East Sussex day nursery
divides space with folding wall
Bloomsbury Street Day Nursery in Brighton is designed to encourage children to learn, play and explore at their own pace. Each day is filled with activities to promote their engagement and development, from yoga to rugby, every child will find something that sparks their curiosity.
Working with architects, Broe & Co LLP, Style was specified to create a flexible learning and play environment by installing a folding wall on the ground floor.
The ideal solution was a Stylefold acoustic glass folding wall with a 44dB Rw rating that enables nursery staff to separate the room into two, whilst ensuring that activities either side of the wall can take place undisturbed.
By choosing a glazed folding wall, staff retain full visibility of the children at all times and the room continues to enjoy a light, airy and open feel.
This manually operated folding wall is light and simple to open and close, which means staff can change the room configuration to suit daily activities, and the pass door at the end means the wall can remain in place for longer periods if desired without hindering access between rooms.
“For schools, day centres, and community halls the Stylefold folding wall is a really effective solution,” said Michael Porter, Style’s group sales director.
“It can be opened and closed in seconds, the acoustics are superb – which means you can enjoy privacy either side, and this modestly priced folding wall solution is ideal when budgets are tight.
“As well as being an excellent way of making your room space flexible, a folding wall is also a great option for sectioning off parts of rooms to cut down on heating and lighting costs, rather than use up unnecessary energy in large open plan areas – something that is at the top of most people’s priorities at the moment.”
As well as the glazed option, the Stylefold folding wall is also available in a variety of finishes, including painted, polished wood veneer or a wide range of standard or high-pressure laminates.
It can also be installed with writeable white board panels, which is ideal in a teaching environment.
