Can you believe that this structure is a office cubicle? Most people should take a second or third look before they realize this is really a modular workstation. This is because cubicles with sliding doors look and feel like private offices. They create a 100% enclosed environment that allows the busy professional to work undisturbed. One of the biggest complaints people have about cubicles is that they are open on one side, allowing anyone to approach the occupant while he or she is working. Cubicles with sliding doors prevent others from approaching you when you are busy and need to focus. They also provide significant insulation against background noise in the office and offer you a more focused and productive work space.
Unfortunately, many people do not even consider cubicles with sliding doors because they incorrectly assume that the cost of these workstations is much higher than it is. Many are surprised to learn that the cost of these workstations is easy to scale to budget by carefully selecting the right materials. In the picture above, we see cubicle panels composed of a blend of fabric covered partitions and glass inserts. Fabric covered panels are the least expensive partition option, so this lowers the cost significantly for the customer. While glass inserts do bear a higher price point, we used transparent glass for the windows in this workstation, which costs significantly less than frosted glass. This left enough budget for a frosted glass sliding door that prevents co-workers from seeing directly into the user’s workspace. This added touch of privacy is ideal for persons working with highly sensitive information.
The applications for cubicles with sliding doors are almost as varied as there are job descriptions. Many of our customers now order them for their sales teams because sales professionals spend a great deal of time on the phone. When you have five to ten sales agents talking to customers at the same time, even a small company will begin to sound like one of those call centers where you overhear three or four conversations in the background. By adding the insulating barrier of the door, we can block these conversations so that both the sales agent and the customer can hear the conversation more clearly.
Cubicles with sliding doors are an ideal choice for any executive management team. Managers can leave their doors open during those times when employees are welcome to approach them for assistance, training, or conferencing. The closed door speaks for itself and sends a polite, “do not disturb” message to the team. Many companies are now moving away from the open concept office because it has the tendency to blur the boundaries between managers and staff. This can create too much familiarity between workers and their managers and lead to discipline problems down the line. Cubicles with sliding doors look more formal and establish an immediate sense of authority and clear, professional boundaries.
