Repton village hall was opened in September 2019 becoming the second hall on the site with a sprung wooden floor in the large main hall, a community cafe and a meeting room. 

The hall was built after many years of fundraising in the village, with a public works loan obtained by Repton Parish Council.

As part of a complete rebuild project, Style worked with A&S Enterprises to create flexible space in the main hall by installing a Stylefold folding wall. 

The operable wall separates the main hall from a storage room making it simple to gain access to storage facilities when tables, chairs and other equipment is needed, then partitioning it off when events and gatherings are taking place.

The simple manual, E130 fire rated folding wall divides the room with ease and includes a pass door to enable simplicity of access between the main hall and storage room when the wall is in place, with the spray paint finish complementing the village hall’s modern interior design.

“This is a great example of how a relatively straightforward folding wall can make life so much easier for local people using the village hall as an important part of their community,” said Mike Fine, Style’s director for the Midlands. 

“It means you can segregate off unsightly stacked tables, chairs, heaters, lights and other storage items, keeping them out of sight when the hall is in use. 

“It also means, for larger events, you can maximise revenue by opening up the storage space and using as it an extension to the room, offering greater capacity and floor space.”
