Lotus Operable Walls are designed to elegantly and efficiently divide your available space for a wide range of environments. From small meeting rooms to large convention centres, operable walls provide you with the flexibility to adapt your space to the activities of the moment.
Available in three specifications:
- 80 Series – specifically designed for basic applications where ceiling heights and acoustic requirements are moderate. (please note limitations on finishes and Rw ratings with the 80s)
- 100 Series – designed for applications where ceiling heights are beyond 3m and acoustic requirements are moderate to high with a broad range of options and finishes available.
- 125 Series – designed for large scale applications where ceiling heights are beyond 3m and acoustic requirements are critical with a range of options and finishes available.

The Lotus Acoustic Operable Wall system comes in three models according to the sound rating required (80, 100 and 125 Series). There are three options for the perimeter frame.
Stiles wrap smoothly around panel edges. The look is neat and clean, as each stile is only 12mm wide. Board edges are totally protected even in the toughest environment.
Fineline (100s only)
An innovation giving you the best of both worlds. Panels are almost frameless with just 4mm of visible vertical trim. Panel corners remain protected.
Overlay (100s only)
Beautiful looking panels with completely concealed perimeter frames. The eye flows across the wall without interruption. Ideal for prestige locations and where careful handling is more likely.
The key to acoustics is determining what your needs are. A sound rating should be chosen to suit the surrounding structure, the sizes of the partitioned areas and use of the space.
At Lotus, we conduct extensive research and testing of our full systems (not just our panels) to ensure that we manufacture walls that are BCA compliant and meet Australian Standard 1191-2002 for acoustical requirements.
See Product Brochure pages 6-7 for a detailed overview of acoustics.
|ACOUSTIC PERFORMANCE - Rw|
|EFFECT||LAB Rw||TYPICAL USE|
|Normal voices may be intelligible||38 - 44||Church Halls, Quiet Meeting Rooms|
|Normal voices barely intelligible||41 - 45||Typical Meeting Rooms, Schools|
|Normal voices unintelligible||45 - 47||Boardrooms, Conference Centres|
|Raised voices barely intelligible||47 - 49||Hotel Function Rooms|
|Major function noise controlled||49 - 55||Convention Centres|
A simple straight track. Each panel is suspended from the central trolley and typically hinged pairs.
Single panels are suspended from two carriers at the top corners of each panel. Panels stack with one carrier remaining on the main track and the other in the side track.
Panels have omni-directional carriers to negotiate L or T junctions and panels are stacked completely away from the main track, sometimes in a cupboard or recessed stacking bay.
An operable wall needs a method of acoustically opening and closing the system. Interlocking panel edges mean that a gap needs to be created along the track to break and stack the panels. This can be achieved using the options below:
- Expanding Panel
- Full Height door (up to 3m only)
There are a range of sweep and retractable seals available with your operable wall.
- Sweep Seals
- Retractable Seals
For a full overview of seal options, please download and refer to pages 10-11 of the Operable Wall brochure.
Lotus Operable Walls come in a range of custom panel, frame and headtrack finishes to suit your requirements. Choosing from our standard finishes range could mean a faster lead time. Speak with one of our technical sales consultants for more details.

We have recently introduced some exciting electronic innovations within our range. These include electric retractable seals to the top and bottom of our Operable Walls as well as electric expanding closure panels. Both of these innovations can be activated at the push of a button, which minimises manual handling and therefore decreases the risk of injury. These features consume a low level of power and generate little noise.
These new innovations to our 100 and 125 series Operable Wall range take the ease, functionality and user experience Lotus are known for to a whole new level.
