The ultimate flexible

Versatile partitioning solutions that set offices and buildings apart from the rest.


Aluglass Bautech’s custom-designed and manufactured products have been used in many prestigious local and international projects. When it comes to flexible and versatile solutions, Aluglass Bautech has the ideal solution to address any project need.

From entrances, conference rooms, auditoria to training rooms and laboratories, the Variflex range is ideal for clients who need privacy and can benefit from the acoustic advantages that this product offers. These partitions can be used to sub-divide rooms. Noise through ceilings and ceiling voids will be limited through complete sound treatment. If your project is an office, hospital, place of worship, educational facility or community facility, Variflex partitions offer the ideal solution for you.

Variflex permits flexible room layouts, subdivides meeting venues, and the elements of the partitions can be neatly parked to one side or into a niche. This range was manufactured according to international design standards, with the highly efficient team that is always available for technical assistance and back-up.
