Scheduled servicing becoming as normal with moveable walls as it is with cars!
In the same way that a car needs routine servicing to give years of trouble-free motoring, a moveable wall needs a regular inspection and service to minimise potential downtime, preserve the wall’s acoustic integrity and help you comply with health and safety regulations.
That’s the advice of Sjors Kuijs, Style’s service and aftercare director, who says the sharp uptake in service contracts reflects an appreciation by customers that regular scheduled servicing will extend the life of a moveable wall, and preserve its acoustic integrity.
“We have a national service and aftercare team, operating from our 5 regional offices,” said Sjors. “This means there are Style technicians local to you wherever you are in the UK.
“Our service contracts include regular maintenance visits, during which our engineers will inspect, clean, lubricate and adjust all mechanisms and components in accordance with best practice. We can also replace any damaged or worn parts to avoid any recurring problems turning into serious issues.
“Over and above our service contracts, we also offer an emergency repair and breakdown service which includes repairing partitioning walls that Style didn’t originally install.
“Thanks to the professionalism of our team, we have clients whose walls have been operational for over 25 years, and we recently helped a school restore a 50 year old wall to full working order.
“For each new customer that enters into a service contract with us, we carry out a condition survey of the partition and provide a 5 year budget planner for any components that we feel could form a liability to the wall’s future reliability. This means our customers can budget ahead rather than have potentially high costs sprung on them out of the blue.”
Style is the exclusive UK partner to DORMA and Skyfold, but can assist with any make of manual, semi-automatic or fully automatic moveable wall.
