PANEL CONSTRUCTION 100U

1. Horizontal Seal
 
To achieve optimum sound
attenuation, a double-shell
construction is used. Working
on the jack principle telescopic,
flexible, spring-loaded double
seals press against the ceiling
track and the floor; the spring
sections taking up any normal
ceiling deflection. Each panel
exerts a load of 80-150 kp on
the floor screed, which is not
sufficient to overload the floor
(particularly when the panels
are parked) but is sufficient to
give the Variflex system enough
stability to avoid its displacement
even when subjected to pressure.

2.Corner Seal

Special corner sections
(DBP P 2306 617.3-09)
act as corner seals and
serve to increase the stability
of the wall.

3. Vertical Seal
 
A 4-way PVC lipped profile
based on a tongued and
grooved principle ensures
good sealing against sound
penetration.

     
4. Magnetic Strip
 
A 4-way magnetic edge strip
bonds adjacent elements with a
force of 7 kp per linear metre.
The modules are aligned by the
concave/convex form of the
magnetic strips.
 
     
5. Facing panels
 
To achieve optimum sound
attenuation, 16 mm thick
chipboard facing panels are
suspended on each side of the
frame. These are acoustically
free to vibrate (DBP No 2049
836). Panels can be covered in
all normal wall finishes and
individual facing panels can be
interchanged in minutes.
 
6. Operating handle
 
Operating the Variflex system is carried
out using a special crank handle.
 

7. Release mechanism

The magnetic force which bonds
adjacent panels together can be
broken by a gentle pulling motion.
 

 

8. Frames
 
The element framework is made
up of aluminium hollow sections
and steel tube profiles. This rigid,
non-deflecting framework,
together with the 16 mm
chipboard facing panels, gives a
module of high strength,
exceptional sound attenuation
and trouble-free operation.
   
9. No floor guides are required.
