  • Ditch the Track: Accordion Doors Vs Operable Walls

    Product Information
    The need to divide large room space is common in pretty much every industry, so naturally, a large variety of space-saving solutions exists. Accordion doors (or track-mounted door systems) are a classic method of controlling space by hanging suspended from an overhead track on the ceiling. Accordion walls expand and collapse in a folding fashion, hence the name. Versare's Operable Wall is a wall-mounted, floor-based partition, with both accordion (folding) or telescoping (sliding) panel options. This wall-mounted system requires no track and provides a perfect solution for spaces requiring up to 12' high coverage. The Operable Wall is a low-cost alternative to expensive track-mounted Accordion Wall systems, or perfect for areas that can't accept a track system. Track-mounted accordion doors are costly and dated. Generally, both accordion doors and Operable Walls are added to existing spaces. In most cases it’s difficult to add a track to support an accordion door setup. The Operable Wall relies only on the floor and wall for support. Also, when adding a ceiling track for an accordion door, it may be necessary to have a building permit, or engineering support to ensure the ceiling can safely accommodate a track. Also, when installing a track for the Accordion Wall, this divides the ceiling space, which often requires an assessment for proper fire sprinkler and HVAC coverage. Versare's Operable Wall requires no ceiling track. Versare’s Operable Wall relies on a wall-mounted system which eliminates the issues associated with track-mounted systems. This product is considered FF&E, furniture fixture and equipment, so does not require permits, engineering, or HVAC assessments. The unique wall mounting bracket enables the collapsed panel system to rotate and tuck neatly against the wall. Unlike accordion doors, no built-in enclosure is required. Versare's wall-mounted partitions collapsed Basically, Versare’s wall-mounted room dividers offer an effective and cost-efficient solution to save money while dividing your space when heights of up to 12’ are necessary. Unlike complex track-mounted accordion door systems, this space-saving product installs easily, is made in the USA, and is readily available for immediate shipment.

  • Cheers to Craft Brewery Crowd Control Barricades

    Customer Testimonials
    There's never been a better time to be a beer lover. With craft beers, breweries, and general beer appreciation taking this great nation by storm, Americans are experiencing the beer world in ways never before possible. These days, the average American lives within 10 miles of a brewery. As with any rapidly-expanding industry, obstacles also quickly arise. Craft brewers face many challenges, such as access to market, cost of raw materials and ingredients, and ultimately operation costs in a highly-regulated and highly-taxed industry. Part of the challenge for craft brewers is creating a facility that draws in locals to help drive their brand. In establishing the proper facility, brewers have two basic needs to fulfill: (a) an operation to produce the product, and (b) a facility to attract locals to sample the product. This type of environment requires unique crowd control products, which is why more and more craft breweries are coming to Versare for portable barricades, partitions, and other simple, affordable crowd control solutions. Local Minneapolis brewery Able came to Versare looking for unique crowd control barricades and portable gates to help control customer traffic both indoors and outdoors. Versare was able to provide Able with its simple but effective Protector Expanding Gates to block traffic between the lounge area and the brewing process. These folding gates are lightweight, durable, and collapse easily for quick storage. Able additionally ordered several of our Portable Powder-Coated Barricades to help organize outdoor traffic. The red option was chosen for both barricade styles in order to draw attention to particular areas while fitting the modern aesthetics of the area. We love raising a glass to local businesses and are just as happy as Able with the end result. This Minneapolis craft brewery received attractive and highly-portable crowd control solutions at affordable prices - something we can all drink to. Our reward? Sampling their amazing craft brews, of course.

  • Event Center Partitions Hide Catering Carts Quickly

    Customer Testimonials
    Remember the scene in The Wizard of Oz when the Wizard himself orders Dorothy and her friends to, “Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain”? Well, perhaps if he had hidden behind one of Versare’s sturdy room dividers, he would have a much better time eluding them. When Earle Brown Heritage Center, in our very own city of Minneapolis, needed to hide their wizards at work on food and beverage carts, they came to us. The Center hosts large events, like weddings and meetings, that require a formal setting. Leaving beverage and food carts out took away from the sophistication of the atmosphere and gave the setting a cluttered look. But they had no way of changing that. So they asked us to help them find a portable event center partition that could help them hide the carts. They chose Versare because we have a wide selection of large dividers that would hide multiple carts and allow people to work behind them. Enter the Room Divider 360, the hero in many of our client testimonials. This versatile and portable partition is available in a polycarbonate plastic that is easy to clean, in case of food or drink splashes, by either wiping or hosing down. It is also available in a variety of heights, including the 6’10” option chosen by the event center. This height allows employees to complete their jobs while hidden away from event attendees, making it a perfect event center partition. In the end, the Earle Brown Heritage Center was ecstatic with the choice of the Room Divider 360 because it is an easily moved and folded partition that is a breeze to clean and hides both employees and carts during events. Another happy customer thanks to the magic of Versare.

  • Client Spotlight: Santuario De San Martin Catholic Church Partitions

    Customer Testimonials
    My name is Mario Herrera and I am a catechist and involved parishioner at Santuario De San Martin Catholic Church located in Albuquerque, New Mexico. In the past decade the community of our church has grown to 900+ parishioners. The church was hand built by a community of volunteers over 30 years ago. Our original sanctuary had grown to small and only fit approximately 400 parishioners. The church also did not have any teaching space and had to teach in the pews of the church. In the last 3 years, the new growing community has worked hard and has built a new sanctuary that can accommodate 900+ parishioners. San Martin has become the fastest growing Catholic church in the city and has 568 children enrolled in religious education. Now the children will fully occupy the space of the old sanctuary. This area is now the gathering space for religious education, meeting areas and events. The church's circular shape provided a challenging layout. We were now challenged on how to use this space. Our challenge was one big room, no walls, a lot of children talking and being distracted by the other groups of children all trying to receive their religious education. Although we are a very large group, we are also a very poor community. Our budget was tight and we had to solve the problem on how to create meeting room space in the old sanctuary. The main goal was not to permanently alter the current look and feel of the existing architecture. But be able to create meeting space and try to eliminate sound and distraction. After doing research on room dividers I came across Versare’s Room Divider 360. These walls had everything we needed, and on top of it all Versare gave us 110% Satisfaction, from beginning to receiving and now every day we use these walls. Versare went above and beyond and made sure that we were able to meet our goals and our budget. When comparing all other wall dividers prices, safety, warranty, mobility and looks which were other factors we took into major consideration. Versare blessed us with the best in all these categories. There was no comparison that Versare was the best. We went with (5)-7’.6” x 25’, (1)-7’.6” x 8-6”’,(1)-7’.6” x 14’. These portable walls allowed us to create 6 large meeting spaces with the configuration of our gathering area. And when you say God does things for a reason. These walls fit just right in our gathering space and look as if they have always been a part of the environment and architecture. The church partitions are very nice and, being that they are on casters, are very safe and sturdy, and children have no way to push these room dividers over. The mobility of them is very smooth and they easily glide in position and are able to configure quickly. The church partitions helped us to create meeting areas for all our religious classes and also helped to reduce sound in a large room. These walls have allowed the kids to concentrate in their classes and not be distracted by others outside the meeting area. We have also found that they are very quick to fold up and store away when they are not needed and even help to be used as storage walls and hide things behind them in the corner. We are also looking forward to utilizing them for a upcoming arts and crafts show to create divider booths and use them for art work and displays. There are many possibilities that we are foreseeing and enjoying them we are. We are very grateful and Thankful and are proud to have made a great choice in a great product. Thanks again and God Bless, Mario Herrera, San Martin De Porres Mario, thanks for the kind words - we're always up for a challenge and excited to hear your church partitions are working out so well!

  • Church Dividers Provide Instant Classroom Spaces

    Customer Testimonials Product Information
    Folks often come to Versare in search of truly versatile room dividers that can accommodate a variety of room shapes. Not every space is a perfect square, so a more creative approach is often required. The Room Divider 360, for example, features our patented 360° rotating hinges, providing a full range of rotation to each panel. This kind of arrangement flexibility allows a number of setup options that other partitions on the market simply can't offer. The San Martin de Porres Church of Albuquerque, NM was looking for a creative solution to sectioning off a common area into Sunday school classes for different age groups. Members were seeking church room dividers that could reduce sound, provide portability (to be removed from the area for religious ceremonies), and preserve the ambience and aesthetics of the space. Our solution was the Room Divider 360. Its unique hinge system allows for a perfect fit in odd spaces, like the church space's half-oval. For the panel material, our noise-dampening acoustic fabric in Rye was chosen to control acoustics and match the interior of the church space. Thanks to the Room Divider 360, San Martin de Porres can hold multiple Sunday school classes at once during services without interrupting each other. “We are so happy and excited,” said Mario H. “We are thankful to Versare for all of their help during this project, and their great pricing! God does things for a reason and these dividers are perfect!” We're definitely feeling pretty blessed right now - for more details, be sure to check out Mario's full testimonial about their Versare church dividers.

  • Breaking Waves: Sound-Dampening Partitions Demystified

    Product Information
    In addition to creating visual privacy, our sound-dampening partitions offer enhanced acoustic control. There are ways of measuring the acoustical control of a partition, but it can be innitially difficult to understand. Acronyms like NRC and STC may have you thinking things like WTF, but relax - we've created a quick guide to help you better understand acoustics and how our sound-dampening partitions work. It’s time to break down some barriers (metaphorically speaking, of course) and explain what those letters mean, along with the difference between sound blocking and sound absorption. Sound Transmission Class (STC) Sound Transmission Class, or STC, measures how much sound a partition blocks. Unlike your cholesterol or putt putt score, a higher number is usually better when it comes to STC. Sound Transmission Class gives a general idea of how much sound a partition can stop, and it’s the most common sound reduction measurement. However, it cannot be completely relied upon because the human ear responds more to certain frequencies than others. Dampen sound frequencies like your coworker's humming of Lady Gaga tunes Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC) Noise Reduction Coefficient, or NRC, measures how much sound a partition absorbs. NRC is used to gauge partitions that are created to absorb (not block) sound. The NRC rating for sound absorbing partitions ranges from 0 (perfectly reflective) to 1 (perfectly absorptive). Think of NRC as the percentage of sound waves that come into contact with the partition without being reflected back (Ex: NRC of .2=20%). NRC ratings depend on a number of variables, like wall conditions and ceiling height.NRC vs. STC You’ve probably gathered by now that the main difference between NRC and STC is that STC gauges materials that block sound, while NRC gauges materials that absorb sound. Versare’s dynamic line of portable partitions includes materials that absorb and block sound. Partitions with dense cores—such as our polycarbonate cores—block sound (high STC rating), while those with lower density cores—like our honeycomb/fiberglass combinations—absorb sound (high NRC rating). Acoustical fabric vs reflective polycarbonate Still feeling overwhelmed? Our team of experts can help you choose the right sound-dampening system to suit your needs. Whether you’re forming makeshift classrooms for an adult learning center, building a (quiet from the outside) Vacation Bible School play land, or providing some much-needed peace to employees, we have you covered.

  • Set Phasers to "Fun" With Versare Event Space Dividers

    Customer Testimonials
    They had us at Laser Tag. Event centers are great spaces for all ages, whether families are looking to have fun, or businesses are teambuilding. The versatile nature of these activity centers is a perfect fit for Versare, as we offer a variety of event space dividers to accommodate any situation. When dealing with clients who operate entertainment and event spaces, a common request is to divide space while managing acoustics. Family-oriented areas often encourage rowdy youngsters, so partitions with superior acoustical control are of the utmost importance. Enter Ultra Zone Laser Tag, a laser tag and event center that offers parties, team building, and more in Madison, WI. They wanted to divide their large party room into two parts to allow for multiple groups to use the room. To provide an enjoyable experience to their customers, they would need a panel that absorbed sound while letting light through. Our solution was the Hush Panel System. Sleek and stylish, the 2" thick sound-dampening panels enhance not only aesthetics but also acoustics. The configurable nature of Hush Panels allowed several units to be linked together to fit the room measurements perfectly. Black fabric was chosen to integrate subtly with the environment, while fluted polycarbonate window options were chosen to provide light and maintain a small sense of openness between the divided areas. Thanks to the Hush Panel, Ultra Zone was able to quickly set up their space in a professional manner with our stylish event space dividers. They were also pleased with the color available, the level of sound absorption, and the window. The ultimate result was a more professional and versatile party room, allowing for one or more groups to use the room as needed. Adults are able to enjoy the sitting area while children wildly celebrate a birthday party on the other side, neither group being disturbed in the process.

  • Splash Proof Dividers Make a Splash In Wetlab Classroom

    Customer Testimonials
    Most of our clients use our room dividers for one simple purpose: to quickly and easily divide space. Sometimes an additional feature may be requested from our partitions, such as the ability to be spray cleaned. Versare dividers can meet the needs of any environment, which is why, in addition to our sound-absorbing fabric panels, we alternatley offer splash proof dividers with polycarbonate panels. These durable and stylish panels can be spray-cleaned and easily dried in messier areas requiring frequent clean-up. Cross Connection Environmental, a center specializing in backflow prevention and code compliance training courses, came to us with a need to not only divide their classroom training space, but also required room dividers that could withstand a large amount of water splashes. Specializing in backflow prevention training courses, the center uses a large classroom area with a wet lab for students to learn technical aspects of backflow and code compliance. Their main concern was that the classroom area was too often getting splashed with water, so a portable partition was necessary to divide the space when necessary. We decided the Room Divider 360 was the perfect choice for dividing their classroom space, since its unique 360° hinge allows the center more arrangement flexibility than standard 180° hinges. Polycarbonate panels were chosen for their ability to take repeated splashes without flinching. The semi-translucent green option was chosen for its ability to let in some light and to match the company's logo. The result was a durable, effective splash proof divider that integrated perfectly into their work space. "We were in need of a waterproof divider as we offer two sessions in the same week and we needed to seperate our classroom from our wetlab one day of the week. Dan provided us with an affordable solution to our problem. Our wall was built and shipped quickly. We love our new wall and so do our students and proctors."

  • Versare Custom Partitions as Mosque Dividers

    Product Information
    Contemporary mosques often follow a rule of separating men and women during religious ceremonies. Designated spaces for women in mosques are not outlined in the Koran, which forbids barring anyone from entering a place of worship, but they arose during the Ottoman empire. Because of architectural limitations, some mosques and Islamic multipurpose centers face the challenge of adding walls or mosque dividers to divide gender-specific areas. In some cases, common rooms must be left open to allow for certain occasions, but divided for religious ceremonies. In others, budgets do not allow for walls to be built. mosque divider w/ printed panels Versare offers portable partitions in a variety of sizes and configurations to accommodate virtually any application or budget requirement. Our products come in a variety of sound-dampening levels, styles, opacities, materials, and sizes. Since we hand-build our premium room dividers, we also offer custom configurations to alter non-traditional spaces. In one case, Versare LLC partnered with Projects Furniture Company in Dammam, Saudi Arabia, to create a product that would adapt to the specific requirements of the region. The custom Room Divider 360 was 5.5 meters long and 1.8 meters high, with a clear polycarbonate viewing area on top (taking up about 1/3 of the panel) and a white laminate bottom. This product can be used both to demarcate gendered spaces and to create separate rooms within the main space of a mosque or gathering place.
