Skyfold partitions are automatic, vertically retractable, acoustic wall systems. Skyfold uses a distinctive design to divide space efficiently while achieving the highest sound ratings in the industry like no other system can. Skyfold has always had the end-user and architect in mind in terms of clean lines, more space, less weight, and ease of operability.

Skyfold stores in a pocket in the ceiling, which in turn means no floor space will be taken up whatsoever, all without tracks or jambs. The Skyfold lowers from the ceiling in an “accordion” fashion by a simple press of a button. Skyfold can be set up in minutes!

Skyfold offers design and functionality advantages over typical horizontal folding partitions:

  • Superior acoustics
  • No floor track or wall jambs
  • No floor space used or required for panel stacking
  • Automatic 10-year warranty
  • Wall opens and closes in seconds
  • Push-button operation ensures ease of use for the end user
  • Obstruction-sensing device is standard
  • 6 lbs sqft dead load (versus live load, like a typical horizontal operable wall)
  • Less structural support required than a traditional operable wall
  • Unmatched reliability
