Hufcor Launches Touchscreen Controller

Touchscreen leads the charge to render lock cylinders in master key switches obsolete for powered walls.  Normally, when keys are lost or employee turnover dictates, the master cylinder in the control needs to be replaced.  With Touchscreen, this additional headache and expense is eliminated.

Hufcor, a global leader in flexible space management and operable partitions, announces the launch of a new Touchscreen controller for Hufcor’s electrically-powered walls.   This state-of-the-art control unit now comes standard with all Hufcor powered wall systems and can replace nearly all Hufcor push-button and key switch controllers (including master key switches) dating back to 2008 installation.

Hufcor’s Touchscreen controller features a premium and easy to read backlit display with 2 levels of built-in password protection and a password reset function.  Initial set-up is easy, taking less than 3 minutes once installed and powered.  Touchscreen is compatible with the use of a secondary switch as well as all safety systems and limit switches found in Hufcor powered walls including the Hufgard Safety System.  Further, Touchscreen provides fault detection and instant diagnostic feedback for common operations restraints such as pocket doors not open and second switch not pressed.

Touchscreen also leads the charge to render lock cylinders in master key switches obsolete for powered walls.  Normally, when keys are lost or employee turnover dictates, the master cylinder in the control needs to be replaced.  With Touchscreen, this additional headache and expense is eliminated.

Touchscreen is compatible for use with all Hufcor’s powered movable wall systems including Series 600™ electric train, the new Electric Unispan® electric train movable and Summit® powered vertical walls.

The Science of Sound Part VII: Beating Flanking Paths

The first step to beating flanking paths is to look at how all of the elements work together from floor to roof-the partition, the space between the ceiling and the roof, the floor, even HVAC ductwork can help or hinder flanking paths.

Shoddy construction, customary construction practices, or poor installation of the partition can all contribute to the leaks, known as flanking paths.
