Portable Partitions Australia supplied its acoustic portable room dividers to a church in Orange (NSW) to help them create dynamic multipurpose spaces within their centre hall.

Modern day churches and religious centres are going beyond their basin function as a mere place of worship to become a key focal community hub as well. These centres host functions, meetings, celebrations and classes, straining the already stretched facilities in terms of space capacity. Lack of space can also cause these centres to miss out on vital additional revenue sources.

Adapting the available space for maximum application versatility is key to accommodating multiple function requirements often at short notice. Large spaces can also be transformed into more inviting and useful smaller spaces, facilitating multiple uses at the same time.

Ever Upward Apostolic Centre sought the assistance of Portable Partitions Australia, the market leading supplier of portable room dividers and mobile partitions, for a solution to make their centre hall more adaptable for accommodating several activities at the same time.

The client chose the 360 acoustic portable room dividers as the solution for their requirements. The divider offers great versatility in terms of room configurations and creating ‘spaces within spaces’, in addition to strong acoustic dampening properties. The mobile room divider could also be easily folded and moved to different locations within the centre.

Tim White, Centre Manager at the Orange Ever Upward Apostolic Centre explains that the mobile room dividers are used to separate the centre’s hall between the children's playground and the cafe. It is also used in an innovative application in the main auditorium where it’s placed behind the drum kit to help cut down the sound reverb.
