Even in an open-plan setting there are needs for privacy the NZME fit-out was a case in point.

Trans-Space coordinated with the architects for the acoustic separation of the ground-floor iHeart lounge and visual separation of an adjacent meeting room, says Trans-Space managing director Tim Gordon.

"The acoustic separation was achieved by a solid, high-acoustic operable wall and the visual separation with a sliding and folding glass operable wall."

The frameless glass moveable wall was 3.8m high and 10m wide so individual panels were 3.8 x 1.2m making each moveable panel very large.

"We addressed this using through-fixed, 12mm toughened glass as opposed to the more common clamping ensuring the glass will never drop."

The solid moveable 4.1m-high wall required a Kvadrat Greenfield fabric finish and a minimum acoustic rating of STC 41. This was achieved by using the SpaceSeal 400 Series wall.

"The Kvadrat fabric raised challenges in fabricating and handling such large panels. However, the install went seamlessly and the finish was perfect."
