Solid partitioning systems are most commonly found in warehouses and factories. They are designed to create secure working stations in any type of area and provide simplicity and affordability.
Room partitions offer structure to open areas and they bring along flexibility with it, which is exactly what is required in all working environments. Utilising space is essential, and with solid partitions that are durable and adaptable, you can’t really go wrong.
So, whether you’re looking to learn more about warehouse partitions, office partitions and other partition systems available, we’ve created a simple handy guide to help with your solid partitioning needs.
Single Skin Partitions
There are two types of solid partitioning available and they are;
A single skin partition is a partitioning system ideal for various applications within a warehouse or factory environment. This includes offices, storage areas, roofs and security areas to name a few. The panels are bolted to the floor, making it de-mountable and easier to move without causing disruption or havoc in the workplace. What’s more, single skin partitions are designed with cost in mind, because the sheet is only welded to one side of the frame!
The system offers a selection of single, double and sliding doors so you can tailor it to your needs and requirements.
Mesh partitioning is an alternative option which should be taken into consideration based on your working environment.
The Benefits of Single Skin Partitions
Offers a cost-effective opportunity to break up the workspace
Can be tailored to meet requirements
Minimises disruption with quick installation
Available in multiple configurations – steel, steel/glass/steel, steel/mesh
Double Skin Partitions
Double skin partitions are ideal for use in factories and warehouse applications where a high-quality finish on both sides of the partitions is required. This kind of partitioning is better suited for those who are looking for a quality and relatively attractive partition system. Because of their versatility and hardwearing use, bricks and mortar and plasterboard are not used as much.
You can see double skin partitions in factory or warehouse reception areas, executive offices, and boardrooms where the brand image is crucial and therefore details do not go unnoticed. High-end office spaces tend to opt for double skin partitions rather than single skin partitions.
The Benefits of Double Skin Partitions
Ideally suited for higher end warehouse and factory applications
Available in various panel configurations – steel, steel/glass/steel, steel/glass
Can be tailored to meet requirements
Flexible and versatile door and lock options
What Is The Difference Between Single Skin and Double Skin Partitioning?
The only difference between the two is that a single skin partition wall is made up of one layer which is often used to divide office areas and working areas in factories or warehouses. Whereas a double skin partition wall is a double layered partition designed to aid in acoustics and material protection.
You can use a combination of single skin and double skin partitioning! This means your warehouse area can be divided and structured to pretty much anything you require. Require storage rooms? Staff rooms? Customer waiting areas? Partitioning is the way to go!
