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"
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
Waterproof: There is nothing in the panel that water can degrade
Custom sized: We make them to your size specifications.
custom sizes up to 4'x6' only $129 each
between 4'x6' and 4'x10" only $209 (LC Supersize)
LC panels 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 Panels are designed for the businessperson
who wants to quickly divide up an office without spending a fortune. No tools
or assembly required. These panels are easy to carry and set-up with "snap-on"
connectors, and move or rearrange later if needed. LC Panels are strong and
attractive enough to be permanent if so desired. Each LC Panel is assembled
using removeable screws. You can actually take the panel 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.
Absorbed by panel
NRC (noise reduction coefficient) test
data for standard LC Panel (Size tested; 4'x6')
Standard LC panel rating: .36 NRC
the good absorbtion qualities between 1000 htz and 2000 htz. This is the frequency
found most prevailant in a typical office environment..
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.
About the NRC Test
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.
panels can be "stacked" as shown above. 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.
the LC Full Acrylic panels ($319 each, any size up to 4'x8'). The use of
maroon and medium blue fabric (above) is attractive
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.
a custom color? Here are some examples of some solid colors that we can
provide. The panel frames are anodized aluminum, silver or black, which will
never chip, crack, or peel. Going in the attic? We can make angled cuts.. Add
$30 per panel
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
offer doors w/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).
Acrylic 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. Here's a price example: $289 for a 4'x8",
up to 1/2 acrylic. Add $30 for double pane version.
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, we charge $379 for up to a 4'x8', not counting the conduits.
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'.
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.
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.
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 single pane costs $40 less per panel.
The price varys with the amount of acrylic needed. Fax or email your preferred
dimensions, and we'll quote it for you.
Single or double pane acrylic windows
are some pictures of 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. Also
shown are some really cool panels that use green metallic vinyl with charcoal
cloth. We sewed them together and covered the panels with them. A series of
these were done for Free Software Foundation.
Very creative people over there.
metallic vinyl, with cloth
is a picture of a "notch" panel. If you have pipes or ledges in your
wall, we can usually still get the panel to fit that wall.
can print almost anything on fabric, at $20-30 per yard. That fabric can be
used in our LC Panel. 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.
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.
Polar Fleece non woven fabric. 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".
No fancy color names; Being mostly men, we can't figure
out fancy color names like "Chartreuse", "Periwinkle",
"Fusia", "Mauve", "Burlywood", "Coral"
etc. Therefore, we have our simple system of color names, real plain.
Toppers. 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. Really big ones cost more.
Tone 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.
