Workspace Partitioning Benefits

Whether you work in an office, a warehouse, or a factory, you will likely find that space is always at a premium.  You may need space to store products, equipment, or files.  You may have staff who feel cramped in their assigned area, or find that you need more room for activities such as meetings or goods handling.

The funny thing about space is that, no matter how much of it we have, the human tendency is to fill it.  Sure, you could move to bigger premises, but wouldn’t your activities just expand to fill that, too?  Arranging assets within a workplace environment is like pouring gravy onto your Sunday roast: it spreads around, fills in all the corners, and always seems to be dangerously close to spilling if you nudge the plate.

How can this inexorable spread be controlled?  Many business owners and office managers have found that introducing flexible workspace partitioning has allowed them to organise their resources effectively.  Can it really be the case that introducing even more equipment into the workplace environment will help to make more space?  Actually, what may appear to be a lack of space more often than not turns out to be a lack of an effective way to organise the personnel and items in a given area.

Think of it this way: thousands of customers may shop at a supermarket every day, and the road outside is a constant stream of vehicles.  But since the car park has clearly marked parking bays, the traffic flows smoothly, and sooner or later, everyone finds a place to park.  In the same way, workplace office partitioning can make it possible for your team to work together efficiently, ensuring everyone has the space they need.

Even better, mobile office partitioning screens make it possible to reconfigure an area whenever its purpose needs to be changed.  Individual cubicles can be removed to form a meeting room, or office partitioning can be arranged into a meeting room, showroom, or customer area.  Similarly, warehouse partitioning can be used to separate production areas from storage bays, and so forth.

At Central Storage Systems, we provide workspace partitioning in the form of movable screens, and workplace office partitioning walls for when more permanent arrangements are needed.  We can also offer heavy-duty industrial office partitioning, which is suitable for constructing temporary office and room areas within an outer warehouse or factory.

How can our office and warehouse partitioning be put to best use?  Some workplace environments, such as a busy sales office, may thrive as open plan areas with minimal partitioning.  On the other hand, areas, where staff meet customers, should be well enclosed to offer calm and privacy.  Then, whenever a practice or procedure is changed, the partitions can be rearranged accordingly.

Another workplace solution from Central Storage Systems is mezzanine floors, which can be used in conjunction with industrial office partitioning.  Please contact us online or by telephone to learn more about any of these products.
