Adding much-needed flexibility to the hospitality facilities at the prestigious Mortonhall Golf Club in Edinburgh, Style recently worked with designer, Tangram Furnishers, to install a system of three sliding partitions in the main lounge bar.
With a wide range of design and constructional variants, Dorma Variflex was specified to create a combination of room-size options, allowing for private team dining, club meetings and special events to run concurrently alongside members and guests enjoying the main bar.
Founded in 1892, Mortonhall is the oldest course in the city of Edinburgh, and is regarded as one of Scotland’s premier clubs. With immaculate greens and fairways, the course is a championship test of 6530 yards, and has hosted the Scottish Amateur Stroke Play and the Scottish Youths Tournaments.
David Louden, Style’s director for Scotland, comments: “The Dorma Variflex is an excellent solution for sub-dividing space in older buildings, because it offers very high levels of flexibility – even in the case of complicated room proportions or where sloping ceilings or circular spaces have to be accommodated.”
Allowing the panels to be matched to almost any interior decor, Variflex can also accommodate a wide range of finishes from solid colours, wood veneers, write-on and magnetic surfaces and even painted murals.
Highly engineered for sound acoustic performance as well as precision operation, Style was able to offer the Golf Club a 25-year warranty on the Variflex partitioning system, giving peace of mind that its investment in flexible space creation was a long-term solution. With an acoustic rating of 49dB, events can run in complete privacy without any disturbance.
