In 2007, HUFCOR had the opportunity to get involved in the design of the tallest operable partition project in the Doha Convention Center located in the natural resource rich country of Qatar. We subsequently won the project and the partition set-up was recently completed after 7 years of involvement. This is a proud moment for HUFCOR and as the tallest movable partitions in the world, it is a testament to our research & development, design, engineering, manufacturing and project management capabilities. HUFCOR’s one-stop total solution continues to be valued by architects and interior design companies and our worldwide track record in setting up movable partition that are 10 meter and above are unmatched in this industry where durability and ease of operation are critical elements to consider when picking the right operable partition company. Stay tune to this blog as we will be posting photos of these stunning 18 meter tall panels in the near future…………

This year, we launched a series of quality products to take flexible space management in a new direction. Introducing the Summit™ Vertical Lift partitions.
The Summit™ Vertical Lift system takes acoustic operable panels through a narrow slot and stacks them neatly above the ceiling. The slot width is only 125mm, making it difficult to spot, but easy to see how it can enhance visual aesthetics. The unique, automated lifting and stacking device does not need any additional installation of moving parts, which is highly convenient and lowers the probability of maintenance. Built with an interlocking system of seals, this unique partition can prevent sound leaks between panels. Undergoing even stricter quality control, the safety system ensures reliability.
And with all these benefits, California’s Time Warner Cable Sports Television and Duke University in North Carolina decided to implement our partitions. Want a sneak peek of how they look? Watch them in action in our demo video.
By using Summit™, the office of Time Warner Cable Sports Television not only saves space, but also creates a more flexible work area by separating off a lounge for staff to enjoy. What’s more, by using a green cup, we instantly tested the partitions to see how they can stop their downward movement and reverse if they should encounter a person or object.
Duke University in North Carolina also made use of the Summit™ to satisfy their diverse needs. All while showcasing the details of the series and its operation.

Our Malaysia Marketing team was in for a royal treat. Visiting the Syarqiyyah Palace Terengganu, they captured the beauty of the tallest operable wall in Malaysia – a sign of success for HUFCOR. Design is vital to the palace, a place fitted with chandeliers and furniture designed with the best craftsmanship.
The HUFCOR operable wall is set to be installed within the Throne Room. Reaching 12 metres tall, the wall is also known for its high acoustic performances of STC47. 2 sets of Classic™ 7000 Series partitions featuring 31 panels each will be finished with wood engravings and a silver coating at the centre. Indeed, designed to complement the ambience of luxury and prestige.
Apart from the Throne Room, HUFCOR also installed its Aluminum 5000R partitions in the dining hall. The panels reach 6 metres in height and also attain an acoustic level of STC47, while being uniquely finished with wallpaper. Arrange these panels together and be in for a surprise. Feel as if you have put together a painting on a black and white canvas that features Malaysia’s local culture. An art of appreciation truly on display. Awesome, isn’t it?

Recently, we are proud to announce that we installed partitions for the WWF Hong Kong – providing a flexible workplace to help foster better productivity and efficiency.
It also comes as an encouragement to receive overwhelming support from WWF Hong Kong, especially after they gave us a letter of complement for our quality partitions and services. Showcasing a prime example of the beauty of our partitions and the flexible workplaces that can come to life because of them.
Upholding a high regard for social responsibility, we strive to continue being a company with high values of integrity that gives back to society. Because we believe it’s always better to give than receive – especially if it’s a helping hand.
While HUFCOR products can be found in many major industries within Hong Kong, none is as prevalent as the government sector.
Like the Tamar Central Government Offices project that was completed in 2012, HUFCOR provided solutions for a flexible workspace and high soundproofing environment. Hand chosen to work hand in hand with the government on many large-scale projects, we have been found in many government establishments – from Tin Shui Wai Sports Centre to the Wan Chai Market to the MWP Solar Tower and more.
Truly building on the 110 years of success HUFCOR has experienced throughout the times.

Our operable partitions let you shape your space to your heart’s content.
