Fold-up, inflatable wall
Buitink Technology got a request to make a
removable or sliding door/ separation wall which could also provide
The opening to be closed was in a church
buiding where almost no space was available on the left and right
side of the space for a conventional sliding door construction. And
when not in use the construction should not be visible.
To cope with these criteria we invented a
construction to be inflated from the floor upwards. For an easy and
practical realisation of this inflatable wall we used a double
layered cloth with some space between the layers. The
inflatable wall can be printed with all possible

How does it work
When not in use the temporary wall system
would be deflated and stored in a box inside the floor. To close
the opening the top-doors of the box are opened and an
air-pump is connected to the deflated cushion. The wall inflates
automatically until a set point pressure. To make sure that the
wall will reach its final position, cables are fixed on both sides
of the opening and serve as guides to the inflating
To remove the inflatable wall, the pomp is
switched to suction position and the deflated wall falls between
the cables. The inflatable wall is then again stored in the box
below floor level.
