Social distancing measures have dramatically changed our everyday living including places of work. Many companies are “reworking” office spaces in response to the pandemic but also to alleviate employees’ fears of returning to office life. Before the pandemic, many offices had moved away from the “cubicle farm” to an open concept layout. While the open concept was thought to be beneficial for improving collaboration it has now become problematic for social distancing standards. Many companies are now asking themselves “How do we adapt existing office layouts to promote social distancing?” A simple cost-effective way to divide office workspace is using partition walls.
What are the types of office partition walls?
Office partition panels come in different types and sizes. A business should choose partition panels based on design and space requirements.
- Modular Panels
Divide and maximize your current space with MergeWorks’ contemporary modular panels. Create meeting rooms, collaboration huddle spaces, breakrooms, waiting rooms and private work areas without incurring costly construction.
