How To / Tips on Zoning a Large Room with Temporary Walls

May 13, 2022

Assume you’re working on a project with only one large room. Supplies must be housed, personnel must have a place to rest, meetings must be held, and work must be completed in this room. This can quickly become disorganized and chaotic with the lack of permanent walls. What if there was a solution to quickly and easily create temporary rooms within this large space to help zone it into different areas configurations? That would surely help this jobsite become more organized and less chaotic.

Large workspaces with no room partitions, little organization, multiple trades or little privacy presents conflicts on the jobsite that can be easily avoided with boundaries in place. Having no interior walls can create a challenge for everyone on site and can negatively impact work environments. Luckily, there are inexpensive and quick solutions that can provide immediate organization for any open area that needs to be broken into smaller zones in the construction, healthcare, retail, and facilities maintenance industries.

Our Solution: Temporary Wall System

There are several solutions to assist in creating zones within a large room. One option is constructing barriers using dust containment poles and plastic sheeting. Simply use plastic clipped to containment poles to construct a barrier. This is helpful when working on a job where excessive dirt or debris is created. This is more of a short term and minimal solution to create temporary walls and may not be appropriate for rooms where break, meeting and storage rooms or private spaces are needed.

Alternatively, we suggest using a modular panel system to provide long term and aesthetically pleasing freestanding wall partitions. These are often lightweight and simple to assemble, making them quick and easy to install. SpeedyRoom™ is a great choice when looking for a temporary wall system.

What is SpeedyRoom™?

SpeedyRoom™ is a set of lightweight corrugated plastic sheets used to create temporary portable room dividers within large rooms. The plastic sheets are used in conjunction with connectors to create trade show walls, hallways, office spaces, data-centers, storage rooms, dust barriers, and more. No tools are necessary when constructing the temporary walls and the product can be easily stored and reused after the job is over.
