Fusion Office Design have installed freestanding whiteboards for two clients. The two projects show the versatility of our whiteboard system. An office in Canary Wharf for a global bank has our free standing whiteboards installed throughout the open plan areas. Unusually the design includes fixed free standing whiteboards used as divider screens in front of a media bench. The grey frames are set into white head tracks for a cool design.

The slim profile uprights used to support the whiteboards and the open sections above and below help to maintain the sense of open plan whilst giving a feeling of definition to the space. The integral whiteboard gives the screens a functional purpose.
The zones create a mini team space or a compact VC spot that sits in amongst the workstations for immediate use without actually requiring walls to be built.
As with our sliding whiteboard system these freestanding whiteboards have all the weight on the base track, here set into the carpet. The top track is just a guide to keep the panel upright. No ceiling alterations or reinforcement was required and installation was quick and easy. To move the free standing dry-wipe board would be just as simple and would leave the ceiling intact with no reinstatement required.
Sliding Whiteboard Walls.
In addition to the freestanding whiteboard screens this project also includes a ‘war room’ screened by sliding whiteboards. The stunning views over London Docklands are available to all when the sliding whiteboard walls are opened.
The multi-channel tracks allow the entire wall to concertina and slide into a single panel width when ‘parked’. The grey floor tracks blend into the carpet to minimize the feeling of separation. Sliding whiteboard walls have the effect of creating a more accessible space. The whiteboards are light and easy to slide. Adjacent to the open plan, this convenience fosters a ‘drop-in’ style compared to a closed meeting room which supports team working.
Floor to Ceiling Whiteboards
The second installation, in Oxford for an education IT infrastructure organisation, uses floor to ceiling whiteboards positioned on the perimeter of the space.
Using our standard sliding system these floor to ceiling white boards have semi transparent dry-wipe surfaces to allow light from windows to be retained.
Together these two offices show how our whiteboard system adapts for different settings.
