Abstract

Enclosure 10, top view shown in Fig. 1, provides a freestanding, private, sound-absorbing cubicle in a large room to hold a table 11 and a few chairs 12 for interviews, small conferences, and the like. Being built up from a number of straight and angled bolt-together units 20, the enclosure is easily movable. Figs. 2 and 3 detail one of the angled units 20, which is about seven feet high, one foot wide, and one foot thick. Identical plywood end panels 21 have small holes 22 for claw-type tee nuts and wing bolts. Large holes 23 provide arm access for tightening the wing bolts in the opposite panel. Thinner (about 1/8 inch) side panels and top panels 24 are covered with a glued foam sheet 25 overhanging end panels 21 by a small amount.

Privacy Enclosure for Large Rooms

Enclosure 10, top view shown in Fig. 1, provides a freestanding, private, sound- absorbing cubicle in a large room to hold a table 11 and a few chairs 12 for interviews, small conferences, and the like. Being built up from a number of straight and angled bolt-together units 20, the enclosure is easily movable. Figs. 2 and 3 detail one of the angled units 20, which is about seven feet high, one foot wide, and one foot thick. Identical plywood end panels 21 have small holes 22 for claw-type tee nuts and wing bolts. Large holes 23 provide arm access for tightening the wing bolts in the opposite panel. Thinner (about 1/8 inch) side panels and top panels 24 are covered with a glued foam sheet 25 overhanging end panels 21 by a small amount. An upholstery-type fabric band 26 is then stretched over the foam and stapled to the end panels with the seam at the bottom. The bottom could, alternatively, be left open for insertion of sand-filled weight bags for greater stability. To finish off the exposed ends of the enclosure, a single end panel can be covered with foam and fabric and attached to one of the units 20 with a VELCRO* strip or similar fastener. * Trademark of Velcro USA, Inc.
