Whole Wall Panels and Partitions

Traditionally the construction of internal walling systems has been an onsite construction process involving the adaptation and use of standard sized components to create walls of any size.

This is a very flexible approach and is particularly suited to the needs of the refurbishment sector. However, inevitably the installation process can be time consuming, requires a considerable amount of manual handling, can involve a considerable amount of material waste and unless the workmanship is excellent the visual appearance can be such as to require an additional wet trade finish.

A number of manufacturers are now bringing factory finished whole wall systems to the market that are manufactured under controlled conditions to meet the precise dimensions and other requirements of the project. This can include service runs. These systems are fully factory finished and installation – usually direct from the delivery vehicle – is rapid. These systems offer a number of benefits including: speed of installation, quality of finish, minimisation of material waste, elimination of manual handling, minimising the number of trades on site and ensuring predictability of specification.
