Moveable walls give Rangers FC
a flexible events space
Edmiston House is a state-of-the-art event facility that hosts the Rangers Football Club museum, a new two-storey Rangers FC store and a fantastic space for concerts, events and a fanzone on matchdays.
A truly world-class facility, Edmiston House is not just for Rangers but for the local community and the city of Glasgow, with an event space that can host seminars, conferences, gigs, exhibitions and awards’ ceremonies.
Working with architect, Keppie Design, and contractor, Sharkey, Style was specified to create flexible space in the function room and this was achieved using two Dorma Huppe Variflex moveable walls to create a T-shape. This enables the room to be divided into two individual rooms, as and when required, each with separate access.
Each wall incorporates a double pass door with push bar panic hardware to meet regulations in line with the fire evacuation plan. In addition to this, one of the walls also has a single pass door, again with push bar panic hardware, and allows separate access to each room from the external corridor made by the wall configuration.
Both walls offer a superb 57dB acoustic rating which enables concurrent events to take place undisturbed.
“This is a great example of where moveable walls can be combined to create a really flexible room configuration,” said David Louden, Style’s director for Scotland.
“As the room can often host lively events, the acoustic rating is also a huge benefit as it means two events can be hosted without interfering with one another.
“The classic Pearl Grey III finish on these moveable walls also works well, offering not only an adaptable space but a stylish one too.”
