Commercial Installation: Sigma Folding Partition for a Norfolk School

Case Studies, Folding Partitions

No customer is too big or too small for our intrepid installation engineers at Cook’s Blinds and Shutters. Whether we are working on a small residential property or as part of a team on a big commercial refurbishment, we offer the same quality service that has kept us trading for over 50 years! A leading local contractor called us in to help out on a big school contract they had picked up. Here’s the folding partition concertina wall we installed in an assembly hall.

A folding partition installed at a school

This is a concertina wall from our Acoustic range. The wall is top-hung with no floor track. The doors concertina back from a central partition and stack neatly on either side of the wide opening. The concertina wall has a wipe-clean laminate finish, making it a practical choice for a school.

Concertina walls are a great way to divide up a space. They are popular in schools in two main situations:

  • Where a large space such as a drama studio, sports hall or assembly room sometimes needs to be divided up so that students can work on different projects without disturbing each other.
  • Where a large store cupboard contains bulky items such as gym benches, crash mats and stage flats that could not be manoeuvred out through a conventional door.

There are many commercial operations that benefit from concertina walls and folding partitions for similar reasons. Wherever it is useful sometimes to have a larger space and sometimes a smaller space, partitions are the pragmatic solution. With a concertina wall you can have the best of both worlds: one big room or two smaller ones.

We have the knowledge and experience to take on work for big public sector operations. We have installed blinds, shutters, doors and concertina walls in schools, universities and hospitals and are always ready to give a reasonable quote no matter the size of the job.
