At Skyfold Inc., we think vertical: we are the acoustic leader in vertically folding retractable walls. Our walls are more than just space dividers: they are innovative, custom, electric and premium multipurpose space solutions that allow architects, interior designers, contractors and end-users to redefine how a space is used. The easy-to-use, self-retracting system and vertical motion of the operable wall give users the flexibility to quickly divide or expand spaces. When deployed, Skyfold becomes a two-sided, rigid wall and acoustic barrier with acoustic ratings of up to STC 60 (RW 59) and NRC/SAC of up to 0.65. When not in use, the Skyfold wall disappears into the ceiling for the user to maximize their floor space.
Our solutions are not just soundproofing partition walls used to reconfigure spaces; they are created to be multipurpose design pieces that live within a space. With a wide selection of finish options that can be mix-and-matched, your Skyfold wall can be customized to complement, and even enhance, your space’s design. Our standard white markerboard surface finish further transforms a partition wall into a projection screen and a writing surface that colleagues or students can use to brainstorm and that teachers can use for lecture notes.
With over 7000 walls installed worldwide, Skyfold is the premium choice for architects, contractors and interior designers.
To provide architects, interior designers and general contractors with innovative vertically folding retractable walls that unite acoustics, flexibility, design, and safety for their design plans and their clients.
We are innovators and leaders in the movable wall industry. Our team is dedicated to setting industry standards not only with the products we provide, but also in the way we work. At Skyfold, we strive for continuous improvement and to inspire collaboration at all levels.
Our ambition to be industry leaders expands beyond providing state-of-the-art flexible space division solutions; we are committed to offering quality customer support, service and design collaboration through our internal team of estimators, engineers, drafters, quality assessors, and administrators as well as through our exclusive international distribution network.
Skyfold Inc. is committed to promoting better and more sustainable buildings with the highest indoor environmental quality. Our commitment extends not only to the products we make, but also to our operations and manufacturing techniques used in our facilities. Since 2015, we have been a proud member of the United States Green Building Council (USGBC) and have designed products and solutions that may contribute to the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) program credits in six categories. The USGBC is committed to promoting buildings that are environmentally and socially responsible and that help to improve the quality of life for those who occupy them and the communities in which they are built. The responsible product selection in today’s market requires careful consideration of the impacts that product content has on people and planet throughout a product’s life cycle. As such, we are proud to say that Skyfold Inc. is also a member of mindful MATERIALS (mM) - transforming our industry one material at a time!
Skyfold acoustic vertically folding operable walls are constructed using up to 97% recycled materials, thereby offering tremendous sustainable advantages and opportunities to earn LEED points in several categories. In order to continue protecting our environment, it is essential that we all do our part by using recycled materials whenever possible. As with all the products at Skyfold Inc., we will continue to push the envelope on sustainable design.
As part of our ongoing sustainability initiatives, Skyfold Inc. is also in open dialogue to partner with suppliers for materials that are safe for the environment and our employees as per dormakaba Group's Material Compliance. Since we need to examine all materials delivered and manufactured, this review will take some time. In addition, Skyfold Inc. has successfully published Health-Product Related Declaration (HPD) reports and Environmental Product Declarartions (EPDs), which are verified and listed on the SCS Global Services EPD program, putting us among the first to have EPDs in the movable wall industry.
An Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) is a summary report of a product’s environmental performance based on Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), a scientific process which examines the environmental impacts associated with all stages of a product’s life, from raw material extraction, through processing, manufacture, distribution, use, repair/maintenance, to end of life (disposal and recycling). EPDs are prepared in accordance with international ISO standards and are useful to architects who need to calculate a building’s environmental footprint. Skyfold EPD reports are verified by SCS Global Services, a global leader in third-party quality, environmental and sustainability verification, certification, auditing, testing, and standards development.
When conducting business activities, compliance to local and internal company rules as well as respect of human rights and environmental regulations is of key importance to all dormakaba companies. This applies to both in-house processes as well as to relationships with other external points of contact, such as customers, authorities, partners and suppliers, as evidenced in dormakaba’s Supplier Code of Conduct.
