If you’re looking at building fixed, full-height walls, it might pay to take a look at modular walls.
Modular wall systems were first introduced in the late 60’s and for many years, mostly large corporations with big construction budgets and high churn rates were the only ones that could cost justify them. At two to three times the initial cost of standard construction, movable wall systems were difficult to justify. Just in the last decade, things have changed and movable wall systems are gaining wide acceptance with designers, corporations as well as construction companies.
As organizations of all sizes look for ways to adapt to a constantly changing workplace, the case for modular walls has become stronger.
Before you invest in standard construction walls, consider 8 advantages of a modular wall system:
Flexibility – Modular wall systems are relatively easy to move and reconfigure. There’s little down time and waste when you need to move and change.
Reduced Construction Time – Wall systems save 3-4 weeks on a typical construction project compared to dry wall.
Fewer Disruptions – Modular walls are fairly easy to move and reconfigure and there is no construction.
Tax savings – Wall systems are depreciated on a 7-year furniture schedule.
Superior Aesthetic– Wall systems can be specified with glass, laminates, wood veneer and other materials that can create a beautiful image.
More Options – Wall systems include many options such as white boards and fabric tack boards.
Connectivity – Most wall systems can connect with modular furniture systems allowing for even more flexibility and furniture integration.
Better for the Environment – Modular wall systems all but eliminate waste and provide a sustainable solution.
