Room dividers and portable partitions are versatile school furnishings. Not only can they instantly create spaces for classrooms or meetings, they can also provide an effective crowd control solution, especially when coupled with stanchions, message holders, floor stands and gates. People can be guided in the right direction and queued while waiting in line with these simple structures that are completely customizable to the space. Open houses, events, games and more can bring a lot of parents, students and visitors to a school. Many times certain areas are closed to the general public, depending on the event. Utilizing stanchions and other crowd control products helps to create a safer environment, minimize visitor confusion and makes things easier for the staff.
