DORMA operable wall creates flexible space for Wokingham school

DORMA operable wall creates flexible space for Wokingham school

Style have supplied their DORMA Hüppe Variflex operable wall for the main hall at Bohunt, a secondary school in Wokingham.

The Variflex incorporates panels and pass doors that can be as little as 976mm wide, as opposed to the more standard 1200mm width, allowing the wall to be more discreet.

Julian Sargent, Style’s group managing director said: “This is a great example of where we worked closely with both the contractor and architect to meet very specific requirements”

The main contractor, Dawnus Construction Holdings, had a specific requirement to have a slim stacking mechanism so the operable wall could fit in with the room’s structure.

Style worked with Dawnus Construction and architects, Re-Format LLP, to install a DORMA Hüppe Variflex operable wall to divide the hall on the ground floor of the building.

With an acoustic rating of 55dB Rw, the hall can be divided to allow one half to be used as a refectory whilst on the other side teachers can run activities uninterrupted.

Alternatively, when the wall is not in position it offers one open-plan area for assemblies and large events.

When not required, the wall is stored neatly into a small recess, helping maintain the minimalist aesthetics of the room. Further complementing the contemporary interior décor, Style recommend a classic white melamine finish for the wall.
