Sometimes you just need to see it and hear it first. This was definitely the case for the Dwight Englewood School in Englewood, New Jersey.
Earlier this year we met with the facilities team at the Dwight Englewood School. They were considering a Skyfold operable wall for their school, but were having trouble making the final leap in deciding on a wall. Their architect, Gensler, had specified a Skyfold wall, but the facilities team was concerned due to negative experiences with older operable walls and their sound control. The team decided a site visit would be prudent.
A trip to the Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC) was just what the team from the Dwight Englewood School needed. The DTCC has Skyfold walls, so we were able to show them how easy it is to operate the wall and let them hear the acoustic soundproofing on-site. Within minutes they were sold on the idea. The acoustic benefits of Skyfold were too good to pass up. I can’t say I blame them. Skyfold has shown incredible growth and development in the area of acoustics. It’s one of the great features that Skyfold operable partitions have.
