Folding Operable Walls Perth

Maximum height of 3.75m and maximum length of 5.6m.

Featuring fully articulating hinges that allow the panels to be configured to any shape you require, our folding operable walls are amongst our most popular partitions in Western Australia.

Made from lightweight yet high-quality materials and set on smooth-rolling wheels that glide effortlessly over carpet and hard floors, our operable walls can be set up in moments by just about anyone. The flexible folding design allows you freedom to customise your room in any way you desire, which is a great option for ‘future-proofing’ an area that may serve a variety of functions.

Sliding Operable Walls Perth

Maximum height of 3.75m and maximum length of 4.6m.

A straightforward design with a simple telescoping function, sliding operable walls are the perfect option for spaces that simply need to be divided in two. The first panel attaches to the wall with the same pivoting connection point as our folding operable walls, giving you a little more freedom to decide the direction it opens when dividing up your space.

Due to their overlapping panels, this style of partition is a little bit shorter than the folding variant.

How Perth Businesses are Benefiting from Operable Walls

Flexible Environments

Transforming Spaces in WA

Whether you’re based in Perth’s CBD or out in rural WA, businesses, schools, hospitals, and more can maximise their space with operable walls.

Turning large areas into multipurpose rooms, and then folding back up again to open up the space when needed, our operable walls are the flexible, cost-effective, and convenient solution for businesses throughout Western Australia. The partitions are designed to mount to the wall with ease, and roll into position in moments without the need for heavy lifting. For other freestanding units or modular office cubicles as well as operable walls check out our Office Partitions Perth range

Controlling Sound

Noise control is going to be a challenge no matter which industry you’re working in, which is why at Portable Partitions Australia, we aim to offer Perth businesses an acoustic partitioning solution that won’t break the bank.

Mounting to the wall to allow for a taller design, our operable walls come covered in a pinnable fabric which offers outstanding acoustic performance. Absorbing sound to minimise noise and echoing within the space, these panels can be used to create a quieter and more comfortable environment where people can focus on their work without distraction.

HVAC Friendly Product

No Tracks. No Builders. No Worries!

While more permanent solutions such as roof-mounted partitions may offer greater sound isolating properties, installing them is a costly and time-consuming process that requires the services of a professional builder. And even once installed, many people find this style of partition slow, frustrating, and awkward to set up.

Not so with our operable walls!

Set on smooth-rolling castors and mounted to a wall at one end without the need for support beams, a track system, or permanent alterations, operable walls are so easy to put together you can assemble them yourself with minimal building experience.

And should you ever need to relocate to a new premises, you can simply detach the partition from the wall and transport it to your new location, saving you money on future furniture and office fitouts.

HVAC-Friendly Operable Walls in Perth

Featuring a 5cm gap at the top and the bottom, the unique design of our operable walls means that they won’t compromise HVAC flow.

Allowing air, heat, and air conditioning to move uninhibited through your space means that you can benefit from the acoustic performance of these partitions without requiring council or building permits to install them.

Multiple Applications

Surface Finishes

Pinnable fabric with finish options in black, charcoal, cloud grey, navy blue, yellow, red, beige or any combination.

Panel Width

1.2m panels

Panel Thickness

50mm acoustic panel

Installation Requirements


Operable walls can be used on both hard surfaces and carpeted floors as long as the area is flat and even. The floor must be made from a single material as the transition between a hard surface and a carpeted one can compromise the stability of the walls and damage the sliding or folding mechanism over time.

Wall Mounting

As operable walls are set on rolling castors, securing the first panel to your wall is for stability purposes only. The connection point is not designed for load-bearing, and therefore there’s no need for permanent or structural alterations.

Acoustic Performance

Panel Sound Rating

Our operable wall panels are rated at an NRC value of approximately 0.5. This number indicates how much sound is absorbed by the surface, but does not tell you the perceived noise reduction in a room, as this will vary depending on the space.

Acoustic Seals

Our operable partition walls possess no acoustic seals.

Closure Systems

Depending on your space and needs, you can choose between a sliding (telescoping) and a folding (accordion) closing system.

Budget & Value Estimation

Prices start at $680 (inc. GST) per metre + shipping.


3 year product warranty on material and workmanship defects from the date of delivery.


With a combination of 7 colour finishes to choose from, you can customise the look and style of your operable walls to best suit your needs.

For additional alterations, such as polycarbonate windows, doors, or different sizes, please contact the Portable Partitions team to discuss your requirements.

Full Acoustic Solutions Perth & WA Wide

While our operable walls provide massive acoustic advantages by insulating one space from another, they can’t tackle all acoustic issues generated within the space they create. That’s why when good acoustic performance is a priority we recommend all our Perth customers to complement their solution with Acoustic Panels Perth to reduce noise, reverberation and minimising echo within the room at minimal extra cost per square metre.
