header image for school retrofit glass walls blog post


Hufcor's acoustic glass wall has become a favorite among new educational facilities by offering great flexibility, solid acoustics and daylighting options. Now, educational facilities are chosing movable acoustic glass walls for rennovating classrooms within existing schools. No other case study demonstrates this more clearly than the Queen Mary College in Quebec, Canada. Hufcor's Canadian licensee, Corflex Partitions, installed the project in 2013.

The classroom is completely opened up to full daylighting to penetrate into the entire space. The glass walls will block up to 44 dB of sound with the double insulated glass glazing. And, the classroom in opened for security and observation within the room. Finally, the room can be opened up to offer a larger teaching space and flexible learning areas for group discussions and team projects.

In this space, Corflex installed traditional overhead tracking systems anchored into the thick concrete overhead ceilings. Yet for schools and offices looking to retrofit an acoustic glass wall into an existing space without adaquate overhead support, Hufcor can provide a patented turnkey overhead suppport system, Unispan, that can be assembled on site and installed to transfer the weight of the partitions to the floor. Hufcor’s BIM Revit families are provided with the optional Hufcor Unispan support system as shown. Interested in the new Hufcor GA1/GA2 Revit families, click below for your link.

The Queen Mary College (College Reine Marie) is a great example how Hufcor’s acoustical glass wall systems can be used within retrofits. For more information, visit hufcor.com or contact your local representative today.
