Series 220 - Straight Sliding Partition

Commercial buildings: offices, schools and universities, hotels, leisure facilities, churches, community centres. Domestic buildings: flats, apartment blocks, houses The 220 Series is a simple push/pull sliding panel system, which has been designed to replace the traditional solid core door systems that tend to warp over time and become difficult to move. The system is manufactured with a triple laminated frame to provide a twist resistant structure and is fitted with acoustic infill materials and all the necessary rubber gaskets and sweep strips required to provide a quality acoustic block between rooms. To form larger openings the panels (max. 1200mm) are joined together onsite by way of biscuit joints and steel plates (max 3 panels). The system can either be top hung or floor supported with the option on the top hung system to have the floor guide rail recessed into the underside of the panel and a pin located in the floor to act as a guide.

The partition can be supplied as a single wing stacking at one end only or as a bi-parting configuration.

case study

The Sage, Gateshead

AIS Gold Award Winner Brockhouse were excited to rise to the challenge of designing, manufacturing and installing a movable wall system that Arup Acoustics stated as ‘one of the most advanced movable walls ever to be installed in the UK’. The partition is positioned on the stage to form a backdrop, however there were a number of obstacles in the design that fell outside of the normal boundaries of a movable acoustic wall system. To ensure that the aesthetic appeal was not compromised at the expense of acoustic performance we employed a unique reversible finish of soft hessian sound absorption board with a veneered hardwood finish to the other side. Our Research & Development Unit designed a one off edge profile using a ball and socket joint which not only allowed the panels to be reversed but also complimented some twenty three acute angles within the headtrack to enable the wall to form a semi-circle. The next requirement of the client was an ability to control airflow on the stage, specially designed louvre shutters in each panel meant that the movement of air was easily controlled and adjusted. In summary Brockhouse have achieved what the client asked for, a reversible angled movable wall that could either absorb or deflect sound and be moved into and out of position with a minimum of time and effort. A project that could only have been fulfilled by this product.
