Don't know the difference between modular systems and panel systems? You're not alone.
Modular systems offer amazing flexibility. Each piece is a stand-alone furniture solution which can be combined with another modular unit to create a custom work environment that best fits each employee's work flow. Pieces can be mixed, matched, and moved easily to create endless office configurations. Although modular sounds ideal, it's usually more costly than a panel system, and does not always offer a solution to a common problem in a large work space: POWER. Panel systems offer the capability of gaining power in places where power is usually unavailable. Power is channeled through an aesthetically appealing power pole often fed from the ceiling, and can serve full power to up to four offices from one power pole.
What About Cubicles?
You may be more familiar with the term, "cubicle", which is basically an old term for the new "panel system" terminology. Cubicles have progressed into much more than the traditional gray wall systems you're probably used to seeing. Today's panel system configurations offer half-panels, three-quarter panels, panels with windows, desk-mounted panels to serve as a separator or productivity wall with modular furniture, and more.
