About Brownsburg West Middle School
Brownsburg West Middle School underwent a 3-year expansion and renovation, adding 41,000 square feet. It added new classrooms in the 6th-grade wing, reconfigured the entrance, as well as added more parking. This project also included a renovation of the cafetorium for the 963-student body of 6th, 7th and 8th graders.
To close off the food service area from the auditorium area, 4 Skyfold Zenith® 55 vertically retracting moveable walls were installed. These Zenith® walls were finished on one side with white-colored vinyl and on the other with a custom graphic that was field applied. Principal Nicole Walker said, “the walls are a great addition to the overall aesthetics of the cafetorium, with the custom graphic matching other design features of the space.” When the walls are not being used, they store in the ceiling so they don’t take up valuable floor space and there are no floor or wall tracks to take away from the aesthetics of the space.

Café Manager Sara Whittemore stated that “the walls are a great benefit to being able to close off the food serving and prep area from the seating area. During events, noises made in doing food prep is not transferred to the seating area.” The wall completely seals, achieving a superior soundproofing STC rating of 55, meaning speech cannot be heard through the walls, and loud sounds are only faintly audible.
The key feature of the Skyfold Zenith® 55 is the vertically folding elements at the top portion of the wall with a straight-down descent thereafter. This makes the Skyfold Zenith® 55 the ideal flexible space solution for areas with obstructions nearby, like the cash registers in the case at Brownsburg West Middle School. The safety obstruction sensor located along the bottom edge of the wall ensures the prevention of any injuries while the wall is being deployed.
