New ground-breaking moveable wall arrives in the UK


A revolutionary new moveable partitioning wall has been launched taking acoustic integrity to a new level.

Dorma Variflex ML, which is available exclusively from Style Partitions in the UK, boasts improved sound insulation up to Rw 58dB, but with a reduced wall thickness of just 88mm.

“Most people would assume that to achieve better sound insulation you have to make a wall thicker,” said Julian Sargent, Style’s group managing director, “however Dorma have very cleverly achieved the direct opposite with this latest innovation.

“When it comes to moveable partitioning wall operation and aesthetics, the thinner the better as this offers numerous advantages in terms of how efficiently and discreetly it can be parked when not in use, the ease by which it can be moved, the structural advantages of its low weight and not using any more room space than necessary.

“What Dorma has achieved by improving the acoustics on a thinner wall is quite spectacular and sets the bar at a completely new level in room division systems.

“To put it in context, 58dB means meetings or events can take place undisturbed either side and this very thin wall is so easy to manoeuvre you can divide a room into 2 with incredible speed and ease.”

The new ML system comes with all of the hallmarks of Dorma’s hugely popular Variflex offering. The panel faces are manufactured separately to the frame, which means they are easy to change if one is damaged or scuffed, or if the interior design of a room changes later on.

The Variflex ML system provides a wide choice of elements and stacking/parking arrangements, is flexible even in the case of complicated room proportions where sloping ceilings or circular spaces have to be accommodated, and it comes in unlimited finishes which means it can perfectly match your interior design.
