Style Service Team Saves Moveable Wall

Style, the UK’s leading supplier of moveable wall systems, has the contract to provide scheduled servicing of the large number of partitioning walls installed at a major university.

In a recent visit, the service engineers noticed that the carriers fitted on a wall not originally supplied and fitted by Style, were cracked. This was causing issues with the moveable wall’s operation, and Style’s technicians advised that the carriers needed to be replaced to avoid further damage in the long term.

“This is an excellent example of why it’s so important to have your moveable, folding or partitioning walls routinely serviced,” said Hannah Thorneycroft, service manager for Style North.

“Without replacing the carriers, the operation of this wall would have become increasingly difficult, which often results in operators using excessive force to open and close it, leading to even worse damage further down the line.

“By spotting the problem early, we were able to replace the carriers and return the moveable wall to its original smooth operation, saving a considerable amount of time and money.”

Style first had to source the specific carriers that worked with this type of moveable wall and having found a supplier, they ordered 30 and replaced them on site.

With an in-house trained team of employed service engineers, Style offers nationwide emergency call-out cover as well as planned maintenance contracts. A standard service visit includes a thorough inspection of the overall operation of a moveable wall, as well as checks on the acoustic integrity of the system and compliance with health and safety requirements.
