In this article, Moving Designs Limited discuss how Movable Partitions in schools can promote flexible learning spaces and create an enhanced learning experience for the 21st Century.
The most common type of partition is the Acoustic Movable Wall. The operator lines up each panel adjacent to the other locking the seals into place. Acoustic insulation of up to 58dB noise reduction is achieved with a combination of acoustic infill’s and operable top and bottom seals. Individual panels can be constructed with either manual or semi-automatic retractable top and bottom seal. Panels are available curved or with inset pass doors and glazed cut outs
The Sliding Folding Partition utilises two hinged panels that are moved in pairs and straightened when in place. The system incorporates a series of flat panels (each up to 900mm wide) that are hinged together to give a flush appearance when closed. They are quick to operate and available in a range of acoustic ratings from 30dB – 49dB which is achieved with a combination of acoustic infills.
An important feature of flexible learning space is that it big enough to accommodate, and be easily adapted to, a vast range of learning activities.
From a holistic approach the environment is an important tool to increase the student experience. With Movable Partitions space can immediately be minimized to accommodate smaller groups. Alternatively, increasing the size means that the space can be occupied by more than one teacher, allowing for a collaborative learning environment.
And, furthermore, Glazed Movable Partitions would allow natural sunlight to flood in for an added sense of openness.
