How Portable Partitions Company Helped

Queen Margaret University in Edinburgh, Scotland is a leading school of health sciences. In recent years, the university has been focused on improving its campus environment and creating more private spaces for students, staff, and faculty. To achieve this goal, the school partnered with Portable Partitions Company to provide fabric screens and polycarbonate screen dividers.

The fabric screens are made from a durable woven material that can be used to create temporary walls or partitions. The screens are available in a variety of colours and patterns, and can be customised with logos or other graphics. The polycarbonate screen dividers are clear plastic panels that can be used to create visual barriers between spaces. Both types of partitions are easy to set up and take down, and can be reused multiple times.

Since installing the fabric screens and polycarbonate screen dividers, Queen Margaret University has improved the campus environment. The partitions have helped to create more private spaces for students, staff, and faculty, and have also improved the overall aesthetics of the campus. The university is thrilled with the results and plans to continue using Portable Partitions Company’s products in the future.

“We’re really pleased with them and how they look in the space. I’m glad we went for the blue fabric and polycarbonate mix.

Thanks for all your help and advice in the best options to go for.

I would not hesitate to recommend your company or to purchase additional dividers in the future if we required them.”
