Summit® vertical lift walls take flexible space in a completely different direction—up. Unlike traditional operable panels that move horizontally through a large, exposed cavity in the ceiling, Hufcor’s patented vertical lift system moves acoustic operable panels through a narrow slot in the ceiling and stacks them neatly hidden out of sight. All this with a simple push of a button! This space-saving and attractive design maximizes an interior’s available floor space and makes Summit® vertical lift walls a great choice for convention centers, hotel ballrooms, learning institutions and training centers -- anywhere that superior and attractive space and sound management must exist in harmony with maximizing free floor space.
Often, clear floor space is critical, and Summit® offers more clear floor space utilization than any horizontal movable wall can offer. No partition stacks to get in the way (or the need to build pocket doors to hide). No floor tracks eating into your clear floor space creating trip hazards and places for debris to accumulate.
Summit® vertical lift walls represent the very best in beauty, simplicity, space and sound management with design flexibility. The heart of Summit® is a proprietary retractable lift system which is built for durability and provides unequaled space optimization without sacrificing sight lines or aesthetics. Also standard with Summit® is the new Hufcor Touchpad backlit LCD controller which provides the utmost in security and operation of use in a simple, easy-to-use platform.
Aesthetics are essential, and we offer a wide range of finish and construction options which will meet design and functional criteria for virtually any project. Surface finish selections include vinyl, fabric, carpet, murals and other custom surfaces — Hufcor can even factory-apply a surface treatment provided by the customer.
Accommodates Large Openings
Opening heights up to 17′ 6″ (5.33m) and widths up to 40′ (12.1m) cover a wide range of movable partition openings.
Out of Sight Storage
Proprietary design allows panels to stack above ceiling and to cascade down through a narrow slot — the least obtrusive and most aesthetically attractive vertical lift wall system in the market.
Interlocking panel edges and track seals contributes to a 51 STC acoustical rating for excellent sound management. Sound absorbent surface treatments are also available to minimize reflected sound.
