Room separation and acoustic insulation are two very relevant topics in the office world. Linak Fold connects both areas with the linear actuators from Linak.
Fold is an acoustic screen for open spaces and coworking spaces that can also be used as a room divider. Using a mechanism similar to umbrellas, the movement of the liner motor unfolds the fabric. The umbrella can be placed in three different positions.
For presentations or lectures where an open space is required, the umbrella can be folded up on the ceiling. In a single work scenario, the fabric can be unfolded on the ceiling. There he spans a noise absorbing and diffusing textile.
To separate the room, the umbrella can be folded through 90 degrees at a joint in the ceiling bracket and rotated around its own axis.
