The folding partitions are suspended from a variety of different overhead tracking systems and, once in place, have mechanical top and bottom pressure seals that extend to stabilize the panels and stop sound from travel around the folding partition wall.
Paired or Omni Directional Wall Panels: These are wall panel systems designed to create flat walls when set up. The wall can consist of single panels or paired (groups of two or three as shown in the slide). These are the most common type of folding walls sold throughout the world in hotels, convention centers, schools, religious facilities, hospitals and commercial office spaces.
Manual or Electric Train Panels: Some openings can be filled with a series of folding wall panels that are all continuously hinged together so when extended the panels create a wall. These can either be set up manually or electrically operated. Manual trains can often become too heavy to operate efficiently when designed into larger openings, since the operator must pull all of the weight of the panels across a room at the same time. As such, the better option is to provide electric trains that will automatically extend and retract the folding walls at the push of a button.
Tip-Tap can provide all of the above styles of partitions and many more styles.
