The new Hall 2 is located in the exhibition centre of Bordeaux in the north of the city and will host exhibitions, fairs and congresses.
Our authorized distributor Eole in France was chosen as a partner for the mobile partition systems. Two walls with a height of 9m were to be installed for flexible hall design. Both walls consist of 104 partition wall elements with a total length of 126 meters. All panels were designed and produced in Dessau and the project planning and installation on site was taken over by our partner Eole. What a spectacular result!
Reflective Blinds can be used in almost any window and have been tested by the CSIRO Division of Building, Construction and Engineering, under AS/NZS 3837:1998 and have been classified Group 1, in accordance with Specification A2.4 of the Building Code of Australia. They have an average specific extinction area significantly less than the required 250 m²/kgfor all Reflective Blind films currently on range.
Refer to Specification C1.10a section 3(c) of the Building Code of Australia
Being rated for inclusion in Group 1 means that they are suitable for use in all areas of the following classes of buildings both sprinklered and unsprinklered:
Class 2 & 3: Sole occupancy units.
Class 3 or 9a: Accommodation for the aged, people with disabilities, children & health care.
Class 5: Buildings, open plan offices with a minimum floor dimension/floor to ceiling height ratio > 5.
Class 6: Buildings, shops or other with a minimum floor dimension/floor to ceiling height ratio > 5.
Class 7, 8 or 9b: Schools & classrooms.
Class 9b: Other than schools: theatres and halls, etc, auditoriums.
Class 9c: Aged care buildings, resident use areas.
Sliding solutions in buildings create free space for appropriate ideas
Sliding solutions for use in buildings allow new flexibility in the floor plan.
Sliding solutions in buildings ensure that areas can be spaciously and flexibly designed and furnished. Buildings occupants want as much free space and openness as possible – in both the private and corporate settings. New room concepts are made possible thanks to sliding solutions. Layouts in existing buildings or apartments can be significantly optimized by using sliding solutions which, in turn, can significantly increase the value of existing properties.
Rooms become flexibly usable:
- Multifaceted solutions for sliding doors and sliding walls
- Flexibility in design and use of areas
- Multi-functional use of walls and passages
No fitting moves sliding doors as masterfully as the Hawa Junior
Its quality running gear consisting of top quality components makes it glide along the running tracks with unparalleled quietness. The floor guide with zero clearance keeps doors weighing up to 250 kg on course, the track buffer which is adapted to the door weight stops them reliably, and the soft and self closing system (up to 120 kg (264 lbs.)) pulls them gently to the end position. It’s also especially effective in wall pockets. The Hawa Junior Pocket does away with all the typical obstacles that fixed wall pockets posed in the past.
Designed for existing concrete, formulated to provide the installer the most cost effective method to eliminate the risks and problems associated with sub floor moisture problems.

Val Thorens, located in the French Alps, is the highest ski resort in Europe. Hotel Altapura, completed in 2011 compliments the mountain scenery while adhering to the local style. The architects of Studio Arch refined the ‘building blocks’ of architecture characteristic to this region with staggered facades, adapting it to today’s standards. The result is a striking building with all the modern conveniences, including indoor climate control. Three curtain walls give the facade a harmonic, playful appearance. They are constructed with Reynaers CW 60 Solar system, an integrated photovoltaic curtain wall system that produces energy through the conversion of sunlight – and even artificial light – into electricity. This system features fixing and facing strips specially designed to maximize light entry and minimize shadows on the PV panels. The facades are made of glass and integrated solar panels and reflect the beautiful countryside of Val Thorens. In combination with the luxurious interior, the result is a unique hotel with great appeal that will serve the region well.
The stately villa located in a park on the outskirts of the German town of Saarlouis can look back on an eventful history: in around 1900 it was used to house imperial non-commissioned officers, various courts made use of the building between 1919 and 2006, after which it stood abandoned for many years. Then, in the fall of 2015, it became a part of a stylish hotel complex. The architects from CBAG studio have cleverly distributed utilization over three buildings to conserve the structural fabric and the surrounding park: the gatehouse adjacent to the villa accommodates a bistro. The reception, five suites and rooms for events are located in the main building. And the new building that docks on to the villa in the north has 33 hotel rooms.
The outside appearance of the new three-story wing with its bronze-coloured outer skin in anodized aluminium is intentionally reserved. The room-high glazing draws the gaze from the rooms to the green park in the east. The west facade of the building towards the busy road is clad in a curtain of finely perforated aluminium as protection from the noise and sunlight which appears closed off at first glance. But the introverted impression is deceptive: the facade consists of room-high folding sliding shutters equipped with Hawa Frontego 30 matic hardware. Guests can open and close the shutters at the touch of a button. In doing so, they determine their privacy and view and also create a new facade appearance every time.
The Radisson Blu London Stansted Airport hotel features 500 rooms for business and leisure travelers and offers a large conference center, hosting up to 600 delegates. Hotel features rooms for business and leisure travelers and offers a large conference center. In 2018 the hotel decided to enhance their guests experience with refurbishments to different areas of the hotel. Hufcor was specified to replace older fatigued folding walls and an existing fixed wall in the conference area with three new Hufcor Type 100, 54dB movable walls to create a larger flexible more functional space. A mix of white and grey colors were chosen to complement the new interior design.
The primary challenge was to reduce onsite installation time to a minimum so the two replacement walls were installed first, maintaining the usability of the function suite and the new front wall was installed a few weeks later in a period of three days for both tracks and panels, whilst coordinating with the structural steel installers. The result is one of the largest modern conference facilities in Essex.
Typically, hotels and restaurants have an abundance of windows so it’s not uncommon for establishments to find themselves battling glare that obscures views. This is why glare reducing window treatments are crucial to better guest comfort and ambiance.
Glare and heat often pose a problem which makes dining or lounging unbearable during some of the best times of the day, resulting in these prime areas around striking windows and views empty. It is unfortunate that such areas are avoided due to the excessive heat and glare radiating through the windows.
In addition to blocking glare, solar heat gain and preserving views, reflective blinds also protect fine upholstery, carpets, and floors from fading and damage. So the benefits extended beyond just improving guest experience into savings on energy.
- INTERNAL Reflective Blinds are mounted inside the glass, protected from the wind and the weather
- SEE THROUGH Reflective Blinds are truly transparent like a pair of sun glasses.
- SUN PROTECTION Reflective Blinds offer excellent protection from the sun.
- HEAT Reduction:
- Between 50% and 80% of the HEAT producing solar energy is rejected. (These figures depend on which Reflective Blind film is used, type of glass and window frame, and size of window.)
- GLARE Reduction: Between 91% and 97% of the sun’s GLARE is eliminated (Depends on which Reflective Blind film is used. Glass type will also affect VLT *.)
- FADE Reduction: More than 99% of the harmful UV rays are filtered out. (Furnishings will FADE eight to ten times slower when Reflective blinds are used.)
- WINTER WARMTH Depending on how they are installed, Reflective Blinds can reduce winter heat loss by up to 45%.
- SECURITY Under normal conditions, you cannot see from the outside.
