Moveable Walls | Teknion | Altos

Altos® is an innovative architectural wall system designed with clean, crisp lines to harmonize with building interiors.

Altos® is an innovative architectural wall system designed with clean, crisp lines to harmonize with building interiors. Use of laminate, veneer, glass and fabric allows creative application of finishes. Thin, anodized frames project a modern aesthetic,
while vertical and horizontal reveals add visual interest. Simple and efficient, Altos facilitates cost-effective reconfiguration or full relocation as required. Its unique universal framework allows changes in elevation, dimension, Fascia function and finish to maximize the life of the product.

Altos provides a perfect balance of form and function:
· Understated Design – clean, crisp European aesthetic.
· Functionality – fully relocatable, modular wall system.
· Integration – interfaces with building architecture and integrates with furniture products.
· Sustainability – reusable parts promote environmental responsibility.
· Acoustics/Performance – offers both sound-blocking and sound-absorbing properties.
· Return on Investment – easily reconfigured components translate to low cost of ownership.
· Technology – clear wall cavity accepts three types of electrics, both hard-wired and quick-disconnect systems; as well as standard off-the-shelf UL/CSA approved boxes.
 
Function
Altos is a completely modular wall system offered as a series of individual components. It is constructed as a build-up and shipped disassembled to easily reconfigure and relocate between floors or buildings.
· Universal Framework – Fascias can be removed and interchanged and wall elevations changed without deconstructing the framework, saving time and costs.
· Hanging Components – vertical posts have standard slotting at every inch, permitting overhead cabinets, worksurfaces and accessories to be hung at any height.
· Durability vs. drywall – Altos Fascias require less time and expense to replace versus the repair or reconstruction of drywall.

INTEGRATION

Integration with Architecture
Altos walls can be used in any building environment and almost anywhere on a floorplate. Vertical posts with 1-inch increments accommodate standard ceiling heights between 8 and 10 feet. Non-standard ceiling heights can also be fitted.
· Building Interface – vertical posts enable vertical adjustment of +2 inches and -1 inch, adapting to floor variances; walls can begin at the building perimeter, window mullions, columns or drywall.
· Special Architectural Conditions – Altos adapts to site conditions and architectural features with standard size panels which can be cut in the field for scribing around window sills, bulkheads, etc.
 
Integration with Furniture
Altos offers functional and aesthetic integration with Teknion’s Optos seamless glass wall, systems furniture, casegoods, storage and seating. Altos also accommodates lighting requirements and raised floor applications.
· Wall-Mounted Furniture – to conserve floor space and enhance functionality, walls are compatible with Transit worksurfaces and accept shelving and mounted storage.
 
Sustainability
Unlike drywall, Altos walls are completely reusable – making Altos the sustainable product choice.
Environmental Responsibility.
· Reduces drywall construction and demolition waste shipped to landfills.
· Reduces carpet waste associated with cutting around drywall construction.
· Reduces on-site dust, noxious fumes and noise pollution associated with drywall.
· Improves indoor air quality associated with lack of drywall dust and paint fumes.
· PVC- and Neoprene- free.
 
Certification / Code Compliance.
· GREENGUARD® Indoor Air Quality.
· ISO 9001-2000 Quality Management System.
· ISO 14001-2004 Environmental Management System.
· Meets ICC-ES building code standards, including compliance for seismic zones.
· CSA/UL certified.

Acoustics
Altos walls provide both sound-blocking and sound-absorbing properties. Altos’ ability to block sound transmission equals or exceeds standard drywall construction or other wall systems. No insulation is required to achieve normal speech privacy.
STC (Sound Transmission Class)
· Solid monolithic elevation provides:
- 40 STC with no insulation
- 48 STC with insulation
· Double Glazed full-height elevation provides:
- 38 STC 
- A balance of acoustic privacy and light penetration
· Acoustic fascias provide:
- 40 STC with recycled cotton insulation
- 32 STC with no insulation
· Standard drywall construction:
- 38-40 STC with no insulation
NRC (Noise Reduction Coefficient)
· Acoustic fascias provide:
- 0.75 NRC

Technology
Designed to handle technology, Altos walls are 4 inches thick with 2½ inches of accessible, clear cavity space that allows wires to be run horizontally and vertically. Altos electrics are contained in a metal conduit with RF shielding for separate power/data integrity.
Receptacle Locations
· Base height.
· 18-inch height.
· Worksurface height.
· 42-inch height for switches.
· Custom locations easily accommodated.
Three Types of Electrics
· Field Supplied
- client customized
- standard or isolated circuit wire system
· Hardwire
- each receptacle fed individually
- standard or isolated circuit wire system
· Modular Electrics 
- allows for spine planning and routing power between receptacles
- requires fewer connections to building power
- cost-effective and easy to reconfigure
- compatible with systems furniture
- supports 4- to 8-wire systems
