Servicing moveable walls in schools

The management of the UK’s education estate facilities has been more important never. Responding to this, partitioning expert Style has undertaken planned maintenance work, within a 3-year service agreement, in a cluster of Scottish schools, quickly rectifying small regions of wear and tear which could otherwise have resulted in larger repair costs in the long run.

Style’s in-house trained team of technicians operates is and nationwide authorised and fully qualified to service and keep maintaining, not merely all Dorma Skyfold and Hüppe moveable walls, for which we have been sole UK distributor, but virtually all other systems too also,

Throughout a routine service stop by at among the Scottish schools, Style’s technical team pointed out that the partitioning wall’s pass door had dropped slightly, putting strain on the operating mechanism and impacting acoustic integrity negatively. Even though wall was fully operational still, and the slight misalignment had opted unnoticed by school staff, it could have led to much larger certainly, and much more costly problems, if it turned out left unresolved.

Having spotted the presssing issue within a detailed audit, Style’s technicians could actually resolve it and efficiently whilst on site quickly, preventing further damage.

“Planned maintenance is really a crucial section of managing moveable wall assets,” said Angela McGowan, Style Scotland’s service and sales manager.

“A nominal investment in scheduled visits to handle safety and health, acoustic and operational checks can save a lot of money in repairs over time. In some full cases, moveable walls can last more than 25 years, if maintained properly.

“It’s because of this we have been seeing demand for service contracts grow dramatically from within the training sector which relies heavily on flexible space, in areas where social distancing measures could be required particularly.”

Satisfying PUWER safety and health obligations, a thorough service by among Style’s technicians includes the next: checking all seals are intact and fully operational; lubricating and cleaning track and fixings; alignment of panels and tracking system; and a full check of any electrical components including motor and key switches, push buttons, panel controls and contacts.
