Skyfold Classic Operable Walls Design Tips

Since Skyfold Classic Operable Walls are modular systems, the information below provides:

a) A quick reference when determining space requirements for your Skyfold Classic needs.

b) The parameters that will enable you to utilize Skyfold Classic Operable Walls in the most cost-effective way.

Example 1:

An 8’- 1” (2465 mm) finished ceiling height is required. If the customer can drop to a height of 8’- 0” (2440 mm), a row of panels is eliminated, thus reducing the cost of the wall.

The minimum wall length that can be manufactured without modifying Skyfold Classic 51, Skyfold Classic 55, Classic 60 or Classic NRC is 11’-3" (3430 mm). There are no restrictions on maximum wall length.

Below are the panel length restrictions for our ceiling heights:

Finished Maximum Panel Length
Ceiling Height Classic 51™ Classic 55™ Classic 60™ Classic NRC™
18'-0" (5485 mm) 12' (3655 mm) 12' (3655 mm) 10' - 12'
(3050mm - 3655 mm)
12' (3655 mm)
20'-0" (6095 mm) 12' (3655 mm) 12' (3655 mm) 10' (3050 mm) 12' (3655 mm)
22'-0" (6705 mm) 12' (3655 mm) 12' (3655 mm) 8' (2440 mm) 12' (3655 mm)
24'-2" (7365 mm) 12' (3655 mm) 10' (3050 mm) 8' (2440 mm) 10' (3050 mm)
26'-0" (7925 mm) 10' (3050 mm) 10' (3050 mm) 8' (2440 mm) 10' (3050 mm)
28'-2" (8585 mm) 10' (3050 mm) 8' (2440 mm) 8' (2440 mm) 8' (2440 mm)
30'-0" (9145 mm) 10' (3050 mm) 8' (2440 mm) N/A 8' (2440 mm)
34'-2" (9800 mm) 8' (2440 mm) 8' (2440 mm) N/A 8' (2440 mm)
36'-0" (11000 mm) 8' (2440 mm) 7' (2135 mm) N/A 7' (2135 mm)

It is more economical for the customer if the wall lengths stay within the above noted increments, without going over.

Example 2: (for walls based on the above height restrictions)

24’ (7315 mm) long wall instead of 25’ (7620 mm) = 2 panels on the length instead of 3.

60’ (18,290 mm) long wall instead of 61’ (18,595 mm) = 5 panels on the length instead of 6.

Skyfold Classic 60 can accommodate a maximum 28’-2” (8585 mm) ceiling height.

All other Skyfold Classic Operable Walls can accommodate a maximum 36’-0” (11000 mm) ceiling height.

Incorporating the above guidelines will result in substantial savings for the customer.

Two types of systems available

Standard Drive System:

For ease of design, installation, and maintenance, the motor assembly mounts directly above the wall.

Micro Drive System:

When space is an issue, this system may be best suited for your needs. By using larger panels, a maximum ceiling height of 9’-0” (2740mm) can be achieved with only 4 panels on the height of the wall. The motor assembly mounts directly above the wall.

The following represent the parameters for this system:

  • Minimum wall length: 11’-10” (3605 mm)
  • Maximum wall length: 36’-0” (10,975 mm)
  • Maximum ceiling height: 9’-0” (2740 mm)
