Solo vs. Float

We are often asked what the difference is between Solo and Float – both are moving wall systems consisting of individual panels that slide along tracks and stack away to open, close and re-configure spaces…

But, there are fundamental differences between these two market-leading moving wall systems.

The table below quantifies these differences:

Typical applicationMeeting Rooms and Boardrooms where a high level of acoustic integrity is required as well as maintaining space flexibility.Open-plan agile spaces where quick configuring of space is required, without acoustic integrity. Areas where collaboration takes place and writeable, pinnable, magnetic surfaces are needed. Zones where acoustic absorption might be needed to reduce sound transfer at the same time as not ‘fixing’ the space layout.
Panel operation90-degree key winding to operable seals; manually manoeuvre panels.Manually manoeuvre panels. Foot-operated shoot bolts for securing panels in place where required.
