Why You Must Use Operable Walls for Your Office Space

Article by Zircon Interiors

Spatial efficiency is becoming a necessity as experts predict that rental rates will continue to rise in the coming months. In last year’s September quarter report, the median weekly rent in Victoria was at $400, with an annual change rate of 3.3 per cent. As vacancy rates continue to drop, business owners are optimising their offices to meet their spatial needs.

To increase useable space in the workplace, businesses have started adopting innovative design solutions such as the open-plan concept. This design removes traditional walls and partitions for better workflow and maximised space. However, with a recent study suggesting that this design limits collaboration and communication, some business owners have decided against using it for their workplaces.

An alternative to the open-plan office is the use of operable walls. This office partition system allows you to divide your space semi-permanently so that it can adapt to your spatial needs over time. These mobile structures give you the privacy you get from traditional walls while giving you the flexibility necessary for any business that is growing.

We at Zircon Interiors are providing business owners in Victoria office partitions that are custom-made to accommodate their organisation’s spatial needs.

Flexibility of Space

The advantage of installing operable walls in your office is its flexibility. This partition system gives you rooms where there were none. This particular feature comes in handy when you have meetings or conferences. Operable walls can provide you with privacy without completely and permanently closing off space that can be used for other purposes.

Better Acoustics

Zircon Interior has three options for our operable walls, namely glass, timber, and acoustic absorbent fabric. Although all three materials can keep noise levels down, the acoustic absorbent fabric is ideal for sound-proofing rooms. With these options, you no longer have to worry about disturbing people when you close off a space for meetings.

Modern Design

Our office designs are made in harmony with your existing interior design and architecture. Our team of designers will work with you to give your office space operable walls that are sophisticated and chic. Moreover, while this partition system gives you the benefit of creating temporary rooms in your workplace, we design them to look permanent to blend in seamlessly with your architecture.

Reduce Costs

Reconstruction projects are often expensive and time-consuming; operable walls are easy to install and cost-efficient. This partition system is developed to be less intrusive so that your operations are not affected while the walls are being installed. Moreover, its flexibility gives you more rooms at lower costs.

We believe that creative and imaginative designs influence the workplace environment. Our team incorporates innovative practices and the latest industry standards in the office designs we create. We have a concept-to-construction process that ensures you get a space that has been optimised to meet your demands.
