Desktop Dividers are an office accessory which optimizes the use of a desk space. Offices can be loud, too open and sometimes uncomfortable, but this can be managed with subtle changes.
Unlike freestanding office screens, desktop dividers are compact and use little space. The smaller design enables the use within the smallest of offices whilst still delivering the intended impact. Attaching dividers to the desk is fast and efficient and with the use of easy fix clamps it’s possible to move and adjust the screen as your office space changes throughout the years.
Choosing the right finish for your space is important, but so is choosing the right height. The right height can be dependent on why your adding screening and what you’d like to achieve.
The most common heights are 400mm, 500mm and 600mm, offering varying levels of privacy and ability to communicate.
Starting with the 400mm height which is the lowest available option. 400mm supplies a great height that offers just enough privacy but won’t stop communication. Working collaboratively is still possible, ensuring group projects are easy to navigate.
Going up a little higher, the 500mm provides even more privacy and creates a great barrier between you and the team. If your job doesn’t involve regular conversation with others and the preference is to work alone, then a 500mm high screen is perfect.
If acoustic desktop dividers are implemented to reduce noise, voice projection should be taken into consideration. 500mm is a suitable height for most desks and person height to effectively absorb sound.
Finally, 600mm is the highest available option and creates full security around a desktop. A 600mm desktop divider isn’t for those offices that like to talk or socialize with others, this height will block out most of the office and result in individual desk booths. Consider the amount of light and visibility you’ll lose when opting for such a high desk screen.
