Client: Auction House
Type of works: supply and installation of the Monoplan movable wall.
The recently completed installation of a floor-supported Monoplan movable wall at the Auction House Banqueting and Conference venue in Luton has proved to be a valuable asset to the client, allowing them to acoustically divide their main suite and host simultaneous events when required.
During an initial survey it was established that the roof structure of the building could not provide sufficient support for the Monoplan system to be top hung. Once it was established that installation of additional steelwork was expensive and impractical, it was decided to fix the head-track to plywood patresses located above the plasterboard ceiling. The lightweight metal framing to the ceiling provided adequate lateral-restraint at the head. The load bearing floor track was fixed to the concrete deck and raised sufficiently to finish flush with the top of the carpet.
When a single large floor area is required the wall panels are parked away in a far corner of the function suite.
