suitable for the requirements of your office space, but mid-height partitions are one of the most widely
and successfully used variety of screens. These start from the floor but stop a few meters short of the
ceiling and are commonly used to semi-enclose cubicles for workers in open plan offices.
- Floor-to-ceiling office partitions: If the activities carried out in your office
require a quiet environment, it may be a good idea to consider full height partitions. These reach from
floor to ceiling, and are more like temporary walls than screens. Floor-to-ceiling office partitions are
often constructed from foam-core plasterboard or cloth covered wood or metal frames. As well as supreme
privacy, they can effectively reduce noise pollution.

These screens have a similar appearance and functionality to floor-to-ceiling partitions, except they concertina open, allowing easy access between the two separated spaces. Accordion partitions offer a great deal of flexibility, while also preventing the spread of sound.
