Custom Office Partitions and Components

Standard Partitions

Standard Partition Lightweight: 12-15 lbs, 2.25" thick, almost any size or color you specify. Cloth surface is tackable, and absorbs sound .36 NRC rating.

Standard LC Partition: This panel consists of a solid foam core, that is fire rated, waterproof and sound absorbant. We use a fire resistant textured cloth surface for the exterior, and finally, we use a specially extruded 6063 airscraft grade aluminum frame, with an anodized surface. The anodizing creates a very hard, attractive surface that will not chip, crack or peel. Each panel is 2.25" thick.

  • Lightweight: A medium sized 4'x6' panel only weighs 12.5 lbs.
  • Sound Absorbant: A 4'x6' panel is rated at .36 NRC
  • Tackable: The surface will accept pins, tacks, and post-it notes
  • Waterproof: There is nothing in the panel that water can degrade.
  • Custom sized: We make them to your size specifications.

LC partitions can be oriented to stand horizontal or vertical or any combination. All sides can connect. They can easily and quickly connect to each other from any side, at any angle, in any configurations, vertical or horizontal, or stand alone using our LC Connector legs. These panels will beautifully accent your office or room. Perfect for telemarketing applications or for an office that gets rearranged from time to time. LC partitions are designed for the businessperson who wants to quickly divide up an office without spending a fortune. No tools or assembly required. These partitions are easy to carry and set-up with "snap-on" connectors, and move or rearrange later if needed. LC partitions are strong and attractive enough to be permanent if so desired. Each LC partition is assembled using removeable screws. You can actually take the partitions apart and remove the cloth for washing (or replacing) and put the cloth back on once it's clean.You can actually hit a panel with a hammer and the dent will not show through the cloth since the cloth (a stretch fabric) normally springs right back to it's original flat surface

Sound Absorption

NRC (noise reduction coefficient) test data for standard LC Partition (Size tested– 4'x6'):

Standard LC panel rating: .36 NRC†

Frequency 125 htz 250 htz 500 htz 1000 htz 2000 htz 4000 htz
Room Decay Rate .308 .362 .372 .443 .433 .416
Decay Rate w/Panel .276 .241 .256 .259 .276 .228
Absorbed by Panel 10.4% 33.4% 31.2% .41.5% 36.3% 45.2%

Notice the good absorbtion qualities between 1000 htz and 2000 htz. This is the frequency found most prevailant in a typical office environment.

Although the LC panel absorbs sound well, in it's standard form, there are cases where extra sound absorbtion might be needed, as in sound recording rooms, etc. We can offer this feature.

Extra sound absorbtion. LC Panels can be equipped with our special "sound boards" laminated under the cloth surface if desired. This surface absorbs sound well, and blocks sound transfer because the weight of the panel is tripled. The result is a .46 NRC rating which equates to a 25% increase in sound absorbtion. Great sound blockage. The charge is $69 extra per panel.

Fabrics

Textured woven fabric colors

LC Polar Fleece non woven fabric.

LC Design Systems two tone office partitions and panels Non woven colors

This fabric is about 1/8" thick and is more sound absorbant than any woven fabric. It is also hydrophobic, meaning that it does not absorb liquids. This makes it especially good for panels since it repels liquid stains. Like our woven fabrics, it can be cleaned with soap and water, and is machine washable. LC Polar Fleece is made from recycled Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and is considered "green".

Custom Colors

Variations

LC Acrylic Partitions
LC Design Systems acrylic partitions and panels

Shown are examples of acrylic panels. Semi or full sizes, double or single pane. We can put the acrylic inside the panel in any size, and any location within the panel. Acrylic is available in clear, smoked, various colors, translucent or opaque.



Notice this large acrylic panel.We still have the protective film over the acrylic. This panel has double electrical conduits mounted low in the panel, and overall, it measures 6'x6'

Acrylic
LC Design Systems acrylic partitions and panels Notice the LC Full Acrylic (smoked) panels. The use of maroon and medium blue fabric (left) is attractive.
LC Acrylic Framing
acrylic framing Here is an expample of our acrylic framing. This fits inside of our aluminum panel framing. We have a single pane design, and a double pane design. The double pane blocks sound better. The price varys with the amount of acrylic needed. Fax or email your preferred dimensions, and we'll quote it for you.
Stacked
LC Design Systems acrylic stacked office partitions and panels LC panels can be "stacked". The metal stands used in this layout were custom-made units: 1"x2" steel rectangular tubing, painted white, nice and strong, ($61 each). This display system was made for "Monday Enterprises" and can be snapped together in about 15 minutes.
L-Shaped Partitions
LC Design Systems acrylic l-shaped office partitions and panels These are L-shaped panels. (add $20 for L shape) These can be snapped onto a desk or table. Part of the panel can extend to the floor if desired (as shown). You specify the size (up to certain maximums), and the "cutout" size, then color or surface, and we'll make your panels.
Desk Toppers
LC Design Systems desk toppers otherwise known as shelf units for desks These are handy shelf units that sit on your desk to increase your desk space. We can make these in any shape, double deckers, etc. No holes are required for mounting. They can be installed or taken off anytime. They weight around 30 lbs, and are very strong, holding several hundred pounds is no problem. They are quite handy for large printers, scanners, office supplies, etc. The shelf is normally a white melamine surface, with a black circumferential rubber bumper, and the frame can be painted any color. $165 each for most average sizes.
Angle Top partitions
LC Design Systems two tone office partitions and panels using Angle top panels These panels can be made with almost any angle specified. Several can be connected together such as these panels created for Exit Realty in Corpus Christy, Texas.
Two Tone partitions
LC Design Systems two tone office partitions and panels The is a simple process where we cut the cores with a complex hand drawn curve, and upholster the cores with two different colors. This can yield a very attactive and unique look. Any two colors can be used. We can even insert a third color in there. In this industry, most panels are fairly boring to look at. So, this is a way for the panels to make more of a statement about your business or image. This work adds to the labor cost, but not much. Each cut costs $25. So, for a two tone panel, the additional cost is $25. For three colors, the additional cost is $50, and so on.
Pass-Through Port
LC Design Systems office partitions and panels  with pass through port on panel Need a pass-through port for extension cords, video cameras, or maybe a pipe? No problem. Here is an example of a 2 inch diameter pass through hole. The flange hardware is removable, in case you wish to enlarge the hole later. We can put this pass through anywhere in the panel core. The cost is $20 extra per panel.
Doors with Frames
LC Design Systems office partitions and panels using Doors with frames We offer doors with frames. ($350 for 30"W, $375 for 36"W) The frames are made from heavy 2'x2'x.125" steel tubing, mig-welded at all intersections, very strong. Normally painted with light grey epoxy paint for durability. There is a 4" header at the top. The door comes with a lockable knob and keys. We make the door frames quite strong because the door is a standard door, not a flimsy lightweight. This way, if it ever gets damaged, you can get a standard replacement door locally. (Home Depot or Lowes)
Dry Erase Partitions
LC Design Systems office partitions and panels using dry erase panels We can also include dry erase panels that we have made. As you can see, we can make the dry erase almost any size, and put it anywhere in the panel.
Sliding Window
LC Design Systems two tone office partitions and panels with window panel Here is an example of a sliding window panel, with a screen. We can put these windows anywhere in the panel, and many sizes are available, usually in 12" increments. This panel also features our E-panel conduits for electrical power. Lot's of labor involved.
Custom Carts
LC Design Systems two tone office partitions and panels with custom carts Sometimes you need one especially for shipping or trade show displays. We design these carts to load/unload quickly. There is no size limit. We can make them any size, vertical (to reduce the warehouse footprint) or horizontal. We make them easy to load/unload, and they can be lockable. They can even be stackable if needed. We normally employ a metal frame with painted wood siding. They are strong, and economical. Prices can range from $700 to $1500 for the really big ones. It all depends upon what your needs are.
Notched Partitions
LC Design Systems two tone office partitions and panels with notched panel Sometimes you need one especially for shipping or trade show displays. We design these carts to load/unload quickly. There is no size limit. We can make them any size, vertical (to reduce the warehouse footprint) or horizontal. We make them easy to load/unload, and they can be lockable. They can even be stackable if needed. We normally employ a metal frame with painted wood siding. They are strong, and economical. Prices can range from $700 to $1500 for the really big ones. It all depends upon what your needs are.
Special Prints
LC Design Systems two tone office partitions and panels with printed fabric We can print almost anything on fabric, at $20-30 per yard. That fabric can be used in our LC Partitions. Your artwork or pictures can be used. It can be removed for machine washing, if needed. Big panoramic views can be created. On the other hand, we can also print the pictures on a plastic surface, if sound absorbtion is not a big issue.
Projection Screens
LC Design Systems two tone office partitions and panels with Projection Screen Any of our Acrylic panels can be fitted with a projection screen film. This allows you to be able to see through the panel (although the view is somewhat blurry), but the acrylic will be able to capture animated video from a video projector. It's a great way to stop traffic, attract attention, and create a unique atmosphere.

 

† About the NRC Test: The NRC test is nationally recognized as a standard scientific test to determine how much sound an object absorbs. Test procedures are as follows:

A sound frequency is generated (with a tone generator) inside a room. The sound signal is cut, and the sound "decay" is measured. (how long it takes for the sound to die). This test is done for 6 frequencies: 125, 250, 500, 1000, 2000, and 4000 htz. The rate of sound decay is noted for each sound frequency (baseline decay rates).

Then, the panel is placed inside the room. The same test is performed again, at the same 6 frequencies. The new decay rates are noted.

The new decay rates are shorter (in fractions of seconds) because the panel will absorb some sound. You calculate the difference between the baseline decay rates and the new rates, and the difference (in %) is what the panel absorbed for each frequency. Then you calculate the average of the middle 4 frequencies for a final result. This is the NRC acoustic rating.
