Automatic partitioning wall for University

Automatic partitioning wall for University

Style has installed a state-of-the-art fully automatic moveable wall at Manchester Metropolitan University, providing staff and students the chance to quickly divide an area that is home to both a busy computer laboratory and filming studio.

The DORMA Moveo Glass ComfortDrive system, is a double-glazed operable wall that combines outstanding 50dB acoustics with a feeling of space and light.

The computer laboratory sits next to a room used for filming and was originally separated by a semi-automatic moveable partition. However, being a well-used facility, vast numbers of different people were involved in opening and closing the dividing wall. Obviously, the chance of operator damage was considerable and it was decided that a fully automatic solution would be considerably more efficient.

Andy Gibson, Style’s director for the North, said:"Fully automatic moveable partitioning walls are growing fast in popularity. It means that with the push of a button you can open and close the wall with no manual handling or human intervention at all. As well as being far quicker and easier for the University staff to open and close, this minimises the chance of operator damage, and has health and safety advantages too.”
