Movable walls

When we live or work in an open space we often have the need to recover a private, discreet corner away from the rest also if only for a short time and not as a permanent solution. In this sense, movable walls offer an ideal option. Handy, flexible, adaptable to personal tastes, they perfectly integrate in any environment. Such particular walls are but vertical elements thought to divide and delineate the space. They can feature diverse technical characteristics and finishes. Depending on where they are positioned, it is important for movable walls to ensure certain characteristics, among which sound and thermal insulation.

Characteristics and materials of movable walls

If you are planning to improve the space organization of your home, or to renovate it and rethink the environments, movable walls make for a valid alternative to building a cement wall. Sliding walls enable to transform the space according to the needs without having to turn the house structure upside-down. Movable walls also help define the furnishing style, as they add in as a new element to the room, hence fine-tuning its character. Vertical, curved or linear panels, shading or transparent, designed in the most diverse materials and enriched with any kind of decoration, they are a fashionable alternative to traditional walls.
Renovation works can include knocking downs the walls that separate the internal space and hinder a fully use of the environment. However, for those who do not particularly fancy utterly open plan spaces and rather aim at an original solution to partition the space occasionally, wood movable walls are certainly a valid option to consider. Their installation requires only the fitting of a dedicated rail during renovation works, for the panels to slide. The latter come in a variety of typologies with diverse sizes and essences. Glass movable walls, on their hand, allow to delimit the environments while creating a continuous effect among them. Such an element is as easy to find in offices as in private dwelling. As a matter of fact, in the latter context a glass wall can be used in order to separate the living area from the garden while keeping continuity between the indoor and the outdoor. Maintenance is crucial after a glass wall is installed; it is indeed very important to wipe the glass properly in order to prevent the creation of halos.
Next to wood and glass, there are also fabric movable walls, very sophisticate and often customizable. Among the most used models, acoustic movable walls are very common especially in contract environments as they allow to insulate a space not only visually but especially sound-wise.

Sliding, folding and operable movable walls

Sliding movable walls separate the dining area from the rest of the kitchen especially in small apartments. Choosing the right wall is not just a matter of tastes and costs; it also depends on the room where it will be placed. Many sliding walls also serve as real pocket doors allowing to make the best out of the available space and to extend the living area, for instance. Folding movable walls can feature rails both on the ceiling and on the floor. The way that each panel composing the partition wall unfolds recalls that of a brochure where the pages go one over the other to allow reading. Pocket movable walls work similarly, but differently from folding doors can be made of narrower panels and no rail on the floor is required for installation. The wall is opened from one side only and the moving of a single panel affects all the others. The moving of the central or external elements allow each element to glide. Operable movable walls are a design solution that embodies all the described functionalities and allow those who chose this model to customize the sliding system. Due to its flexible use, each sheet can open completely or partially, as it is possible to chose also different sliding options depending on the wall size.
