One of the problems that most businesses encounter today is the diminishing space for the office and the growing rent for office space. Assembling your own cubicle is one of the best ways to maximize the meager space available. Through office cubicles, you can fit plenty of work areas while maintaining the privacy that your workers need to finish their tasks easily and without disturbance. If you are planning on setting up office cubicles, here are the steps.
- Make walls. Cubicle sets come with panels that are used for the walls. To assemble your cubicle, take out two panels and attach them together using the connectors provided in each set. The connectors are a foot long metal device which fits into the indentations in each panel. To place two panels together, you need to slide the connector into the grooves of each panel. Each connector has two grooves that will accommodate two panels.
- Make corners. Once you have made the walls, you can create the corners that will box off the cubicle and create a partition from the rest of the work areas. To do this, you need to create a ‘corner' using the four ended connectors. The four ended connectors will accommodate up to four panels. To set this up, slide the panels into the grooves of the connector. Most acrylic cubicle panels have two grooved edges on both the upper part and the lower part of the panel. For smaller cubicles, it is easier to connect the corners by sliding the connector from the top. If there are spare connectors, however, the bottom corner should also be supported with a separate connector. Supporting the corners is necessary especially since the corners will act as the primary base for the cubicle.
- Create intersections. Create up to four corners, in order to make a partition. Each wall should have at least two panels. Adding panels will increase the work space for each cubicle. Be sure that the last panel is left open, to act as the entrance to the cubicle. Once the individual cubicle partition has been made, you can create intersections from the four ended connectors. Each end of the four pronged connector should have two spare grooves left. Attach walls to these panels to create the next partition. Create new corners for each of the new cubicles, and add entrance points. Each four ended cubicle can accommodate as much as four partitions.
- Modify. Assembling office cubicles should also be made with the available space in mind. Not all office spaces are alike, and you should learn how to tailor each partition pattern to the space available. You can lessen the number of cubicle partitions to be used by using the walls in the office area as a partition, which allows you to create only three more panel walls. In some office spaces, the hall has several wings or several larger corners. You can also create partitions that follow the contours of the office space, to save up on partition panels.
If you are setting up an office space in the city, you will face the problem of limited office space. By assembling cubicle walls, maximizing the scarce space resources available should be easy.
