Title: Workspace partition system

Abstract: A workspace partition system, for example, for an office building includes a relocatable cable raceway that can be positioned selectively at the belt line or at the baseline of a wall panel of the system depending on where power and data communications are required. Each wall panel of the system includes a structural frame. A raceway element can be selectively coupled to the frame in co-operation with any transverse member of the frame. Front and rear cover plates can be attached to mechanically protect cabling within the raceway. This design allows the panel to be reconfigured on site to change the location of the raceway.
