The use of Sonik Doors also enabled stringent acoustic performance requirements to be met.

Ingenious Flexible Space Design from Style

Style - Moveable Partition Specialists

Drawing on over 20 years of experience installing operable walls, Style was recently challenged to come up with a solution to divide a large meeting area, despite there being no suitable structure in the ceiling to utilise as a fixing point.
