Freestanding Wall Partitions

Workplace needs can shift over time, and it’s not always possible to drastically alter a space. If you discover that your staffing and space needs have changed, freestanding wall partitions can be an affordable solution. Designed to be self-supporting, freestanding wall partitions can be installed in any building, regardless of whether there is an overhead support structure. This means you can divide your existing space to better meet your needs. Our wall partitions are perfect for manufacturing facilities or distribution facilities where change happens frequently. Custom designed for each space, they are easy to install with limited disruption to your day-to-day business. Plus, our partitions use interconnecting components that make redesign fast and easy. No matter your industry, we can design a freestanding solution for you.

Freestanding Wall Partitions: Affordable, Adjustable Solutions for Any Facility

Because our freestanding walls don’t extend to the ceiling, they offer flexibility and an open design. All of our products feature:

  • Easy-to-install freestanding walls that are more affordable than traditional office partitions.
  • A range of panel finishes and core compositions to address different application requirements.
  • Finishes that include vinyl covered drywall, Fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP), and painted steel.
  • A standard core composition of a solid layer of expanded polystyrene (EPS). Optional core compositions can include polyisocyanurate, rock wool, and more.
  • A partition solution that creates an open environment, both aesthetically and environmentally.
  • Flexibility in both placement and design with heights ranging from 4’ to 16’.
  • Freestanding partitions that meet the lateral load requirements established for interior wall construction by most building codes

Frequently Asked Questions

While Porta-King’s free-standing walls offer a high degree of customization and flexibility in the initial design and installation process, it is important to note that they are not intended for daily reconfiguration like some office partition systems. Porta-King’s walls are designed to be more semi-permanent, providing a sturdy and secure solution for dividing space in industrial and commercial settings.

Unlike lightweight, free-standing sectional partitions, Porta-King’s system is anchored to the floor, ensuring stability and durability. Although moving the walls is always an option if needed, users should not expect to reconfigure the layout on a daily basis. Porta-King’s free-standing walls are best suited for applications where a reliable, long-term solution is required for separating and organizing space effectively.

Porta-King’s free-standing wall systems are designed with an independent support system integrated into the wall itself, allowing for virtually unlimited lengths of a single run. This unique feature sets Porta-King apart from other partition systems, as there are no restrictions on the maximum length of a continuous wall section. Whether you need to divide a large warehouse, create an extended corridor, or partition a sprawling open space, Porta-King can accommodate your specific requirements.

The ability to create long, uninterrupted runs of free-standing walls offers unparalleled flexibility in designing and optimizing your space, making Porta-King an ideal choice for a wide range of industrial and commercial applications.

Porta-King’s wall panels are typically supplied in a nominal 4′ width, with the height customized to meet the specific requirements of each project. To ensure a perfect fit within your unique space, Porta-King creates custom layouts and may cut some panels down to accommodate the exact dimensional requirements.

This tailored approach allows for maximum flexibility in designing and installing free-standing wall systems, as each panel is precision-manufactured to integrate seamlessly with the overall layout. By offering customizable panel sizes, Porta-King can adapt to the diverse needs of various industries and applications, delivering a wall system that optimizes both functionality and aesthetic appeal.

To ensure proper lateral support and stability, Porta-King incorporates structural steel components that are securely fastened to the foundation. The size and quantity of the steel used in the support system are carefully calculated based on factors such as the wall height, length, and the seismic zone of the installation location.

This customized approach guarantees that each free-standing wall system is engineered to withstand the specific demands of its environment, providing a safe and reliable solution for creating separate spaces within a larger area. By utilizing high-quality materials and expert engineering, Porta-King’s free-standing walls offer superior durability and performance compared to traditional partition systems.

Porta-King can supply free-standing wall systems up to 20′ tall or more, depending on the specific requirements of the project. The maximum height is determined by the structural steel support necessary to ensure stability and safety.

Porta-King commonly uses steel columns with baseplates anchored to the substrate to support these tall wall systems. While theoretically, the height can be as tall as the structural steel support allows, most of Porta-King’s free-standing wall systems are designed to be 20′ tall or less to meet the needs of various industrial and commercial applications while maintaining optimal functionality and cost-effectiveness.
