Dramatic increase in demand for Skyfold in corporate and education sectors


Skyfold, the innovative, vertically rising, fully automatic, acoustic moveable wall is seeing unprecedented demand; the main focus coming from the corporate and education sectors.

According to Michael Porter, group managing director of Style, the UK’s leading moveable wall specialist, the benefits of choosing Skyfold to sub-divide room space are so strong that demand has hit at an all-time high.

“Anyone that has seen a Skyfold in operation will know what a truly impressive moveable wall it is.

“Housed discreetly in a ceiling cavity, and taking up no floor space at all when not in use, it descends gracefully at the push of a button, dividing a room into two and forming an acoustic barrier of up to 59dB.

“For company boardrooms, meeting areas and training facilities it enables the space to be changed quicky based on varying levels of use, and thanks to the top-end acoustic rating meetings can take place either side undisturbed.

“Within the education sector, Skyfold offers the added advantage of being able to divide stepped lecture theatres, which means more than one class can be held concurrently and is important in maximising the use of space.”

Style recently celebrated its 25th anniversary of leading the moveable wall sector, offering an extensive portfolio of solutions for all requirements and budgets.

Its Skyfold moveable wall offers a number of solutions over and above its most popular ‘Classic’ model. The Zenith system offers a thin path of travel, which is ideal for busy rooms with a lot of furniture as the wall can descend into a narrow gap.

The Zenith Premium offers the same thin path but with the added advantage of featuring closure panels to hide the ceiling pocket from view. This maintains the ceiling’s flushed and unobtrusive appearance and can also incorporate spotlights.

Skyfold Mirage is the acoustic glass version, which maximises the amount of light coming into the room as well as retaining an open plan feel.
