Back To School – How Can Acoustic Partitions Benefit Schools?

Now that schools are welcoming students back, it’s important that they continue to adhere to the COVID-19 government guidelines so that both staff and students are as safe as they can be. Some students and staff may be hesitant to return as they might have become used to working and learning at home. Switching from a quiet environment at home to a busy school environment can take some getting used to, especially after the long summer holidays.

To help make this transition period of going back to school easier for both staff and students, Portable Partitions Company provides a range of high-quality acoustic partitions which are specifically designed to help maintain distancing measures and also reduce the noise levels.

How Can Acoustic Partitions Benefit Schools?

We have a wide range of multi-purpose room dividers and partitions that provide excellent sound dampening, perfect for use in offices, libraries, and school environments. Also available in our range are custom-printed office dividers which can be customised to your requirements and branding needs.

These acoustic dividers can be used to separate certain areas in classrooms and staff areas, such as desks. It helps with providing more privacy and it also reduces sound which helps both students and staff to concentrate. Once your students and staff are settled in, these partitions can be repurposed for other requirements in the school.

Below are some of our recommended products for school environments.
