Glazed Classroom Partitions from Invotek


Invotek classroom partitions are ideal for primary and secondary schools where durability, high impact resistance, functionality and style are important considerations. The recyclable strawboard partitions lock up carbon from the atmosphere, give a firm base for fixing whilst providing good acoustic sound reduction for noisy children and allowing the unusual glazing elements to be easily incorporated,
