The Elan double skin steel partition system is a high quality, fully  demountable double skin steel partitioning system. Providing flexible solutions for both office and factory applications, where appearance, looks and durability and sound absorbancy are important.  This system is available in both non-fire and fire rated versions.

This industrial partition is also used to create open individual workstations without personnel feeling trapped inside a workstation. The Elan system’s half glazed option clearly segregates the individual areas effectively whilst maintaining clear visibility in all directions, as shown in the picture above.

Double skin steel partition was used at this site to not only protect staff from possible injuries but also, to reduce the effect of noise. Noise reduction capabilities can also be offered, with potential noise reduction of up to 36dB.
