On February 1 & 2 we welcomed a big part of our European dealers in Harderwijk for the ultimate Halo Experience. During this two half days event, we brought our dealer partners up-to-speed about Halo.

On Thursday, we started of with an extended presentation about Halo. After this presentation, the dealers had the opportunity to enter the Halo showroom. In this showroom they got to experience different types of Halo firsthand. This turned out to be a positive way to experience Halo’s outstanding acoustics and see the different configuration possibilities Halo has to offer.

Also, two of our European Dealer Council Members (DCM) were present. Paul from DiPa and Jens from proroomz gave a presentation about being a DCM member. Also, the dealers had the opportunity to take part in several break-out sessions, were they were able to experience a live sound demo, how to reconfigure Halo and how to draw Halo in Maars 4D.

On Friday, we received extended feedback from our dealers, since we together discussed all Halo’s possibilities and threats and together we created Halo’s SWOT. Besides informing them about Halo, we also took the opportunity to give presentations about Cleanrooms and our new wall Metaline125 and new Framed Double Glazed door.

The Halo Experience was a very good opportunity to get feedback from our dealers. We are very happy with the response our dealers gave us about the event and that they went home inspired and with many new ideas.

In week 40, our R&D  department tested the Metaline125 wall in the acoustic laboratory of Peutz, resulting in very positive results. The acoustic tests have demonstrated that the wall performs admirably, achieving sound insulation levels of up to 61 dB with a 10 mm track and up to 59 dB with a 35 mm track, depending on the specific configuration.

As the name suggests, the Metaline125 wall has a thickness of 125mm. It is composed of freestanding double String² studs with Metaline panels. This particular version of Metaline has been developed as a solution for demising walls in situations where a high level of acoustic performance is required. The Metaline 125 wall is only available as a solid steel wall and can connect to Double Horizon.

The ownership has previously been held by the global furniture company MillerKnoll, a select group of MillerKnoll dealers and Maars Management.

For this extensive renovation we have delivered and installed our glass partition walls. With these walls known for their flexibility we ensure a sustainable and future proof interior design.

Shells Dutch headquarter is a 25.000 square meter building which is a national monument dated from 1917. The building has been used as an office for over a century. During the renovation this magnificent old building has been made future proof.

Maars delivered its Panorama and Horizon wall systems. Both walls are certified with Cradle to Cradle Silver. The glass walls are combined with Flush Glass Deur which creates a seamless connection with the walls.

Panorama is a double glazed wall system known for its high flexibility without having to compromise on acoustic performances.

Both glass walls are on one or both sides installed using Polar White glass, this creates a really unique design.
