KOC installs Dorma wall system
Kuwait, July 2, 2012
Kuwait Oil Company (KOC) has become the first in Middle East to use a high-tech movable wall system by Dorma, a global manufacturer of door technology systems and allied products.
The Dorma Moveo system was installed in KOC’s Sabriya Collaboration Centre which oversees oil production in Kuwait. Suspended from ceiling tracks, the Dorma wall is a fiberglass construction up to 50 per cent lighter than conventional moveable walls.
It provides soundproofing up to 55 decibel, roughly equivalent to everyday conversation, a statement said.
The partition can be deployed by a single person with ease and folds away into a compact storage space far away from the partition location, it added.
Ahmed Al Jasmi, team leader, Research and Technology said: “This product is an extremely impressive lightweight movable wall system, proving to be extremely cost effective against manual systems.”
“Dorma Moveo is fully compatible with KOC’s SMART building automation controls. We are very happy with the support we have got from the Dorma sales, operation and technical teams, which has developed into an excellent working relationship.”
Hayel Orakait, country manager, Dorma Kuwait said: “We are very pleased with KOC being our very end user to install our new product Moveo Comfort Drive movable wall in one of their operation rooms in KOC Headquarters. Our product demonstrates the differentiation of Dorma and reflects the leadership of Dorma in the industry.”
The Dorma Moveo system is available in three product variations to meet specific user requirements. The Smart Line is ideal for average room heights and low sound insulation requirements (37 dB), while the Business Line offers a solution for moderate to high sound insulation values (47 and 55 dB) and has a more sophisticated finish.
High acoustic values (55 dB) combined with high-quality, aesthetically pleasing surface finishes are offered by the Design Line.
When it comes to parking the Moveo panels, there are six stacking alternatives and each takes up a relatively small area – which benefits the general aesthetics of the room – and their light weight have little effect on the structural integrity of the building, according to the system. – TradeArabia News Service
