If you’re in a position where you need additional space in your working environment but would like it segregated in unique fashion, you may wish to opt for partitioning. Intelligent use of partitioning in office refurbishment can make your workspace appear to achieve additional height and space. Partitioning is also known as dividing or screening. There are numerous methods of applying this in a way specifically suited to the design you favour. When you choose partitioning, you should give some thought to structural deflection, lateral stability and fire and acoustic performance.
Glass partitioning is the safest option for employers overseeing office refurbishment. They provide a degree of openness and visibility but also maintain sufficient privacy. It also provides boundaries to each work station with sufficient separation between the various departments and divisions. Office refurbishment services offer four methods of partitioning: smooth jointed, timber framed, aluminium framed and frameless glass. There is a range of styles available for glass partitions; they come in either single or double glazed modules and with faceted and curved screens. Both the glass and track are available in a variety of colours to fit with your current colour scheme. Glass sliding and frameless doors are available in numerous variations and can be tailor-made to your requirements. They are compatible with frameless glass partitioning and are appropriate for commercial or interior residential projects.
Aluminium framed partitioning offers a great degree of versatility. It is a relocatable system that can create a wide variety of glazed elevations in addition to conventional solid and with half or full height glazed modules.
With timber framed partitioning, external trim sections and hardwood frames are integrated with an inner framework of tracks and studs to form a relocatable partition system that possesses the aesthetic appeal that timber provides. Solid modules can be formed by using a single or double layer of plasterboard panels fixed on either side of the inner framework with external hardwood trim sections lying between vertically placed joints.
There is just one system not using a major glass portion and that is a smooth jointed solid wall partition. It is an efficient and cost-effective way of segregating your office, providing a solid wall feel with an uninterrupted surface. Typically, this is applied to achieve necessary levels of stability, moisture resistance, impact resistance, fire resistance and sound absorption or reduction. This enables you to create the effect of a smooth wall, even in a work environment without any need for pipe work and cables. To create the appearance of a flat wall when going ahead with this method of office refurbishment, panel joints are taped and filled before being decorated.
