Another challenge, but this time the short lead time was not the main problem. How to build a number of curved top hung single glazed movable glass partition walls to the front of training room pods with a soffit approximately 6 metres above the ceiling level. The client’s brief was a clean finish with no visible structure above the walls so a steel support structure had to be designed.
As Chasewater was the most trusted supplier of Movable Walls to this client for over 10 years we were called in to assist with the project at an early stage. The steelwork had to be completely independent yet also support the weight of the movable walls with a twin point or offset stack. A ladder frame section was agreed upon. The radius had to be calculated and the exact position of the track had to be marked out on the floor by our technical team so that the steelwork manufacturers could design their beams to be positioned exactly above our tracks. There are not many movable wall companies that could complete this without having to call in the panel manufacturers. The facetted tracks were manufactured and fitted into place with the minimum of fuss. And then the panels had to be manufactured. The openings had to be measured to the finest tolerances as there are no expanding sections with this system and the panels met the walls at sum unusual angles. All was installed, again with the minimum of fuss. This was one of the most difficult projects Chasewater have been challenged with and we are very proud of the results, as can be seen in the pictures
Chasewater work nation wide and our walls can be found as far north as the Shell 'Gannet' oil rig in the north sea and as far south as Guernsey.
