Flexible space is vital in the education sector


Schools, colleges and universities looking to maximise the use of their rooms should look at the wide range of moveable partitioning wall systems on offer, their versatility and acoustics.

According to Mike Fine, Style Partitions’ director for the Midlands, schools, colleges and universities are under huge pressure to use their rooms for a wide multitude of activities, with the use of certain rooms changing frequently every day.

“The latest moveable wall systems offer acoustics that border on complete soundproofing, are fully automated in their operation, can cater for stepped lecture theatres and can be installed with writeable white board finishes for use during lessons,” said Mike.

“Being able to divide a large room into smaller rooms, or use it as one large open plan area, means the space can be adapted to suit the activity and reconfigured in minutes. Better still, by only using the space you require also saves on heating and lighting.

“As a result, we are finding that many schools, colleges and universities are choosing to invest part of their annual budgets in creating flexible space because this is far better than adding new temporary buildings or creating extensions.”

Style is the UK market leader in moveable partitioning wall systems, and the exclusive UK partner to DORMA, Skyfold and SWG. It means the company has an extensive portfolio of wall systems to match any budget or requirement.

“The education sector has seen unprecedented growth in recent years as schools recognise the benefits of using space as flexibly as they can,” added Mike, “and we have many examples of installations in the education sector on our web site.”
