Key points of office seating planning

Office seating planning is the key to creating a comfortable and efficient working environment, so work flow and communication needs need to be fully considered, which will directly affect the office's work efficiency, employee comfort, team cooperation and interaction, and the company's overall operations. .

Depending on the size and shape of your office, choose an appropriate cubicle and seating layout. Whenever possible, ensure that each seat provides adequate personal space and comfort while balancing the needs for privacy and openness. For employees who need to work intensively, consider providing more private seating or enclosed cubicles, while for teams that require frequent communication and collaboration, opt for an open seating configuration.

What types of office partition designs are there? What exactly are high compartments?

Office partition design is not just about dividing the space, but also arranging the partition design according to the characteristics of each space. Currently, the three most common partition designs are: light partitions, glass partitions, and cabinet partitions. The high partition is an extremely modular partition method that extends the partition to the ceiling, providing better privacy and security. Today's article will explain it in detail and provide you with a reference.

  1. light compartment

The construction of light partitions mainly includes steel light partitions, white brick wall light partitions, ceramsite wall partitions and wooden light partitions. The advantages of light partitions are that they have little impact on the building structure, do not increase the floor load, are fast to construct, and will be easier to change the layout in the future. The following is an introduction to light partitions made of four materials.

Light steel frame light partition

Light steel frames are divided into two types of light compartments: dry type and wet type, with different application ranges. Dry light compartments are filled with fireproof and soundproofingrock wool, is the light partition method with the fastest construction speed, lightest weight and low construction cost. The middle of the wet light compartment is filled with lightweight concrete, which contains styrofoam balls. It is lightweight, impermeable, and has higher strength than dry light compartments and brick walls. It has good sound insulation effect and easy piping.


Gypsum brick light partition

Gypsum bricks have excellent moisture-proof and water-absorbing properties and are less likely to cause wall cancer. They are suitable for use in Taiwan’s humid climate. They are fireproof, sound-insulating, excellent in hanging, earthquake-resistant and crack-resistant, and quick to construct. They are also environmentally friendly and can be reused. Received in 2024Green Building Materials Label; The disadvantage is that the texture is soft and not suitable for outdoor use. It is only suitable for indoor light partitions.


Ceramic wall light partition

Ceramic boardCeramic walls are cement-based materials made by firing clay at high temperatures and high pressures. Ceramsite walls are a lightweight partition method with high functionality and fast construction. They can be cut to size according to needs and transported directly to the site for assembly and jointing. It will be completed very quickly. Ceramic board light partitions have the advantages of fire prevention, heat insulation, sound insulation, and earthquake resistance. They are fast to construct and highly functional. The disadvantage is that the weight of ceramic board partitions is relatively heavy, and the cost and technical threshold are relatively high.

  1. glass partition

Using glass partitions can improve indoor lighting, amplify the sense of spacious space and enhance beauty and taste. In addition, many executive office designs will use glass partitions with curtains, which not only gives a modern and neat look, but also retains communication privacy. The disadvantage is that it is easy to collide and break, which is relatively unsafe. It also has poor sound insulation, temperature insulation and cold room effects.

It has the advantages of space division and storage, improving the efficiency of space use. The cabinet is highly maneuverable. Depending on the placement, the space can be easily cut into different movement lines. It has good lighting and is beautiful. It is common in public spaces. planning. The disadvantage is that the sound insulation effect is poor and the durability is not as good as that of solid partition walls.

  1. High compartment

High compartments made ofscreenA system product evolved from the partition, which modularizes the structural dimensions of the product so that it has the extensibility and matching of height and width, and can create various spatial configurations and changes in response to different needs to achieve consistency. spatial style or coordination. The modular design is easy to disassemble and assemble, has multiple styles, and can be moved and reused multiple times. During use, the positions of doors, windows, and physical modules can be adjusted at any time, and they can be reassembled and reused. After disassembly and assembly of materials, their loss is minimal, which can greatly reduce the cost of office relocation.
