The Boston National Historical Park spans 43 acres and incorporates parts of Downtown Boston, Charlestown, and South Boston. Along with managing the properties within the park, the Park Service operates two visitor centers, at Faneuil Hall and in the Charlestown Navy Yard. The park also carries guided tours and provides educational services for different age groups. Because of the great responsibility the park carries, they needed a main office equipped for parks business that also included a meeting area.
Before they came to Versare for help, the Park’s office and meeting area were in one open space. They needed a room divider that would block part of the meeting space to create privacy while absorbing sound, yet still allow light to pass through. The office divider would also need to be flexible enough for the configuration to change daily, with the option to create a 90-degree angle. No other room divider manufacturer offers partition panels that can flex a full 360º per panel, and no other partition dealer can customize to the level that we can.
It didn’t take an MIT graduate to find their solution: a customized Room Divider 360. We built their special wall-mounted room divider with acrylic windows on top to let in the light. The black acoustical fabric allows sound to be absorbed, with its 0.65 NRC rating. And the patented 360-degree hinges would allow for last-minute configuration changes. The result: A private space that was available for meetings but did not darken the room and absorbed sound at the same time.
