The benefits of an office partition screen.
Studies have shown that although open plan working encourages communication, it can also cause employees to complain over privacy and distractions. Reports suggest that employees find it difficult to concentrate when there is no privacy around individual workstations. At Whitespace we believe that a quick and easy way in which to combat this would be to introduce an office partition screen to the workplace.
An office partition screen is a non-permanent fixture that divides office space. Office screens provide an element of privacy to employees, allowing them to be comfortable while they work. They are also a cost effective way of dividing the space without losing any of the benefits of the open plan layout. Depending on the material used, an office partition screen can also offer sound absorption properties.
Screens are available in both floor standing and desktop options. Desktop screens can be fitted to every desk and are an easy way to create a designated working area, reducing the problem of paperwork spilling over on to someone else’s desk. They can also offer handy space to display phone lists etc. for easy visibility. Alternatively, there are larger floor standing screens which, as well as dividing up space between desks, they can also be used to create areas within the open plan space for meetings etc… allowing meetings to be conducted with some degree of reduced noise and visual distractions.
Whether dividing desk space or an entire office area, office partition screens offer flexibility without the need and expense of building individual offices. They also give you the ability to quickly change the layout and design of your floor space with the minimum of fuss.
