As with any equipment or technology, after any given number of years of repeated use it can either become worn out, out of date, obsolete or downright unsafe. Gym dividers and partitions that are out of date can quickly become an area of concern for facility managers and operators, and maintenance or replacement should be considered as your divider or partition gets older.
This was true of our latest project we completed for Holy Trinity High School in the Ottawa Catholic School Board. We were commissioned to remove and dispose of their existing folding partition and supply and install a new state-of-the-art gym divider curtain for the local high school.
Our team quickly and safely removed the old partition and began preparing the space for the new divider curtain to be installed. Once the removal was completed, we were to supply and install our highly-popular top roll gym divider curtain, with a touch of customization.
Our top roll gym divider curtain is perhaps our most esthetically pleasing curtain that completely eliminates the need for cables or belts, and as the name suggests, quickly rolls up into the ceiling for a clean look. Only a 12” opening is needed just above the ceiling area to easily hide the appearance of the curtain, giving the gymnasium a more polished look.
The school had also requested a couple of customizations to be included in the design and installation of their new gym curtain. Firstly, a 3’ x 7’ door opening had to be accounted for and was quickly taken into consideration by both our design and installation team to ensure a flawless fit.
The second customizable option the school requested was a custom colour selection for both sides of the curtain, along with the school logo clearly screen printed on either side of the curtain. This type of school-spirited customization is growing in popularity, with more teams and facilities looking to give their organization a more polished and professional image.
