Using your eight feet tall divider
Our experienced sales team is here to help you choose the right sized room divider for your space. We want to ensure your room divider will not only divide the space you have in mind but that you will be able to easily move the portable partitions throughout your facility as the needs arise. Customers often ask the questions, can we use an 8 ft tall room divider in an 8 ft tall room? Unfortunately, no. Let’s explore the various reasons why this will not work. You need more than an 8′ clearance to stand your unit upright when rolling your mobile partition through a doorway. An 8′ tall room may have high and low spots. No construction is perfect. Our room dividers have position control hinges across the top, to keep the unit open. The position controllers add an inch to the height of the unit. It is best to order a 7’4″ room divider or shorter for an 8′ tall room. Most people can not look over a 6’8″ partition.
Sound tends to travel up, so even if there is an opening at the top, it will not make a significant difference in sound absorption. Our units do absorb sound, however, they are more of a visual barrier and we promote the visual, not the sound qualities. We have several heights to choose from. A room divider is an often overlooked item that can be easily added to any room’s décor for dimension, color, and interest. Because of their many sizes, colors, and fabrics, there is certainly a room divider that will fit well into your space.
