  • Feel the Vibrations: Controlling Sound and Acoustics

    Product Information
    Excess room noise is a common issue among commercial buildings and open modern spaces. Whether you’re standing in a church, a business or a warehouse, unwanted noises can affect the purpose of the space or even the productivity of your employees. A popular solution to eliminating this noise is by controlling the acoustics within the building. The easiest way to do this is to understand the science behind unwanted noise, how it’s produced, and what materials help control it. When we hear sounds, our eardrums are vibrating as a result of sound energy that is in the air. The sound energy is called sound waves, and they can result in pleasant or annoying sounds. Unwanted sounds are referred to as noise. When it comes to the types of noises we typically hear inside buildings, they are a result of two types of sound paths; airborne-sound and structure-borne sound. Airborne sound is noise that radiates directly into the air, such as voices, machinery, and office equipment, while structure-borne sound travels directly through solid building materials such as footsteps, plumbing, and opening / closing doors. In commercial spaces where there are lots of people and activity, these noises cannot be avoided. Unfortunately, interior buildings are often made out of a variety of materials which are usually selected based on their aesthetic appeal and not their noise-dampening functions. The best solution to controlling sound within buildings are acoustical sound panels which can be utilized to not only control unwanted sound, but be a decorative addition to a building. The ideal acoustic panel is one that will not interfere with the acoustical infill or substrate. A fabric covered panel is best for absorbing unwanted noises, and using Versare’s Sound Stone (Wall) Acoustic Panels provides the option to choose among a variety of colors to fit in with the building’s decor. Versare’s Sound Stone Acoustic Panels contain three layers of sound-dampening materials; the first layer is a durable FR701 acoustical fabric, the second layer is comprised of 100% recyclable 2000 gram density nonwoven polyester and the third layer is a rigid mineral board honeycomb, which acts as a sound trap. These three layers are bonded tightly together to provide a heightened acoustical absorption that eliminates unwanted airborne and structure-borne noises. If you have questions about controlling sound within your space, our experts are here to provide you with the best solutions available. Call us today: 800-830-0210.

  • Portable Display Walls at the Hormel Institute

    Customer Testimonials
    When you think of portable room dividers, you most likely think of utilizing them to separate space or reduce noise. However, the Hormel Institute had something different in mind when they came to Versare looking for a mobile divider that could double as portable display walls for their published articles, photos, and information pertaining to their research. We immediately knew the answer was our Hush Screen Portable Divider, which allows for maximum privacy and sound dampening while also accepting thumb tacks and pushpins on both sides of the acoustical panel fabric. They’re the ideal solution for work stations that provide a place for wall art. Versare Hush Screen The Hormel Institute is a biological research center that is leading the way in cancer research.

They come in 22 sound-dampening acoustical fabric colors and can be built to custom sizes to fit your needs, like we did with The Hormel Institute.

We have found they have been extremely useful in other display applications as well. For example, we use them to hang backdrops for photos and for our vendors to pin product information to. The ease of maneuvering has been invaluable and their lightweight but sturdy design has made storage a breeze. Assembly was easy and we do not need to take them apart to store when they are not being used. They have been the perfect solution for our needs!"

    These days, more and more businesses are turning to unique, open areas, such as lofts and warehouses for office space.

Versare's specialty is solving space-dividing mysteries with an array of portable partitions and room dividers. Our configurable cubicle partitions, in particular, are a perfect option for creating a modern space with cubicles that don’t block employees access to each other, and more importantly, won't break the bank.That’s exactly what Delaware Ship Supply was looking for when they decided to remodel their main office space located inside their 27,500 sq ft warehouse. Delaware Ship Supply was founded in 1904 and grew from a Butcher Shop to selling specialized foods, deck, engine and cabin supplies. They serve ocean going tankers, freighters and container ships throughout Philadelphia, New York and Baltimore.

  • Divide Worship Spaces With Versare Room Partitions

    Customer Testimonials
    Large, open spaces are a common location for our trusty Room Divider 360. From event spaces to meeting rooms, these portable room partitions serve as a means to separate parties, events, booths, lectures, and more. Versare's acoustical partitions are commonly found in places of worship due to their portability and noise-dampening effects. Tawfiq Islamic Center, a space for Muslim religious, educational, and social service programs, utilized Versare room partitions to divide a large space within their center. Using four 5-panel 90” rye dividers and one 7-panel rye divider, they isolated the east side of the room for prayer worship and the west side for a lecture area. Traditionally, Muslims pray five times a day, always facing to the east, or towards the Qibla. The Qibla is fixed among Muslim centers and mosques as the direction of the Kaaba in Mecca, the most sacred site in the world. The mission of the Tawfiq Islamic Center is to promote Muslim individual and community development through social and educational programs in light of the Quran and Sunnah. For this purpose, we recommended the Room Divider 360 because the patented 360º hinge design allowed angled positioning against the wall. These folding room partitions can be quickly folded up if necessary. The ability to choose a noise-dampening acoustical fabric was a perfect choice for Tawfiq Islamic Center in their desire to separate the sound of prayer from the lecture. Versare is happy to be a part of Tawfiq Islamic Center’s practice - maybe we can divide a large room for you!

  • A Day At The Races

    Company News
    Team Versare recently had the pleasure of attending the Autism 5K Run / Walk in Minneapolis. Set around beautiful Lake Calhoun, this event benefits the nonprofit Autism group C.A.D.E. (Children With Autism Deserve Education), which focuses its resources on helping to fund education for those with Autism. Versare's staff raced and walked their little hearts out, and naturally some friendly competition arose, particularly between our graphic designer, Josh, and a shipping professional, Rafael. Josh ran cross country in high school but now finds himself a long way from his glory days on the grass. Rafael, on the other hand, plays soccer often, but was weighed down by skater shoes, a belly full of Coca Cola, and a pretty bad headache. Would the former high school hero win another day? Or would the underdog overcome the odds against him? In the end, the two men finished side by side despite Rafael's having to stop to tie his shoe during the race...a couple times. Nice job, gents. https://autism5k.org/ https://childrenwithautism.org/

  • I Love What You Do For Me, Factory Partitions

    Customer Testimonials
    Factories and warehouses can get pretty messy. Whether it's debris or spray liquids, floors, equipment, and even employees risk getting caught up in a nasty situation. Portable factory partitions and room dividers provide a great option for separating work areas, and to cut down on mess, it's tantamount for factory partitions to be both durable and cleanable. Aside from looking sleek and stylish, our polycarbonate panel options provide the necessary durability required in a factory setting. Toyota Motors recently came to us in search of durable factory partitions to section off a car body cleaning area in a particular auto factory. A cleaning area within their assembly line used an open setup, where body dies are created and cleaned prior to assembly. Since their process involves heavy sprays, Toyota was seeking a factory divider durable enough to withstand cleaning agents. Our polycarbonate panel options are tough enough to handle sprays, and can be quickly toweled down for repeated abuse.We recommended our flagship Room Divider 360, since its patented, fully-rotating hinge design provide far more arrangement versatility than a standard partition. The polycarbonate panels, available in several colors and translucencies, were clear, to provide important visibility within this factory setting. Our aircraft aluminum frames are naturally lightweight and durable enough to withstand any indoor or outdoor sprays. This assembly line partition fits into their factory perfectly. The Room Divider 360 folds up quickly for easy storage when not in use, and the durable polycarbonate is certainly nothing to mess with. "We use this divider in our factory to keep our outer surface body dies separated when they're cleaning the parts," said Ed from Toyota.
