Demountable walls offer private spaces within an open floor plan

As a flexible alternative to traditional construction, movable and demountable walls have become commonplace in the built environment. In our world of constant change, businesses no longer have to choose between visual/acoustical privacy and the freedom of flexibility.

Modular office walls deliver superior acoustical performance for increased productivity. These wall systems also offer significant time and cost savings during the initial construction phase and over the lifetime of the space, as they enable easy reconfigurations when business needs change.

Demountable walls let in natural light, creating a transparent aesthetic within open plan environments. With low trim options and butt glazing, you can create an elegant, streamlined aesthetic.
