Bildspec’s acoustic operable walls assist in the reduction of both acoustic transmission and energy consumption making them practical and environmentally friendly.
Bildspec’s walls are often utilised to allow clients greater flexibility with their various work, educational or leisure spaces, through the creation of multiple rooms, board rooms, breakout rooms and multipurpose break out spaces. These operable walls offer each application varying acoustic properties, that are not only fit for purpose but also highly attractive and user friendly. Operable walls allow a limited transfer of sound from the external office into the smaller individual space.
Bildspec operable walls also assist in the reduction of energy consumption and heat loss. These include improved insulation (the reduction of conduction losses) and reducing air leakage (convective losses). Different combinations of top/bottom seals, as well as their various board/panel constructions and face finishes are crucial in the wall’s ability to prevent heat moving through solid parts of the wall such as panels and rails. Furthermore, different jamb configurations assist in the loss of heat from air movement near to and in the space between the panel and its frame. Operable walls therefore can sustainably reduce the energy consumption required to heat or cool the relevant space.
Careful consideration should be given to choosing face finishes which assist in absorbing or reflecting heat and sound as required. These different surface finishes can improve the NRC (Noise Reduction Coefficient)/reverberation of the space through sound absorption. Customers can choose between glass, or a combination of multiple solid materials including timber veneers, high pressure laminates, 2 pack polyurethane, colour back glass and fabrics face finishes. The choice depends on the look, feel, acoustic and energy environment you are trying to create in the various spaces.
Over their 50+ years in business, Bildspec have supplied operable walls into many high-quality commercial fit-outs, as well as many other legal & financial firms, educational facilities, local state and federal governments, and even emergency services. Bildspec is 100% Australian-owned and all of their components and products are locally sourced and made. Bildspec is the oldest and the first operable wall manufacturer in Australia. They have the most operable wall-experienced staff compliment in Australia. Bildspec is the only NSW-based operable wall manufacturer.
Bildspec are unique in their focus on an ecologically sustainable future by sourcing product from suppliers who are equally committed. They source their timber-based products from suppliers who commit to a sustainable management of resources and responsible harvesting of timber. Furthermore, Bildspec are committed to using water-based glues which are derived from either natural polymers or soluble synthetic polymers and are friendly to the environment.
