Our modular building systems are reusable, so when you make a change you don't lose your investment, you re-use it. Compared to conventional construction methods, that's like getting free materials, over and over as you make changes. Now, that's recycling at its best.
Relocate and Reuse the building system: 100% reusable components. The number one reason for buying National Partitions products is the ability to take down the modular building and relocate it. This feature benefits the small firm that leases because the modular building always remains your asset, when it is time to move, the modular building can go with you. This feature also benefits the larger company. Should your needs change and the modular building would be better suited elsewhere then it can be moved and you never lose your original investment.
Redesign and adapt to new requirements: Companies grow, needs change and so can the modular building. Whether you need more space or need to change your current configuration you're not locked into your original design. All panels are interchangeable and can be assembled to fit any current need.
Panel Replacement: The non-progressive post design provides the ability to swap or replace individual panels without disturbing adjacent panels. For example, if a solid wall panel now requires a door it can be switched out for a door panel in a matter of minutes.
Reduces Labor Cost by Up To 50%: This could be a very conservative figure. Considering the installation speed of National Partitions products and the reduction in trades necessary to build, you could find this savings tremendous. It takes only one crew to assemble a National Partitions modular office, and several trades like drywall crews, glazers, carpenters, painters, and electricians etc. to build conventionally. The larger the project, the more the savings.
No Engineering or Architectural Fees: Our design service is included with our package. Each job gets detailed drawings and a complete bill of materials. The product is pre-engineered and can meet any building code. At most you may be required to have an engineer or architect review and seal our drawings. This is much less expensive than if they started from scratch.
Permits Are Not Always Needed: Small modular offices within a plant can usually be assembled without permit. Consult your local building department for verification.
Modular Offices Always Cost Less Than Drywall Construction: Compare any project fairly, each office is to have identical specifications, and each is to perform to the same requirements. National Partitions will always cost less. Add to this the other modular benefits, and the accelerated depreciation allowed, and you will easily see why National Partitions products have become so popular. The savings and advantages of modular construction are so much greater, that many companies no longer consider drywall construction for any of their inplant construction projects.
Faster Occupancy So You Can Get Back to Business: Installs up to 75% faster than stick-built. The standard small modular office is assembled and ready to use in a few hours, with conventional construction that time can be weeks. Weeks of subcontractors and inspections can put any company behind schedule and this can translate directly into money lost. The faster you are back to normal the faster you get back to business.
Fewer Plant Disruptions will Minimize Productivity Loss: Loss of productivity can be expensive. All construction, even modular, causes plant disruption. However, the longer it takes to complete a project, the more disruption you get. A serious evaluation of costs would include this often over looked expense, most people are amazed how fast these costs add up. For an estimate, multiply the number of people in the area of construction by just 10 minutes of distractions, then multiply that by the number of days it takes to complete the project, from this you can determine the number of hours lost, now multiply this by the average cost per labor hour. The loss of productivity is real and expensive.
Less Mess to Contend With Will Lower Clean-up Costs: Sealing off areas, and detailed cleaning of equipment all can be expensive for the average industry, but if a company is involved in food processing or clean environments the costs to shut down and handle these are enormous. Our modular construction is much cleaner since nearly all components are pre-sized and require only assembly on site.
Green & Sustainable
Reusable Quality Products that Last: When you build a quality product that can be reconfigured and reused, that's recycling at its best. National Partitions product is quality inspected before it ships and is manufactured to exact standards. The finished product is never questionable, a clear point that drywall construction cannot make. How good is drywall construction? It depends on the work crew. The truth is that most construction, if not closely watched can turn into a disaster. A buyer must always be on the watch for shortcuts and substandard work, this is never the case with National Partitions and the proof of the quality is in the guarantee. National Partitions guarantees its modular offices for 10 years.
Energy Efficient & Stronger Construction, Designed for an Industrial Environment: When you build a strong durable product that will last a long time, that's being green. The world has too many products that are disposable or have a limited life; we focus on durability and long life. Many offices today are built using drywall and studs, leaving unsupported cavities that can be punctured easily and are not insulated. National Partitions modular offices use much stronger materials and utilize an important design feature, fully supported wall substrates using either insulated polystyrene or honeycomb cores, this gives the walls true impact resistance for long useful life and high insulating value. In addition, the availability of steel facings adds even more strength.
We also design and manufacture to minimize waste, and we recycle to save resources.
Being green is important, and this has become a growing and popular theme with many companies; but from our standpoint it's about time. We've been green for nearly five decades.
Better Sound Reduction
Better Sound Deadening than Conventional Rooms: Our modular offices create a comfortable work area even in the noisiest manufacturing plants. Installing an industrial modular office is more than just putting up walls, it involves utilizing a system that will meet the specific requirements of the plant. One of the most important requirements is noise control. Without the proper sound control an office could be rendered useless. National Partitions has sound controlled modular offices that are acoustically designed to outperform any typical conventional construction. The more extreme the noise the more Nationals Partitions products are better qualified. National Partitions can design a structure for any sound problem.
Rivals standard products:
1/8" Hardboard STC 20
1/4" Hardboard STC 25
1/2" Gypsum STC 30
National Partitions standard products:
5/8" Gypsum "X" STC 35 Over TWICE as quiet to noticeably quieter than the rivals walls
HushCore option with STC 45 performance
Test Method ASTM Standard E90
Better Fire Ratings
We use Fire Rated 5/8" Type X Gypsum: Our rivals use 1/2 regular gypsum or hardboard. Our in-plant offices have nearly three (3) times the fire resistance and much better sound deadening than our rivals. Beware of building code violations with hardboard and foam walls - this construction is illegal in most areas. This is a well-known fact in the industry - yet many manufacturers and online retailers continue to ignore the law, putting economic gain ahead of safety.
Rivals standard products:
1/8" Hardboard thermal resistance result 1.4 minutes
1/4" Hardboard thermal resistance result 2.7 minutes
1/2" Gypsum thermal resistance result 15.4 minutes
National Partitions standard products:
5/8" Gypsum "X" thermal resistance result 40.0 minutes. That's over TWICE the fire resistance than our rivals closest fire rated wall.
1-hour fire resistance option. This is an industry exclusive design using a feature packed non-progressive post system.
Test Method ANSI/ASTM Standard E119a
