Screenflex School Gym Conversion Into Classroom

Create Classroom Space

Depending on the type and size of classroom you need, Screenflex offers various heights and lengths to customize the perfect size walls for your school. Setting up a classroom with Screenflex is simple. For example, with one 13 panel room divider you can create several options for an open classroom for your students. If your room is 24′ wide, you can divide the room in half creating two 12′ rooms. Your second option uses the same 13 panel room divider and one wall by bending the divider into an “L” shape. This option creates an approximate 13′ x 11′ room. Another choice includes creating a “U” shaped room by using one wall and bending the 13 panel divider into a “U” shape, creating an approximate 7’4″ x 7’4″ room. There are many different size rooms you can create with Screenflex.

Direct Traffic Flow

Screenflex room dividers can be set up in minutes to direct the flow of traffic. Use room dividers instead of manpower to direct students or parents where they need to go. You will also see Screenflex at airports to designate a closed terminal or to re-route traffic. Several room dividers can be latched together with multi-unit connectors to create endless divider length.

Anyone keeping up with the progress made on NBC’s new show School Pride, and that has a fondness for well designed furniture may have been excited to see Smith System’s furniture being showcased on a recent episode.  The school selected for a much needed regroup was Kingston Springs Elementary School.  Their Tennessee school was engulfed in flood water in May of this year and suffered building damage as well as the loss of books, technology and school furniture.

Volunteers helped unload a substantial gift of school furniture products from Smith System including their new Flavors School Chairs that offer flexible and ergonomic seating in fantastic colors.  Interchange Student Desks were brought in to offer a long-term student workspace solution that allow individual study or can be grouped for cooperative learning activities.   Teacher’s eager to return to their curriculum, also received new Planner Teacher Desks and files for classroom storage.

“Despite the devastation of the flood, Kingston Springs Elementary School will come back stronger than ever due to the opportunity presented by ‘School Pride,’” says Molly Risdall Parnell, national sales manager for Smith System. “Teachers and students will get the 21st Century solutions that they deserve, including flexible and collaborative furniture designed to better educational experiences in the long term.”
