Founded in 1925, Modernfold, Inc. is proud this year to observe its 90th anniversary as a premier manufacturer of space division products that meet the need for optimum space utilization.

Modernfold pioneered the movable wall industry, and since then has continued to provide innovative solutions in acoustically rated operable partitions, accordion doors, and movable glass walls. For nearly a century, Modernfold, Inc. has manufactured products as beautiful as they are useful, serving generations of developers, architects, interior designers, institutions and property owners.

This long-standing tradition is now more powerfully driven than ever. Today’s Modernfold brings to the marketplace innovation and technology that sets the pace in space utilization.

Acousti-Seal® Encore® has changed the way the architectural community and building owners view operable partitions by providing ultimate aesthetics and acoustical performance with a 56 STC.

Modernfold’s newest glass wall system, Acousti-Clear®, provides the highly desired daylighting option while providing the much needed acoustical control with a family of acoustically rated glass wall systems. Modernfold’s Acousti-Clear® Systems provide exceptional sound control with a 45 STC sound rating on glass partitions - maintaining a quiet, productive work space by substantially reducing distracting noises that may occur on the opposite side of the partition.

“We at Modernfold are very proud of our history and even more excited about the future,” said President/CEO Bryan Welch. “Our distribution partners are the most professional specialty contractors in the industry. Our employees are committed to providing exceptional products and service to our customers. We pride ourselves on serving all facets - architects, designers, contractors, and owners - of the construction industry.”
