How To Take Your Office Partitions Apart
September 24, 2012
When the need to move your office partitions arises – perhaps you are rearranging the workplace or you’re moving to an entirely new building – you may wonder how to best go about doing this. In many cases, it is best to simply take the partitions apart and reassemble them in their new location. Use these instructions to help you take your panels apart:
Step 1: Conduct a thorough search for the manual that would have come with your office partitions. The manual will contain all of the instructions you need to complete this project. If you cannot find it, you will still be able to take the panels apart, it will just be a lot harder.
Step 2: Gather together all of the tools that you will need to disassemble the partitions. Generally, you will need a Philips head screwdriver, flat-head screwdriver, and an Allen wrench. Make sure that any furniture in the cubicle has been removed.
Step 3: For full height partitions, locate the screws holding them together and to the wall, floor and ceiling. Use your screwdriver to undo them, then lift the panels out one at a time. For half height partitions, it’s likely that they’ll simply by slotted into a frame. Simply slide them upwards and unscrew the frames.
Once you have finished taking your office partitions apart, you can simply stack all of the pieces together (making sure that you put the screws in a small bag or sticky tape them to the frame) and move them to their new location. You can then go about putting the panels back together in the opposite way that you disassembled them.
