Movable glass wall systems are "going mainstream," according to an article published this week in Window & Door magazine and online. Your's truly was interviewed in the article. I discussed some of the trends both our Hufcor dealers and our partner, Monarch Door Systems in Barrie, Ontario have seen within northern climates--regions not typically associated with folding walls or large lift & slide doors.
According to the article, three factors are driving the rapid growth of exterior movable glass wall systems:
1. More homeowner interest
2. An expansion of sales beyond warm-weather climates
3. The entry into the market of large door and window manufacturers
Certainly I agree with all of these, but Hufcor's primary focus and expertise lies within the commercial markets and the high-end residential side of the business. The Monarch by Hufcor exterior systems are becoming very popular in the commercial construction marketplace, with an increase in natural daylighting and seamless transitions from outdoor and indoor spaces. Both types of systems--the folding walls and lift and slide systems--are showing growth as restaurants, hotels, retailers, schools and offices are looking for ways to add flexibility to their spaces and daylighting to the interiors.
And the trend in these areas is to design large, wide open spaces. Monarch by Hufcor is lock step with this trend. We offer a 77mm, thermally-broken framed system that provides the structural integrity to build the doors up to 10' tall and 4' wide. Our lift and slide doors can be built up to 10' wide. The lift and slides, if designed like a bi-parting patio door, can offer openings up to 60' wide! Now that's an enormous, visually-stunning wall system.
The Window & Door article suggests that large, multi-panel doors are starting to find their way into mid-range homes (as opposed to multi-million dollar homes in years past), with the big dogs of the window and door industry jumping into the market. Hufcor's fear is that in an effort to create a "broad appeal" (code words for - cheaper construction), the folding doors and lift and slide doors lose the quality associated with these products. We all have experienced cheap patio doors that we want to rip out of the wall and throw onto our back porch (especially if you live in a part of the country where rain, snow, sleet, and extreme temperature shifts occur)! Folding doors require precision in installation and components. These two terms are not associated with cheap. We hope that cheap, pre-fabricated offerings maintain the functionality of the premier doors on the market today from marketing leaders like Nanawall, LaCantina, Panda, Solar Innovations, Western and Monarch by Hufcor. These niche, high-end systems that have built the industry and the solid reputation of these walls.
Ease of operation is critical to customer satisfaction. And the precision components within the high-end systems like Monarch by Hufcor ensure positive customer experiences.
Hufcor can also provide a very unique exterior bifold door system, HydrauLift™, that can also open up large walls to the exterior. The Hydraulift system gives designers and owners another way to create seemless transitions from indoors to outdoors. And a nice benefit of the HydrauLift bifold door is the elimination of any planned "stacking" space for the folding doors. The bifold doors simply fold up like an airplane hangar.
The HydrauLift system uses a patented hydraulic operating system that pulls the doors tightly shut, forming a tight barrier against the elements. Here's a photo of a system at the Tribune Company building on Michigan Avenue in Chicago. The HydrauLift bifold doors surround the perimeter of an outdoor restaurant bar. In winter or bad weather, the doors are tightly closed and the bar is secure.
No doubt, movable glass wall systems are growing in popularity. Whether folding glass doors, lift and slide doors or exterior bifold doors, commercial and residential customers want seemless transitions from indoors to out and large glass openings. We thank Window & Door magazine for covering this trend so clearly in their May 2013 issue. For more information about Monarch by Hufcor, click below.
Sometimes a product grabs your attention and you simply want to let others know about it under the topic, "too cool not to blog about." The new Monarch by Hufcor lift & slide doors were featured in the May online issue of Interiors & Sources magazine. And, as I was reviewing this listing, I saw a feature article about Barrio-Carrero winning the prestigious Beard Foundation for restaurant design award. Congrats to them, but holy cow, what really caught my attention was the retractable roof/ceiling that covers the outside patio area.
You gotta watch this demonstration of the En-fold product at the Juvia Restaurant in Florida. Nifty stuff.
Folks like me in the movable wall industry get excited about building products that move. Hope you all find this fascinating and your local weather is good enough to be sitting outdoors this Friday afternoon.
I can image sitting outdoors at the Juvia Restaurant would be cool under that awesome canopy. And like this folding movable canopy, the Monarch by Hufcor movable glass walls systems help create light-filled, climate controlled spaces that combine indoor comfort with outdoor living. With large retractable bug screens, your interior spaces benefit from natural cooling airflow without pesky insects. To see more about the Monarch by Hufcor products featured in the Interiors & Sources magazine, watch the short video below.
These products scream flexibility for residential and commercial spaces. For more information on cool Monarch by Hufcor glasswall and retractable screens click below.
Last fall, McGraw-Hill published new statistics on Building Information Modeling (BIM) usage among the design community. The report, "Business Value of BIM in North American Report: 2007-2012", described how usage among architectural firms was up to 71% and contractors were engaged in BIM more than 74% of the time. The study revealed an overall growth of 75% in usage and implementation in BIM over just a two year period. This rapid implementation is leading to better managed projects, lower building costs, energy savings and, frankly, a lot of anxiety among everyone, including manufactures, involved in implementing and creating usable content to be included within an overall BIM project.
Since Hufcor first published BIM Revit families for our Summit vertical lift partition systems in 2011, we have learned much about the benefits and pitfalls of working with 3D architectural models. Most good, some bad. That's why I wanted to share an article I read this morning published in Building Design+Construction magazine. The article, written by Jared Krieger, project architect at Gensler's Washington DC office, really resonated with me. Click here to read the article titled, "6 Lessons I've Learned About Managing Complex BIM/VDC-Driven Projects". Mr. Krieger articulates concisely some key steps learned during a twin-tower student residence project at George Mason University. (As an aside, its seems making the NCAA Final Four is almost always proceded with increased student applications and new construction projects. Donors and high school seniors love a winner.)
The Building Design+Construction article's key points:
1. Don't overcomplicate the BIM execution plan.
2. Get smart about clash detection.
3. Put in prep time for virtual coordination meetings.
4. Apply the "two-inch rule."
5. Get to know your subcontractor's BIM experts.
6. Watch the consultants' display backgrounds
These are right on even from the perspective of a building products manufacturer. Within the first point, Mr. Krieger outlines a few subpoints within the execution plan, including mentioning model sizes. If one thing the Hufcor team has learned about working with design teams is Revit object sizes are critical to fitting products into an overall project's model. So as we worked with our expert BIM consulting team at Eppstein Uhen BIM/Extents in Milwaukee, our goal was to create our 600 Series operable partition models as "light" as possible. Maintain complete fuctionality, but keep the Revit families small, as to not overload the architect's overall project model. Architects fight model sizes all the time. More function with smaller file size is a key to successful project, as is working as a trusted consultant to the BIM team at the firm.
Hufcor Revit families (2012/2013 versions) are extremely detailed as well, but we also applied the "two-inch" rule in modeling our tracking systems and bottom seal mechanisms. We have many overhead track options, but our models don't get too complicated in determining the exact sizings. We offer one size for most openings and another larger size for very tall projects. That's what the architectural team needs for clash detection purposes above the ceilings. However, when designing storage pocket sizes, a very critical dimension affecting many interior design elements, the Hufcor Revit families calculate sizing automatcially and in more specific detail. Our dynamic Revit drawings actually communicate to the architect's BIM team what OUR critical dimension priorities are - where the "Two-Inch Rule" can be applied and where we really don't think that it should be. Understanding that rule and how to communicate to the architect's BIM team is very essential in large scale BIM projects.
My final comment about the article is one of working with the subcontractor's BIM experts. Frankly, I know that Mr. Krieger was refering to the many BIM outside consultants that subcontract with the firm, but we agree that key suppliers need to have experts to coordinate with the firm. That is why Hufcor has a BIM pointperson on staff to assist architects on complicated designs using operable partitions. And, when we need assistance over our own capabilities, we call on our trusted partners at Eppstein Uhen BIM/Extents for assistance.
To learn more specifics about Hufcor Revit families, please watch a short video:
I encourage you all to read the Building Design+Construction article and recommend that you see Gensler's Jared Krieger speak at the AIA Convention in Denver on June 21. For those attending the AIA show, we too ask that you stop by our booth (#3530) to meet Hufcor's BIM point person, Craig Gibeaut. Craig will be demonstrating the new dynamic Hufcor Revit families and answering questions about designing operable partitions within your projects.

Hufcor is very excited about a new wallcovering finish choice - Acoustical Harmony. Hufcor Acoustical Harmony is a unique line of sculpted carpets fabricated 100% from recycled plastic bottles. Acoustical Harmony is offered in a handful of patterns and selected color choices and offers an alternative to standard "ribbed" carpets available for decades.
Acoustical Harmony is the only non-woven wallcovering product made in the USA from 100% post-consumer recycled pastic bottles. The technology uses 15 pastic bottles to create 1 yard of acoustical wallcovering that can be recycled back into fiber at the end of it's lifecycle. Hufcor has already begun applying the Acoustical Harmony to projects, including The Proximity Hotel in Greensboro, North Carolina. The Proximity Hotel is the nation's first LEED® Platinum hotel. (In addition to the meeting room partitions shown below, Hufcor installed a series of Hufcor movable glasswall systems to divide the lobby spaces into private social areas, helping to achieve LEED daylighting and recycled materials credit.)
Acoustical Harmony folding door wallcoverings use patented Fosshield®, a material science and fiber technology that is an FDA cleared protection, incorporating silver and copper ions into the root fiber which naturally attack microbes, delivering extraordinary antimicrobial defense. Certifications include:
UL Classified - Fire Rating - Class A/ASTM E-84
NFPA 265 Corner Burn for Textile Wallcovering
UL Environmental-Certified recycled content
LEED - Contributes toward overall project certification (recycled content)
Acoustical Harmony wallcovering delivers both an important environmental statement and a visually beautiful, sculpted design story. In addition, this fantastic wallcovering has a noise reduction rating up to .25 NRC helping to bring a more tranquil noise level within the meeting rooms using the Hufcor operable partitions. Not only does it gobble up microbes, it eats up sound waves. Beauty and function are all in harmony.

Hufcor® is excited to launch our new dynamic Revit® families for the 600 Series operable partitions. Our newly produced families were developed in conjunction with Eppstein Uhen Architects, Inc., Milwaukee, WI and beta tested by a team of architects prior to launch to ensure the families meet the ever-changing needs of the AEC community. The new Hufcor Revit families eliminate the major downsides found with current movable partition BIM objects available in the market today and enhance the way architects can quickly incorporate critical elements of an operable partition within a model.
Hufcor's new "smarter" BIM Revit families includes:
Dynamic, wall-to-wall object placement allowing designers to modify the size of the partition without having to download another family or get "broken" objects.
The "smarter" BIM families will automatically calculate and model operable partition storage pocket dimensions with and without pocket doors
The Revit families allow "on the fly" application of accessories (pass doors, marker boards, pocket doors, window lites, etc.)
The Hufcor BIM file sizes average less than 700kb making them "extremely light," nearly 66% - 75% smaller than current BIM content from other typical op wall suppliers
Architects can embed links to Hufcor's online specifications and MasterSpec® subscribers can set up links directly within each Revit family to a corresponding Hufcor 600 Series Product MasterSpec and SpecAgent® file to incorporate a formated specification consistent with your Revit model.
For more details, please watch a video demonstration of how these new Hufcor 600 Series operable partition Revit families are truly the next generation of dynamic Revit content.
Hufcor beta testers were really wonderful in improving functionality that architects really desire. Here's what beta users are saying:
"Wow, I’ve only played around a little so far – but these are really nice.. been waiting for something like this for YEARS"
"Perhaps the most important feature for me is the ability to adjust panel width/number of panels so we can manipulate the pocket proportion. Nice work!"
If you'd like us to email you the new Hufcor "smarter" BIM Revit families click below.
Hufcor distributors can assist you as well in designing your operable partitions and receiving the new BIM revit drawings. Certainly, the Hufcor 600 Series partitions are exported throughout the world for major projects requiring very tall panels. Yet, for architects outside the United States, the Hufcor 600 Series product and new Revit families may not be available or applicable for your specific project. To contact the local representative and to find the quality Hufcor products manufactured in your region, please click here.
Building Information Modeling's future depends of higher performing content that doesn't take up massive file sizes. Hufcor's development team spent painstaking time in programming the new Revit families to provide efficient file sizes. Architects that have had previews of the drawings have all raved about how small the files are to work with, even when dealing with large, complicated projects like the one shown below.
With the new BIM Revit families, the Hufcor, Inc. design team can assist architects developing complicated layouts with many of the traditional accessories items required on a project - pass doors, panic hardware, marker boards, field-applied face finishes, etc.
With all of the built-in functionality, we hope you too share Hufcor's excitement with our new BIM Revit families for the 600 Series operable partitions.

Last weekend, Hufcor's VP Sales & Marketing, Mark Blanchard, was quoted in an article in the Janesville Gazette business section about strong exports being reported from Rock County, Janesville, WI area companies. Currently, Hufcor is on pace for near record levels of exported operable partitions to projects all over the globe - Chile, Qatar, India, Saudi Arabia, Russia, United Kingdom, Korea, Brazil, Australia and many others. Although Hufcor has 12 additional manufacturing facilities throughout the world, our export business remains strong from our corporate facility located in Janesville, WI. Why? I believe that the quality of our moveable walls are a reflection of the Midwestern work ethic of our workforce. Even in delicate economic times, our dedicated, quality-conscience teams build the best operable partitions in the world - rooted right here in Janesville, WI.
But this is nothing new for Janesville. Janesville has always been home of some of the most recognizable, quality brands on the planet. Parker Pen was founded in Janesville and remains an internationally recognized brand of high-end writing instruments. When I was in Hong Kong recently, my hotel room overlooked a huge billboard promoting the Parker brand. A little piece of home while I was half-way across the world. The Parker brand continues to be an international standard for quality writing instruments. All started here in Janesville.
Did you all know that a famous farm implement super store chain, Blain's Farm & Fleet, is based in Janesville? Most people in this part of the country agree, "that if Farm & Fleet doesn't have it, you don't need it." Down to earth, real value products for everyday living are core values of the products within Farm & Fleet and the people of Janesville.
And, of course, for decades General Motors built all sorts of different automobiles, trucks and SUVs in a huge assembly facility in Janesville. Even though the GM plant has closed, hundreds of the workforce still commute to different GM plants to assemble cars and trucks. The people of Janesville being exported to build quality GM cars.
Speaking of people exports, by now, you probably know that one of Janesville's most famous "exports" nearly was elected vice-president of the United States. Janesville's own, Paul Ryan, the republican vice-vresidential candidate, calls Janesville, WI home. (Pictured here on the USS Wisconsin battleship in Virginia.)
No matter what side of the political fense we as individuals that make up the Hufcor family fall, we've gotta be proud of Janesville's now most famous export, Paul Ryan. What most of the country didn't see about Paul was that he also was running for his local congressional seat. During that local campaign, Paul ran a series of commercials seen only on Wisconsin television stations that were filmed at the Hufcor headquarter's main production facility.
I guess even Paul recognized the value of the Hufcor brand. Interesting enough, while filming these commercials, Hufcor was assembling panels to be exported to Doha, Qatar.
What struck me during Paul's vice-presidential campaign was how close to home he really was as he traveled the country giving speeches and meeting with the American public. Because as he stumpped in huge convention centers, hotel ballrooms, universities and school gymnasiums, there we were, the Hufcor operable partitions that divided these spaces, standing behind our local export. Nearly every night, you could see quick video clips of Paul standing in front of Hufcor operable partitions.
In places like:
Boston Convention Center, Boston, MA
General Mitchell Field Airport, Milwaukee, WI
West Springfield School District, Springfield, VA
Craig High School, Janesville, WI
We don't know if Paul ever realized that in many places he was, there we were standing tall behind him. A little home town touch in a grueling, hard fought campaign. We congratulate his efforts and for being reelected to congress representing Hufcor's district.
Be it a national political candidate, a set of new tires from Farm & Fleet, a precision writing instrument like Parker Pen or the world's leading brand of operable partitions from Hufcor, we are proud of our Janesville roots. Roots that run deep and being exported all around the globe. For more information on Hufcor operable partition exports, visit us at www.hufcor.com.
Since April, I've blogged a couple of times about the Hufcor® SMARTITION™ rotating walls. And I've tried not to get too marketing-centric in my enthusiasm for the product. But, what the heck, we sometimes simply need to toot your own horn once in a while. Here at Hufcor we’re always looking for and listening to our customers for the next big idea in moveable walls—the next innovation that will take our clients’ projects to the next level of flexibility. With our SMARTITION rotating wall solution, our goal was to optimize interactive classroom technology, providing a solution for educational institutions that want to share technology across multiple classrooms and at the same time have a flexible rotating wall that provides fixed room configurability and access from room to room.
Since we introduced the SMARTITION, we’ve been recognized by the Council of Educational Facility Planners International (CEFPI) as a top design and been included in the AST&R ZoN: School of the Future project. And now we’re thrilled to announce that we’ve received the 2012 Product Innovation Award from Architectural Products magazine. The award was announced in the November issue of AP, which highlights top innovations from across the industry as voted by an independent group of industry professionals.
This award has everyone's head spinning here at Hufcor. (Sorry, I couldn't help myself with that one.) Seriously, though, the engineering, customer support and manufacturing teams should be proud of this new product development and launch for the SMARTITION rotating wall system.
I just returned from a trip to visit the Hufcor Asia Pacific teams in Hong Kong and Panyu/Guanghzou, China and saw first hand the new Hufcor 600 Series movable walls rolling down the production lines. Hufcor Asia Pacific is in full production of Series 600 products and supplying operable partitions throughout the region.
The Hufcor 600 Series panels have the same precision welded steel frames as the U.S. manufactured 600 Series panels. The Hufcor 600 Series panels are a uniquely positioned product for the Pacific Rim markets. Hufcor is unaware of any Chinese competitor that manufacturers precision welded steel frames utilizing automated welding processes. These frames are extremely rigid and durable for the most heavy traffic areas using operable partitions including hotel ballrooms, schools and convention centers. And, Hufcor Asia Pacific can provide this system on a single frame up to 43 ft. (13m) for use in meeting facilities throughout Asia requiring heavy duty, tall panels.
Durable steel faces are another benefit of the Hufcor 600 Series panel construction. The above photo demonstrates the steel skins cut to size and ready for assembly of a project for Hilton Hotels. These steel skins provide a durable surface for high traffic use and the density needed to stop sound from traveling through the partition when installed within a hotel meeting room or ballroom. Hufcor's new Panyu facility has installed new steel fabrication equipment to feed two 600 Series production lines with the steel panel faces required to meet the growing demand throughout the region.
Our new Panyu factory and regional operations facilities are nearing final stages of completion. Located within 90 minutes of both Hong Kong and Guanghzou, the new factory is Hufcor's supply chain to the southeast China region for all of our movable wall panels including Series 600, 5000R Series and CT680 panels offering a full range of both performance features and budget requirements. Moreover, the plant has easy access to key ports that provide Hufcor the capability to supply 600 Series to customers throughout the Asia Pacific region.
Hufcor is extremely excited about the new facility, but more importantly proud of the dedicated teams at both the Panyu and Hong Kong offices. These teams have decades of operable partition experience and are poised to provide flexible space solutions for any project. Click "Hufcor Asia Pacific movable walls" to see Hufcor operable partition panels, all designed, engineered, manufactured and installed by the dedicated teams from our Hufcor Asia Pacific offices throughout China.
In addition to the new factory, the Hufcor Asia Pacific team has launched a new website. Visit www.hufcor.com.hk to see some fantastic installations throughout the region for some of the best known hosptiality chains and commercial customers.
Congratulations to the staffs at our offices in Shanghai, Guanghzou, Bejing, Hong Kong and Panyu for these great accomplishments and expansions. For more information on the Hufcor 600 Series operable partitions and movable walls supplied throughout the world, please visit www.hufcor.com.hk or Hufcor Movable Walls Around the World.
