Trans-it is Conceptual’s modular toolkit for transition zones in the post pandemic office environment. With only some 20 modules, touchdown workstations, room dividers and quiet zone lay outs can be endlessly configurated and transformed.
The clever Trans-it connecting device guarantees a quick, tool-free and foolproof assembly of the panels. In combination with the various table top options, seating modules and accessories, an almost endless combination of configurations can be built.
Sustainability has been at the top of the list since Trans-it’s ideation phase. That is why the materials have been carefully selected. The base frame of the panels is made of wood from ecological forestry (fsc-certified) and formaldehyde-free hdf boards (e1 classification). The acoustic filling is made from recycled textiles. There is an environmentally friendly selection of fabrics available, some with oeko-tex standard 100, eu ecolabel and/or greenguard certification. At the end of life, the fabric covers can be removed and the individual materials can be sorted and disposed in an easy way.
The structure – a combination of partly perforated, partly non-perforated hdf panels with recycled textile fiber filling – guarantees optimal acoustics. Trans-it thus meets high absorption and insulation standards.
The corona virus has presented our industry and the whole world around it with major challenges. Trans-it is designed to overcome some of them. The 140 cm high panel modules provide the necessary hygiene protection at the workplace and thus the security for people to feel comfortable in this environment. Especially when using 100% pet fabrics, the surfaces can easily be disinfected by using alcohol or hydrogen peroxide and the removable covers can be washed at 30 °.
