Cellular Offices

Partitioned Offices

Executive office design, meeting rooms and cellular offices. The practical division of space, subject to stringent fire regulations, providing an area of calm and concentration, privacy and continuity. Cellular office spaces must meet a number of demands, and the style often corresponds with the wider design scheme whilst meeting the needs of the occupier.

Demountable partitions are the typical method of creating an individual office for a Manager or Director. Cost effective, re-usable, and able to mix solid and glazed sections, demountable partitions are tested to meet Fire Regs, and can be relocated without a lot of disruption. Low price systems can suffer from sound transfer and low structural rigidity. Air Con services should be adapted once an open plan area is enclosed.

Sound Transfer

The thickness of walls is a good guide to the quality of a system. Solid partition walls at 60mm or 75mm are the minimum level for an office. 100mm walls provide enhanced sound and fire resistance, whilst anything thicker than 100mm will achieve good levels of sound privacy. Ideal for creating executive offices and acoustically insulated meeting rooms, high quality partitioning systems perform as well as solid walls but retain adaptability enabling reconfiguration when necessary.

Useful to note that sound transfer can stem from gaps in ceilings, air con ducts and even underfloor voids. Cellular office walls are only one piece in this jigsaw.
