to change their space division on a regular basis - that way you have the options to display many configurations. The StraightWall is a telescoping partition, meaning the panels slide out in a series, allowing you to customize you’re the length of the unit. The StraightWall can only be displayed in a straight line, hence the name. This is a great choice to help maximize your space; any exact length you need to cover is possible. The StraightWall is perfect for creating a rolling entrance or exit since the panels simply slide back and forth like a sliding door. Both units are made with same lightweight durable aluminum frame, and both are available in a selection of sound-absorbing fiberglass fabric, semi-transparent polycarbonate, or durable vinyl. The Room Divider 360 and StraightWall come on non-marking low profile casters which eliminate tripping hazard, and they both ship fully assembled for FREE in the continental United States.

  • Which Room Divider Material is Right for You?

    Product Information
    Portable partitions and room dividers are generally available in 3 material choices: fabric, polycarbonate, and vinyl. Each of these materials offers a different purpose and can ultimately be a great asset to your partition if you know which choice will accommodate your setup best. Fabric, which is the most popular choice, is a perfect choice if sound control is one of your main concerns. The combination of fabric and fiberglass used in Portablepartitions.com panels is sound-absorbing, making it a great choice for testing facilities, churches, schools, banquet halls, and conference centers. It is also available in 24 colors, making it easy to find a color that will go with your décor or theme. The fabric is fully tackable, allowing for you to display artwork or signage. If easy cleanup is a necessity, then the polycarbonate material is going to be the best choice for your needs. Polycarbonate room divider panels can easily be washed down and towel or air dried. This is the perfect solution for spray tan salons, art rooms, or laboratories that deal with harsh chemicals that would otherwise damage fabric or vinyl. Many restaurants use the polycarbonate partitions to divide their outdoor seating areas since it can also take on the elements of the outdoors. The polycarbonate material also allows for an illuminated area that is great for private parties that call for extra privacy without the need to bring in extra lighting. Polycarbonate is available in six colors with varying opacities, allowing for a range of lighting options. Vinyl is also available for the partitions, and falls somewhere between fabric and polycarbonate. Vinyl room dividers can also be wiped down with water, but they are not suitable for the outdoors. It is a good alternative for those who want the look of fabric, but need to easily clean their units. Vinyl will help absorb some sound but will not provide the same acoustics of fabric. It is available in 6 attractive colors. For more room divider ideas, check out our entire selection of room divider colors and styles.
