When you move into a new building, you may think you are stuck with the layout you are given.

However, you can use techniques like raised access flooring, suspended ceilings, and wall partitions to transform the look and feel of your building and optimise the space available.

If you’re looking to divide a larger space into smaller rooms, a wall partition is an excellent way to do this.

Also called ‘partition walls’, a wall partition is a divider wall that can be used to separate areas of a building. These partition walls can fully extend from the floor to the ceiling, or provide partial coverage.

These walls are usually non-load bearing, which means they don’t support the weight of the floor above, only themselves. However, some partition walls can serve as load-bearing walls if required.

Wall partitions can be constructed from a variety of materials, including timber, steel, aluminium, or glass. They can even include doors, windows, and shelves to give you the specific customisation you need for your building.

Is a wall partition right for me?

The main advantage of wall partitions is that you can use them to create new rooms inside an existing space.

For example, let’s say you’ve moved into an open-plan office, but you want staff to have their own space. You can use partition walls to section off parts of the building, so every department has a private room of its own.

As most wall partitions are not load-bearing, it makes it easy to change the layout of your building over time as needed. Some partition walls can even be reused in a different location.

Wall partitions have other benefits too:

  • They can offer acoustic insulation, for example, in a factory to provide a confidential meeting space
  • They can contain fire-resistant insulation to help improve the safety of your building
  • They can help make your building more secure as it’s harder to break into individual offices without detection
  • They are a cost-effective and more environmentally friendly alternative to constructing solid walls
  • If you use glass wall partitions, they can partition space without sacrificing natural light
