A recently completed at project for Glasgow Science Centre which included a mobile whiteboard partition with built in cupboards as part of the scheme.
Glasgow Science Centre were looking for a multi-function mobile wall or screen which could easily be moved around to reconfigure large open spaces for a variety of uses. This could be anything mobile displays and galleries to making temporary rooms or corridors.
We used a custom version of our ThinkingWall Divider with upgrades and additions to meet the brief. All units were custom made and manufactured to meet the health and safety regulations at Glasgow Science Centre.
Of the 15 units we supplied in total three were manufactured with built in cupboards for additional storage. The remaining units were of a more standard design with drywipe and magnetic receptive faces to both sides and the end panels.
All edges of the units were finished with a light grey plastic edging to protect against bumps and knocks and to help differentiate the panel edges for visually impaired visitors.
Each of these units was also fitted with a set of brackets and connecting pins to allow the walls to be joined together in groups. The connecting pins allow for multiple configurations from zig-zags, straight runs and right angled corners.
The mobile whiteboard partition with built cupboards provide additional storage whilst retaining the full drywipe writing surface to both sides. The cupboards are integrated into both ends to give a large full height storage area. The doors are made in the same whiteboard material, so it linked with look of the other units and finished with soft close hinges and neat inset handles.
We look forward to finding out how these units get used and will keep an eye on future events at Glasgow Science Centre to see if they make an appearance.
