Glass Operable Wall

Glass operable walls have excellent acoustic properties. They also have the advantage of connecting spaces visually and allowing light to flow into the room or bringing the outdoors inside.

Our DG100 series is a double glazed operable wall that provides excellent acoustic properties and functionality to compliment your current interior design. Panels are aluminium framed, consisting of laminated glass with PVC extruded seals internally and externally.

Panels are 100mm thick and can be manufactured to a maximum size of 1200mm wide by 3000mm high. The panels incorporate an 80mm trim around the perimeter of the frames with dual 20mm interlocking stiles. These stiles also include three vertical rubber bulb seals and two vertical PVC seals to provide a complete airtight seal.

Side stacking is preferred with the DG100 as it enables ease of operation for moving panels.

Like our Operable Wall system, when your operable wall is retracted, there are several options for storing your panels. A center stack is the most simple and basic stacking option available. A side stack allows you to store the panels slightly off to the side of the main track, which would keep the panels from protruding into a hallway, for example. Lastly, a remote stacking option allows you to store the panels wherever you wish, such as a cupboard or stacking bay, which both protects the panels while also keeping them out of view. 

The Unifold DG100 Operable Wall has an acoustic rating of Rw49.

Horizontal seals:
The standard seal option for the DG100 operable wall is the three fingered rubber sweep seal. This seal is designed to make contact with the track and floor creating an acoustic barrier above and below the panels.

Glazing seals:
Panels consist of captive wedge PVC rubber extruded seals enclosing glass panes and providing an airtight seal.

A jamb hung full height pass door is used to acoustically close the DG100 Operable Wall. This is positioned as the last panel and is hinged off a fixed jamb. Both ends of the wall have aluminium jambs and a concealed foot bolt is incorporated in the panel adjacent to the pass door.

 

 

The first option is an expanding panel with rubber bulb seals. This is the standard closure when no pass door is required and incorporates vertical rubber seals at both ends of the wall to acoustically seal the opening. In the case of requiring a higher Rw rating, it is preferred this panel sits inside a cupboard. 

 

 

The second option is a jamb hung full height pass door. This is positioned as the last panel and is hinged off a fixed jamb. Both ends of the wall have aluminium jambs and a concealed foot bolt is incorporated in the panel adjacent to the pass door. This is the preferred option when requiring a higher Rw rating as it eliminates potential acoustic weak points.

Full Self guiding four wheel carriers.

All Unifold operable walls are supplied standard with nylon tyred ball bearing four wheel carriers. Depending on the desired stacking, these carriers have the capability to guide themselves into the stacking bays for ease of operation.

For custom stacking options, heavy duty puck carriers and counter rotating track will be required.
