SWG 120 Folding Partitioning
Folding partition – a hinged wall system for partitioning rooms, offering a moderate acoustic barrier and with a standard fitted door in the end element. Elements will always park on the main line at one or both sides. SWG120 is also available in a BD (fire resistance) version.
SWG 600 Mobile Partitioning
Mobile partition – a highly flexible solution when the emphasis is on acoustic insulation, function and easy parking of elements. This partition is designed with individual mobile elements with mechanical sealing at the floor and top rail – elements can be parked in a side track outside the main line and have acoustic insulation qualities up to Rw 59 dB. SWG600 is also available in a BD (fire resistance) version.
SWG 600 Mobile Partitioning EASYmatic
A mobile partitioning with EASYmatic® feature, which locks the closed position with an electrically controlled system. Each element has built in telescopic sealing's top and bottom with the push of 2000N, which makes the wall very stable. Edge profiles can be with or without magnetic sealing's.
SWG 600 Mobile Partitioning Full Glass Elements
SWG600 Full Glass Elements is a transparant partitioning with 50 mm narrow frames behind glass. An elegant solution where elements may be combined with other elements in the SWG600 EASYmatic series - without compromising the sound proof effectiveness. The solution provides a sound reduction of Rw 50 dB throughout
SWG 900 Folding partitioning Wood/Glass
A wood/glazed folding partition designed as a hinged system based on SWG120 with approx. 70 mm wood framing and glass for the partitioning of rooms where a transparent solution is required.
SWG 920 Folding partitioning Full Glass
Frameless glass mobile partitioning system
– a visually pleasing and elegant solution in toughened glass for space division. Elements have no vertical framing, ensuring almost 100% transparent partitioning. A super solution for open plan office layouts and indoor retail facades.
Functional solutions for subdivision of room space
How to make the best use of expensive floor space has always been something of a challenge to the building industry. Dividing a large room into two or more smaller rooms is not just a question of providing physical separation – the solution has to be flexible, soundproof and fire resistant, and have an attractive design.
The option finally arrived at can be influenced by several factors, each of which can play a crucial part in the final result. Economy is often a key factor but the qualities offered by the product – and their documentation in the form of comprehensive testing – are also of vital importance to the finished result.
Many companies supply partitioning, and it can be difficult to compare the solutions offered by different suppliers. This is primarily because there are no general industry standards or specifications that would otherwise permit a professional and objective comparison of products. Official standards are also few and far between – for example, there are no danish or european standards for the fire rated labelling of mobile partitioning.
When building regulations stipulate fire standards for a partition wall, the local fire authorities have to approve the solution in every single instance. In an attempt to facilitate this process, we have therefore tested our products according to current standards in an accredited testing institute to ensure that the authorities have a firm basis on which to make their assessment.
As far as acoustic standards are concerned, the picture is similar. Here, it is not just an authority which approves the product’s qualities but users themselves. and that can prove to be an even stricter evaluation. The actual acoustic management between two rooms depends very much on the quality of the product.
Test & Control
SWG’s expertise is based not only on many years’ experience of mobile room partitioning. We also build our solutions on hard facts. for example, all swg products undergo a quality assurance process which forms the basis of our own high standard – possibly the highest on the market. so when we say that the product has a fire resistance equivalent to bd 60 / ei 60 – it is not an approximate value, it is a tested and proven fact. Similarly, our acoustic insulation of rw 59 db is laboratory tested and given as a product guarantee.
It is only by testing and monitoring that we can guarantee the qualities of our products – a guarantee that assures you 100% that you are getting what you asked for.
All processes are controlled from a to z in accordance with a predetermined procedure. You are therefore entitled to expect that every stage of design, production and assembly is one controlled and professional process – and always in accordance with our own high quality standards.
SWG manufactures all its products and solutions at its own factory in Sweden or in conjunction with a quality supplier in Germany. In that way, we can be sure of delivering top quality.
Delivering high quality means that swg’s products are not always the cheapest on the market, if you measure things only by cost price. on the other hand, we are sure that over the long term our price is very competitive.
In swg you have a business partner who accepts responsibility and is determined always to deliver the right and best result for you. In other words, price is only one of the things you should focus on with swg.
You should also take into account all the things we save you ...
Under Scandinavian Building Regulations fire standards are often laid down for any partition incorporating a mobile or folding wall. A mobile or folding wall can be delivered as a BD 30 (30-min.) or BD 60 (60-min.) building element. None of these walls can be executed as self-closing systems. It is necessary for users to close the partitions correctly.
In many cases a fire standard is equivalent to a high acoustic standard. In practice, it means that a noticeable passage of sound will indicate that the partition is not correctly closed.
There is no official standard for fire classification (labelling) of mobile or folding walls because the Standard lays down no guidelines in this field. In the event that building regulations require that mobile or folding partitioning must conform with fire requirements, it is the local fire authority that must approve the partition.

SWG has fire-tested its partitioning in accordance with current European standards in order to give you and the authorities a solid basis for assessment.

Customers often have good acoustic insulation at the top of their wish-list – along with flexibility in their mobile partitioning. The need for acoustic insulation is individual, depending on what the two adjacent rooms are used for.
SWG's product range includes a series of sound-absorbing mobile partitioning systems. Folding partitions can provide a sound-reduction factor of Rw = 31 - 48 dB, while mobile walls can deliver a sound-reduction factor of Rw = 39 – 59 dB. These sound-reduction factors refer to analyses conducted in sound laboratories.
