A school in Falkirk relies on a substantial 6.2 metres high moveable wall to divide the main hall into two separate areas at different times of the day. Unfortunately, recent damage to the roller housing had caused one of the panels to become stuck, disrupting the day-to-day implementation of the school timetable.
A call to the Scottish service team at nationwide partitioning experts, Style, quickly had moveable wall technicians on site who were able to safely lower the panel, remove and repair the damaged part before reconstructing the wall at minimal cost.
Style’s fully employed team of specialist engineers is highly trained and able to offer service and repair of almost any moveable wall system.
“At over 6 metres high, this was a very sizeable moveable wall which is why it was so important to have trained and accredited moveable wall technicians carrying out the repair,” said Angela McGowan, sales and service manager at Style Scotland.
“Our in-house team of engineers has comprehensive health and safety training, including CSCS, PASMA, asbestos awareness, manual handling and risk assessments.”
The Style team at the Falkirk school first used a chain hoist to carefully drop the stuck panel to the ground.
They then opened-up the access to the roller housing, removed the damaged part and sent it to a metal specialist to be straightened, saving money by not having to order new parts or, worse still, replace a whole section of the moveable wall.
The panel was then reconstructed, the roller changed, and the panel reinstated to the track, enabling the moveable wall to operate smoothly once again.
“Our technicians will always carry out a thorough assessment when determining the best approach to repairing a damaged moveable wall. On this occasion, it was decided that the bent part could be repaired rather than replaced saving the school money.”
Style is the UK’s leading moveable, partitioning and folding wall specialist offering a complete solution from new installations through to service, upgrades and repair.
