This barn door–style system opens on a rolling track mounted on a trolley bracket. Each panel features small slats that help to absorb sound while adding a decorative architectural element. This system is offered in six natural wood finishes and available in sizes customizable down to a fraction of an inch.

Pivoting Shoin

Fashioned from a glass-and-aluminum profile, this pivoting partition system creates indoor environments pleasing to pass through and view from afar. It can be integrated with operable and fixed panels and is available in a palette of woods, metals, and glossy and opaque lacquered colors.

This glass cubicle system incorporates multiple glass panels that slide to-and-fro. It incorporates a front panel on a plane that is steadily secured by an overhead bar. Views from the other side are obstructed by a privacy trim that lines each door and divider.

This hinged partition is connected to create one complete system: a continuous interlocking panel. The setup time is speedy with the help of an electric motor that triggers opening and closing with a simple push of the touchpad.

A clever set of multiple moveable flat panels lets the user choose what area of the wall to shut or open. Available in 3- and 4-inch thicknesses, the welded steel frame makes the system great for very tall ceilings.

The panel suspension located in the middle of the partition allows the door to slide without a bottom guide channel track, which means space will appear seamless when the door is open.
