Automated glass walls are ideal for retailers and lobbies


Banks, retailers, bars and restaurants looking to add flexibility at the front of their premises should consider the very latest fully automatic, glass moveable walls.

That’s the advice of Mike Fine, director of Style Partitions for the midlands, who explains that the latest systems are not only highly secure but can be opened and closed with the push of a button.

“With advancements in technology, and by using strengthened glass, glazed operable wall systems are being used more widely than ever before,” said Mike, “a great example being Style’s recent installation for a branch of Santander where a DORMA Varitrans system provided a safe out-of-hours ATM lobby.

“When open it increases the bank’s floor space during the day, welcoming customers inside to access the ATM, whilst at night they can enjoy the use of an attractive glass lobby to complete their banking transactions in safety.”

According to Mike, more banks, retailers, bars and restaurants should look at fully automatic, glazed moveable wall systems as they really enhance the consumer experience.

“One of the reasons many outlets have not opted for flexible frontage has been due to the hassle of opening and closing them, as well as security concerns,” said Mike.

“However, now that they can be activated by simply pushing a button, and are very secure, their popularity will soar in the coming years.

“Our advice is to look very seriously at these systems if you are specifying any premises where the ‘frontage appeal’ is critical for the customer, as the advantages are widespread.”
