With such diverse use of ever-changing space, Style worked with contractor, Epps Construction of Ashford, and Architect, Lee Evans of Canterbury, to create a flexible arrangement downstairs in between the cafe and lounge area, and upstairs in the main hall/classroom. This featured an L-shaped configuration with inset pass doors and one stack area.

DORMA Variflex, in a stylish cream laminate finish, was specified by the architects as the most suitable option, offering ease of manoeuvre and a finish that complemented the aesthetics of the church.

With its many design and constructional variants, DORMA Variflex is ideal for any application where the purpose is to help people meet, communicate and generally feel comfortable in their surroundings.

“We have a great deal of experience working with churches, and are therefore very sensitive to their requirements,” said Keith Way, Style’s director for the South East.

“By using Variflex, we not only provided a system that is effortless to open and close, but it is also extremely neat, has a beautiful finish, and offers privacy through its 52 dB acoustic rating."
