Post and Beam Overview

Post and Beam is an architectural framework that allows you to configure a range of work environments.

The flexible design of  Post and Beam allows for a breadth of work settings within a given space, all of which have the same cohesive architectural look.

Individual workspaces

Planning flexibility that respects the needs of the individual.

  • Use alone, or in conjunction with Duo Storage to define personal workspaces that provide both stylish storage, and seated visual privacy between coworkers.
  • Post and Beam attaches at fence height to Answer, Avenir, Kick, Montage, Series 9000 and Technology Wall.
  • Design options are virtually limitless with shelves, screens, and a host of other worktools that attach anywhere along the structure.
  • Tether brackets support worksurfaces, providing a lower cost alternative to freestanding furniture

Team Spaces

Define open spaces for teaming, collaboration, and everything else in-between.

  • Post and Beam’s anodized aluminum construction provides clean, contemporary lines with a tight fit and finish.
  • Beams route utilities overhead without impeding the free-flowing space below.
  • Use in conjunction with Duo Tall Storage to create a library-like configuration. In-fills, screens, and curtains help to define space while also providing an inspirational alternative to panel-based solutions.
  • Connects overhead to Privacy Wall.  

Technology support

  • Post and Beam’s modular power system easily works with, and connects to, a range of other Steelcase products. The outcome is an integrated technology support system that will readily handle your current, as well as future, technology requirements.
  • Power, data, and cable management components can be easily added or subtracted creating access points only where you need them.
  • Power and communication cables can be routed along beams at seated-height, standing-height, or overhead.
  • Wireless access points can be positioned on top of posts for maximum signal coverage.
  • Technology hubs feature nine power outlets and can accommodate up to twelve communication ports.
  • Powerstrips feature three power outlets and up to two communication ports.


  • Supports 90-degree and 120-degree planning.
  • Plans at three heights: seated, standing, and overhead.
  • Works with  Privacy Wall,  Modular Power,  Zone Cabling, Universal Worksurfaces, Answer, Kick, Series 9000, Avenir, Montage, and Duo.
