Why Use Softwall?
You have an in-plant environmental problem - dust, fumes, noise, temperature, cross-contamination, odor, overspray, etc. You’ve considered hiring a contractor to build a traditional drywall, concrete block, or metal clad partition or enclosure. But, have you thought of installing a Soper’s Softwall partition or enclosure? Consider the following advantages of Soper’s Softwall alternative to traditional rigid wall construction …

Traditional Walls vs. Soper’s Softwall
Traditional Walls (Concrete, Metal Cladding, Drywall) Soper’s Softwall Partitions & Enclosures
Cost Traditional rigid wall construction can cost anywhere from $8 to $35 per square foot. Soper’s Softwall systems cost a fraction of what it cost to build a traditional rigid wall, leaving extra money in the budget for other concerns. Don’t forget about low future modification costs, as well.
Flexibility Difficult to modify or move. Soper’s Softwall partitions and enclosures can be easily disassembled and reinstalled or reconfigured elsewhere to accommodate new requirements.
Installation Installing a rigid wall can be expensive, messy, and time consuming. Soper’s Softwall partitions and enclosures can be installed with little or often no downtime, meaning minimal interruption to production.
