Open Office Spaces And Curtain Tracks

OPEN SESAME

We've recently read a few articles discussing the many downfalls of open office spaces. A recent article in The Journal Times shares, "Across America, companies have torn down walls, built big open spaces, and designed work environments to make it easier than ever for staff members to talk. But what's been the effect of all of these open spaces? A series of new studies suggest that open workspaces aren't all they're cracked up to be. In fact, opening up offices may actually have the effect of decreasing communication and hurting productivity rather than helping it." What this article, and several other we have read, is trying to say is this kind of environment actually decreases face-to-face communication. But if you have an open office space, what are you to do? Start building walls? This can be time consuming and expensive. However, there is a solution that allows you to break up an office space when needed or open it up for large meetings: curtain walls.

DIVIDE AND CONQUER

Curtain walls can divide a space into smaller offices and conference rooms for brainstorming sessions and we have everything you need! The 6200 Heavy Duty I Beam is a strong track that can be mounted to the ceiling or the wall with the appropriate brackets and can divide the room beautifully. The 6100 F6100 Flexible Track on the other hand, is great for creating a few cubicles. Adding Eclipse Light Blocking Curtains to the curtain tracks will help also absorb sound so larger meetings don't disrupt others working at their desks.
