A locally certified PortaFab Distributor worked with PortaFab’s engineering team to create an optimal solution that satisfy every one of Ford’s specific needs while still utilizing PortaFab’s pre-engineered components.
For the wall’s framing system, PortaFab’s freestanding OmniFlex 300 wall system was specified for its ability to meet the 5lb. per square foot lateral load requirement for interior walls over 60” tall.
Steel Fired & Sound Panels
To provide the desired durability and visibility, PortaFab’s Steel Fired & Sound panels with extra tall tempered glass panels were specified. The glass windows were positioned 4’ off the ground to achieve the look Ford desired while the steel panels were painted with an easy-to-clean white finish.
Finally, PortaFab engineers worked with Ford to integrate doors into the enclosed area and utilized 45 degree angled corner frames to fully maximize the designated space available within the plant’s support columns.
Quick & Cost Effective
Once complete and installed, Ford had truly accomplished its goals. The steel and glass enclosure effectively showcased the area as a Center of Excellence while also helping control quality, sound and access. Best of all, the pre-engineered solution was designed and installed quickly and cost-effectively and has the flexibility to adapt to future changes.
