King’s Road Primary School in Dunfermline houses 19 classrooms, a nursery, 3 general purpose rooms, an assembly/dining hall/gymnasium and office accommodation. The building is single storey, features a large, enclosed courtyard and is fully accessible to wheelchairs.

Moveable wall expert Style was called upon to divide the sports hall with an affordable, yet highly effective, solution. In response, Style recommended their Multiroll curtain partitioning system. 

Taking up zero floor space, the Multiroll is installed into the ceiling cavity, either mounted in the beam area of the roof or invisibly fitted between a suspended ceiling. Operated at the press of a button, the fabric-lined divide unfurls from above, lowering to create a safe separation for large, open spaces such as gyms and sports halls.

If required, a Multiroll can be fitted with a sound-absorbing, non-woven fabric to provide enhanced noise insulation, whilst user welfare is assured with each system coming with German TÜV-tested safety as standard. Available in a multitude of colours, the Multiroll enhances any interior décor.

“King’s Road school originally had a sliding moveable wall in the sports hall,” explains Angela McGowan, sales director at Style Scotland, “but it was quite an old system and it had become difficult to move the panels in and out of the parking bay.

“Because of the height and weight of the panels, and the existing structural support, it was just not feasible to install a modern sliding wall system, but the Multiroll offered the perfect solution, requiring only support along the linear length, which was available.

“Maximising use of the space, the new Multiroll allows staff at the King’s Road school to quickly create two areas where different classes can gather to enjoy separate activities.” 

Style is the UK’s leading supplier of moveable wall systems, offering technologically advanced solutions for almost any location, including horizontal sliding and folding partitions, the vertical-rising Skyfold, as well as the Multiroll.
