Silverstone partitions supported by Style

During the recent hosting of the Formula 1 Grand Prix at Silverstone, partitioning experts from Style were requested to be on hand at a prestigious hospitality venue, ensuring a crucial moveable wall system that divides the main room into private spaces for the world’s sporting press, operated smoothly and with maximum acoustic performance.

Style’s aftercare and service division offers regular check-ups of almost any partitioning wall system, helping maintain the acoustic performance of the system, extend its lifespan, as well as ensuring operation remains within current health and safety guidelines.

Seven years ago, Style installed a semi-automatic DORMA moveable wall to quickly reconfigure the space at the hospitality suite at Silverstone known as The Wing. As part of an annual service and maintenance agreement, Style’s team of engineers are always on hand during the high-profile F1 Grand Prix. This removes stress from the organisers and offers genuine added value to a high-profile client, reassuring management and staff that the room will function efficiently as a key media centre for this global event.

“Watching our team in action to quickly help reconfigure the room in time for the world’s press to arrive is similar to the speed and precision of Lewis Hamilton’s team when he comes in for a tyre change,” joked Mike Fine, Style’s director for the Midlands.

“But on a serious note, it’s a room arrangement that changes an open plan conference suite into a private area with a corridor, and the team at Silverstone are extremely grateful that we are there to assist in altering the space once a year. It’s reassuring to have our technicians on hand to ensure the wall is correctly positioned and that the acoustics are spot on.

“The Wing at Silverstone has also got potential for greater flexibility because, when we installed the moveable wall back in 2011, we future proofed the room by putting in additional tracks. It means if they decide to divide the room further, at a later date, they can split it into thirds.”
