The future of moveable walls is in full automation

Architects, specifiers and contractors looking to create flexible room space should turn their attention to the very latest in fully automatic, acoustic moveable wall solutions.

That’s the view of David Louden, Style Partitions’ director for Scotland, who believes the benefits of choosing a fully automated solution are so far-reaching that they will fast become the norm.

“If you look at DORMA’s fully automatic ComfortDrive system, this is an example of a superb automatic moveable partitioning wall,” explained David.

“You can change the configuration of a room simply by pushing a button. There’s no manual handling of panels, less chance of operator damage, its effortlessly simple to open and close, and if any person or object is in the way it will reverse and retry closure before stopping completely until the route is clear.

“It means you can alter your room space quickly and with incredible ease, and it’s due to technology like this that interest in fully automatic systems is increasing at a phenomenal pace.”

As the UK’s market leading, multi-award winning moveable partitioning wall specialist, Style’s expertise spans a whole range of market sectors, including corporate, hospitality, education, local authority, religion, retail and healthcare.

Style recently installed a fully automated moveable wall system with a 55dB acoustic rating at Nottingham Trent University, enabling teaching areas to be divided into individual classrooms or opened up into open plan lecture theatres.

St. Joseph’s Primary school in Dundee also chose a fully automatic solution for its 5 metre high partitioning wall in its main hall. Here, DORMA Moveo Comfortdrive operates with a simple LCD control pad. The panels move along the track and lock into position with no manual input from the school staff.

Style is also the exclusive UK partner to Skyfold – the ingenious ‘vertically rising’ fully automatic moveable wall system housed discreetly in the ceiling cavity and activated by the push of a button.
