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.

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.

Flexibility has been missing from schools and now it has become an important tool to keep schools open and help learning post-COVID
Flexible, multipurpose areas that encourage students to take part in learning outside just as much as they do in classrooms is key, and the Sky-Frame 3 Plain system completely dissolves the boundaries between inside and outside thanks to the hidden transition that is flush-fitted with the floor.
Consistent thermal insulation is ensured by triple-glazed elements and state-of-the-art insulation materials. As a result, Sky-Frame 3 Plain – a huge expanse of glass – can be used in regions that experience extreme cold across Australia from cold alpine areas to hot coastal regions without compromising thermal insulation.
The sliding window glides over a narrow opening in the floor. The space between these tracks is covered by the same flooring as the interior of the room, which reinforces the feeling of a free-flowing transition between indoors and outdoors. As soon as the windows are open, this seamless transition becomes a pleasing experience. A single, 13mm narrow floor gap per track meets the highest standards in design for builders and architects.
A market revolution has come about with Sky-Frame Plain, delivering a striking visual design and combining it with full thermal insulation.
EASY TO MAINTAIN AND CLEAN
Thanks to the innovative system design, it’s easy to maintain and clean. A universal cleaning attachment included with the product makes cleaning the floor gap a simple and easy task.
Sky-Frame Plain is available with Sky-Frame Drive – an electric drive for effortless, whisper quiet operation, and also Sky-Frame Fly – an insect screen so you can enjoy warm summer evenings without being bothered by insects.
The window sizes range from an impressive 2.3m in width up to 4m in height.

Hawa The face of a building is given variable expressions by means of sliding technology. Regardless of whether the façade is to be open or closed depending on the time of day, whether it needs to withstand certain climatic influences or it needs to convey a unique architectural idea. Sliding technology is the key to the best and most individual solution.
Sliding solutions on buildings set distinctive accents in the overall architectural picture. They are the first business card of building architecture, an expression of design identity, the make-up on the face of the house. And they offer functional benefits that are in no way inferior to the visual ones. The Hawa Frontfold folding sliding system proves that most impressively. This fitting makes it easy as pie to slide wooden or aluminum shutters and store them folded in a small space at a 90 degree angle to the window front. Inside, it opens up a wide range of possibilities for residents for fascinating light and shadow interactions. Outside, it creates the picture of a lively, changeable façade. It also benefits the climate: Variable outside shading on sunlit windows can keep the inside temperature considerably lower. Especially since the Hawa Frontfold unfolds its qualities even on large areas.
The goal in education settings is to create flexible, fun and innovative workspaces. Typically, when a space gets smaller it also gets darker; the main challenge is always to maintain an optimal level of light within the workspaces, whether the wall is open or closed. Hufcor’s glass operable walls offer bright white, high-gloss magnetic markerboard providing an acoustic separation space. The surface can therefore be used by all students and becomes part of the room concept.
Adaptable room configuration with Hufcor operable walls offer colour and textures from all laminate and fabric house collection. The partition wall makes it easier to maximise or minimise the meeting space of learning with comfort.
Teaching and learning has changed and will continue to change, and it is therefore important that the spaces within which we learn change accordingly to represent different pedagogies. Creating a stimulating environment can be achieved through the effective use of design and colour, and forms an integral part of an environment conducive to learning, memory retention, and concentration.
Colour too plays a key role in creating an environment that fosters learning. In fact, according to Dr Robert Gerard, colour is a part of the electromagnetic spectrum which can effect neurological pathways in the brain, and a result can create a biochemical response. Therefore, using the right colour along with good placement choices can seriously affect the feelings, attention and behaviour of students when learning.
Neutral colours are recommended for walls, while a splash of colour can be added through furniture and joinery to what may be an otherwise dull classroom. Since colour is not used in large amounts on furniture, it does not have the same effect as bright colours on wall or furniture applications.
Decorative battens can provide a warm and rich textural appearance for a wide variety of panelling, ideal for wall and ceiling applications in with vertical or horizontal set outs. Prefinished decorative battens create strong directional lines adding a striking feature and depending on its application, can enable visibility for the safety of younger children. Spacing is the distance between each individual batten, and will not only affect the aesthetics but any ancillary function. Privacy improves as does acoustics and the control of sunlight. As the distance between battens increases, these abilities are reduced somewhat. However, visibility, that is being able to see through the series of battens is improved. In addition to boasting warm natural aesthetics, as we have discussed decorative battens can help with everything from privacy and acoustic protection to sun and light control.
Blending unique textures, tones and finishes to achieve a contemporary look when it comes to cabinetry and joinery is important to design as previously discussed, as it is to combining warm colours with cool accents, and matt surfaces with a glossy finish. This also includes lockers and benchtops which also need to hold up to heavy daily use.
Durability and low maintenance are considered together as a criterion for product selection in education. Polytec provides materials that perform under tough conditions and don’t contribute to the ongoing maintenance schedule of a building.
Bildspec recently completed another quality installation of their Series 100 Double Glazed Operable Acoustic Walls at the PM Gym, part of PM Port Melbourne at 320 Plummer Street – luxurious high-rise apartment living at its finest.
PM includes two residential towers and a luxury apartment hotel as part of a grand renewal plan for the area. Located in the new suburb of Fisherman’s Bend, PM is changing the street scene with the evolution of the sleepy industrial estate into a bustling, vibrant suburb to accommodate 40,000 new residents which access to eight new green spaces, walking trails, bicycle lanes, an extended tram line into the city, three new schools, and within walking distance of the beach and waterfront cafes and bars.
Designed by Elenberg Fraser, the complex is as luxurious in its exterior as it is inside. Luxurious amenities include a health and wellness retreat with state-of-the-art gymnasium.
Bildspec was engaged to supply and install bespoke double glazed acoustic moving walls intended to provide an acoustic separation between the main Workout room and weights gym. This uniquely designed project required 3 off pivot panels requiring precision alignment between the inset display windows and the archway above them. The top track has been concealed in the arched window mullion to ensure a seamless connect between the different bottom sections and overhead panels.
The “Navurban Clifton Hill” Veneer (by New Aged Veneers) coupled with the Electro Dark Bronze frame colour contributes to a clean, relaxed and natural finish befitting such a luxurious wellness centre.
