  • Portable Partitions Control Traffic During Airport Construction

    Customer Testimonials
    Located six miles west of Downtown Tampa is the architecturally praised airport, Tampa International. Owned by Hillsborough County Aviation Authority, the airport was designed in the 1960s using a Landside/Airside design that contains a central terminal with people movers (a grade-separated mass transit system) to satellite air terminals and gates. The airport was one of the first to utilize this design and since then a variety of airports across the world have followed suit. Tampa International Airport currently serves 80 non-stop destinations throughout North America, Central America, the Caribbean and Europe. More than twenty major air carrier airlines, four regional airlines and two air cargo carriers serve the airport. It’s also one of only two United States airports that have regularly scheduled charters to four Cuban cities. Portable partitions are commonly used at airports undergoing construction, such as at DFW Airport in Dallas, where partition walls were set up in high-traffic construction areas. Creating portable walls in construction zones is a necessity since foot traffic must be regulated in order to keep up with busy flight scheduling. With it’s ongoing growth and constant heavy travel traffic, Tampa International Airport continues to expand it’s Main Terminal to be more accommodating for travelers. One of the most recent expansions included renovation projects to their moving railways, called airsides. One in particular, Airside A, underwent an overhaul to accommodate more passengers. During the renovation, improvements were made to the airside shuttles, but the construction obstructed passenger flow within the airport. For anyone that’s been traveling during airport construction, the inconvenience can be an issue. Wanting to keep foot traffic moving and not inconvenience their passengers, Tampa International Airport turned to Versare Solutions for portable partitions that could be easily transported or rearranged to control foot traffic. Using the Room Divider 360 folding partition, the airport was able to safely and efficiently divert traffic around the construction areas. Choosing the blue polycarbonate partition panel, the product fit well within the airport architecture. The polycarbonate plastic panels are also durable, shockproof, and spray-cleanable. When the project was complete, the partitions still had a use in security by the TSA. When they are not in use they can easily be folded and stored away.

  • Dividing Large Warehouse Space With Room Dividers

    Customer Testimonials
    Honeywell FM&T specializes in electrical, mechanical, and engineered material components for the United State’s Department of Energy. Located in Kansas City, Missouri, and with several locations in New Mexico, the company has a number of large manufacturing warehouses that contain open floor plans. The benefits of large rooms and spaces is that they feel less restrictive than smaller, more linear floor plans, and can encourage creativity with a variety of layout options. However, the extra breathing room can also become a nuisance, with products and departments overlapping, creating a somewhat chaotic state depending on the number of departments sharing the space. Honeywell was looking for a solution to divide and block off multiple areas of their warehouse for different manufacturing tasks and jobs. They knew they wanted large room dividers but were also looking for partitions that were lightweight and could easily be placed in multiple areas. Honeywell particularly wanted their partitions to be portable, to provide arrangement flexibility depending on the number of people per job area. Our recommendation was the popular Room Divider 360, which can accommodate heights up to 7'6", thus maximizing the available space that Honeywell has in their warehouses. The aircraft aluminum frame provides the light weight they desired, while the collapsible nature of these folding room dividers makes portability and storage a breeze. The full-sized panels on each end of these dividers provide enhanced stability compared to other partitions on the market, which is necessary in bustling work areas. The Room Divider 360 can be configured to any space and shape so that each warehouse can be broken up as necessary. For customers looking to divide a large open space, Versare’s Room Divider 360 is ideal for warehouses, classrooms, exhibitions and more. Give us a call today to learn how our partitions can work for you.

  • Acoustical Wall Building for Podcast Pros

    Product Information
    Do you remember the days of bulky Walkmans and disc players? It may be a surprising reminder that the Walkman was invented only 35 years ago, though many of us oldies have observed this technology come and go during our lifetime, evolving into smaller, more efficient, and more complex devices. Gadgets come and go, but good acoustical control transcends tech. We have seen the emergence of music, video and broadcasting on-demand. Almost everybody we know has a device that carries a music library that would make most professional musicians blush. Listeners can stream music, video, television, radio and any other digital media twenty-four hours a day. With the ability to stream over Wi-Fi or data plans, we have witnessed the resurgence of podcasts. Even more, technology has enabled podcasters to create media without having to leave their home office or apartment. iTunes alone has more than 250,000 podcasts currently streaming through the network. Although advancements in technology have taken some of the heat off of the need for a professional recording booth, in order to get a well-recorded podcast with proper sound, podcasters need more than their mobile device. The need for professional recording equipment is still there and many podcasters face the issue of affordability. Just some of the equipment needed for a professional recording booth are microphones, preamplifiers, analog-to-digital interfaces, and recording software. But the most overlooked and important piece of all this equipment is actually the recording space. That’s right, the acoustics of the recording space are probably even more important to the sound of a podcast than the mic and preamp. The good news is that you can dramatically improve the acoustics of just about any space with the right material. Ideally the space in which you record should be a “dead space”, that is, a space where most of the sound made by your mouth is caught by the microphone in front of you, and the rest is absorbed, not reflected, by the surfaces around you. Many home recording spaces have sought Versare partitions and sound panels for affordable acoustical control. Since much of the echo that may be heard on a recording comes from walls closest to the microphone, it's a sensible solution to place your partition or sound panel close to your recording area. Many podcasters have had great success by utilizing Versare’s VersiPanel and/or VersiFold acoustical wall to create a concave divider that curves around the back of the mic at a distance of about a foot. This very quickly absorbs much of the sound coming from your mouth, and prevents it from bouncing back at the mic, causing echo. The VersiPanel and VersiFold dividers are constructed with acoustical ribbed fabric and heavy foam cores. They feature heavy stitch line construction versus tradition glued systems. They also come with powerful 20lbs rare-earth magnets to connect multiple panels together. This is a perfect solution for creating an acoustical wall within your studio, or using as an acoustical backdrop on a stage or behind a podium. Versare’s acoustical product line has been rigorously tested and received a .60 NRC rating from an independent third party lab. It's no wonder these heavy-duty partitions are used so frequently for podcasting and voice recording.

  • Affordable Accordion Door Alternatives

    Product Information
    Most people know of accordion doors from seeing them in hotels, schools and churches. These partitions became popular throughout the 1980s by offering a way to create a temporary wall between two spaces. The panels collapse and expand (hence the "accordion" name) and run along a ceiling-mounted rail. They offer a convenient way to divide space without having a permanent wall. The problem is that installation of these track-mounted divider systems can be cumbersome and expensive. Anything attached to a ceiling is often covered by local building codes and associated fees. Many codes won't allow anything close to a sprinkler head, and others regulate HVAC circulation. Track-mounted accordion doors simply don't provide the same value as Versare partition walls. With starting prices close to $1,000/foot (just for the accordion doors), expect a possible increase of $30,000 – $100,000 to move sprinklers, improve HVAC, or strengthen the ceiling. As you can see, cost becomes a big factor. The Operable Wall provides more benefits at a fraction of the price of a track-mounted partition system. A portable or wall-mounted room divider is not only more cost-effective, but can also be easily relocated, in case the room situation needs to change or a different arrangement is desired. Versare portable room dividers collapse quickly for easy storage, while build-in panel locks make transport a cinch. Versare wall-mounted partitions function similarly to accordion doors, but without the track mount. The space between the divider and the ceiling ensures proper air flow and ventilation while still providing the same amount of privacy. Our Operable Wall system uses special 2" thick panels, greatly reducing sound and increasing room privacy. With dozens of size, color, and panel material options, we offer something to fit just about any situation.

This growing church community used a large common area to create learning and activity centers for children.

Lifechurch was looking for an economical and quick solution to creating classroom space. The large open area initially presented an organizational challenge Lifechurch was looking for an immediate solution, and since they needed to order several units, price was a concern.

The portable classroom dividers have since transformed their open space into a comfortable learning area. "I ordered a bunch of room dividers a couple weeks back for my church. I just wanted to thank Liz so much for making that order happen in such a timely efficient manner. Our previous vendor had dropped the ball at the last minute, and getting those dividers to us on time, making sure there was a lift gate on the truck, and tracking and checking on the shipment was awesome. You really came through for us and helped me to make sure over 60 kids had a comfortable, safe, fun space to learn and play." - Kim Sanders, Lifechurch Southfield

  • Versare Cubicles Provide Affordable Workspace Privacy

    Customer Testimonials
    Non-profits face the same privacy issues as for profit businesses in the work space. In addition non-profits have limited budgets which are usually not dispersed for office upgrades. For one employee of an independently managed community blood center, she found herself in need of an inexpensive cubicle partition system that would not only provide workspace privacy but also reduce noise. The Hush Panel system easily creates workstation privacy. Being a non-profit, the organization did not want to use their resources on a cubicle system that would be heavy, difficult to install, and out-of-budget.

These panels can be set-up or taken down quickly by sliding panels and posts together in any desired arrangement.“My office is in an open area of the building and a privacy screen was needed. After looking at several options, I liked the Versare's cubicle divider with the clear panels on top. The color options and the fact that they are light weight was an additional plus. As an added bonus, they simply slide together, no need for tools! It took about 5 minutes to put two panels together. My company is now looking at ordering another set of panels for another office area. These would also work great in a home environment for someone needing an inexpensive option for dividing up a room or adding a privacy area.
