One of the largest casinos in Australia, The Star in Pyrmont, Sydney used portable room dividers from Portable Partitions Australia to remain operational during a remodelling project.

Many businesses face a major challenge during construction, remodels and repairs to continue operations without compromising the professional environment or the overall customer experience. Room dividers and mobile walls offer a flexible and temporary solution to shield customers from the work in progress.

Seeking to maintain an attractive, stylish environment for their guests while work was going on behind the scenes, The Star casino chose a series of 360 acoustic portable room dividers from Portable Partitions to solve this problem. The black heavy duty durable partitions were customised with a gold design to match the casino’s existing décor and colour scheme. Some of the dividers displayed humorous sayings to lighten the mood of the affected customers. By matching the decal design with the overall colour scheme of the casino, the portable partitions were made to appear as much a part of the existing rooms as possible.

From a functional perspective, the portable partitions offered both flexibility and ease of use. Being only six feet in height and fitted with wheels, the room dividers could be easily moved to any location in the casino and even accommodated inside lifts by the casino staff or the contractors. These portable partitions worked so well for the Star that they ordered additional partitions for ongoing projects.

Room dividers offer a simple, flexible solution for any business that needs to shield customers from ongoing work, particularly in the hospitality industry where customer satisfaction is critical. Although construction and repair are the most common reasons for using partitions, a business could also install them to create a barricade while setting up an event or exhibition.

Businesses with customer-facing environments such as hotels and restaurants can opt for customisable dividers that blend in with the existing room decor with various options offered for custom colours, sizes and enhancements. The design outcomes will definitely reduce the impact of any ongoing construction on customers.

Moveable partitions are best suited for the temporary nature of construction and repair work, with the staff able to move or transport the dividers to another location. Dividers with wheels are particularly easy to transport and relocate with minimal labour requirement.
