  • 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. The lightweight aluminum frame and low-profile casters offer greater ease-of-use than unwieldy steel dividers on the market. 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. Our large assortment of hospital and clinic room dividers will be at home in any health care environment, while our multitude of fabric choices guarantee easy integration anywhere.

  • 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."

  • Creative Cubicle Partitions Cut Corporate Costs

    Customer Testimonials
    Large renovations usually result in the teardown and rebuilding of walls within a space. This was the case when Pittsburgh Corning, a global manufacturing company, was in the process of renovating their corporate offices. This unique company, known for creating glass block and cellular glass insulation, was looking for a creative cubicle partition system to create individual office spaces for their employees. Pittsburgh Corning knew what they were looking for: tall office cubicle partitions that could fit within their 10’ ceilings and were self-supporting. Many cubicle partition systems on the market require wall brackets, which wasn't an option for their offices. After little success of finding what they were looking for from other businesses, Pittsburgh Corning serendipitously landed on the Hush Panel DIY Cubicles from Versare. The Hush Panels are modern configurable cubicle partitions designed to give businesses a flexible and affordable alternative to standard cubicle systems. Versare Hush Panels are capable of standing alone while providing excellent sound-dampening features with the acoustical fabric option. The panels and posts slide together for quick, tool-less construction and can be arranged into a variety of shapes. The infinitely customizable nature of Hush Panels allows them to be easily reconfigured and built upon as an organization grows. Three different choices of window styles provide several visibility options. “Versare partitions saved me money in place of installing walls. The panels were two-thirds the cost of the first partition bid I had received,” said Pittsburg Corning. “The Hush Panels were easy to install, with no fastening of the brackets and were the exact height and color I was looking for.” The next time you’re looking for your dream partitions reach out to Versare, and we’ll gladly show you how you can save money on your next big renovation.

  • Creating Instant Acoustic Walls Quickly and Affordably

    Product Information
    Versare recently completed a project where a theater was temporarily converted into six separate rooms. Each room was required to be set-up to accommodate both an audience and a public speaker, with acoustic walls separating space and controlling sound. The main issue was being able to provide a product that was portable, allowing the space to be re-converted into a theater at will, and effectively dampening the sound of the individual speakers from the other five adjacent rooms. Given that the ceiling height was 12’ high, this created a complex problem for a portable wall system, since accommodating high ceiling areas often require our semi-permanent wall-mounted partition systems. Our solution was to combine two of or products, the Room Divider 360, which is a mobile folding divider, and our ceiling-hung Sound Stone acoustic panels. This combination provided a floor-to-ceiling sound-dampening solution, while providing the flexibility of convertible space. The ceiling-hung Sound Stones acoustic panels hung vertically from the ceiling and provided 4' of coverage. Hanging in this fashion allowed them to act as effective alternatives to acoustic walls when the 7'6" Room Divider 360s were placed directly underneath. This combination provided effective and affordable floor-to-ceiling sound control. Most importantly, this particular acoustic wall arrangement provided flexibility and portability not found in large, track-mounted accordion door solutions. Opening, closing, and storing the room dividers is a cinch, so converting the theater space only takes minutes. Check out our full range of acoustic panels and see how they compliment our room dividers and portable partitions.

  • Airport Dividers Aid Organization in Construction Zones

    Customer Testimonials
    Construction in airports is becoming a common sight for travelers, with many old airport terminals across the country getting updated and remodeled. While it’s great to see the travel industry expanding, travelers want to quickly get through a construction site and to their destination without being held up by restriction zones or closed-off areas. Within airport construction zones, the usage of airport dividers and privacy screens has become a necessity for maintaining organization within a changing environment. In 2010, the Dallas/Fort Worth Airport set up a seven-year construction project called TRIP. The terminal renewal and instruction project is a complete rehaul of their terminals including the addition of shops and restaurants. DFW Airport continues to be one of the busiest airports in the United States, which means that traffic has not slowed down during their construction. However, when you find yourself in a space with a lot of people, announcements, and moving parts, an ongoing construction site can put a damper on the customer’s experience. That’s why DFW airport was looking for a room divider that they could use on in their construction zones that would provide sound-dampening features as well as a place to hang materials regarding their construction progress and future plans. Their needs lead them to order dozens of Versare Room Divider 360s and StraightWall Partitions to properly section off the construction zones within their terminals. DFW Airport chose the maximum panel height of 7’6” for full coverage of their construction zones, including the areas that contained tall ceilings. Our most popular divider, the Room Divider 360, is a portable divider that can bend to cover angles and corners. Our StraightWalls are great for covering terminal hallways, as they maintain their straight lines regardless of length chosen. Choosing the acoustical fabric option for these airport dividers provided enhanced noise-dampening and the ability to pushpin notifications and signage directly to the dividers. DFW Airport has been operating since 1973 and remains the third busiest airport in the world by aircraft movements and 10th in the world by foot traffic. When it opened, the airport only had four terminals. Today, DFW Airport has five terminals and 165 gates.

  • Partition Panel Styles Explained

    Product Information
    When choosing a room divider, the first thing that comes to mind might be size, portability, and ease-of-use. However, most people probably don’t think about the most important aspect of a room partition: panel material. The panel material affects the sound reduction levels, vibration / shock absorbency, flexibility, mobility, and a variety of other key features that separate a high-quality room divider from an average one. No two materials are the same, and when searching for your next space divider for your office, warehouse, or personal room, you’ll want to be familiar with the benefits and differences of the four most common options Versare offers. Acoustical Fabric Panels Available in over twenty colors, pushpin-accepting Acoustical Fabric is by far our most popular panel choice. This partition panel style uses a sound-absorbing honeycomb core surrounded by two outer layers of fiberglass. The core and fiberglass are covered in FR701 Acoustical Fabric, which is 100% polyester high-performance fabric. This panel option is also rated Class A firesafe and passes E84 fire tests. Versare StraightWall featuring acoustical fabric panels Our Acoustical Fabric is incredibly durable and what you would find around speaker grills and in areas that require site and sound control. Offering superior noise-dampening, these acoustical partition panels are rated 0.50 NRC (Noise Reduction Coefficient). Enclose workstations with sound-dampening acoustical fabric panels Polycarbonate Panels Polycarbonate plastic materials are known for withstanding temperature ranges from -40°F to +240°F. This is a result of their thermoplastic makeup that land polycarbonate panels among the toughest types of partitions available. These durable partition panels are made up of 18mm of fluted polycarbonate 2700 (g/M^2) which is ideal for high use, outdoors, machining areas, and places with a versatile environment. Polycarbonate partition panels offer a variety of translucencies If the area also has a high noise influx, the polycarbonate material will provide a sound reduction of 20 DB. In addition, polycarbonate materials have a high resistance to heat and cold, containing a flammability classification ASTM-E-84 Class A. Wall-Mounted Polycarbonate StraightWall in opaque Opal Woodgrain Laminate Panels Laminate partition panels are comprised of the same honeycomb core construction as our acoustical fabric partitions, but with a smooth, durable laminate exterior layer. Our laminate panels are available in several shades of faux woodgrain, giving these partitions a very unique and modern look. The laminate exterior is waterproof and spray-cleanable. Our Room Divider 360 in Natural Cherry Woodgrain Laminate Ribbed Acoustical Fabric (VersiPanel, VersiFold series) Ribbed acoustical fabric is made up of a low-density polyethylene (LDPE) foam core, with excellent sound-dampening qualities and an NRC rating of 0.65. LDPE has a long list of valuable features including durability and flexibility, as well as being resistant to water, shock, UV, and vibration. Our VersiPanel and VersiFold partitions exclusively offer this panel material. The ideal place for ribbed acoustic panels are areas that require more sound control than site control such as office work areas, home recording studios, portable classrooms and temporary meeting rooms. If you have questions about which type of panel fabric is best for your needs and space, ask one of Versare’s experts, we’re here to help you!

  • Charitable Organization's Office Divider Makes Meetings Easy

    Customer Testimonials
    Wheelchairs 4 Kids is an organization that provides wheelchairs, home / vehicle modifications, and assistive and therapeutic equipment to children with physical disabilities. They strive to provide social inclusion for those children through events, activities, and increased awareness and outreach. This charitable organization was looking for a way to section off a private meeting area within their large, open office space. They came to Versare requesting an office divider that would not only separate their large space but could also be easily collapsed and stored away when meetings were not taking place. Being a non-profit, having a cost-efficient solution was a necessity. When clients are looking for this type of divider we always suggest our flagship product, the Room Divider 360. This versatile office divider has a fully-rotating hinge design allowing for more arrangement options than commonly-found partitions, which only allow 180º movement per panel. In addition, Room Divider 360s quickly collapse to be stored away when not in use. Transport locks at the base of the unit keep these dividers in the collapsed position when moved and stored. The acoustical fabric panels come in a variety of colors to seamlessly blend with different room styles and themes. Space division is a common application for our most popular partition, the Room Divider 360. Large spaces that are the center point for a variety of meetings and activities can quickly become crowded and noisy. Portable room dividers provide an easy solution for splitting up a room when necessary and rearranging back to open space when the division isn’t needed.
