  • Clear Room Dividers Create Sports Center Privacy

    Customer Testimonials
    Is anything as pure and uplifting as children at play? At Versare, we cater to an array of businesses built around the needs of children—daycares, schools, libraries, Sunday schools, amusement parks, etc. One recent client needed help improving their indoor exercise area. A-Game Sports, in New Rochelle, New York, is a 25,000-square-foot indoor sports facility. Their primary goal is to teach children how to improve their athletic skills.Kevin Plein, owner of A-Game, came to us with a simple request: provide the students with a space to work out that would provide privacy and focus but also let potential clients see how the operation worked. We figured some clear room dividers would provide visibility while creating space. Our solution: three clear room dividers in our translucent polycarbonate: one Room Divider 360 in 6’10” x 19’6” and two StraightWalls in 6’10” x 15’6”. Our durable poycarbonate panels are shockproof and spray-cleanable, making them perfect to use around child athletes. The clear room divider's panels are mostly transparent, providing visibility even when closed. Their foldability and lightweight aluminum frames also make them easy to put away when not in use, perhaps when teams of kids need to play instead of individuals. The sliding StraightWall partitions stand straight and open easily, while the accordion-style Room Divider 360 is able to bend and curve to create edges, thus completing the practice space.“We had been struggling with building out a strength and conditioning area which would give our athletes and parents alike a place to work out that gave them privacy but also peaked the curiosity of potential clients passing by the space who may want to know more about what's going on in there,” Plein said. “The clear room dividers were the perfect solution; the room dividers gave us the ability to give our clients working out privacy without completely hiding the activity going on in the space."

  • Creating Visual and Acoustical Privacy In a Coworking Space

    Customer Testimonials
    Stoke is a coworking space located in the heart of Denton, TX. The open office space is home to local remote workers and entrepreneurs looking for a peaceful place to conduct business. The open office layout enhances the community feeling, allowing members to share ideas and network. Adjacent to the main area is a large, open classroom space with a stage. This section is used for lectures, seminars, coding competitions, and any other presentation.The classroom area, formerly a warehouse, features brick walls, garage doors, and large ceilings. While this appreciated aesthetic adds an interesting touch to the space, it also inhibits acoustics. Sound echoes through the open space, and the brick walls don't do much to dampen sound. Plus, there is no door to the area, so sound can escape into the main work area.We provided several of our Sound Stones acoustical panels to help the coworking space dampen classroom sound. Several units were placed next to the stage area, while an array of sound panels were placed near the entrance to help nullify noise by the kitchen area. The vibrant colors add an interesting design element to the room.Our versatile Room Divider 360 was added to the classroom entrance to provide a door whenever needed. The folding divider uses our acoustical fabric to help balance noise and dampen echo. A large 6'10" x 25' configuration was chosen to fit the large, open walkway.Now, the coworking space is able to separate their classroom area from the rest of the spot, enhancing privacy while adding design flair. Lecture sounds won't interfere with the rest of the space, and the portable nature of the room divider means the space can be easily opened or closed off for events and lectures.

  • Dance Studio Partitions Create Private Recital Space

    Customer Testimonials
    Versare’s Room Divider 360 is used to taking center stage. The versatile room divider is our bestseller because of its solid build, modern design, and versatility. So, when D2M Dance Studio in Tracy, California, approached us for a portable partition that would help divide their dance rooms for recitals, we knew what to choose.Debra Spoulos, owner and director of D2M, has hosted classes at her dance studio for 22 years, and was looking for a fresh way to block off a backstage area while providing plenty of room for a stage and audience within the dance rooms. Since recitals require focus and concentration, the studio partitions would not only have to be visual barriers but also dampen acoustics. We worked closely with Soulos to find the right recital walls for her studio.With a lightweight aluminum frame and low-profile casters, our Room Divider 360 is extremely stable, making it perfect for use around active children. Because of its patented 360° hinges, the partition is easy to fold. It’s also highly portable, making it a cinch for Spoulos and her staff to store when the recitals were over. They could also use the room dividers to provide a separate seating area for parents waiting to pick up their children. The dark acoustical fabric option is subtle and minimizes noise with our 0.65NRC rated acoustical panels. Thanks to the Room Divider 360, D2M can maximize the space within their dance studio.Our patented, exclusive rotating hinge design allows our Room Divider 360 to create just about any space. Not only does it make an ideal dance studio partition, but classrooms of any kind can benefit from creating quick, private areas. See our classroom partitions in action at this head start school.

  • Head Start School Uses Versare Classroom Partitions

    Customer Testimonials
    At Versare, we’re no strangers to supplying schools and early childhood education centers with our portable partitions and room dividers. So when Community Action of St. Paul came to us for help organizing one of their Head Start and Early Head Start centers, we jumped at the chance to help them. Versare's tall Room Divider 360 almost touches the ceiling to separate space while balancing acousticsBecause Ramsey County serves over 1400 children, prenatal through five years old, their centers need to be well equipped and properly sectioned off. For instance, the St. Paul center that Versare outfitted includes a dental office and preschool classroom that needed to be separated. The job called for a combination of brightly colored and resilient partitions that worked well for preschool classrooms and sturdy walls that provided soundproofing and privacy.Two years ago, Mark Sundberg, the center’s maintenance and safety supervisor, purchased three VP6s, two in blue and one in beige, to divide waiting and reception areas. This year, they returned to Versare for one of our Room Divider 360s, in Ocean acoustical fabric. The VP6 privacy screen is an affordable but tough single-panel canvas partition with bright colors and rounded plastic corner joints that make it perfectly kid-friendly. These affordable classroom partitions deliver an economical way to separate classrooms.Our number one seller, the Room Divider 360 creates a soundproof wall that was perfect for dividing the center’s dental office from its classroom. Both areas would normally cause quite a bit of noise, but the portable wall’s acoustic properties easily dampened it. And of course both classroom partitions offer complete portability on casters, which makes them a cinch to move and store when not in use.Sundberg was thrilled with the option of a tall partition because it would provide more privacy and cut down on noise transfer between sections of the room. "I love the construction of the product,” Sundberg added. “When we don't need them around, we can just wheel the partitions away." Versare's classroom partitions provide a variety of methods to create instant privacy in the school.

  • Creating Portable Shelters and Classrooms for Flood Relief

    Company News
    In August 2016, prolonged rainfall in Louisiana resulted in catastrophic flooding that submerged thousands of houses, schools, religious institutions and businesses. At the time, it was called a "historic and unprecedented flooding event" and was declared a state of emergency. In the wake of the aftermath, Versare received an urgent call from representatives at Central Middle School, in Baton Rouge, to help relocate displaced students. The school needed to create room dividers to create 27 temporary classrooms for relocated students. Large stadiums provide relief but little privacy for flood victims We jumped to the challenge of designing, fabricating, delivering, and installing all 27 portable classrooms. Our team completed 73 of our most popular school room dividers, the Room Divider 360, transported, and installed them in six days. Known for their durability, arrangement flexibility, and easy mobility, we knew these dividers would be a breeze to ship, set up, and take down as the school needed. Versare's portable partitions allow quick creation of classrooms and enclosures Now, a year later, Hurricane Harvey, has hit Houston and Irma is beating down on Florida. Based on the success of Versare partitions provide flood relief, we’re ready to assist the displaced with discounted products for building temporary shelters for additional privacy, setting up businesses in temporary facilities, establishing mobile places of worship, and providing temporary classrooms for school children. Portable partitions such as our Room Divider 360 allow quick setup and unlimited arrangement flexibility. We’ve increased our on-hand inventory and expanded our facility to be ready on short notice in helping the recovery efforts in a timely manner. We also instituted a hotline to expedite customer inquiries.

  • Configurable Cubicles Bring Order to Church Office

    Customer Testimonials
    Wherever people gather—offices, daycares, gyms, malls, airports, etc.—Versare’s portable partitions, privacy screens, and DIY office cubicles help keep things organized and beautiful. Houses of worship are no different. In the case of Peoples Church in Salem, Oregon, we accomplished two tasks in one: organizing an open office within a house of worship.The open office area, known as their secretarial center, was home to their administrative staff. Because the open area they were revamping was also older, they desired cubicles to spruce it up while providing greater separation, larger spaces, and the ability to expand or reshape. When they came to us, the office was set up with desks out in the open. The small workstations provided little privacy and cramped conditions. Our sales and design staffs teamed up to create a solution using our Versare DIY Cubicles. The configurable nature of Hush Panels allows any arrangement to be created With the flexibility offered by our innovative Hush Panel cubicles, we maximized their space and created and aesthetically pleasing work area where church staff could better serve the congregation.

  • Versare Portable Barricades Protect DC Metro Crowds

    Product Information
    Our portable partitions and barricades are so popular that sometimes our employees spot them on trips. One such chance encounter happened in Washington, D.C., where our Protector Portable Safety Gates can be spotted keeping passengers safe and out of restricted areas.The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority, or Metro, was created in 1967 to provide a balanced regional transportation system for the D.C. area. Construction on the rail system began in 1969, and the first phase of Metrorail began operating in 1976. Metrorail serves 91 stations and serves a population of approximately 4 million people within a 1500 square mile jurisdiction. These bright, visible barricades unfold quickly for emergency situations When a business or organization needs a portable, easy-to-install safety gate, the Protector is an excellent choice. The Protector keeps customers and even employees without proper designation out of restricted areas. It’s constructed of durable metal and is lightweight enough to easily transport. Though it collapses to a tiny 17”, the Protector expands to cover 11’ and can be connected with other units to cover more area. With three highly visible powder coat color options, the Protector is easy to spot.In the case of the D.C. Metro, the yellow and black combo was the color of choice. The Protector was spotted filling multiple jobs, including blocking off wet floors, out-of-order escalators, and walkways. If the Protector can serve the needs of our nation’s capital, surely it can do whatever job you need! These collapsing barricades are lightweight and easy to store

  • DIY Cubicles Create Childrens Play Area in Fitness Center

    Customer Testimonials
    Recently, we shared customized panels that we made for OrangeTheory fitness in Midtown Manhattan (panels that prompted the fitness chain to come to us for a collaboration in several of their other locations.) Now, another fitness franchise has shared their Versare success story.Melissa Mocello, of Central Point, Oregon, was opening a Delta Life Fitness location.Delta Life Fitness is exclusively for women, and Mocello wanted a separate area for mothers to safely drop off their children while they focused on their workouts. We recommended the Hush Panel Configurable Cubicle Partition. With Versare's exclusive DIY cubicles, Mocello could build the children’s area to her specifications, and the optional clear acrylic window option to allow members to look in on their kids without disrupting their exercise routine. And the Hush Panel’s wall-mount bracket could provide additional stability to the partitions, an important aspect for the children’s safety. The slide-and-go nature of the Hush Panel system will allow them to expand or alter the arrangement in the future.Mocello was thrilled with the result our cubicles delivered: "Our mother members love the section of the gym that we partitioned off for their children. They are able to keep a close eye on their kids while still being able to complete their workouts. This was a unique request and only Versare was able to deliver the system we desired."

  • Portable Wall Partitions Create Picture Perfect Gallery

    Customer Testimonials
    Many of the clients we discuss use our products portable partitions to divide their workplaces, provide privacy, or keep certain areas secure. But other clients have more artistic goals in mind. Take Judy and Jennifer, owners of J and J Gallery. They needed dividers that would provide separate space to showcase the multiple independent artists who would be exhibiting work at their gallery. Artists are able to exhibit their paintings on the portable partitions The partitions would need to be attractive enough to be on display at a gallery, but sturdy enough to hold framed artwork. We recommended the Quick-Wall (Folding) Portable Partition. The Quick-Wall is constructed of a sound absorbing honeycomb core, a layer of fiberglass, and a layer of acoustic fabric. This would allow each art wall to not only separate space but dampen sound while displaying art. The partition's acoustical fabric panels are pushpin-accepting The acoustical fabric comes in 24 stylish colors and is perfect for securely pinning objects. It’s framed in a durable but lightweight aircraft aluminum that allows the art wall to hold a tremendous amount of weight, making it more than capable of holding heavy paintings and drawings. These portable art walls separate space while displaying artists' creations Judy and Jennifer were ecstatic over their purchase: "The partitions that Versare were able to provide us, complemented our space beautifully. The partitions are sleek, modern, and have a very up-scale aesthetic look to them. We have already ordered additional partitions!" The Quick-Walls integrate subtly and efficiently in the art gallery

  • How Versare Puts its Acoustical Panels to the Test

    Product Information
    When it comes to portable products, Versare sets the highest standards for quality, including stringently testing the performance of our acoustical panels. Because the key to any successful test is the testing method, we use the ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) to ensure accurate data. We chose ASTM’s technical standards because they have been adopted by many federal, state, and municipal government entities. The ASTM test measures the decay rate of sound, which is inversely related to sound absorption. We measure five ensemble averages containing thirty-two decays each with both the test specimen inside of and removed from a test chamber. The difference between the levels of sound absorption at a given frequency is the level of sound absorption of our acoustical panels.Measuring the NRC of common sound-dampening materials, one can see the advantage of Versare acoustical panelsWe measure both the Sound Absorption Coefficient and the Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC). The Sound Absorption Coefficient is the Sound Absorption per unit area of the test specimen, while the Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC) is a four-frequency average of the Sound Absorption Coefficient. Measurements are made in the ISO-Preferred one-third octave bands from 100 Hz to 5000 Hz. Our tests are conducted in strict accordance with ASTM C 423 – 90a.Sound Stones are wall-mounted acoustical panels rated 0.65NRCOur acoustical fabric has an NRC of 0.65, making it a superior product. You can find our acoustical fabric on premium partitions, like our Room Divider 360, and our Sound Stones (Wall) Acoustical Panels. Use them for your office, home, daycare, church—wherever sound dampening is needed, Versare is there. Whatever you choose, rest assured that you will be purchasing the finest quality for the best value on the market.
