Style has installed two semi-automatic DORMA Hüppe partitioning walls, significantly upgrading the prestigious Queen and Trafalgar conference and banqueting suites at the Blackpool Hilton hotel.
With beautiful views and easy access to local attractions, the Blackpool Hilton hotel is popular with holidaymakers, as well as offering a meeting venue for up to 800 people. The existing moveable wall system had been in place for 40 years and the weight of the panels was becoming a health and safety issue due to the physical effort required to move them into place.
Maintaining the original period features of the space, Style’s innovative solution utilises the existing track system whilst devising a customised stacking arrangement that simplifies moving the panels into place. Finished in traditional wood veneer that complements the décor, the moveable walls deliver an impressive 55dB acoustic integrity for excellent privacy between the divided areas.
The new partitioning walls are manually moved into place, whereupon DORMA Hüppe ComforTronic seals automatically expand to just the right pressure to maximise the acoustic integrity of the system.
Glynn Makin, facilities manager for the Hilton, said: "I can’t express how happy we are with the DORMA system. "And I cannot believe how light the panels are. Now, rather than taking an hour to reconfigure the room, it takes the conference and banqueting team less than 15 minutes. Everyone at Style was amazing, from the team in the office to those on site, and everybody understood precisely what we were looking to achieve and couldn’t do enough to help us.”
