Do you offer Operable Walls?

Yes, we offer operable walls that provide versatile and space efficient solutions for your workspace.

Having enough versatile space is key to the success of commercial premises. Operable walls provide the simple solution to those situations where even more flexibility and variation in room layout and size are required within the workspace.

Operable walls allow you to sub divide a large room or floor space such as a board room or classroom so you can create extra meeting rooms or hot desking spaces as and when required.

Operable walls generally consist of either a concertina or ‘slide and stack’ panel system that you can quickly open and shut as and when you need to. Opening and closing the operable walls needn’t be a laborious task, it is possible to fit motors to some of the wall layouts so they can be operated at the touch of a button.  This enables all your employees, whatever their physical ability to operate the walls.

Your operable walls needn’t be dull either – you can have photos, landscapes or branding added to the walls to create personality in the rooms when the walls are closed.

There are infinite alternatives of fire resistance, finish, acoustic rating and track layout on offer so no matter what your requirement we can find an operable wall solution that fits your needs.

If you have an office space or layout problem and would like our expert advice then please don’t hesitate to contact us.
