Over the last few years, businesses have become more aware of sustainability, aesthetics within that sustainability sector and a good return on investment when designing their offices. All of this is leading to the growing popularity of demountable walls, which are an upgrade from more traditional solutions.
This article will go over what exactly demountable walls are, the benefits of choosing them for your place of business and the overall flexibility of going with them for your office design solution.
What are Demountable Walls?
Demountable walls are movable, full height modular partitions or architectural constructs. A demountable wall system can be easily disassembled, moved, and reassembled when you modify or relocate your office.
These walls are aesthetically pleasing and are available in several different materials. They are commonly used in office settings where large open floor plans require more involved organization and privacy. Demountable wall systems come in many different styles and finishes, such as wood, laminate, fabric, or even glass.
Benefits of Demountable Walls
Demountable wall systems create environments that allow for any level of privacy your office needs. Privacy areas can be used for an individual office space or larger meeting areas for groups to gather without disturbing the rest of the office. Demountable walls offer incredible privacy for private conversations due to the dampened acoustics, (depending on material) as well as an optional visual barrier you can apply to get upgraded visual privacy as well.
With these walls, you can divide up your space into individualized offices or meeting rooms however you see fit. Function meets aesthetics with demountable wall systems — you can customize your workspace to promote collaboration, privacy, and visual flair.
Demountable walls are an intuitive modern design option that can be easily integrated within your office environment to help create a seamless experience and unique look. These systems allow for a customization in design tech that very little less offers on that level. As the technology continues to evolve and grow, switching out the hardware and updating these systems is straightforward and requires minimal labor.
One of the primary advantages of demountable walls is that they can adapt and change with your business as needed. Say you start out with one meeting room, but during the next couple of quarters you begin to expand and you need a bigger space or maybe a few more meeting areas. Demountable walls can accommodate space changes, shifting to meet your personnel and space needs with ease. If you want your workspace to change and grow with your business, demountable wall systems are a great choice.
Sustainability is at the top of the list when constructing new office spaces. Demountable walls can be constructed from environmentally friendly materials that hold up well over time and don’t require demolition or destruction of existing architecture to create new spaces. Most systems are made up of recycled materials, which eliminate harmful PVCs, VOCs, and off-gassing, as well as being 100% reusable and recyclable.
Whether you are interested in gaining LEED certification, or just care about reducing your carbon footprint, demountable walls are a fantastic option.
Little to No Mess
In addition to being easy to install, sustainable and aesthetically pleasing, demountable walls can also be detached, moved, and reconfigured without the production of dust or debris. No drywall means no dust and debris that could disturb or negatively impact employees and their productivity when you want to move or reconfigure the space.

Compared to drywall, demountable wall systems:
- Are more cost-effective.
- Are able to be installed faster than drywall.
- Are able to qualify for LEED credits.
- Have panels that use steel frames for more durability.
- Have panels that can be removed and reconfigured to fit other areas.

- Depreciate in seven years like furniture.
- Can be leased like furniture.
