Free Standing Office Pods
“create an acoustic room within a room in your office”
This type of modular system is becoming increasingly popular in the modern day office environment.
They are easy to assemble, expandable and allow varying degrees of visual and acoustic privacy.
The pods come in a range of different sizes and shapes as outlined below.
Round End Rooms
These allow you to create different spaces including half round pods, circular pods, half round/half square rooms, lozenge shaped rooms, and presentation pods in various sizes.
Square End Rooms
Square and half square pod configurations also allow you to create rectangular and corner room units. These modular units can be expanded to suit practically every requirement.
Round, square and half square pods can be combined to make round end modules with party walls, square end modules with party walls or open sides and round rectangular end modules with party walls.
As a general guideline, use the following dimensions as an indicator of typical usage.
- 2200mm (Height) x 6000mm (Width) x 3000mm (Depth) rectangular pod will comfortably accommodate a boardroom table with 10 chairs
- 2200mm (Height) x 3000mm (Diameter) circular pod will comfortably accommodate a meeting table with 4 chairs
