Ruchill Kelvinside Parish Church is a lively church situated in the North West of Glasgow and a parish church in the Church of Scotland. As part of the national church, it has responsibility not only for its members but also people within the parish who do not belong to any church.

Working with architects, Corstorphine and Wright and contractor, Lochie Construction, Style was asked to create flexible space between the church hall and a meeting/kitchen area.

To maintain a light and open feel a glass folding wall was chosen, with a stylish black surround.

Easy to open and close, this manual folding wall enables the church to very quickly segregate off the kitchen and meeting area from the main church so that catering can be prepared or separate meetings can take place without disturbing events taking placing in the main hall.

David Louden, Style’s director for Scotland, said, “This is a very simple, yet highly effective 32dB acoustic folding wall which means the church can sub-divide their space at a moment’s notice.

“By including a pass door it also means that the folding wall can remain closed for longer periods of time – effectively creating an additional room within the church that can quickly be opened up and included in the open plan space.”

Stylefold is an easy to operate, flush acoustic folding wall which can either be hung from a ceiling track or supported by a low profile surface mounted floor track. Fitted with double PVC seals all round, these folding walls achieve and maintain a high level of acoustic integrity between adjacent rooms, with some folding walls achieving up to 50db tested as a complete unit to EN ISO 10140-2.

Stylefold folding walls are supplied as either a centrefold or endfold configuration to accommodate different parking requirements.
