Skyfold Mirage

Technical Center for Mirage

Here, in the technical center, you will find all the technical details of the Mirage glass operable walls. This includes the acoustic seals, back-up procedure, the walls adjacent to columns, how the motors are mounted, how multiple walls are driven by one motor, how much space is required to allow it’s path of travel to be unobstructed, and downloadable schematics and REVIT files.

Acoustic Seals

This page describes how the acoustic seals around the wall operate in insuring that as little sound is transmitted thorough the partition as possible.

Back-Up Operating Procedure

Skyfold’s retractable walls are normally operated by two people each pushing a button keeping the operation as simple as possible. However, in the unlikely event of a failure (for example a power failure), the wall can be manually operated by following the instructions on this page.

Column Detail

This page in the technical center shows how the Skyfold folding wall is aligned to various column configurations.

Mounting and Motor Details

This section shows how the motor is mounted into the ceiling above the partition using various techniques of attachment to the building’s steel structure.

Multiple walls off one motor

More than one glass movable partition can be opened and closed from one motor. This page shows examples of how this is achieved.

Obstructions in Plenum Space

This section illustrates how to work around obstructions that can be found in the ceiling when installing a Skyfold retractable wall.

Path of travel

Due to the way the glass operable wall folds as it is opening and closing, there must be a clear, unobstructed path. This page illustrates the path the Mirage glass wall takes as it deployed.

Downloadable Drawings

This section of the technical center is where you can download various drawings, schematics and REVIT files.
