Some architects have expressed concern that a moveable wall can only be installed if there’s plenty of room to open, close and stack it.
Yet, thanks to two ingenious solutions from Style, even rooms with very limited floor space can be divided.
Skyfold Zenith is a vertically rising, fully automatic, acoustic moveable wall housed discreetly in the ceiling cavity, therefore taking up no floor space at all when not in use. With a push of a button it lowers effortlessly into place, and has a thin path of travel which means its ideal for areas that may have obstructions - for example, busy rooms or those filled with fixtures, fittings, furniture or other obstacles.
Dorma Variflex ML, is another outstanding solution with a reduced wall thickness of just 88mm, but sound insulation up to Rw 58dB.
“When space is limited, some architects, specifiers, contractors and end-user clients dismiss the idea of trying to sub-divide it through a flexible room configuration,” said Julian Sargent, Style’s group managing director.
“But this doesn’t need to be the case, and the Skyfold and Dorma products both offer very different solutions when space is tight.
“Making the best use of a room often means areas can be busy, whether it’s a company meeting room, a university lecture hall, a hotel, conference centre or local authority building.
“That’s where we can help. As exclusive UK partners to Skyfold and Dorma, we have products that will fit into the tightest of gaps and have to be seen to be believed.
“Better still, the acoustics are phenomenal, and they can be styled in a range of finishes to complement any interior design.”
