In recent years open plan offices have become increasingly popular amongst business’ the world over. Following on from the examples set by the likes of Google and Microsoft we came to believe that working openly would lead to increased productivity and more social work environments.
However, having implemented open office environments many companies are beginning to see that they aren’t all they are cracked up to be. In fact, recent studies suggest that open plan offices don’t actually boost productivity as much as first imagined. Glass partitions however, are an excellent solution to the potential pitfalls companies are facing due to this previous trend. Let us explain:
Despite the decline of privacy and rise in employee camaraderie the open plan office trend continues to take companies across the world by storm. For breaking office barriers and promoting open space working environments we can thank the likes of Google and Apple who have sang praises regarding significant improvements in their employee’s working day.
To some extent we can see why companies have opted for a change in the way their employees are able to work. Open plan environments tear down hierarches where the big bosses, who had once sought after private corner offices with the best views, mingle amongst the heart of the business; their employees.
Not only can a company benefit from maximising its space but it can simultaneously minimise costs. Employers and designers across all areas of business had hoped to revitalise a collaborative culture encouraging communication and spontaneous micro meetings amongst staff.

So you know you need a moveable partition wall. But you find the options available baffling!
We sympathise. It’s not like nipping down to your local supermarket to buy dinner. A moveable wall system is likely to be a one-off purchase but with a several technical points to get your head around. Below we outline some of the main things to consider to help you make the best decision.
But before we get down to the nitty-gritty lets run over the benefits of moveable wall systems. Identifying which benefits are most important to you will help inform your decision.
What do Hannibal Lector in Silence of the Lambs, the cobra in the Well of Souls (Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark) and Magneto in X-Men 2 have in common?
Yes: you’ve guessed it! They were all screened behind glass (or glass effect) partitions to protect the other characters in their respective films.
One of the key considerations for any company looking to install a folding partition or movable wall system is the level of soundproofing they require, which in turn determines the acoustic performance they need their partition product to achieve.
So what exactly is sound, how is it measured and how can it impact your decision on which partition system to install within your building?
A partition wall system is a flexible way to get the most out of your commercial space. It gives you the freedom to choose between wide-open space one day, and smaller distinct spaces the next. In fact you don’t even need to switch on alternate days – commercial wall dividers can normally be opened or closed in a matter of seconds.
So a boardroom can be extended to accommodate a larger meeting, a nursery can close off part of a room for sleep-time, and a hotel can split a function room in two. But with so many uses how do you spec up the right movable wall partitions for you?
These days many businesses particularly within the entertainment industry need to be able to use their premises for many different purposes to make the business a viable one. For example, pubs and hotels may need to adapt their reception areas to accommodate different functions on the same day. A wedding party at the same time as a business conference for example.
Versatility on event space is vital in order to be able to accommodate as many types and sizes of functions as possible. The flexibility of the usable space is a big part of that. There are so many public spaces, exhibition centres, auditoriums and educational spaces where moveable folding walls can be used to make the space as versatile as possible. We have all seen these types of wall in public venues:
