So you’re interested in dividing your space. You may be considering the usual, boring, static conventional dry walls. Those dry walls that cost all that time and effort, specialized labor and required permits…
Well what if there was another option? One that not only supports technology and provides your employees with enclosed spaces needed to collaborate, focus and rejuvenate-
but one that cuts the cost and the effort, is completely reconfigurable and comes in Kit of Parts. Sounds good, doesn’t it?
In this blog post, we’ll break down everything you need to know about Modular Walls. From the best architectural solutions on the market, to the needed benefits.
We’ll help you decide if Modular Walls are right for you.
What is a Modular Wall?
A modular wall may look and function like traditional drywall, but they’re not the same. Modular walls are manufactured in components and shipped to you as a kit of parts, which are then assembled by a team of installers.
Modular walls are easy to move, completely reconfigurable and can be wired for power and data. They create privacy that feels open, to help people feel connected to their colleagues, enjoy natural light and stay productive.
The Systemcenter offers a variety of modular solutions; Framed, Frameless, Freestanding- a complete portfolio of reconfigurable walls with different styles and benefits. Each integrates with one another, as well as with traditional architecture, to provide your company with a custom solution for a resilient workplace that engages your employees.
Modular walls attend to a variety of needs and offers novel ways to meet design objectives for every space. Choose moveable walls in metal, laminate, wall coverings, or wood with finishes to match your casegoods. Or, choose from clear, patterned, and custom glass. Monolithic and segmented tiles are available in framed and frameless designs. Multiple door options—including full-height, double-glazed, frameless glass doors—complete the aesthetic.
The Benefits of Modular Walls
1. Cost Efficiency
Modular walls reduce the cost of moving and adjusting walls without relying on drywall installation. Because they are manufactured and sent to you in parts, they can designed to be reconfigured with maximum efficiency, so you won’t have to worry about buying materials over and over again.
Since there’s no need for traditional construction, modular walls can shorten the length of your construction schedule, reduce labor and permit costs, eliminate scheduling delays and ensure your employees return to their space sooner than later.
As your business needs evolve, you need a fluid workspace that’s easy to reconfigure. Whether you want to separate a large meeting room into multiple smaller rooms or give employees private offices of their own, modular walls let you use your space efficiently.
With modular walls, you can easily change or reconfigure your office layout in a matter of hours. A team of licensed installers can quickly dissemble, move and reassemble your walls, as compared to a contractor who will take weeks or even months to knock down and rebuild drywall partitions. In some cases, your reconfigured design could require ordering additional parts to accommodate the layout, however simple configurations can most often be done with all of your already existing components.
Unlike conventional drywall, modular walls offer an unmatched visual aesthetic and a plethora of design options, including a wide array of fabrics, paints, veneers and custom finishes, as well as multiple glass and hardware options.
With modular walls, the design possibilities are never ending. You can choose clear or custom glass fronts to let the natural light flow in, or you can custom match paints, fabrics and painted steel to support your corporate image.
In an open office, people need enclosed spaces to concentrate and collaborate – and in the post Covid-19 workplace, the need for privacy is even greater than before. Individuals should have easy access to places where they can focus and find solitude without compromising their safety.
Organizations can use modular walls to divide and maximize their workspace and give employees the privacy they need to work. Glass walls, or even solid walls with windows, create a physical barrier between people and provide the appropriate level of visual privacy.
