The natural warmth and ambiance of wood veneer folding partitions
makes them especially suited to prestige offices, clubs and community
centres, and doctors' surgeries.
There are three types of timber partition
available - the 'Original', the 'Crystal' and the 'Acoustic Special'.
All folding partitions have a core of solid
fibre board covered in a choice of twelve wood veneers including oak,
beech and ash. The 'Original' partition has an attractive all-over
wood veneer; the 'Crystal' has translucent or frosted acrylic panels
set into the partition; and the 'Acoustic Special' incorporates a
layer of sound insulating material to achieve a rating of Rw33dB.
The range of wood finished partitions has been successfully used in a
range of interiors around the UK and recent examples illustrate their
popularity for particular applications.
In the health sector the wood folding
partitions have been used to good effect to provide temporary division
between various departments. This has been the case at several
hospitals including the York Health Services NHS Trust and The Medical
Centre in West London, where oak and beech veneer finishes have been
specified. Others have also chosen the glazed Crystal and Acoustic
The wood partitions also have a following
amongst golf and country clubs. For instance, on Anglesey at the Bull
Bay Golf Club, and in Swindon at the Wrag Barn Golf and Country Club.
The folding partitions have been used to separate the restaurant from
the bar area, yet when folded back, providing a completely open
function room for other purposes. Here teak and American white oak
finishes have been used respectively.
Wood finish partitions find favour too with
boutique shopping facilities. At St David's Hall theatre and a
conference hall in Cardiff, (pictured here) the Crystal folding
partitions in an ash finish provide a warm and attractive means of
opening and closing off a gift shop adjacent to the main foyer. This
wood partition matches the wood flooring, stacks back compactly and
allows visitors to see into the shop when closed.
