Bildspec recently installed four operable walls for design and construct firm Palm Projects at Hipages’ Pitt St, Sydney office to enable a multi-use space to be turned into two smaller spaces whilst having acoustic separation from the adjacent rumpus area. Hipages is Australia’s largest online tradie marketplace, connecting Australians with trusted tradies to simplify home improvement.

These folding walls allow maximum flexibility of the office footprint and facilitate an easy switch between small and large format meeting rooms, or alternatively a full open town hall environment.

Three of these acoustic folding walls are Bildspec Konnect double glazed with an Rw46 rating – two having one panel finished in Autex Vertiface and the third with one panel in Autex Custom Etch. The fourth wall is an Rw49-rated Series 100R solid wall and is finished in Autex Vertiface on one side and vitreous enamel magnetic whiteboard panels on the other.

Operable walls are acoustic folding walls, which are perfect for situations when a wider entertainment or event space is needed. Dividing panels can be opened up to connect various spaces into a larger more collaborative environment whilst still providing acoustic separation and privacy from adjacent spaces.
