Education Sector Chooses Skyfold

Interest in Skyfold from schools, colleges and universities is accelerating at a dramatic rate, with Style enjoying unprecedented demand for this outstanding fully automatic moveable wall.

As a vertically rising, operable wall that is housed in the ceiling cavity, Skyfold is ideal for lecture theatres, school halls, dance studios, arts centres and auditoriums. Hence the reason enquiries for Skyfold are seeing such a marked increase as educational bodies seek to use their rooms flexibly, whilst also maximising floor space.

“We’ve just completed two superb Skyfold installations at Brunel University and Coventry University,” said Julian Sargent, Style’s group managing director, “and the level of enquiries has never been so high from the education sector.

“There is no doubt in my mind that word is spreading about the wide-ranging benefits of this product, and whenever we demonstrate Skyfold to architects, specifiers, contractors and end-user clients they are immediately sold.”

Skyfold offers an Rw 51dB rating which is essential when sub-dividing space in any teaching environment, because it ensures complete privacy either side of the wall when closed.

Because it is housed in the ceiling cavity, no wall space is used to store the panels which means floor space is unaffected. And with the press of a simple pushbutton it is effortless and smooth to operate as well as being flat, rigid and lightweight.

“We believe in years to come, most educational bodies will have a system like this to sub-divide space,” concluded Julian, “simply because its qualities cannot be matched by any other product on the market. And because it is stored in the ceiling, and operated without any manual handling, its lifespan is incredible because it incurs no potential for damage during use.”
