In the middle of Germany our gold partner proroomz.gmbh designed this BMW dealer showroom with Maars partition walls.

See more about this project.

With Horizon, Metaline, Styleline and String2 we designed this showroom into different areas for different purposes.

For the entrée of the showroom we installed Styleline with an automatic glass sliding door, and a custom ceiling beam, to keep the open space. We have created an impressive entrance where our Styleline partition proves to still offer maximum versatility and flexibility. Furthermore the lounge and reception area at the entrance is made with our String² partition also with an automated sliding door.

With Horizon single glazed walls, we created separate booths for sales people. A minimalistic design which creates a define place where sales people can invite their customers.

For the office spaces we installed Horizon with Metaline door frames and integrated media panels. From the office area above you have a great view on the showroom.

For the first time in our company history, Maars is holding a stock of products in the United States. Stock for Horizon in Matte Black finish and for the M923.

  • With this program we will be able to serve the US market with faster delivery and lower freight costs.

This will allow us to better serve our customers and fulfill needs for fast-turnaround and smaller projects.

With this Quick Ship Program we can deliver

  • Quick lead team within three weeks
  • Superior quality
  • Flexibility

Want to know more about the Quick Ship Program? Please reach out to us!

Dealers can place orders up to a certain value the same way as usual and orders will be fulfilled by our dealer partners.

  • The Horizon stock will be stocked in the US by our dealer partner, OP Houston and the M923. stock will be stocked by our dealer partner Intereum.
  • M923.

When M923. was designed, the goal was to always carry a stock of product in the United States. The M923. stock program contains profiles and panels in all standard finishes like powder coat, fabric, moss, markerboard, and transparent!

 

From the stock locations in Minneapolis and Houston the products will be shipped to locations all around North America.

String² and Metaline have achieved the highest classification for burning behavior in our company history. This is not a classification of fire rating but of how components burn when they are already on fire.

Both walls, in the steel versions, are certified with class A2. For partition walls, this is the highest possible classification.

Part of this test is the smoke development, smoke intensity, and falling (“drop”) of debris.

To be certified, the walls had to pass two tests. In the first test conform NEN-EN3823, the wall was subjected to a flame test, to determine the propagation on the surface, the degree of smoke development, and the smoke intensity.

The first test was completed successfully. Only then the wall can proceed with the second test, after which where the value of all testing is determined conform NEN-EN ISO11925-2. Both Metaline and String2 passed both tests well, resulting in: A2 – S1 , D0 (Smoke 1 and Droplets 0)

Public spaces such as schools, town halls, and libraries are projects that often require certification on burning behavior. With these great results our Metaline and String2 walls, fully meet this requirement.

This classification is valid in Europe. 

As a metal wholesaler, MCB International is as much of a fan of steel as we are. In fact, MCB is also a supplier for certain parts of our steel partition walls. MCB supplies a wide variety of products in all kinds of metals such as steel, copper, and aluminum. It was important for MCB’s new office design that these products are integrated in the office.

M + R architects from Eindhoven took the challenge of incorporating the products into the design. “Our responsibility is creating sustainable architecture that can stand the test of time”

Several cubes have been placed in the office. These cubes consist of String² partition walls in combination with Panorama from Maars Living Walls. Steel panels and Bi Block window frames are used from the String² line.

The outside of the cubes are covered with products that MCB markets. We see different products in all shapes and sizes such as sheet steel, pipes and profiles, all in metal.

Next to the walls with which the cubes are formed, Maars also supplied the doors that fit seamlessly into the walls. XL glass doors were chosen, and a 60-minute fire-resistant requirement was set for a number of doors.

A great project, where Maars Living Walls fits perfectly!

The headquarter in Amsterdam of this leading company that is active over 150 years in their branche, is designed with Maars partition walls.

A high-end and transparent design was one of the most important things for this office. Curved Horizon creates the desired look and feel. Besides this fancy design, privacy was just as important for our client.

That’s why we choose to install the unique Acoustic sliding door. This glazed sliding door reaches an acoustic value of 35dB and with that they are unique in its way.

A sliding door creates a high-end design without the loss of privacy.

The new, sustainable office for Triodos Bank in Driebergen-Rijsenburg has been built demountable. After the lifespan of the office, the office can be dissembled, after which the parts and materials can be reused.

The new Triodos Bank office has a surface of almost 13,000 m2 spread over three towers of two, three and five floors. The office is provided with as much natural light as possible, to which our lalinea glass walls, the first wall you will hardly see, allowing natural light in the space.

The project for Triodos Bank connects culture, nature and the economy and it excels in sustainability and circularity. Besides the fact that the office itself is energy neutral, it is also important that parts and materials that were used were demountable.

Maars wall systems are easy to dismantle and reassemble and therefore contribute to this demountable office. The building has a BREEAM Outstanding certificate, making it one of the top 12% most sustainable buildings in the Netherlands.

This project is a joint development of Triodos Bank and EDGE Technologies. Construction has been done by J.P. van Eesteren.

The M923. is known for its flexibility and functionality. The freestanding, a new configuration of the M923. makes the wall system even more flexible. The wall is attached to a base with a feet or caster and is therefore easy to move!  The M923. freestanding is a welcome solution in a time were flexible boundaries are required.

The freestanding is nothing like the partitioning systems Maars is known for. It is a system where modern wall decoration, movable walls and functional office furniture meet.

For stability reasons, the product is limited in length up to 2.5 modules. The freestanding is attached to a rigid base on casters or glides, which ensures even more flexibility.

Panels can be mounted on both sides of the framework, up to a maximum of four panels. The backing of the panels is black and nicely finished. So therefor it is not necessary to mount panels on both sides. Also the layout of the framework is up to the end use, similar as M923. and therefor still gives that interaction with the end-user as we know.

The panels can be mounted in to the framework using a magnet strip and four safety clips. . This system, once installed according to the instructions Maars has given, will comply to ANSI/BIFMA X5.6 and EN1023-3.

The M923. Freestanding knows the same finishes like the M923. The moss and cork panels are for stability reasons excluded.

The freestanding M923. where modern wall decoration, movable walls and functional office furniture meet! The freestanding has the same finishes as the M923. only two panels are excluded: moss and cork.

In week 39 the freestanding will be available in Maars 4D and therefore ready for order entry! In week 38 we expect a renewed product sheet for the M923. Which also includes the freestanding. Here you can read all technical specifications!

A first final M923. freestanding is already introduced during the Paris Design Week! This week Herman Miller participates  at Paris Design Week and Maars Living Walls is joining. A perfect moment to introduce the first final version of the M923. freestanding.

Openness and transparency are one of the major trends in our interiors, which is a trend that can bring some acoustic challenges. A meeting or telephone conversation requires concentration, silence, and privacy, and Maars Living Walls can provide all these.

Closed steel walls have a high mass, and a high sound insulation up to 60dB is not a problem for our steel walls. We know how to achieve a sound insulation of 60db in a steel wall that is not even 4 inches thick. We first do extensive testing ourselves in our own sound lab, so we know for sure whether the development is delivering the desired performance.

In addition to sound insulation, acoustics in a room are just as important. A long reverberation time in a room is disturbing and distracting. Something that does not benefit the purpose of a space. For spaces with poor acoustics, perforations that absorb sound can be made in our steel walls.

Sound-absorbing material is also added to the inside of the wall. This sound absorption enables a high absorption class of αw> 0.75. The best of acoustics without compromising on sound insulation. The installation of a thin steel cassette in the wall prevents the sound insulation from being negatively affected.

A wall is nothing without a suitable door. And we believe that a door should not negatively affect the sound insulation of the complete partition system. In addition to partition walls, we manufacture an extensive range of doors, including various steel doors of 40mm and 100 mm thickness. A door that of course connects seamlessly to the wall, without compromising on the sound insulation of the wall.

Thanks to different insulation materials, any desired sound insulation (> 44 dB) can be achieved. The sound insulation of our doors has been demonstrated, in an acoustically accredited laboratory where the entire door, including frame and hardware, has been tested.

The result? The best acoustic performance in the partition walls industry!

For the new head office of Qatar Pretoleum District, we manufactured, delivered, and installed more than one hundred thousand square meters of Maars walls. The office has ten towers in total, six of them will be provided with the Maars living walls.

We supplied various wall systems and door types for this project. String² Melamine panels, Panorama light with single and double glazing, 4000 single glass doors, 400 XL flush glass doors and 80 wooden doors.

The six towers are divided between two different contractors, Al Balagh and Al Ghanim. The project started in June 2019 together with these two contractors. The architect who designed the towers had Maars walls in his specification. In addition, 13 other wall systems were specified. Of all wall systems, Maars was chosen as the best solution for the project!

It is not the first time that Maars supplied walls for a project of a size like this. However, it always is challenging. That is of course because of the size, our production is often focused on the QPD project for weeks in a row.

The walls and doors must be manufactured, delivered and installed within nine months, a short lead time which means that our production facility is now extra focused and efficient.

The installation must be ready by the end of November, and now we are busy with the installation. The design of the building is curved. This also presents challenges during installation. Our dealer AlKaabi Contracting, who has been a Maars dealer for over 18 years, takes care of the installation of this challenging project.

Just a few more weeks and then we hope to be able to share the end result. A result with a hundred thousand square meters of Maars walls, that remains impressive!
