Moveable acoustic walls from Bildspec were installed at the new office of leading independent Australian mortgage brokerage, Shore Financial to help create flexible spaces.

Bildspec Operable Walls was recently chosen by the builder, Scope Projects to install their Konnect double glazed moveable acoustic wall panels at Shore Financial’s new office fitout in North Sydney.

Combining the elegance of glass with the reliability of a Bildspec operable wall, Konnect acoustic moving walls were installed as a glass office partition to separate side-by-side boardrooms in addition to separating the boardrooms from the adjacent common working area. These moveable acoustic wall panels allow for see-through connection of all three spaces with acoustic reduction properties.

Following the installation of the user-friendly glass acoustic moving walls, Shore Financial now has greater flexibility in the use of their office spaces with the ability to increase or reduce the size of their boardrooms at will, or combine them with the office area to create a larger multipurpose breakout space when required.

Apart from creating a flexible space, these acoustic glass office partitions greatly reduce the amount of external noise from passing through the wall and into each of the divided spaces. This reduction of sound is measured in Rw (Weighted Sound Reduction Index). Different combinations of top/bottom seals and board constructions are crucial in the wall’s ability to overcome sound transmission issues. These operable walls recently achieved a 48Rw acoustic rating when tested for their acoustic performance at CSIRO’s acoustic testing facilities in Clayton, Victoria.
