Always go for top-hung partition walls
All Pellco acoustic partition walls have the benefit of being top hung with no floor track or guide. Floor tracks are vulnerable to damage and distortion as furniture is moved around the room. This means panel rollers can become jammed and walls can even jump out of their tracks.
Our top-hung partitions are a robust alternative. Pellco’s Palace and Transpalace walls glide smoothly along ceiling-mounted ball-bearing trolleys. The tracks can even include corners in order to create shaped room divides or to allow for panels to be stacked out of the way when not in use.
The benefits of separate panels
All Pellco movable acoustic walls comprise separate, large panels. With over 40 years’ experience installing partition walls systems, we believe that separate panel systems have big advantages over continuous, hinged systems.
With continuous hinged partitions, as you pull the wall across the opening, it gathers weight and becomes increasingly difficult to pull. Over time, the forces on the panel hinges and the trolley fixings can lead to separation of panels and damage to the trolley fixings. Also the constant stress on the wall abutment attachment can lead to it becoming damaged or detached.
Pellco’s separate panel systems, on the other hand, offer long-term reliability and stability. Because the user need only pull one panel at a time, wear and tear is much less. Additionally, individual panels can be thicker and sturdier, providing greater sound insulation, durability and fire resistance.
