Plasterboard walls have been replaced with fecoplan all-glass constructions. Supported only on the floor and ceiling with 50 mm slim profiles, the glass corridor-wall with no vertical upright profiles offers maximum visibility. The 4-mm-wide glass joints are translucently taped with glass adhesive tapes with passivated front edges in a consistently high quality. The glass is 12 mm ESG with a sound insulation test value of Rw,P = 37 dB. For higher requirements, 16 mm LSG-SI with Rw,P = 42 dB is used. Frame-integrated glazing beads enable the transition to the slim fecoplan door frames, while 3D clamping angles ensure permanently-closed mitre corners.

Extra-wide, frame-integrated technology door side-panels as a special object solution with a 15-cm viewing area allow door displays, light switches and sockets to be accommodated. Depending on requirements, the wooden door elements are designed as fecotür H60 with door leaves that are flush with the frame on both sides and a sound insulation test value of Rw,P = 37 dB, or as fecotür H40 wooden doors that are flush with the frame on the room side and with a sound insulation test value of Rw,P = 32 dB. The aluminium profiles and door frames are powder-coated in RAL 9016 Traffic White, and the door leaves are coated with a matching HPL laminate. In areas with open office landscapes, fecoplan glass walls as sound screens contribute to an improvement in room acoustics.

The PTV Group, which since 2017 has been part of Porsche SE, has created a future-oriented and agile working environment that promotes team spirit, communication and innovation. Glass feco system partition walls play an essential part of this.
