We can supply and install many different movable wall and sliding folding systems, however, to make your life easier, we have picked two most popular walls that have graced, many an educational establishment all across the UK.

Movable Walls

Movable Walls by Monowa

These are suspended from a head track and comprise of single panels which can be moved out of a stacking (parking) bay to form the desired acoustic room division.

They can be stacked (or parked) in a variety of ways depending on your room layout and space available.

Movable walls offer higher acoustic sound attenuation levels and have many different configurations depending on and to suit your requirements.

Sliding Folding Partitions

This system brings you a versatile solution where structural support from above is not available. The system bears its weight directly on to a low-profile floor track, screw fixed to the floor.

Panels are permanently hinged together allowing the system to fold backwards and forwards in a zig-zag fashion.

Stacking (parking) is either to one side (Single Wing), or to either side ) Bi-Parting

The lead panel acts as a pass door depending on configuration, in the case of the Bi-Parting systems the middle panel acts as a pass door.

Any of the stacking options can be either extended or made bespoke to suit your requirements.

Cons…

A structural soffit is essentially the structure the lives above the ceiling that we will need to fix into – click on image for a larger view.

The MonoWall Movable Wall Systems are of a higher specification than that of the MonoFold Sliding Folding systems, they also have more internal components.

Pros…

Click on the points below for extra information

A structural soffit is not required as the floor track is load bearing. The head track is simply screw-fixed to the opening providing a guide for the system to run along and to stop any lateral (side-ways) movement.

Due to the MonoFold being a less complicated system over the MonoWall it is less expensive.

These systems are perfect for smaller openings, say up to 5M in width and up to 2.4M high. However, they can of course be made larger to fit you requirements if there is no structural soffit.

Cons…

MonoFold - Floor Track

Although low profile and not a trip hazard, some see a floor track as unsightly running through a floor finish.

Due to the fact the panels are hinged together they system cannot be moved to a bespoke stacking area, as with the MonoWall systems – Click on image for a larger view.

Specification Sound Reduction Range: Up to Rw50dB.

Whilst the panel options are still comprehensive, they tend to consist of different vision panels and door options – Click on image above for larger view.
