Avanti, a premier provider of glass wall solutions, sliding glass doors and working walls, manufactures a full line of operable walls that are solutions for room dividers and partitions. Movable Walls are an economical system for quickly and easily dividing a wide range of areas, particularly meeting areas, schools and commercial areas, such as retail stores. This is beneficial for converting spaces into separate areas for privacy, security, storage and versatility.

These walls, sometimes called “working walls” can be as attractive as they are functional. Walls can slide or fold and be constructed of glass, opaque, finished wood, vinyl or other materials and can be manually or semi-automatically operated.

Glass operable walls

A double glazed glass operable wall system combines acoustic performance with ease of operation as well as having a different aesthetic – one that can take advantage of the versatility of designs that are possible with glass. For example, LCD glass is an option as well as frosting or graphics and interior privacy blinds. There is even the option of writing walls with dry erase for meeting rooms and schools.

There is also the benefit of sound reduction and acoustic performance, particularly with when installed with seals. Walls can be top hung with silent rollers, with or without a floor track. Walls can run on straight, curved or angled tracks. Bolts and locking frames make the walls secure and sturdy when closed.
