Singularis needed to provide a novel way for the client to quickly move a series of 15, 30-ft tall walls of absorber by hand, without any metal components. Singularis engineered a free-floating hanger type system, where the custom track and castors needed to allow for slight angular tilting to clear obstacles in the chamber and to move smoothly. After a scaled down prototype was designed and tested, the resulting fiberglass walls were fabricated and installed by Singularis in December 2019. They are rolling smoothly to date!
