Style Partitions has designed and installed a combination of moveable wall systems for a new teaching block and pavilion at Nottingham Trent University. Maximising the use of the new buildings was key to the design, and Style’s versatile partition system achieves this by allowing the teaching space to be quickly reconfigured as required.

In the teaching block, the fully automatic DORMA Moveo Comfortdrive system lets lecturers divide the teaching space with just the push of a button, removing the need to call upon facilities staff for every room layout change.

DORMA Variflex was chosen in the pavilion for its suitability for busy environments. The panel faces are manufactured separately to the frame so can be changed easily and cost effectively if damaged, or if the room design alters.

The panels have an acoustic rating of 55dB. Style also installed a magnetic whiteboard finish so that lecturers can write on the moveable walls during classes.
