Movable Walls are crafted to provide a high degree of sound isolation between adjacent rooms. Since even small leaks will undermine the acoustical performance of the partitions, it is important to use “sound practices” every time that each wall is “set up.”
It’s a phenomenon as to why contractors and building owners specify floor to ceiling acoustic partitions yet leave an expansive void above the partition to save on initial construction costs. Even with the highest rated acoustic partition sound will leak over the top of partition freely because they are relying on the ceiling alone to block the transfer of sound.
James Luker (MCIOB, IMaPS, C.Build E MCABE, CertFDI), one of the directors of Moving Designs Ltd, has been actively involved in the Movable Wall industry for some 15 years and brings with him his knowledge, expertise and inspired creativity of this very unique industry, ready to solve our clients’ needs and “Unlock their vision”
Movable Walls are an ideal solution to utilise available space within any religious building including Churches, Synagogues, Mosques, Islamic Centres and other types of worship space.
Manufacturers of Movable Walls market their products based on data that is derived from test done in a controlled environment, normally in an Acoustic Testing Laboratory. The sound insulation values of lab tested walls are generally given as Rw Db ratings. These tests can be used as a comparison but the actual field rating acoustics of the Movable Wall will probably be worse, this is defined as the DnTw Db
Movable walls are an effective solution for space management but who says Movable Walls are only used for dividing space. The next generation of Movable Walls lends itself to an array of possibilities, the constraints are only limited by our imagination.
Acoustic partitions allow schools, hotels, meeting rooms and other facilities to divide and expand rooms to meet their ever changing requirements. Specifying them into the building design not only allows the owner to provide privacy, but also maximises a facility’s use by enabling the hosting of simultaneous events. Choosing an Acoustic Partition isn’t always an easy task. So how do you choose the correct partition for your facility?
Efficiency in the workplace isn’t about how much space you have its about using space to create a seamless workflow for people, being able to manipulate your surroundings. Movable partitions allow multiple activities to happen in close proximity to one another, accommodating different settings that support different activities. So how will the landscape change to accommodate the next generation of work-space?
