Skyfold Videos Showcase its Versatility

A selection of videos were shown at Style’s 100th Skyfold installation event at Telefonica Digital, showcasing the versatility of this vertically rising, fully automatic, acoustic moveable wall.

To view the videos, and see Skyfold in action for yourself, please visit the Skyfold section of our web site and click on Product Videos.

“It’s one of those ‘seen to be believed’ products,” said Efrem Brynin, Style’s director of Skyfold sales, “which is why we received such incredible feedback at the event. “Perhaps what you don’t appreciate by watching the videos is the level of acoustic integrity these walls deliver.
“At the Telefonica Digital event we had large numbers of people in the conference room, and when the wall was closed it completely sealed each room with no sound being heard from either side.
“Another benefit of this product is the quality and range of finishes. Due to the panels being made separate to the wall mechanism, and attached on site, it allows far more flexibility in terms of design and you really can let your imagination run wild when deciding how you would like the wall to look.
“It can also cope with a range of room sizes and arrangements, including very high ceilings, large expansive floor space and stepped auditoriums.”

Skyfold 100 Event a Huge Success

A gathering of 50 architects, contractors and clients were at Telefonica Digital’s offices in London to celebrate Style’s 100th UK Skyfold installation.

Awards were given to architects T P Bennett, who specified the wall, main contractor Overbury, and Telefonica Digital followed by a demonstration of Skyfold – the unique, vertically rising, fully automatic, acoustic moveable wall which is housed in the ceiling cavity.

In addition, recognition was given for the attendance of Roy O’Flanagan who was the first UK architect to specify Skyfold ten years ago and had the foresight to understand the benefits of what the product could offer as a space division product.

Julian Sargent, Style’s group managing director said, “Telefonica Digital’s offices are a showpiece for modern working and productivity, and are designed with true innovative thinking.“Skyfold complements the working environment perfectly because it is also at the leading edge of forward thinking when it comes to creating flexible space.”

Telefonica has two operable walls in its conference room so that it can be expanded into one large space, or divided in two or three separate rooms , enjoying total privacy thanks to Skyfold’s incredible 51dB acoustic rating.

Because Skyfold is housed in the ceiling cavity, it is completely undetectable when you enter the room, maximising the entire floor space and gliding silently into place with the push of a button.

“The level of attendance at this event demonstrates how much interest there is in this innovative moveable wall solution,” said Julian.
“When we were first appointed as Skyfold’s exclusive UK agent ten years ago we knew it was an astonishing product, but we never imagined how dramatically demand would take off once awareness grew.
“We’re now specified for an additional 20 installations this year alone, interest is at an all time high and we are serving clients in a wide range of sectors including corporate, hospitality, local authority and education.”

Wide Ranging Moveable Wall Solutions the Key to Success

In this month’s news the team at Style is heralding its 100th Skyfold installation at the Telefonica Digital building in London’s Regent Street.

Yet according to Style’s group finance director, Tony Enticknap, the company’s success is based upon its ability to find a solution for all projects and budgets, and its overall approach to business.

“We’ve grown steadily and consistently through some of the toughest economic conditions ever experienced,” said Tony, “and I put that growth down to us being resolute as a company that we will continue to invest inwardly in the best people, training, systems, processes, quality standards and work practices.
“On top of that we’ve also developed what I believe to be the finest range of moveable wall solutions in our sector, from simple folding walls which are ideal for community centres and village school classrooms through to hugely high profile projects such as our installation at the ExCel centre which was the largest in Europe.”

Style is the exclusive UK agent for DORMA, Skyfold and SWG offering such an extensive product range that a solution can be found whatever the requirement.

More importantly, companies choosing Style enjoy a high quality specialist that has won the AIS contractors gold award 5 times, is committed to sustainable solutions with the first ever UK EPD certification for its DORMA range, and is accredited to UKAS standards for ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management Systems, ISO 14001:2004 Environmental Management System and BSOHSAS 18001:2007 Occupational Health & Safety Management System which was an industry first for a moveable partitioning walls specialist.

The company’s web site also offers architects and specifiers an NBS specification service, and Style provides CPD seminars throughout the UK which enjoy outstanding feedback.

“We have remained firmly focused on developing a market leading proposition of the best people, processes and products,” said Tony. “And as we enjoy continued expansion it is rewarding that our inward investment, and unwavering commitment to quality, is acknowledged and appreciated by our clients.”

100th Skyfold is Only the Beginning

As Style celebrates its 100th Skyfold installation with a special event at the Telefonica Digital Building in London next month, Julian Sargent, group managing director, says this is just the beginning for this incredible moveable wall solution.

“We’ve installed 100 Skyfolds across the UK since becoming their exclusive UK agent,” said Julian, “and the more the awareness grows of this incredible partitioning wall, the more demand there is.”

Skyfold is a unique vertically rising, fully automatic, acoustic moveable wall with up to Rw 56dB acoustic rating which means meetings can be run concurrently with complete privacy. Housed in the ceiling cavity and operated by the push of a button, no-one would even know a moveable wall was in the room until activated.

It glides silently and effortlessly into place, and because it is housed in the ceiling it retains maximum floor and wall space. It also comes in a vast array of finishes and creates a breathtaking, yet hugely practical solution, for virtually any room size and ceiling height. It can also divide stepped auditoriums with ease, making this a truly ingenious solution for the creation of flexible space in any environment.

“We’ve had demand from market sectors including corporate, hospitality, education and local authority, “ said Julian, “mainly because this product sells itself.
“Once architects, specifiers, contractors and end-user clients see it in operation, and appreciate the wide-ranging benefits, we always get incredible feedback. “As a result, specifications are soaring and we see our 100th UK installation as just the beginning.
“Interest has never been greater, and we have some stunning examples of Skyfold in operation in places such as Deloittes, Hotel La Tour, Coventry University, Henderson Global Investors, Gensler Architects, Brunel University and Tuke School; all of which can be viewed on the case studies page of our web site.

Style Celebrates its 100th Skyfold Installation with a Special Event

Style Partitions, the UK’s leading moveable walls specialist, is celebrating its 100th UK installation of Skyfold at O2 Telefonica’s offices in Central London.

The special event to be hosted in May is aimed at architects, specifiers, contractors and clients and will demonstrate the benefits of the Skyfold system, combined with speeches, refreshments and networking.

Julian Sargent, Style’s group managing director said, “We’re extremely excited about showcasing our 100th Skyfold installation at such a prestigious location.

“As a fully automatic, vertically rising folding wall, Skyfold is housed in the ceiling cavity and lowers and rises silently through a simple push button operation, occupying no floor space at all.
“Since its arrival in the UK its popularity has rocketed as it not only offers a superbly practical solution for creating flexible space, but a genuinely stylish one too. It really does have to be seen for the benefits to be truly appreciated and we’re thrilled to make our 100th installation at Telefonica.”

The benefits of Skyfold are unrivalled in the market place, because by folding into the ceiling cavity it is out of sight when not in use without compromising any floor space.

Yet when lowered, it automatically seals itself to the floor and walls, which is what gives it its stunning acoustic performance of up to 56dB. It also comes in an extensive range of finishes enabling it to be matched seamlessly into any room design.

Numbers for the event are limited and it is by invitation only, however if you would like to register your interest for this event, please email Clare Jefferson at clare.jefferson@style-partitions.co.uk
