Whether you’re in a classroom or an office, ample space is often a scarce resource. At times, you have to be really creative with the space you do have, making every square foot multi-functional. With this in mind, many people have found partitions and room dividers to be an easy answer to the space dilemma. Portable dividers allow you to change the layout and flow of any given space–and change it again at a moment’s notice.
Tag: ROOM DIVIDERS
Portable partitions in the office and classroom might look overly familiar if you’ve ever dealt with isolating distractions in limited spaces. Because distractions can be a major problem for some, having a partition is going to be essential in keeping a sense of focus. Especially during the holiday season, having a partition in an office or classroom might be mandatory when some employees and students have to work rather than enjoy a party.
Look for various partitions that can be sound proof or hold marker boards so classes or employee collaborations can go on without interruption. They also come in various heights to avoid any temptation to peek over the top at the holiday party happening on the other side.
In addition to being a fantastic divider of space, room dividers have many uses which you may not have known about. Screenflex room dividers come in various heights and lengths. Offered are 38 exciting colors and 5 fabulous fabrics to choose from. These options allow you to customize your dividers to suit your specific needs or customize your dividers to be used again and again for a multitude of purposes. Here are some ways to use Screenflex:
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.
School furniture shopping has never been easier now that Worthington Direct has released the latest version of their website that includes an instant freight calculator, live chat and a PDF version of their catalog.
Worthington Direct (www.worthingtondirect.com), a supplier of school, church and early childhood furniture and equipment for over 11 years has launched a new version of their website that will make online institutional furniture shopping a snap. School purchasers, church committee members and daycare owners will save time, and as always save money, when they purchase their facility furniture online with Worthington Direct.
One major upgrade is real-time freight calculator that offers instant shipping rates for almost every item on the specialty furniture website. Worthington Direct’s technology director, Brian Heiland, says, "Today’s online shoppers are becoming more savvy and are expecting interactive websites with advanced features, like instant freight calculations. School procurement offices can now simply click to view their shipping rates and use that information to complete their requisitions in seconds flat."
Freight can be calculated on each item detail page for individual shipping rates, or multiple items can be added to a shopping cart and then rated for a combined shipping amount. Unlike some of the other school furniture sites, Worthington Direct does not hide any shipping fees inside their product costs. Some companies base their shipping costs on a percentage of the purchase total, but that is not an accurate amount for an item that is small with a high price tag, such as technology products. This results in having some of the lowest costs in the industry and avoids the customer from paying an inflated shipping amount. Gas prices are steadily rising so every effort is being made to keep shipping rates accurate and to a minimum.
Another great feature found the Worthington Direct website is the ability to participate in live chat sessions with trained school and church furniture experts. Although anyone that calls during business hours will never encounter an automated recording, some people just like the option to type over dialing. Live chat is a great way to get fast responses for questions that arise while shopping for school furniture. A full version of their printed catalog can also be viewed in PDF form on the web now. Customers can view and print single pages or a range of pages that can be used in last minute committee meetings or to attach to their purchase requisition.
Some other upgrades to the institutional furniture website are larger images and a faster checkout process. Worthington Direct continues to focus on website improvements and to maintain their quality customer service from its origins as a direct mail catalog company. With all of the new and advanced features found on their online store, customers are still always to welcome to pick up their traditional catalog and call for fast friendly service.
