Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get a price quote and what do I do to place an order?
Call and speak to one of our non-commissioned consultants at (800) 553-0110 or email us at [email protected]. We will help you in selecting the correct size, offer color samples, give you prices, and prepare a quote, including shipping. Our staff can then get your order entered quickly, and you can expect to receive your new dividers in about three weeks. Video

Can I use Push Pins, Tacks and Staples on my Screenflex Divider panels?
Yes! Screenflex panels are made from materials that won’t be damaged by repeated pinning. All of our fabrics are tough enough to hold up to pins, tacks and staples without showing a hole when removed. You can think of a Screenflex Room Divider as one large bulletin board. Velcro also works well with all of our fabrics but performs the best on our Select and Pinnacle fabrics. Video

Are Screenflex Room Dividers environmentally-friendly?
In addition to being remarkably versatile and flexible, Screenflex products are friendly to our environment. 76 percent of our products are made of recycled materials. Yet another reason Screenflex is the “First and foremost in Dividing Space!”

Do you make a Heavy Duty version of your standard free standing Room Dividers?
Yes! Please click here to see the Screenflex Heavy Duty Dividers.

Are Screenflex Room Dividers stable? Are they safe to use around children?
Our engineers have designed the most stable free standing room dividers in the industry. Our end frames supports are specifically designed to be low and wide on the of the unit. This design lowers the center of gravity and distributes the divider’s weight near the floor. This design allows you to grasp the divider to move it, to have clear sightlines when pushing the divider, and even allows you to pull the divider behind you. Screenflex room dividers are incredibly sturdy and completely safe for use in schools, Sunday Schools, gymnasiums and child care facilities. Video

Is the fire test data you provide for the entire panel system or only the fabric?
We take safety very seriously here at Screenflex. The fire test data we provide is on the ENTIRE panel… not merely the fabric. If you are comparing manufacturers, do please make sure you use this sheet, paying particular attention to the section on “Acoustical Fire Rated Panels.”

Do Screenflex Room Dividers absorb sound?
Sound is absorbed by surfaces such as a Screenflex panel which is made of two layers of fiberglass matte which helps absorb sound.

While the technical “Noise Reduction Coefficient” data is attached, what is also important to remember is when several classes/meetings are being held simultaneously in a large area, all the activity going on in the rooms simply becomes background noise. Audiologists call this “white noise” because while it is there, it is not very noticeable Video

I need help determining a layout and what sizes to order. Can I get planning help?
By all means, yes! We have room planning experts on staff who will listen to your needs, make recommendations and give you detailed plans in 2D and 3D, all at no charge. Please visit our planning page to get started. Video

We have 8 eight foot high ceilings in our room. Can we use an 8 foot tall room divider?
Good question, but it is not possible, for two reasons.

  1. An 8’0″ tall Screenflex free standing or wall mounted divider needs more than an 8’0″ ceiling clearance. You could roll the divider through your doorway at an angle, but you will not have enough room to upright it without damaging your ceiling.
  2. The Position Control Hinges located at the top of each panel, which help keep the panels locked into place, add 3/4″ in height to each divider. Thus, an 8’0″ divider is too tall to use in a room with an 8’0″ ceiling.

Will a 6’8″ tall free standing Room Divider fit through a standard 6’8″ tall doorway?
Because the Position Control Hinges add 3/4″ in height to all free standing Room Dividers, a doorway must be slightly higher than 6’8 3/4″, so the divider can wheel freely through the opening

How are the Screenflex Divider Heights determined?
All heights are measured from the floor to the top of the divider. The caster clearance area along the entire bottom length of any divider is 5 3/4″ high.

Can a wall mounted divider unit be converted to a free-standing Room Divider or vice-a-versa?
No, units cannot be converted from one style to another. The legs are different on each style so the units would not operate properly.

Does Screenflex manufacture a trade show booth divider that can replace pipe and drape?
Yes! Please contact our sales department for more details.

Are Screenflex products made in the U.S.A?
Yes, all Screenflex products are proudly made in Lake Zurich Illinois, part of the “Heartland of America”.

Product Care

How can the room dividers be cleaned?
A. Oil or grease type of spots will respond to a mild solvent or dry cleaning agent. The blotting technique will be sufficient to remove most stains.
B. For general dirt or grime spots, sponging with the foam from a mild detergent or upholstery shampoo should remove the accumulated dirt and grime. Room temperature solution should be sufficient. Rinse well with a clean sponge to remove traces of the water based cleaning agent. The fabric will dry very quickly but avoid over saturating the panels.
Common dirt and stains may be removed by rubbing lightly with a moistened cloth, sponge or stiff bristle brush using a mild soap, detergent or non-abrasive cleanser. It is important that clean water be used on a constant basis and that the vinyl be towel dried.Please Print our Fabric Cleaning Instructions for further details
