I like this example of how Rocky Ridge Mennonite Church is using Screenflex. Most growing churches share a similar need when they are looking for room dividers.
Pastor Karen Moyer uses their large fellowship hall for clubs during the week and for Sunday school on the weekend. Kids break up into groups and find a spot in the fellowship hall. As the church grows in numbers, Pastor Karen finds it harder to separate the different groups without many distractions. Sometimes the volume in the fellowship hall is disturbing to the other groups. I’m picturing one group in prayer while another group is playing a game and laughing. Does this sound familiar?
Pastor Karen and members of the church talked about different ways to divide their space. They decided that the best option would be to buy room dividers that were portable and temporary and very sturdy so they could open up their fellowship hall for large groups or divide the space when they needed an extra classroom. Karen wanted something that could withstand the daily wear and tear of opening and closing the dividers. She also required a product that would be safe on the hard floor and carpeting.
One Standard Screenflex Room Divider Does the Job
Karen bought a 6′ H x 24′-1″ L room divider to create 2 separate classrooms in their fellowship hall. As you can see in the photos, Karen can roll back the dividers and store them in just a 2.5′ x 3′ space (see the floor plan below). Room dividers are safe on carpeting and hard surface. Self-leveling, locking corner casters are non-marking and have a combined load of 600 lbs. Dividers glide effortlessly across the floor.
Free space planning is available for all of your room dividing needs.
Pastor Karen comments
The Screenflex wall gives us versatility with the use of our large fellowship hall. The large space needed for weekday clubs, can be easily transformed into individual Sunday School class space by extending the wall into an L-shape. I was concerned that the open-class environment might be distracting for students, but the elementary age students function well in it.
