There are times when a clear partition provides a distinct advantage over traditional fabric-covered partitions. Use clear room dividers when you need to control or contain an area but still need to have an unobstructed view of what’s happening on the other side of the barrier. See-through walls are great for a number of settings, from hospitals to schools to science labs.
Screenflex uses 3/16-inch crystal-clear OPTIX® acrylic to create these versatile clear panels. OPTIX® acrylic is non-yellowing, lightweight and highly impact-resistant. Our plexiglass room dividers are three times as strong as double-strength window glass. For added durability, our translucent wall panels are affixed to the custom anodized extruded aluminum channels with a silicone adhesive.
Screenflex acrylic dividers are perfect for a variety of applications
- Check-In Barrier- Portable Plexiglass walls are perfect for any medical facility right at the reception area. In hospitals, primary care facilities, and dentist offices, plexiglass room dividers act as a line of defense from infectious diseases spreading to either medical staff or patients. The transparent barrier allows communication to continue on either side of the partition as well. If there are multiple patients at reception, the Clear Dividers can act as a sneeze guard and also a form of crowd control between people. Since these dividers are freestanding and portable, they can easily be moved to different areas of the facility as needed.
- Security Wall – Clear partition walls are ideal for security situations in airports, hotels, or school lobbies because they allow you to restrict access and also see what is beyond the barrier. They are also a great way to create cooperative learning environments in classrooms or libraries. Since you can write on them, using rolling, translucent wall panels allow you to post information without being tied to a wall, and it won’t block your view of the rest of the room. You can use see-through walls in educational settings such as classrooms, student unions, cafeterias, and lobby spaces. A clear partition is also ideal for restaurants, open-concept kitchens, and museums.
- Inclement Weather Barrier – We got this great tip from several customers who have used their acrylic room partition to reduce or control drafts and temperature fluctuations in lobby areas. Simply place a three-panel clear mobile divider inside the entrance or a series of connected clear dividers in front of a bank of entry doors to reduce the force of cold exterior air from entering a lobby space. We tried it and it made a big difference.
Since the 2020 pandemic started, plexiglass wall dividers have been a crucial tool for managing the spread of COVID-19 and other infectious diseases in medical facilities. See-through walls are also ideal for indoor play areas, athletic facilities, amusement/tourist venues, or retail shopping centers. They are also an important asset at airport security checkpoints and correctional institutions because they allow for physical separation without losing the ability for visual surveillance.
