How to design with FLEXX Panels

January 18, 2023

FLEXX your design muscles

In 2021, Maglin Site Furniture introduced the FLEXX Collection, and they were eager to see how designers and landscape architects would use these versatile outdoor panels. Designed as a way to balance togetherness and privacy in shared spaces, FLEXX panels allow a single space to be divided into beautifully segmented areas.

How to design with FLEXX Panels

FLEXX Panels spark delight along a public path

The Red Cross Riverwalk Access project in Wilmington, NC features decorative sidewalks, lighting, and landscaping upgrades that connect to and from the city’s iconic Riverwalk. As people traverse the connector, Maglin FLEXX panels in Kaleidoscope pattern and blue powdercoat create a design focal point.

Defining rooftop amenity areas is a breeze with FLEXX

When designing for rooftops, it’s critical to consider and adapt to the essential equipment that preserves the building’s health and safety. On the 5th floor of Claridge Icon residential building in Ottawa, FLEXX panels serve the dual function of adding architectural beauty while providing separation from the building’s essential structural and mechanical elements.  FLEXX lockable gates provide a secure entry and exit point for maintenance.

Design for peacefulness and privacy in busy public spaces

Busy commercial plazas don’t often inspire feelings of tranquility. Nevertheless, this restaurant patio makes use of FLEXX panels to create a peaceful and private dining area. These attractive steel panels, selected in the Kaleidoscope pattern, serve both as a sunlight-filtering barrier between diners and traffic and as a pretty backdrop for cheerful potted plants.

Custom FLEXX reflects the bountiful green space of the Forest City

Due to its numerous, beautiful pathways and acres of rolling parkland, London, Ontario is called The Forest City. When the retaining wall and hardscaping were updated at the Forks of the Thames (yes, this London has a Thames River, too), custom panels replaced the older railing system. With a laser-cut design inspired by the leafy surroundings, these custom FLEXX panels are worthy of their place of prominence in the Forest City!
