Demountable walls have changed the nature of interior space for good. You can read 10 reasons how they can benefit you here. Convention centers would find the cost of mounting large scale shows prohibitive if not for the development of moveable walls systems. Hospitals, research centers, educational institutions, airports and more would be hard-strapped to come up with effective and affordable ways to conduct their business were it not for demountable wall partitions. Perhaps nowhere though has the impact of moveable walls been so keenly felt as in the office. Being able to move away from fixed wall office layouts has enabled innumerable companies across the USA to get maximum use out of their very expensive office spaces and to retain the flexibility needed to compete in the global marketplace.
The Rise of Demountable Wall Systems
Drywall construction ruled the American office space for decades because it represented a much faster, easier and more affordable method of constructing walls than the old plaster and slat method. Still, however, fixed walls were fixed walls and if the circumstances of your business changed and you needed to make alterations to your office layout you had two choices: endure weeks of noise, disruption, choking dust and piles of debris, or move.
When demountable walls burst upon the scene they changed all that and today any company large or small that is serious about remaining competitive needs to consider the advantages demountable wall systems can offer their business.Both unitized and non-unitized demountable wall systems have benefits that far outstrip anything a fixed wall system could offer:
- They’re sourced from nearly 100% recycled materials.
- They can be mixed and matched to blend with any decor.
- They can be completely recycled at the end of their extraordinarily long lives.
- Both types of I-M-T demountable walls will never need repainting or resurfacing.
- Should your company move they move with you to serve you for years in your new location.
- They can be rearranged or adjusted without generating piles of debris, noxious dust clouds or company disruption like you’ll get with drywall.
Unitized Demountable Walls
Unitized demountable walls from I-M-T are designed and fabricated in our factory to your specifications and then transported to the site and assembled. This method of construction typically requires less than a third of the time it would take to fabricate an equivalent drywall system. In addition, should you decide at some future date to reconfigure your office the demountable walls can be easily disassembled and then reassembled in another location with no construction crews necessary.
Major Advantages of Unitized Demountable Walls
- Long-term flexibility.
- Lightning-fast installation.
- Able to easily accommodate utility and IT needs.
- Can be moved and reassembled by regular maintenance personnel.
If you need the option of rearranging your entire space on the fly now and in the future unitized walls are probably the way you want to go. They can be quickly disassembled and reassembled in whole or in part in another location by your regular maintenance crew on short notice.
Non-unitized or Component Based Walls
I-M-T’s non-unitized demountable wall systems are custom fit on site to accommodate a change of plans, a change of heart or an unexpected logistical hurdle. You’ll never get caught off guard or have to return to the drawing board with our component based, non-unitized walls. If there’s an adjustment needed the installers make it and the process continues without a hitch.
Major Advantages of Non-Unitized Demountable Walls
- Fully adjustable on-site.
- Easy access utility panels.
- Incredible long life just like our unitized walls.
- Future-proofed against technological advances.
Non-unitized demountable wall systems then offer a different type of flexibility. The ability to be custom fit to a specific area and then taken apart at a later date, reshaped and reassembled. So if you don’t think you’ll be rearranging your entire office layout on a regular basis you may want to consider non-unitized walls as they can be custom fit to a specific area yet still be tweaked at any time down the road.
