Despite a raft of restrictions such as gathering limitations the government wants to get the economy going again. As reopening schools and workplaces call for new safety measures, acoustic partitions are an effective way to minimise space to accommodate smaller groups. Whilst maintaining regulations and restricting the number of people who have access to a given space at any one time.
When specifying an acoustic partition determining the dB rating is a key consideration for the soundproofing the product needs to achieve.
Movable Partitions in schools promote flexible learning spaces in the classrooms and beyond, creating an enhanced learning experience for the 21st Century.An important feature of flexible learning space is that it is of sufficient size to accommodate a range of different learning activities and can be easily configured or adapted to suit the activities taking place.

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.
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
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?
