Having been fortunate enough to never have had a full time office job, I’ve mostly avoided the ignominy of the infamous cubicle. Except for a couple of day-long temp stints, my knowledge of the cubicle’s frequently problematic distribution of space comes to me second hand, and it begins with being assaulted by an office mate’s blasé phone conversations and ends with the hourly imploration to “check out this email.”

Cubicle Wall Extenders by Obex Create an Oasis of Productive Solitude
In fact (from what I’ve heard, mind you) there can be no end to the annoyances proffered by a busybody cubicle neighbor. That’s why Obex’s cubicle wall extenders are such a Godsend to the put upon, the bothered—the peaceable soul who only wishes to be left to do his/her job in peace.
These clever attachable extenders/partitions/dividers are a great solution to the often pressing need for greater privacy. Offered in unadorned tile, fabric wrapped acoustical tile, and polycarbonate, the attachable extenders come in three heights—12”, 18”, and 24”—and multiple lengths—from two to six feet in one foot increments. For those with less conventional configurations, custom sizes are also available.
Obex’s Cubicle Wall extenders come in 20 standard fabrics and five standard polycarbonate colors, with frames in three standard trim colors. Bespoke finish options are available as well—custom-printed tiles containing company logos, natural scenes, or motivational sayings. And Obex’s adjustable brackets fit existing infrastructure of varying widths (from 1-5/8"to 3¾”): “No need to tear down existing cubicles. No damage to existing panels. Easy to install, less than five minutes with an allen wrench we provide.”
