By controlling your working environment, it helps improve employee comfort and productivity, as well as increase energy efficiency by controlling and maintaining the internal building and/or area temperature.

Styles can vary depending on the model you choose, including solid, mesh, or with clear panels or windows for increased visibility. Some models will even allow you to switch out the panels, depending on the season. For instance, in the summer, you can use mesh panels that let in more air, whereas, in winter, you can use solid ones to prevent that cold wind from coming in.
