>Why choose our floating wall system?

Our modern floating wall system will outlast other conventional wall systems. The panels that make up our wall system do not experience the usual wear and tear as they are never handled during operation. The load generated by a Skyfold wall is static and requires less structural steel than a conventional floating wall system because the load does not shift to one end of the building when stored. The floating wall system requires no floor tracks, no wall storage pockets or closets, thereby eliminating the need for unsightly pocket doors. There are no visible hinges on a Skyfold floating wall system.

Safety features

Safety is paramount on the Skyfold floating wall system.

  • It is operated by two spring return key switches wired in series and operated simultaneously. Hand pressure must be maintained in order to operate the floating wall system. When hand pressure is removed, the floating wall system stops immediately in a quick and positive fashion without coasting.
  • As a normal part of the operation, it is possible to partially open (or close) the floating wall system, stop it and then reverse the operation.
  • When one of the keys is released, the floating wall system stops immediately, without coasting.
  • The gear motor that powers the entire floating wall system is a heavy-duty, sealed, industrial motor designed for hundreds of stops and starts an hour. It is rated for service several orders of magnitude more rigorous than the service it experiences on the Skyfold floating wall system.
  • Separate from the gear motor assembly is a closed loop hydraulic checking device powered by the line shaft itself. When the floating wall system is traveling downwards, the hydraulic checking device builds up a certain hydraulic pressure that is dependent on the floating wall system’s travel speed. In normal operation, this pressure is very low and this checking device offers no appreciable braking force on the floating wall system. If, at any time, the floating wall system speed is substantially greater than normal, this checking device offers sufficient braking force to lower the floating wall system to a speed no greater than 150% of normal operating speed
