Acoustic portable room dividers from Portable Partitions Australia were installed in a school gym to hide an untidy storage area for equipment.

Open storage facilities are very common in school gyms and activity areas where certain corners are used as a depository for a variety of equipment. However, the sheer quantity of equipment can quickly turn the area into an untidy mess; even when kept in tidy piles, the storage ends up looking cluttered and disorganised.

Since the equipment needs to be accessed frequently, the storage area continues to remain in the main visible area for all to see. The solution is to have an aesthetically pleasing partition wall that allows easy access to the storage area, is mobile enough for anyone to move, and can be relocated at any time.

Portable Partitions Australia (PPA), the market-leading manufacturer and supplier of portable office partitions, was engaged by a local school to provide the right mobile partition solution to hide the untidiness of its existing equipment depository in the gym.

The client selected the 360 acoustic portable room divider (fabric) as a cost-effective solution to the problem. The most popular partition product in PPA’s range due to its versatility, the 360 mobile room dividers feature a patented 360-degree articulating hinge system allowing for infinite configurations.

PPA’s acoustic portable room dividers were used by the school to easily create an L-shaped partition to hide the front and sides of the depository, concealing the clutter for a clean and organised look. Taking up an 85cm x 85cm floor space for easy transport and storage, these room dividers can be simply wheeled away to a corner or storage cupboard when not in use.
