Usefulness of Office Partitions

18th February 2014

Partitions can act as screen barriers by breaking up the office into sections, and can be made of a variety of different materials. But why do we need partitions?

Privacy
A partition can help increase privacy by providing a barrier that makes employees less visible to one another. This is great if the staff in question work in an environment that regularly has customers walking through, or if they may be working with sensitive information.

Security
It is vitally important to keep your data safe and secure at all times, particularly in heavily regulated industries such as financial institutions. Partitions will help increase the security, as it protects your desk and your computer monitor from being seen by prying eyes, while at the same time being small enough to not seem invasive.

Noise Reduction
Certain partition screens are made of noise cancelling material, which really helps for private study areas, or meeting areas where concentration is essential. This is also useful for offices that have been converted and have not been properly soundproofed, for example; a converted office in a bustling city centre.
