  • 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.

  • Building Quick, Temporary Classroom With Portable Partitions

    Customer Testimonials
    Tacoma Public School in Tacoma, Washington is experiencing an exciting time of expansion. The school system is currently replacing the former Wainwright Elementary School with the first school in the Tacoma district to serve students in grades four through eight. The transition has resulted in an influx of students requiring temporary classrooms. The Tacoma School District has upgraded the lower level play space of a nearby school, Whittier Elementary School, and called upon Versare to provide classroom partitions to create multi-purpose rooms for students. Our versatile Room Divider 360 was able to provide the school partitions that the Tacoma School District was looking for. These classroom dividers function in a variety of ways, providing separation of classroom spaces, sound-dampening capabilities, and the ability to hang whiteboards so teachers may continue to teach within these portable classrooms as normal as possible. The school partitions not only provide temporary classrooms for students, but also a space where students are able to focus and concentrate on their work while avoiding distractions. The sound-dampening nature of our acoustical fabric provides a quiet area for exam or study times, while the height of the dividers diverts attention from any visual distractions. Unlike railings found on other school room dividers, the full-sized end panels of the 360 room dividers inhibit children from climbing upon them, making the portable classrooms a safe environment. In addition to the portable classrooms, upgrades in the lower level area at Whittier Elementary include adding new lighting, an HVAC system, new windows, carpeting and lockers. For schools who find themselves in the middle of a remodel, with displaced students or simply needing temporary or portable classrooms, Versare has a variety of classroom partitions and room dividers to keep schools functioning at full capacity while providing an ideal learning environment for students.

  • 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. Versare Solutions is proud to have provided our 360 Room Dividers for Central Middle School so that students could continue to attend classes and their education at the start of the new school year. #gallery-1{margin:auto}#gallery-1 .gallery-item{float:left;margin-top:10px;text-align:center;width:33%}#gallery-1 img{border:2px solid #cfcfcf}#gallery-1 .gallery-caption{margin-left:0;padding-left:0}  Further reading: https://www.theadvocate.com/baton_rouge/news/education/article_86e96788-6a1b-11e6-9b41-b72ac222a4cb.html https://www.theadvocate.com/baton_rouge/news/education/article_41d5e010-63c5-11e6-96e2-a389d8742e7a.html https://www.slj.com/2016/08/industry-news/as-school-begins-louisiana-endures-record-floods/ https://www.washingtonpost.com/national/the-latest-power-being-restored-throughout-south-louisiana/2016/08/19/176410e4-65fb-11e6-b4d8-33e931b5a26d_story.html

  • Extra Large Room Dividers Provide Patient Privacy

    Customer Testimonials
    Pamala Schwarz, owner and Certified Natural Healthcare Practitioner of Schwarz Wellness Center, knew she wanted the option to divide up one of her large spaces into two separate private rooms. This proposed a challenge. She did not want to build a wall, nor did she want to disturb here electrical, plumbing, etc by mounting an accordion wall. Track-mounted accordion door systems require professional installation, plus they often require building code approval. Since track-mounted accordion partitions are floor-to-ceiling, they can interfere with HVAC circulation. After researching online, Pamela was introduced to Versare.Our Operable Walls are extra-large room dividers that mount to the wall. This eliminates the need for a ceiling track and professional installation since the two wall brackets mount easily and quickly. Air circulation won't be affected since these large-scale partitions leave a space between the ceiling. Available in heights up to 12' tall, we offer two flavors of Operable Wall: Folding and Sliding. Each version expands and folds flush against the wall. Pamela chose the sliding hinge version to ensure all panels aligned in a straight line regardless of length used.The operable wall allows customers to install a non-permanent divider, up to 12' in height, to create a very private and intimate experience for patients. The thick 2" acoustical panels are ideal for supplying auditory privacy by absorbing sound between the two sides, accomplishing the private experience patients desire. Check out our full range of wall-mounted room dividers for easy, affordable privacy.

  • Portable Partitions Complement Your Congregation

    Customer Testimonials
    Churches and places of prayer are often used for a lot more than Sunday gatherings of worship. In fact, most churches also serve as classrooms, worship sites, early childhood development sites and even full-time schools. While some churches have multiple rooms built into the building, there are many that are a large open space and are in need of church partitions that can easily transition that space into a variety of smaller rooms. Church partitions can divide space and control acoustics This was the case for Divine Mercy Parish. After relocating to a brand new location, the church was needing worship area partitions and classroom dividers to create different sized spaces for the classes and services that are held at the parish. Divine Mercy Parish was recommended to Versare Solutions by a fellow church that had recently used our Room Divider 360 to create separate classrooms in their own worship space. Versare's Room Divider 360s dividing worship space When Divine Mercy came to us, we recommended the same church partitions seeing as our Room Divider 360 can easily be configured to the worship space's needs and they absorb sound, a necessity when shopping for classroom dividers. At the same time, the partitions are easy to put away for storage when not in use, something that was important to Divine Mercy as they have a variety of activities and uses for their space. Portable church dividers can serve many functions Today, Divine Mercy is using their worship area partitions to continue to offer their wide array of services to their congregation in their new location. The Room Divider 360 provides flexible, private and noise absorbing spaces so that their parish can thrive at providing a place of worship and teaching for their community.

  • Sink or Swim: Aircraft Aluminum or Submarine Steel Room Dividers?

    Product Information
    When it comes to portability, we assume you want something lightweight and strong. After all - portability should imply ease. So why is it that when it comes to portable room dividers, we're the only ones using aluminum frames? Our competition has been using heavy steel frames since the 1980s - no joke. While we respect the idea of tradition, we feel it's a little more important to improve upon the user experience, so we engineer our dividers differently. It's referred to as "aircraft aluminum" due to its popular application within the aerospace industry on planes, space shuttles, and more. Aluminum has a light weight and low density that resists corrosion through passivation. What this means is that aluminum will not rust, even if scratched. Steel, on the other hand, rusts easily, and in areas involving constant use and children, this could become a health and safety hazard. Also known for its resilience, aluminum can carry large loads while absorbing shock or impact. Aluminum can handle a range of extreme temperatures and situations with grace, which is why it's the preferred metal for air travel. What does all this mean for you and your room divider search? We guarantee our aircraft aluminum frames are lighter and stronger than common steel room dividers in the marketplace. This ensures a much greater ease of use, both in relocating and opening / closing our portable room dividers. Cumbersome, heavy steel frames in the competition’s dividers just can’t compare. So what it boils down to is: do you want to fly high with aircraft aluminum or sink with submarine steel? sources: https://news.stanford.edu/pr/00/aluminum511.html https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aluminium

  • Enhance Patient Privacy With Portable Partitions

    Customer Testimonials
    Hospitals, clinics, and other health care services deal with overcrowding and a lack of privacy on a daily basis. With patients coming in and out of a hospital or clinic all day, some in more critical condition than others, there’s always a need for patient privacy during exams. Ideally each patient has their own room, but in open spaces where large amounts of patients are seen at a time, this privacy can be harder to find. This is where a clinic room divider can come in handy. Atlantic Health Care was looking to enhance privacy during patient exams. They came to Versare in search of a clinic privacy solution that was not only convenient and affordable, but matched the comforting decor of their exam rooms. Most importantly, they needed to be able to easily move the units in and out of the exam rooms when they were not in use. We went with our trusted and most popular partition, the Room Divider 360. This perfect exam room divider opens, closes, and rotates easily and quickly to create a variety of shapes not found on other room dividers. Our patented 90º rotating hinges providing a non-wavering divider that reduces tripping hazards, covers any angle, and increases area attractiveness.

Atlantic's exam room privacy was thus increased, while the portability and ease of use allows their dividers to be quickly relocated when necessary. “The privacy screens are perfect for the exam rooms. They are lightweight, flexible and easy to maneuver!" said Jean-Marie from Atlantic Health. “The sales team was very helpful and responsive to all our requests and concerns. I was unable to tell if the fabric material would match via the pictures on the website. Dan, our sales rep offered to send me sample swatches, which arrived within a few days. This made a huge difference in selecting the right color fabric. I would definitely recommend Versare!" Enhance patient privacy with Versare.

  • Enhance Office Privacy and Productivity with Versare Cubicle Partitions

    Customer Testimonials
    The West Side Federation has worked to create a new form of senior housing – one that would meet the diverse needs of older people and persons living with special needs. The first building, the Marseilles, opened in 1980 and provided 134 independent apartments to low income elderly and handicapped individuals. Over the years, the need for low-income housing has gradually expanded, plus the organization now finds themselves serving frail elderly individuals, older persons living with serious mental illnesses, homeless individuals, persons living with physically handicapping conditions, grandparents raising their grandchildren, and several families. WSF provides housing for 1,800 people throughout over twenty buildings in the Upper West Side, Harlem, Chelsea, and the Bronx. As WSF grew, their open office space became busier, with greatly increased foot traffic and noise. They eventually came to Versare seeking a privacy solution that would divide up work spaces while cutting down on excess room noise. We suggested our Hush Panel DIY Cubicle Partitions, which would allow them to quickly construct any cubicle arrangement. Available in several sizes, our made-in-the-USA Hush Panels can be arranged in just about any fashion by sliding into the aluminum posts. The 2" thick acoustical panels provide excellent sound-dampening capabilities through layers of acoustical fabric and a honeycomb soundtrap core. Hush Panels divide both sight and sound, ensuring office privacy while enhancing employee concentration and productivity. The frosted window option was chosen, to allow light to permeate while maintaining privacy within each workstation. Thanks to Versare DIY cubicle partitions, WSF office staff are now able to work in an organized, quieter environment, and can now focus on continuing the fight to house those needing it. "The panels have arrived and have been set up – just want to tell you that we love them!" exclaimed Maureen from WSF. "This was an open traffic area where we needed some sound buffering and privacy for the team – these fit into our decor really well and were a dream to install! Very best & thanks for your help. I’m sharing your info with a colleague at another building as she’s interested too."
