With open plan offices now the norm in workplaces around the globe, office pods and meeting booths are increasingly in demand as employees desperately battle to find a quiet corner away from all the noise.
What are office pods & meeting booths?
Office pods and meeting booths are secluded workspaces designed to minimise distractions and encourage productivity and collaborative work in open plan areas – specifically offices and showrooms.
Our meeting pods are comprised of curved office screens that have been linked together. We use freestanding screens for our office booths because they blend seamlessly into a working environment and can easily be moved to different locations should your office require a restructure.
What can office pods & meeting booths be used for?
Office booths can be used for a wide range of professional applications; most commonly as an area to host meetings. This can be with clients, co-workers or other trade professionals within an office or retail setting.
They are also popular amongst managers looking for a professional but unimposing area to train staff and provide feedback.
With regards to collaborative work, office pods are ideal for hosting group meetings and progress sessions as they offer a space away from the general office population.
Some people work better on their own, and in this instance, an office screen meeting pod provides the perfect area to do some independent work.
Where can office pods & meeting booths be used?
As the name suggests, office pods are best suited to offices – specifically open-plan areas.
Despite the name, though, they are ideal for many different locations; including in retail showrooms, at exhibitions, in school, college and university libraries, public areas such as meeting halls and information centres, as well as in call centres and staff rooms.
What are the benefits of office pods?
Designed to offer a breakaway area in crowded offices, the most notable benefit of meeting booths is that they provide privacy and seclusion.
Our acoustic meeting pods are made using sound-absorbing office screens which reduce noise pollution and create a quieter working space. This, in turn, increases concentration and productivity.
Being made of office screens, our range of meeting pods are safe for use with pins and Velcro; meaning you can attach notices and leaflets to your booth to aid with meetings and group work.
The freestanding screens are easily self-assembled and – should the need arise – can be moved between areas.
You can customise your meeting pod by adding to it and changing the layout, as well as choosing the fabric colour that best suits your business.
Compared to custom-built meeting booths, our range of office pods are a low-cost alternative that is more accessible to smaller businesses and independent organisations with a smaller budget.
Types of office pods
Round office pods
Curved meeting pods come in sizes ranging from 1.7m to 3m wide and can accommodate a circular table with between two and five chairs.
These singular meeting units work particularly well in showrooms and areas where an increased level of privacy is required.
Circular meeting booths are made from multiple freestanding curved office partitions.
Each screen comes with a linking strip and a finishing strip. The linking strips slide down the sides of the screens and allow you to link several partitions together. The finishing strips can be used on the two screens that make up the entrance to the pod as they create a refined edge on the screens.
You can choose from 12 bright fabric colours and two trim colours; allowing you to find the perfect fit for your brand.
S-Shaped office screens
Our range of S-Shaped office screen partitions is available in two sizes: 4.8m and 6m.
The undulating shape creates two separate meeting areas ideal for larger areas like libraries and universities.
The S-Shaped meeting booths are made from several floor-standing office dividers that are linked together.
As with the circular meeting pods, our S-Shaped office partitions come with both linking strips and finishing strips.
You can choose from the same range of 12 fabric colours and select one of two trim finishes to complete your S-Shaped meeting pod.
Non-acoustic office partitions
Both the round and S-Shaped office booths are available in acoustic and non-acoustic varieties.
Non-acoustic meeting booths are more suited to smaller offices with fewer people. This is because they don’t have sound-absorbing properties, meaning they won’t be as effective at reducing noise pollution and increasing concentration in busier areas.
The non-acoustic office screens are made from a core substrate board which is wrapped in a luxury loop nylon fabric.
Premium acoustic office screens
Our premium acoustic office partitions are the most effective, noise-reducing office pods available.
The core substrate boards of each screen are backed with a thick layer of soundproof foam which is wrapped in a luxury loop nylon fabric.
The foam absorbs the vast majority of sound and minimises noise pollution; making premium acoustic office pods ideal for large, open-plan offices and communal workspaces.
