Service Performs a Facelift at Rockefeller Plaza
“30 Rock” is home to Saturday Night Live, Top of the Rock, The Rainbow Room, an assortment of retailers, restaurants and companies, including Deloitte Services LP, located on the 40th floor of the landmark building.
The Deloitte space features Modernfold® Acousti-Seal Paired Panels, specified by Gensler, to divide the meeting rooms. After 20 years of dedicated service provided by ModernfoldStyles, the panels were showing their age. The client scheduled a panel recovery service job to give the walls a facelift to complete their newly renovated meeting rooms.
Our factory trained technicians recently embarked on the recovery of 48 Modernfold panel faces and performed the following services:
- Plumbed all the partition panels
- Adjusted all trolley pendant bolts
- Inspected lockdowns and secured accordingly
- Inspected and lubricated track as needed
- Repaired drop seals at panel bottoms
- Replaced damaged end caps
- Installed new fabric wall covering
- Removed trim pieces and hardware
- Prepared faces for fabric installation
- Reinstalled trim pieces and hardware
- Added panic hardware
The Modernfold paired panels store neatly away in a stack area. The space may be completely transformed in minutes, opening it up for large meetings or events. This is a “before” shot of the panels during the service job.
Each pass door was carefully removed from its panel frame, then prepped and recovered. Panic hardware was removed and reinstalled for each pass door.
Our factory trained technicians removed all the fabric from the panels, then replaced with a beautiful, fresh Carnegie Xorel Dash 6603, Color 35 (in a one dye lot), with heavy acrylic backing to ensure long lasting durability.
Here’s another look at the panels during the recovery project.

The pass door received an elegant pull for easy operation.
Properly operating drop seals are important to maintain the partition’s STC sound rating capabilities. Our service technicians repaired the seals and replaced damaged end caps to keep the walls acoustically sound.
The panel recovery project was a big success! The walls look brand new, function perfectly and are ready for the next 20 years of operation. Deloitte’s Modernfold panels provide the flexibility needed to maximize space or divide it, quickly and easily.
