Floor Supported Monoplan at The Auction House, Luton
The recently completed installation of a floor supported Monoplan Moveable Wall by Becker (Sliding Partitions) Ltd. at the 'Auction House' Banqueting and Conference venue in Luton has proved to be a valuable asset to their client. The moveable wall provides acoustic division of the main function suite when required, thereby allowing the hosting of 2 simultaneous events.
During an initial survey it was established that the roof structure of the building could not provide sufficient support for the Monoplan system to be top hung.
Once it was established that installation of additional steelwork was expensive and impractical, it was decided to fix the head track to plywood patresses located above the plasterboard ceiling. The light weight metal framing to the ceiling provides adequate lateral restraint at the head. The load bearing floor track was fixed to the concrete deck and raised sufficiently to finish flush with the top of the carpet.
When a single large floor area is required the wall panels are parked away in a far corner of the function suite.
