Desktop Privacy Panels

A desk privacy panel is an excellent way to provide staff with a space of their own in crowded offices. They are easy to install on most office furniture and come in many sizes. Staples carries many desk privacy panels, including brands such as Bush Business Furniture, Alera and Balt.

A Private and Efficient Workspace
Many modern offices use modular furniture that is compact and economical, but open plan space can be noisy and distracting. These panels create a barrier around each employee's desk, giving them a private area where they can focus on the task at hand. Most of these products are 17 to 18 inches high, so they reduce distractions when seated but don't block sight lines while standing. Managers can still keep an eye on the office, and employees can still spot coworkers from across the room.

Enhance Security with Privacy Panels
In addition to providing staff with a comfortable and private work area, these products are an ideal choice for offices that handle sensitive or confidential information. Place one between visitors and desk surfaces to protect client or patient records from casual observation, or use them in the classroom to guard against cheating. A barrier between work surfaces can also keep each employee's papers separate, preventing accidental mixups. Select panels include matching side and front screens designed to completely enclose a desk and provide total privacy.

Simple Installation Options
Most panels are simple to install. They have clamps that slip onto the edge of a desk and hold panels securely without damaging furniture surfaces. Adjustable fittings accommodate surfaces between 0.5 and 2 inches thick, depending on the product chosen. They also come in many different widths, from 21.5 to 69 inches so that you can use them on the front or the sides of most desks. Most protective panels are very light and install in just a few minutes with no tools. Use them as a permanent barrier between desks, or move them from place to place to accommodate changing privacy needs.

Practical Finishes for any Office Need
Many of these products feature translucent materials such as acrylic or polycarbonate. They let light through while obscuring documents or computer screens. Most also have metal frames that provide sturdy support for the protective panel. Some products offer alternate surface options. Tackboard surfaces provide users with space for reminders or personal touches, while magnetic whiteboard surfaces are ideal for letting coworkers know when you're away from your desk or daily to-do lists. Optional accessories such as storage trays provide additional customization options.

Built for Busy Offices
Most desk privacy panels meet or exceed ANSI and BIFMA standards for performance and safety, ensuring they can withstand constant use in commercial environments. Select products are made in the United States, and many come with extensive commercial furniture warranties.

Desktop panels reduce distractions and noise in busy offices and protect sensitive documents from casual snooping without blocking light or sight lines. These products are easy to install, and some have surface finishes that enhance productivity. Browse the many privacy panels available at Staples and create a comfortable working environment for office staff.
