ADVANCED MODULAR WALL PANEL SYSTEMS
WHAT IS EVERPANEL?
EverPanel is a modular wall panel system that consists of specially designed lightweight wall panels that interconnect to create walls for offices, residential spaces and commercial locations. The EverPanel system can be installed in minutes by only 2 people, allowing for complete large office builds in less than a day and for reconfiguration of walls as needed. Panels are easy to clean using standard household cleaners and are stored compactly and transported efficiently.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF USING EVERPANEL?
Having a modular system like EverPanel allows for tremendous flexibility. No tools, contractors or extra building materials are required meaning that you don’t need to disrupt your team with noisy and dirty construction. Our panel system is designed to be used again and again to create unique configurations for offices, residences, retail spaces, and public facilities. Simply break down EverPanel room dividers and bring them with you to another location. Additionally, EverPanel is water resistant and may be used in wet or moist areas where standard sheetrock, wood, or other materials aren’t suited.
HOW BIG ARE THE PANELS?
There are 8 EverPanel sizes, which can be mixed and matched as necessary for your specific floor plan and layout.
IS EVERPANEL PATENTED?
EverPanel currently has multiple functional and design patents pending on its unique modular wall panel system. The panels incorporate unique functionality that has never been used before - from its unique connection system to its internal support structure, the EverPanel truly is a revolution in modular and temporary wall system design.
WHO USES EVERPANEL?
EverPanel is used by offices, residences, government agencies, retail spaces, events, exhibitions, and anyone who needs a demountable wall system. EverPanel is ideal for creating conference rooms, offices, cubicles, factory spaces, apartment shares, and for converting raw spaces such as lofts, basements, warehouses and bare retail space into multi-office/multi-room spaces. Anyone who wants to avoid sheetrock, wood, paint, tape, studs, and other standard construction materials can use EverBlock to quickly deploy a wall. Anyone looking to minimize downtime and eliminate the noise and dust from construction is a perfect EverPanel candidate.
WHERE TO BEGIN DESIGNING AN EVERPANEL WALL?
EverPanel has a simple and fun 3D Virtual Builder tool which enables users to build and design walls, dividers, and complete rooms. Browse the Design Library and drop in one of our hundreds of pre-built designs, such as offices, bedrooms, conference rooms and sales areas. Place pre-built objects into the builder and add accessories as needed to meet your requirements. Please visit the following link to access the 3D Virtual Builder: https://build.everblocksystems.com/
HOW STABLE IS AN EVERPANEL WALL?
EverPanel walls are quite stable, when assembled in the proper configuration. When building walls, we recommend using corners and columns to add stability to your design. We also recommend adding columns in the form of “L’s” or “T’s” to each side of a wall, for additional support. In walls longer than 20ft. we recommend adding a middle column as well. Add Lug Connectors as needed between stacked and adjacent panels for additional strength and place Inter-Panel Connectors between adjacent panels to prevent separation.
WHAT ARE THE PANELS MADE OF?
The blocks are made of a high impact polypropylene plastic with color additives. Each block is also outfitted with UV inhibitors to protect the color and material if used outdoors. EverBlock meets all standards for material safety for both children and adults.
CAN I INCLUDE A DOOR OR WINDOW?
Yes, EverPanel offers an accordion door system which works seamlessly with the blocks. We also offer various sized polycarbonate window panels that work with traditional EverPanel sections, allowing you to see though the window panels.
If you want to insert your own door, window, or accessory, we recommend reinforcing the area around by framing out the opening as you would a traditional door or window. You can screw right into EverPanel using standard sheetrock screws.
CAN I HANG A TRADITIONAL SWINGING DOOR?
It is possible to use a local contractor to frame out a standard door, as they would with traditional sheetrock walls. This requires reinforcement of the panels surrounding the door, either by using our L-shape extrusion to fasten the panels to the floor, ceiling, or adjacent fixed wall.
CAN I HANG ART FROM EVERPANEL?
Yes, EverPanel is stable enough to hang standard pictures and paintings and is ideal for creating gallery walls and art display walls. You can either drill into EverPanel to place a mounting screws or can use wire to hang art using loops placed around lugs placed at the top of the wall. We do not recommend hanging art that projects far off the wall (such as animal busts) and which could create a weight imbalance.
WHERE IS EVERPANEL MANUFACTURED?
EverPanel is proudly manufactured 100% in the USA, in Bronx, New York. We ship our products globally.
HOW ARE EVERPANEL SHIPPED?
WHAT COLORS DO THE BLOCKS COME IN?
At the moment, EverPanel is only available in White, however we do offer accessory EverBlock’s that are used to add a splash of color to wall designs. Blocks are inserted above or below standard EverPanels and can be used to create patterns and visual interest. We also offered colored finishing caps which can be used to add a splash of color on the top of pony walls, in window openings, or on top of cubicles.
EverBlock offers a wide palette of color options and the blocks come in 16 standard colors:
Premium colors Gold and Silver are available. Custom colors are available by request, subject to minimum orders and lead times.
ARE THE BLOCKS SOUNDPROOF?
Standard EverPanel have surprisingly strong sound dampening qualities, better than most standard temporary walls. Each panel consists of a 3” internal air chamber and two composite panels fastened around a framework skeleton. The air provides both a level of thermal and sound insulation.
Optional acoustic foam insulation is available at an additional cost and must be specified at the time of ordering. This foam will both further dampen sound and provide additional thermal insulation benefits.
The largest contributor to sound transmission is the open area above a temporary wall. Some thought should be given to closing this area to prevent unwanted sound migration.
HAVE THE PANELS GONE THROUGH A FIRE TEST?
EverPanel has undergone rigorous fire testing and passes ASTM E-84 at Class C. This signifies that EverPanel has has passed rigorous flame spread requirements as well as produces smoke less than the maximum permitted under Class C.
CAN I BUILD A HOUSE WITH EVERPANEL?
Theoretically EverPanel can be used to build complete houses, however we have not yet constructed a full scale house using this system. While EverPanel can be used both indoors and outside and varying climates, we continue to perform testing towards the goal of creating fully modular homes using EverPanel and related accessories. We and expect to have enough information and testing ready to build a full scale home in the not-to-distant future so check back often to stay abreast of developments on this front.
DOES EVERPANEL OFFER ROOFING?
For builds that require a roof, we suggest using plastic or metal corrugated sheeting over wooden stringers. Stringers may be laid on top of EverPanel sections and fastened using zip ties or wire, though some reinforcement might be required, depending on the expected loads.
CAN I PAINT OR USE WALLPAPER WITH EVERPANEL?
It is not recommended to paint EverPanels as the surface is not conducive to painting and is difficult to adhere to.
It is possible to use standard adhesive backed wallpaper to add color or texture and to create a different, more customized look. To avoid seeing seams between panels, when applying adhesive backed wallpapers, we recommend applying standard construction seaming tape over seams before wallpaper is adhered.
ARE THE PANELS WATERPROOF?
The EverPanel themselves are waterproof.
When building walls and structures to resist water infiltration, we suggest sealing the seams between EverPanel sections using water resistant tape. This prevents water penetration from the outside inwards.
Panels may be placed in wet conditions, indoors and outside, and may even be submerged in water if needed.
