  • 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.

  • 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

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.

  • 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!
