What do cars and moveable partitioning walls have in common?

Companies, schools, colleges, hospitals, churches, village halls, hotels, sports halls and conferences centres that have moveable partitioning walls should have them regularly serviced.

According to Mike Fine, Style’s director for the Midlands, operable walls are very much like vehicles, with routine servicing vital during their lifespan.

“Manual, semi-automatic and fully automatic moveable walls will perform better, and for longer, if they are treated well,” said Mike.

“A sign that this is becoming increasingly recognised is in the demand for our scheduled servicing and maintenance, which has soared in recent years. This is where our technicians routinely visit customers to check their wall’s operation and make any adjustments to avoid wear and tear.

“No-one would drive a car or van for years without an oil change or a service, and flexible walls that divide space are no different. They are being opened and closed frequently, contain moving parts and always benefit from being inspected by a qualified engineer who can spot potential difficulties before they arise.

“That way, some of our walls last for 20 – 25 years or more, and customers that opt for our scheduled servicing can save vast sums of money in the long run by not having to replace them.”

As well as scheduled servicing, Style’s team of field engineers is also on hand for urgent repairs, and can assist with any moveable partitioning wall even if the company didn’t originally install it.
