Style has provided a DORMA Variflex 100 SE moveable wall to sub-divide a multi-purpose school hall at the new Clyde campus. Style was required to address potential health and safety risks associated with manoeuvring moveable wall panels that would need to be over seven metres high and weighing in excess of half a metric tonne.
Style demonstrated their commitment to the Construction (Design & Management) Regulations 2015 and recommended combining a DORMA Variflex 100 SE moveable wall, which can be safely assembled on site, with the new DORMA programmable I-track. Removing 90-degree corners, a key point of impact with such tall panels, the I-track consists of switches and curves which uses the kinetic energy from the panel itself to assist in moving it into and out of its parking pocket.
Style Scotland, regional arm of UK partitioning experts Style, has achieved phenomenal growth since its incorporation ten years ago. In that time, over 1300 operable walls have been installed with a sales value of over £10m. Last month alone, Style Scotland secured business to the value of £700K - a record figure that demonstrates just how far the business has grown.
David Louden, Style’s director for Scotland, said:"The Clyde campus project demanded our highest level of expertise. CDM responsibilities dictated that the system specified could be installed, operated and maintained safely for many years to come.”
