Sliding Folding Partitions
A major benefit of these systems is that they can be floor supported, using a slim floor track. This is the most common specification as it avoids the need for costly supporting head structure. This can be important in existing buildings where no support is present, and would be prohibitively expensive to install. With the introduction of “portacabin” auxiliary classrooms in schools this type of partition lends itself to this application.
Top hung models are available where a floor track would not be suitable, leaving floor finishes undisturbed.
The flat panels are hinged together and stack at one or both ends when not in use. One end panel is usually a pass door which can be very useful. Sound reductions of up to Rw49dB are available as standard.
These models offer the highest sound rating up to Rw58dB for flat panel moving walls with maximum flexibility of layout and stacking arrangement.
Made up of individual panels that are always top hung from a head track requiring structural support above, the panels can be stacked at the end of the partition, or remotely in a suitable stack area. Full height end pass doors and inset pass doors can be included.
Sound reduction is enhanced by moving retractable top and bottom seals which can be offered with electric operation.
All operable walls are custom built to the required sizes which range from classroom/office settings to very large sports hall and conference centre locations.
